Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Toronto

2 Cats
Perfect for those content to order drinks cheek-by-jowl (albeit both chiselled and youthful), this local hangout would be casual if it weren't so darn frenetic.
Brant House
Pitching itself as a house party, clubbers come to live it up in the Brant House living room.
Century Room
Capturing the best features of the century-old building it's housed in, this lounge/nightclub has played host to celebs like Jude Law and Jamie Foxx.
Dakota Tavern
It's only been open since 2006, but this live music bar is already a solid gold institution.
El Convento Rico
This is one of the hottest clubs in town, literally.
Footwork
Eschewing pretty décor, Footwork gets down and dirty with the business of electronic dance.
LeVack Block
On a street heavily peppered with bars, this is the hot chili - and it's all down to the dance floor.
Nyood Bar
Found above the restaurant of the same name, Nyood is a boisterous bar that'll have even the shiest wallflowers up and on the floor.
Second City
It's spoof and satire from the improvisational comedy enterprise that started in 1959 in Chicago.
The Drake Underground
Found beneath the ever-popular Drake Hotel, this subterranean live music den has the city's brightest young things rocking out til the small hours.
The Fifth Social Club & Cabin Five
Pleasant country manor house meets raucous nubile crowd in the converted warehouse environs of the Fifth.
The Horseshoe Tavern
This live music venue has been going strong since 1947.
