Throughout the past two decades, the Phoenix has sold tickets for tonnes of great artists including Green Day, Johnny Marr and Bob Dylan. Located midway between Bloor and Dundas on Sherbourne Street, the Phoenix Concert Theatre is large enough to accommodate bands in demand but still able to pull off smaller shows as well.
Don’t mind the cramped hallways and dim lighting as you walk in the front entrance because the main room does open up nicely. One of the largest dance floors in the city sits in front of the concert stage surrounded by five bars in every direction. A second level balcony also sits overhead if you need to give your feet a rest or pre-emptively cure your ‘bangover’.
Tip: Buy your merchandise before the show. Waiting around tiny hallways with tired, drunk and eager fans isn't a fun post-show activity.
