The Best New Bars and Clubs in Toronto

Toronto is famous (or infamous, depending on your take) for having one of the most thriving bar and night club scenes in all of North America. Ranging in size and scope from the tiny, intimate watering hole to the gigantic, hopping superclub, Toronto does have a lot ot offer to those looking to get out for a drink to drown their sorrows solo, or get their party on with thousands of like-minded clubbers.

Back in In January we ran our annual Best of Toronto readership survey and the nomination and vote results confirm the notion that we have a decent variety of awesome, new options for nightime entertainment all over the city.
