    Toronto's Entertainment District

    It's got something for everyone: shopping, restaurants, bars including quite a few English-style pubs, and theaters. Toronto hosts many world-class shows, such as Mama Mia. It's easily reached from just about anywhere in the city, on foot or mass transit. When the weather's nice, you can eat outdoors.

    Toronto's entertainment district has become a bit of an eye sore of late. Clubs or lounges to check out: Fez Batik (Richmond and Peter St) for a cool loungy vibe or Tonic (Across the street from the Fez) to dance all night. If you're into the rock, check out the legendary Bovine Sex Club (just east of Bathurst on Queen Street), The Velvet Underground (Just east of the Bovine on Queen Street) or The Phoenix (Saturday Night). Another really cool club is The Mod Club (a little off the beaten path, West of Bathurst on College Street).

    We have routinely visited Yong-Dundas Square since 2002 and have been witness to its revitalization.

    Yonge-Dundas Square is no doubt Toronto's answer to New York's Time Square. Yonge-Dundas Square, also simply known as Dundas Square, is a commercial market square in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at the intersection of Yonge Street and Dundas Street. One of the busiest intersections in Toronto, the square was constructed during a revitalization project. Some major shopping centres and food courts are located around the square.

    Roy Thomson Hall

    by karen75 Written Jul 6, 2005

    The funny shaped building on King Street West of University is Roy Thomson Hall. RTH is a concert hall - mainly home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Also home to the gala screenings for the Toronto International Film Festival.

    Visit www.roythomsonhall.com to find out what shows are coming to RTH.

    Street performer

    This is a great area of Toronto, and it's relatively safe if you are walking around by yourself. All kinds of shops to go into, and sometimes you'll see street performers.

    deserted downtown

    by Nanumi Updated May 12, 2003

    Last Sunday downtown reminded me of a ghost town - empty streets everywhere, some cars with rolled up windows...aftershocks of SARS....
