If you can go past the worn out seats and the general darkness (think old unadorned church or boxing hall) the place is full of history and with excellent acoustics. So the gray stains of smoke and dust can be esile forgotten thinking of the...More

Sugar Sammy, Gina Brillon and Alonzo Bodden had me in tears laughing. A beautiful venue with a good matured audience. Nothing was left untouched. Relationships, LGBT, Race, religion, nationalities and of course poking at #45. Really a great night!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

We’re unsure if Massey Hall has a coat check/bag check. Best to contact the box office at Massey Hall and enquire.
