One of TO's best live music venues, with performance most nights of the week this place is always a good time. Check out the A-Team on Saturday nights!
The menu and bar are a little expensive but the service is generally quick and friendly. However, the Orbit room has one purpose in my opinion. Any night of the week you can count on this place to have some of the very best live music in the city. Mostly it displays the realm of funk and R&B but the musicians are always impressive. This is where musicians go to see musicians play. It has a great little patio out back and an interesting decor on the inside. A perfect place to have a drink with a date.
On any given weekday, this obscure upstairs entertainment venue is slammed with locals and music junkies looking for a live fix. The Young and Hip shake it near the band; local fans imbibe and take in the scene. Live music ranges from jazz, funk and R&B. Tuesday Reggae nights will always get you feeling irie, mon. Whatever your mood, this place is of local legend, and a hot spot to hit.
