Nightlife in Toronto

Toronto is home to one of North America's most vibrant theatre scenes. Most venues, including Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall, are located within the Entertainment District. Sports are also popular in Toronto, especially Canada's beloved hockey, with venues located near the Harbourfront. Watch hockey or basketball games at Air Canada Centre, then head for a beer at Wayne Gretzky's or PJ O'Brien. Toronto's high-energy gay nightlife is centred in the Church-Wellesley district.
