    Dance cave: come in after midnight; if you're a student, bring your ID card to get in for free! Otherwise cover is $7

    Great live venue and dripping with authenticity.

    Such a fun small-ish venue.

    This place is like a cave. But caveman like rock beat. It stinks like old beer and sweat. But the sound system is good. Go here.

    Fun place to dance if you want a fun relaxed environment without the aggressiveness of a real club. Also loved the retro music and decor!
  • Kristina G.
    This is one of my favourite venues in Toronto (also yours if you like climbing 20 flights of stairs to take a piss).

    Is it always slower than snails to get in the door if there is a line up? Oh well Amanda Palmer was worth it.

    Great place to see bands play. Bad place to use a washroom.

    If you're stumbling in or out, get the burritos made inside. Also take time to admire the amazing artscape painted on the building.

    Try and grab a spot at the first or second rail. You see everything over the pit.

    Dance cave would be a great dive bar if not for the staff. There are many much better places to enjoy a drink, no need to waste your time here.

    Used to be one of my favourite venues, until security turned me away for having a point and shoot(!) camera with me. Looks like Sound Academy's camera nazis work here too.

    Wear layers; the heat in the bar is tropical, you will be wishing for a tank top and shorts in January

    Lee's is great for shows, many of the best international bands play this venue. The upstairs (Dance Cave) is to be avoided if you are over 19 years old.

    Dance Cave: cheap drinks, good music (think FTP), huge dancefloor, and even a foosball table! If you're a student, flash your valid student ID and get in for free! Great place to dance your socks off. Read more

    No matter how girly you are, don't try to pull off a dress. Jeans and dirty rock tees are the uniform here.
