What's open on New Year's Day in Toronto


What's open on New Year's day in Toronto is probably only a relevant question to those who don't drink themselves beyond basic functionality the night before -- or at least that's true of the hours before noon. Nevertheless, here's a quick look at what's open and closed over the next two days or so.

December 31

  • LCBO and Beer Store locations are open until 6pm (but they'll be a zoo all afternoon!)
  • Shopping malls and major grocery stores are generally open until 6pm as well.
  • Banks are open until 3pm.
  • TTC Service will be as usual until 12:01am, at which point it will become free.

New Year's Day

Almost everything is closed, except for...

  • TTC service is on a Sunday schedule
  • The Eaton Centre (12-5pm) and Pacific Mall (regular hours)
  • Food Depot and Rabba grocery stores
  • Major attractions like the ROM, AGO, CN Tower and the Zoo
  • Public skating rinks
  • Rob Ford will host the annual New Years Levée at City Hall from 2 to 4pm

Greasy food options for the morning after

Probably the most useful information on this list, here's where to find some food that'll help sop up the hangover.
