girls night out toronto

The top 10 places to have a girls' night out in Toronto

Girls' night out in Toronto is the time when you and the crew can catch up and wind down. Any time spent with friends is a guaranteed good time, but the top spots for your gathering should have ample seating for large parties, some shareable eats, and definitely enough drinks on hand. 

Here are my picks for the top places for a girls' night out in Toronto.

Coffee Oysters Champagne

This pristine French restaurant in the Entertainment District is the perfect place for a classy night out. Rosé bottle-lined walls and a rotating selection of oysters are the perfect mis en scene for a well-deserved catch up session.

Come See Me

Live DJ's every night and delicious bar food: what better combination for a needed unwinding with the gang at this Little Italy party spot. Prepare for a night of dancing, fried chicken with waffles, and many, many shots for a wild (read: messy) night.

Pursuit OCR

Open until 11 p.m. on weekends, the city's biggest ball pit could be the best way to release some endorphins with your friends. Who needs cocktails when you can race each other on the tricycle race track? Head to this indoor obstacle course in Etobicoke for the night of your life.

Echo Karaoke

Let's be real, there's nothing more perfect than some 'yoki for a group of four or more. This Koreatown favourite has private rooms, cheap drink specials and a massive catalogue of songs to choose from including a selection of 6ix God tunes for the Drake lovers. 

Vatican Gift Shop

Duck behind this low-key gift shop in Leslieville and find yourself in this dark and sultry bar. You and the gang can squeeze into big Godfather-type couches, eat pizza, sip on strong cocktails, and possibly catch some live music. 

Lula Lounge

What better way to shake off some stress than a night of dancing. This salsa staple in Little Portugal has musical acts every day of the week, but their Havana Club Fridays and Salsa Saturdays are where it's at, complete with pre-party dance lessons and ladies-free-discount before 10 p.m. 

Her Majesty’s Pleasure

It might be clichéd but sometimes there's really nothing more relaxing than an evening of primping with your BFFs. It doesn't get more fancy than this King West spa, which offers party packages including manis, pedis, and a glasses of bubbly for groups of five or more. 

Rooftop at Broadview Hotel

Bring the whole crew if you want: the city vistas of Broadview and Queen from this 7th floor rooftop can be viewed from all around this sprawling restaurant. With tons of seating and a sleek ambiance, it'll be easy to pass hours here with the besties. 

EFS

This King West staple is a necessary destination for any girl and her band of Instagram baddies. Grab a coveted booth and be served by bottle girls clad in body con dresses for the quintessential club experience. Just a head's up: EFS stands for Everything is For Sale. Take that as you will.

Rock 'n' Horse

Still one of the most popular places for bachelorettes and girl gatherings, this Entertainment District saloon comes equipped with all the gaudy trappings of a Hollywood-approved night on the town, from the cowboy-themed menus to the quintessential mechanical bull.
