“Unorganized”

Guvernment/Koolhaus Entertainment Complex
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 December 2012

We went to the Final Destination event hosted by crown events. The tickets were purchased from a promoter. They advertise that they had 8 rooms with 8 different sounds, smoke cannons, free energy drinks, prizes and a 19+ room since it was an all ages event and that the doors open at 8. Upon arrival the doors didn't open until 9. It was a cold night to stand and wait. The staff were rushed and very rude. Once inside they only had 4 rooms open and energy drinks for 4.50 each. No prizes. Pushy preteens and teens who shoved people out of the way and into walls. Some of the girls had to have been only 13 were dancing in polite terms "like what dogs do to make puppies" and the older, mature groups of people were shaking their heads in disbelief. We tried to find the 19+ section but were told by the staff that they didn't have one and no alcohol was being served which defeats the purpose of clubbing. We ended up leaving after 2 and a half hours because it was worse than a bad high school dance. For the 20 dollars a ticket we paid it felt like a major ripoff. Can't say I'm impressed and judging from the amount of others leaving I'm not alone in this thought.

I have been to clubs all over but nowhere compares to as great a time as Guvernment. They bring in the best world class DJ's and Toronto is lucky to have a place that has been running as long as here. If you love electronic music this is the place to be. Try it at least once in your life but keep an open mind! :)

Been here twice (Labour of Love and Viva) and had an amazing time at both. Excellent music, huge rooms, beautiful girls... what more could you want. Water is expensive and some people look sketchy but then again, who doesn't look sketchy at these events? The Freezies that they sell when the bar closes and the room feels like 60 degrees Celsius taste amazing

I had a great time at this club and to be honest, I was impressed! One of the best clubs I've visited, second only to Coco Bongo in Cancun! The place is huge, there's about 20 rooms inside (so much I didn't find them all!), each with a unique ambience and decor. The terrasse on the roof is very nice, one could spend the entire evening there. There's something for everyone, including a shisha bar. The place is very modern. There's an after-hour/rave venue which is included with the cover charge (be sure to buy your entrance for the entire complex as you can pay for only a few rooms if you prefer). Plenty of parking spaces on the streets nearby. A must in Toronto!

Great service great people, and beautiful location. Beautiful women and great music. Worth the $250 charge the hotel gave us for not smoking in the room but it smelling like it.
