It seems hidden, but is one of Toronto's classics! The place is old but in a decent enough shape, really big inside... So well build that even if you buy the cheapest tickets, you are going to enjoy the show!

Massey Hall is still a fantastic place to see a concert. It is a wonderful old building in quite good condition. The sound in this venue has been very good whenever I attended, one of the main reasons this is such a good concert venue....More

Saw Ricky Gervais, a fantastic evening, outrageous, but so so funny. Massey Hall is fantastic, we had great seats and the view of the stage was perfect. Every word was clear and the service in the bar was good. Love this venue.

We were so looking forward to see Ricky Gervais but we couldn't enjoy the show because of the seats we had in the gallery. There is no leg room. By the end of the show, we both had welts on our knees from the seats...More

Had tixs on the upper balcony, and even though warned about the size of seats, WOW. My son and I sat rather poorly, but if not for the quality of the show, we do not know if we would have stayed for it all. That...More

A concert at Massey Hall offers great acoustics, great music and a glimpse into wonderful, old Toronto. It has been restored enough to keep the charm of this lovely old building. The climb to the upper galleries reinforces the sense that this is a tall...More

Best concert venue in Toronto! We have been to about a dozen concerts at MH over the past decade. Acts from Blue Rodeo to Steve Earle to Norah Jones. Great acoustics and authentic vibe. Most recently, we attended 4 Voices with Joan Baez, Mary Chapin...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

We’re unsure if Massey Hall has a coat check/bag check. Best to contact the box office at Massey Hall and enquire.
