    Easily the best Jazz club in Toronto. Only warning is the volume (try not to sit too close to the front), and the ketchup (it tastes a bit off). Otherwise, their $2.75 plate of fries is killer.

    Never order the wings! Worst in the city. Like pigeon wings. Tiny, soft and each appears to have been hit be a car. Every wing had the bones broken so hard to eat. Like eating smashed Lego pieces.

    If you like jazz/blues, and if you are from anywhere, you should make a point to go to the Rex. The acts there are consistently first rate, the beer is cold, and the food is well-prepared.
