Are you seeking an upscale establishment, a sweaty basement, the latest country-western saloon, or just a hole in the wall downtown? Do you realize how many bars are currently operating in Toronto? How many are serving craft brews like it’s their civic duty? It’s an unprecedented number. That's why we make sure only Toronto bars that are worthy of wetting the ol’ whistle make the cut. You think we’d just throw together a random list for shits and giggles and call it a day? Never.
Our editors approve every place that creates a profile on BLC and highlights the top most popular bars voted by you below so you don’t have to do all the digging or infinite scrolling. We understand the mind-numbing pain that comes with sifting through a listing page that has zero thought behind it. We're just trying to make that process a little easier.
While we're on the topic, it may be scientifically proven that Toronto bars and live music go hand-in-hand. You know the phenomenon we’re talking about – going out for a couple beers and ending the evening belting out whatever tunes you're capable of slurring.
While nightclubs and concert venues in Toronto offer a different type of energy that's unmatched, sometimes all you need is a dimly lit bar and an unknown artist singing directly to you to cap off the evening. That’s why we also keep you in the loop for events taking place in Toronto.
