Massey Hall is still a superior place to go and see a show. The sound is second to none and never fails to impress. If you really want to hear music, then a show at Massey Hall is a must. Gordon Lightfoot's shows in November...More

We attended Massey Hall for a Christmas concert in December. Our right-side gallery front-row seats (top level) allowed a great view of the whole place. The acoustics are excellent. The seats are relatively small and there are number of pillars that obstruct views but are priced accordingly. The...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

I am pretty sure no outside food or drinks is allowed. They have their own bar but I believe like most places they still don't like anything from outside brought in.
