CHURCH on Church

Church on Church isn’t bound by anything. It has pew-like seating and a list of seasonal cocktails, DJs packing the dance floor, playing some of the best tracks. There are themed nights – like Bollywood or Latin – where dress is encouraged to match the music. One of their most anticipated events, Communion, is held once a month. Church holds itself as a place for people to come together and worship Toronto and all that it has to offer.

Black Eagle

If you like denim or leather, Black Eagle is your spot with its dark and industrial setting. This place keeps people coming back with drink specials Monday through Wednesday. If you’re into dressing to impress, head down on one of the themed nights.

Crews and Tangos

Crews and Tangos, the number one drag bar in the city, has two dance floors and a space for all Torontonians to enjoy. While it hosts some of the hottest events in Toronto like a six-week long drag race and charity fundraisers, Crews and Tangos is known for hosting karaoke. It is held every night of the week.


Zipperz is arguably Toronto’s trendiest gay bar and nightly hot spot with a beer garden and piano bar. It hosts a Wednesday drag night among other events throughout the month. It is seen as a staple of Toronto’s gay community. You can’t miss this one.

Fly 2.0

Fly 2.0, a massive space of three floors and four rooms, brings in DJs from all over the world to help to create an exciting dance club experience. There are live performances, go-go dancers, and an array of special events like Bearacuda. It has even been featured on TV shows like Queer as Folk. This is a must-see if you’re in the city.
