The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
How to get there

Roy Thomson Hall does not have the best concert-hall acoustics in Toronto -- Koerner Hall and Weston Hall are both significantly better -- but the sound is pretty good in the rear orchestra. We heard the Mozart arrangement of Handel's Messiah with four excellent soloists and the Mendelssohn Choir. We were impressed.

In June of 2018, I came with several girlfriends to attend an event with Amal Clooney, being interviewed by Nick Clooney, a renowned journalist/activist and her father-in-law, with Sophie Gregoire Trudeau. First, what brilliant examples of female leadership. Both women and especially Ms. Clooney, are very accomplished professionals prior to their more recent claims to fame!

Back to the venue - bright, airy, and most importantly, the acoustics are brilliant. No matter where you sit, you will hear well whether a concert or talk. Outside of the auditorium is an open space for a reception or catered dining.

Not a surprise that year after year for the Toronto International Film Festival, some of the best new films are introduced here.

We saw Romantic Brahms this Sunday Matinee. It was transcendent mesmerizing and beautiful music. The orchestra was superb and the conductor was excellent.
It was such a treat! We had great seats at the front centre left and it was just the right length of time with a intermission. I would highly recommend a Sunday afternoon spent listening to superb music live.
The tickets were not expensive and there were all ages and it was easy to get to with transit.

This was my first time to Roy Thomson Hall, and it was a pleasure. The staff were helpful, and the concessions were varied and generous for the price. I found the seating very comfortable. I doubt there's a bad seat in the house. The orchestra was fantastic.

I saw the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at Roy Thompson Hall. It was an excellent time! It's a fairly intimate venue right in the middle of the city.

The acoustics were perfect for the symphony of classical music. It's a modern facility with decent bar service - can't take your drinks into the show though - probably because of the cloth seats. The seats are super comfortable, with more leg room than I'm used to at venues like this. We sat behind and to the side of the orchestra and still had a really nice view and the sound was great.

The architecture is something special.

The staff were quite helpful and nice, from the ticket person to the ushers.

We visited here to attend my son’s graduation from OCAD. It’s clearly a top class venue for all sorts of events. It’s location, near the CN Tower, Rogers Stadium etc and right next to St Andrews subway is great. There are plenty of restaurants nearby too. It’s a very interesting architectural design too.

The seats were comfortable. The staff are helpful and approachable. The washroom are huge and clean. Lighting and decor was good. I cant complain about the building. Sounds might need a bit of improvement. I enjoyed the show. Lots of restaurants around and right in the middle of downtown so public transportation is available.

We parked not underground but across (RBC building) whole night for $10.00. Parking was tight as in be very cautious driving here but our car was safe and just need more visible directions to get out. Tried to be healthy by taking the stairs but got into offices instead of the lobby. Also tickets for parking is confusing but read directions and you will be fine.
