I have been to the Rebel a few times for concerts. The venue itself is ok. It was as better when I bought mezzanine tickets as there were less people around. My main complaint is the parking lot. There is enough parking but getting out...More

We went to a concert here during Canadian Music week. The light show that the band put on was spectacular but unfortunately the venue kept the house lights up at the back of the room (way too bright!.) We ordered two 355ml cans of MGD...More

Club crowd: The demographic was 70% male, mostly south Asian men. The club let in WAY too many people, with no vetting process it seemed. I had my butt grabbed by five different people who thought it appropriate to surprise grab and run? The men...More

First and last visit, even though sound was terrific. Be prepared to stand for entire show unless you are willing to spend $200+ for bottle service. Sight lines terrible. Probably a decent spot for dancing. We'd have to go back to find out. Not going...More

Pleasantly surprised with the venue. Parking is a big problem but other than that is good. Heat was on in the outer corridor to combat the Canadian chill. Entry was problem free. Corona $8.50, not bad, from scantily clad bar staff. No real seating but...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

How much is cover for a guy before and after 11:30?

If you put yourself on the guest list it will be $15.00. If you dont it will be $25.00. We always register on the guestlist. As it is a shorter line with no real wait time to get in. Much better experience we find.

Yes they do, that is what I show for ID. I always bring it, but rarely do they ask for it.
