Various rooms about the place and lots of fun taking place when we visited here on Halloween. Staff and patrons were very friendly and it was great seeing so many people dressed up. The bar staff were friendly and the drinks reasonably priced. Only downside is the toilets - there down a very steep set of stairs. I suspect many... More

One of my favourite bars. I love going late afternoon to early evening (5-8). Fridays around 6pm is free pizza.

Woody's has everything you'd want in a gay bar: friendly and efficient bar staff, lively atmosphere and a good show. Plenty of handsome men make this a place gay travelers enjoy. We visited Woody's after first being lured by a drag show at a nearby bar, which turned out to be an awful show in a dingy bar. But Woody's... More

We visited this on what was a very sad day. The day after the Orlando massacre we went to Woodys, and it was really great to see people still turning out, even despite the uncertainty. They did however do a one minute silence and that was really moving. Anyway, the bar itself is actually a lot bigger than I thought... More

Every time I come to Toronto I am sure to visit Woody's! A fully stocked bar with very knowledgeable bar tenders, who by the way aren't bad on the eyes ;). There is always something exciting happening at Woody's. Its the most fun that can be had out of bed!

Visiting from out of town. Our friends took us here on our last night - four straight women in a gay bar with a drag show! Freaking awesome! Great entertainment value and lots of very cute men hanging out. Thought we would stay for an hour but ended up staying about three hours. Georgie was our favourite!

It is all very good looking men working... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
