Nightlife in Toronto: A Guide to the Best Bars

Toronto’s nightlife scene is as varied as the crowd it attracts. From Vegas-style lounges to after-hours nightclubs to relaxed sports bars, there are options to suit every mood. 

But that shouldn’t be surprising in a city that has its own signature cocktail — a blend of Canadian whisky, Fernet-Branca, angostura bitters, and simple syrup, natch. But if you prefer beer or wine to mixed drinks, never fear. Toronto has just as robust a selection of breweries, taprooms, wine bars and live music joints ready to provide a fun time and some pours any night of the week.
