Hg2 : The Hedonist

The Drake Underground

Can The Drake do no wrong? Already one of the hippest hotels, with one of the trendiest bars in the city (Sky Bar, see Drink), it also boasts a multi-purpose underground venue that has emerged as one of the most popular cultural hotspots in town. Engaging in poetry reading, comedy, film and performance art, it also hosts rock bands and jazz nights, so if you like your music venues pristine clean, this one’s for you.

It has a 50s feel to it that appeals to an older crowd, with a bar at the back serving drinks and snacks. Elvis Mondays (9pm Mondays) is a free indie showcase that’s been running in Toronto for 26 years and now happily resides here. The Underground has also hosted legends such as Beck and Carole Pope, as well as MIA and De La Soul.
