If you like jazz, stop by this place. There's two sessions a night. The food and beer are good and reasonably priced, but not as good as the music
Ok, it' old, the drink and food menus are nothing special and it generally attracts an older crowd, the cover charges can go as high as $20 per person or more depending on the who is playing, but overall its a great place to catch a live jazz band. I would give the food and drink menus 3 stars (you... More
The Rex is just the best live music venue in Toronto. It's a proper old-fashioned pub, and it has great jazz. The beer is excellent, the food very decent and good value (pub food, nothing posh, but that's what you want on this kind of a night out). Last time we were there we saw the Julia Cleveland Quintet, a... More
Great live music and good food at reasonable prices. Worth the visit if you like Jazz. Some of the worlds best musicians jam there on weekends, along with many local favourites including Shannon Butcher and Ross McIntyre ... they are awesome.
Whilst staying at The Rex, toast and coffee are included each morning at no extra charge. Breakfast and lunch are pleasantly prepared and served during the day. The food is a step above bar food, good soup and sandwiches at a reasonable price. I did not try getting anything in the evenings as the bar was quite full during entertainment... More
We found The Rex, accidentally, while exploring Queen West on our first trip to Toronto. What a find! Great beer, great food, and a nice variety of music performed live by different, talented musicians. The atmosphere is very friendly, and it is the kind of local bar that allows a woman to drop in, have a drink or snack, and... More
Excellent music is almost a sure thing at The Rex. Usually a great place for listening to Jazz, six of us attended The Rex on Friday August 17 to listen to Sara Dell, a very versatile singer, who is more pop than jazz and really talented. We had a fun evening and enjoyed the beer and wine. The food was... More
My husband and I are regular visitors to the Rex. We always enjoy the music, whether it is a Big Band playing, a vocalist, or a jam session. The atmosphere is always welcoming and the food is good. Check out their website to see who is playing and you can't go wrong. I encourage tourists who enjoy live music to... More
watch the Jazz and Blues greats in an authentic Jazz and blues bar. The Best of Toronto. Great food as well. The staff are great, and you cant beat the atmosphere. Even if you are not a Jazz or Blues lover, this is an experience you need to try out. Dont miss Kevin Quain playing solo pianos and singing the... More
I went there yesterday for the first time and just loved it. I was very impressed with such great music and will definately come back.
