Toronto is the fifth largest city in North America, so if you’re going out clubbing you’ve got your fair share of line-waiting, bouncer-maneuvering and dress-code matching to do. You shouldn’t spend time and effort getting ready for a nightclub that’s going to disappoint. If you must stand in a lineup just so you can sip vodka-crans until last call then that establishment better provide value. And you know exactly what that entails. A sound system that gets deep into your pores, a solid DJ that knows how to command a room, a crowd that enhances the experience, and more than one toilet.
The problem isn’t so much that Toronto lacks these types of nightclubs but that there are countless to choose from. And quite frankly, nobody has time to scroll through an impossible directory and guesstimate where to attend. That’s why our editors approve every place that’s listed on BLC and in turn highlights the top most popular nightclubs voted by you below. We prefer to cut to the chase.
The vast majority of Toronto nightclubs are located in the downtown entertainment district centered on King Street West between Spadina and University Avenue. This is the area to find events hosting local and international DJs or well-known artists making surprise appearances. This is also the neighbourhood to find clothing stores in Toronto selling that freakum dress. But since it’s hard enough to decide on a notable nightclub, we also provide a detailed listing of events taking place in the city.

Not quite a nightclub and not just a bar or lounge, The Everleigh is a fresh take on Canadian nightlife interpreted through nostalgia, art, music, cocktails and culture and is the seventh venture from (C)apture Group, helmed by Toronto hospitality trendsetters Zark Fatah and Ralf Madi.
The Everleigh caters to evolved King West faithfuls by fusing old and new world concepts across two rooms to create a mature yet fun social experience while still offering next-generation club-goers a solid place to dance. The Everleigh will also act as a showcase for local and international artists and photographers. The space includes original artwork by American street artist Alec Monopoly.
With The Everleigh, (C)apture Group celebrates and re-interprets Canadiana, marrying iconic vintage ideas with street-edge design while adding a sexy opulent flair reminiscent of Chicago’s Everleigh Brothel in the early 1900s. Century-old antiques and bespoke art installations pepper the space. Creative integration of the discontinued copper penny infuses shine and texture throughout the venue; while Muskoka-themed washrooms offer a new take on an old world canoe. A flock of geese across the ceiling is a key focal point in the lounge representing the migration and evolution of King West in Toronto.
Creative mixology is the foundation for The Everleigh's dynamic bar experience. The drink menu appeals to even the most discerning tastes and includes a colourful and delicious cocktail selection curated by award-winning mixologist Nishan Nepulaonga (Blowfish Restaurant).
The dance floor, VIP tables and bottle service packages cater to those looking for a big night out. Music will feature both local DJs as well as international guests. Catering and customized services are available for private events.
