Nightlife Activities for Age 35+ Professionals

Hi. My sister and I will be visiting Toronto in late May, from a Thursday night until a Sunday afternoon. We were seeking some nightlife activities (lounges, wine bars, general bars, etc.) that 1) weren't overflowing with 20-somethings up to early 30-somethings; 2) offered dancing, if possible; and/or 3) had a somewhat mellow, laidback, and unpretentious ambiance. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. ~Christine

Thanks! This is very helpful. I see Reservoir Lounge has many positive reviews. I will definitely add it on my list as a place to go. Thanks!

Also check out the LuLa Lounge

http://www.lula.ca/

and the Drake Hotel

www.thedrakehotel.ca/happenings/listings/

and the Gladstone Hotel

gladstonehotel.com/events/…todays-events

The last two are also nice Boutique Hotels if you haven't already booked a place to stay.

And closer to your date of arrival check out the Now Magazine http://www.nowtoronto.com/ or The Grid http://www.eyeweekly.com/ for specific events you might like to catch.

Have fun!

You should go to Yorkville area. Lots of restaurants and lounges at night.

On friday night check out Babaluu night club located on Yorkville street opposite the Four Seasons hotel. Lots of dancing here along with nice bar and good people.

For an upscale bar, I like Avenue in Yorkville. For a pub, I like the Monk's Table.

I'm visiting Bloke & 4th this weekend, will report back if the crowd is decent for 35+. http://blokeand4th.com/

My friend is having his 40th birthday party at the Bowery. torontolife.com/daily/…

The Esplanade location of Biermarkt is really loud. I like the King St West location of the Biermarkt more. The crowd seems a little less rowdy on King St W, and it seems to be less of a meat market.

Beer Bistro on King near Yonge is busy with 35+ professionals after work.

You will love Toronto!

Two wine bar picks:

Swirl Wine Bar

(second floor is great for a night of girl talk!!

Enoteca Sociale

http://www.sociale.ca

(a cozy, rustic Italian meal, that still feels hip with a energetic vibe, love it!):

For something different, but that is getting a lot of buzz right now (and is a fun night out)!:

Spin Toronto (of all things a ping pong place like no other) check out these articles/links for more...
