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.
