We attended Massey Hall for a Christmas concert in December. Our right-side gallery front-row seats (top level) allowed a great view of the whole place. The acoustics are excellent. The seats are relatively small and there are number of pillars that obstruct views but are priced accordingly. The...More

I went to see Robert Plant at Massey Hall. The building itself feels very cool, from the neon sign outside to the two balcony levels... it felt very historic, and I think it is. I thought that the acoustics were great, and it felt very...More

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

Downtown
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
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

I am pretty sure no outside food or drinks is allowed. They have their own bar but I believe like most places they still don't like anything from outside brought in.

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