Overview

The Latin beat beckons one and all -- straight, gay, and otherwise -- to this lively club. If you don't know how to samba, you can pick up the basics at the Friday- and Sunday-night dance lessons, but if you don't learn, no one on the jam-packed dance floor will notice. There's a substantial hetero contingent that comes out just to watch the fabulous drag queens -- and don't be surprised if you encounter a bachelorette party in progress.

We reserved a table with bottle service and would recommend this option as it gives you and your guests a reserved spot to sit while you're not dancing. The atmosphere is friendly. Fortunately, we arrived early enough to take part in the dancing lessons; while...More

Amazing night with my girls, the drag show at midnight was AWESOME. 15$ Is on the pricier side for cover but its DEFINITELY worth it.

Came here last week although I wasn't sure what to expect given that most of the reviews were pretty dated. The atmosphere was pretty relaxed with very few pretentious Torontonians. Most people there just seemed to want to have a good time. There were two...More

To sum it up cheap vibe and very very rude staff. When we arrive around midnight there was barely anyone there and no one dancing, just a very cheesy dance competition on the dancefloor. The bartender was extremely rude and actually made fun of my...More

Little Italy
Toronto's Little Italy is a city hotspot for cafe
culture and nightlife. There's something for everyone
in Little Italy, apparent from the cross-section of
clubbers in glitzy dresses, and elderly couples
arm-in-arm heading to their favorite wine or pasta
spot. Cafes spill onto the wide sidewalks, pool
lounges and bars are always teeming with noise and
activity, and both outdoor and indoor marketplaces are
