“Not worth the prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

If you are looking for good restaurants, bars, clubs or lounges, do your research, there are much better places in the city than those found in the "Entertainment District"

“Food, Concerts, Theatre.....is there anything else.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

If you have tickets to a play or a concert it's worth the trip. For dinner or lunch, I would venture a little north of King St for better restaurants. St. Patrick subway stop only 1 short block away. I love live theatre & concerts. There are often children's concerts at Roy Thompson Hall & you might be able to catch something like The Lion King. For seating at Roy thompson Hall, if you aren't obsessed with seeing the whole orchestra while you're listening to the music, the cheaper seats are just as good as the best seats. There are often short concerts at noon that are free.....check the internet or the newspaper. For the Royal Alexander Theatre.....get good seats on main floor, especially if you are taller than 5'6". I had to leave a good play because we were in the first balcony & I was getting cramps in my legs. Don't go to the top balccony to sve money....we call them the "nose-bleeders". This is a very old theatre with few washroom & public spaces......so go to the washroom before the play. Having said all this, I still love this theatre. One suggestion if you want to save money on tickets, get the very last row of the orchestra if some are available. These seats are elevated & are the best seats in the house.....a Torontonian secret.

“Princess wales theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

Attended a matinee performance of War Horse. The theater is lovely and large and it appears that most orchestra seats have good viewing of the stage. I was in Row K on the aisle which was ideal. The cast did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life. After awhile your mind made you believe that the horses were real. The cast that operated the horses did a extremely good job. I was I was in Toronto longer just to experience more shows.

Lively, attractive; human-scale mix of old and new buildings; huge range of places to eat, drink, go to concerts or the theatre, or just people-watch. Its days may be numbered; condo towers are encroaching.
