If you’re more of a night person, you won’t be disappointed with Toronto’s nightlife. Beyond the vibrant store signs, business signs, commercial signs, banners signs, graphic designs, and street art, there are hidden pubs and activities you might be interested in.
Whether you want to dine, shop, and relax while in Toronto, here’s where you can experience the best.
Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!
Nightlife in Toronto is nothing without food. The city is home to various cafes, pub, bars, restaurants, and speakeasies that are open throughout the night.
· Cafes. Toronto has unique and cutesy coffee shops that fuel your adrenaline. Their mixology in coffee provides you with interesting drink choices.
Fahrenheit Coffee. Want your coffee with some extra kick? They add red wine to it.
7 West Café. It’s open 24 hours and serves you great breakfast meals to cure your hangover. Also, it has a great patio rooftop to view the sunrise and sunset.
Forget Me Not Café. This café features a more rustic theme and incorporates wooden elements to make it more homey.
· Speakeasies. Who doesn’t want a good mystery in a bar? Speakeasies are pubs riddled with secret codes and hidden passageways.
D.W. Alexander. The lounge has the atmosphere of a 19th-century gentlemen’s bar with a little twist of country elements.
The Cloak. This secret spot is often filled with guests drinking spirits by candlelight. Its liquors are often unheard of but the mixology is excellent.
CC Lounge and Whisky Bar. It used to be a bookstore in the historic building of Beardmore. Now, it’s a 1920s-themed speakeasy with timeless leather couches and unique chandeliers.
Dancing is optional, but if you want to groove to some music at nighttime, then head to these amazing places.
Coda. Unlike many dance clubs, Coda’s second-floor location is not obvious from the outside. It hosts dance parties, features live acts, and plays EDM music that’ll definitely make you want to get up and shake it.
Toika Lounge. It’s a small club located at the City’s Entertainment District. You can even bump into some local and international artists there. Make sure to dress up, though, as the club has a strict dress code: no sportswear allowed.
Toronto offers nighttime shopping for nocturnal creatures craving some retail therapy. There are shops still open at midnight in case you want to hog a deal or two.

If you still have the strength to throw a ball and hit the pins, there are 24-hour bowling centers you can try. This activity is perfect for a late-night family reunion or stag and hen parties.
Bowlerama. Thanks to its three locations, you can bowl all you want. The branches can be found at Newtonbrook, Rexdale, and Bowlerama West.
Club 300 Bowl. Head to Old Kennedy Road and let some pins fall with your throw. Enjoy snacks throughout the night, too.
As you can see, Toronto is not without its nighttime charms. The city boasts of multiple entertainment choices once the sun sets and the stars shine.
