Everybody Dance Now . . . at Toronto's Best Nightclubs



Some people like to march to the beat of their own drum. Others like to enjoy the bass of a world class DJ rather than their own private vinyl collection. On those days when you want to go big, Toronto has the dance clubs that are sure to please. It was the end of an era with the closing of The Guvernment nightclub, which at one time was named one of the top nightclubs in the world by DJMag. We may be hustling in another era of smaller and friendlier nightclubs, but there always is a place where people go to get their dance on.

Way into the wee hours of the morning, we have your cocktail flowing, hip shaking locations all over the city. It is just a cab ride away to enter a different world. It will be hard to imagine that this is the same city where you took your morning Starbucks run. These dance clubs prove there are a lot of different ways to stay awake. Whether you stumble home at 2am or 7am, you only have to wait a short while before you get to relive your experiences over brunch.

Some of our locations expect you to dress your best, while others are more concerned that you drink your best. Ask your Magic 8 ball what the outlook will be for your evening, pick a number and call your most fun friend. It is time to party.
