Energetic gay bar but building needs a renovation.

Piano bar in the front and dancing in the back. The dance floor is dead smack in the middle of everything and is the main focus. I think the dance floor should be off to the side... read more

Zippers has now been closed and torn down for condos. However this was an awesome place that my friends and I very much enjoyed.

I've always enjoyed the vibe at this place on a Sunday evening. I usually only go on a Sunday eve. The DJ belts out the best of the 80s music in town, the dancefloor is quite large but the later you get there the more people you'll be rubbing up against while dancing :)

on a sunday night they played 80's dance music and the crowd really loved it. Of course, we all are of a certain age to enjoy that lol. The beer was warm and we were told by the bartender that it was cold which of course raised our ire but overall, its a good choice. Other nights are a bit... More

Piano bar in the front and dancing in the back. The dance floor is dead smack in the middle of everything and is the main focus. I think the dance floor should be off to the side or corner to allow people to mingle when not dancing. The piano bar section has a huge service bar, again, in the middle... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
