      Hemingway's is fully open on Christmas day from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. with a turkey dinner special, which includes all the fixings and dessert for $18. Their regular menu is running all day as well, but be warned; it's a festive and busy day in this Yorkville spot, so call ahead.
    • December 25
      DJ Danger cat spins everything from punk and rock and roll to soul and motown at this warm and cozy Dundas West hole in the wall. There's no cover and no pressure. 
      The Right Light
    • December 25
      The End has you covered if you have nowhere to go for the holidays. They're open regular hours on Christmas day and if you bring a wrapped gift with a limit of $10, you can join in on the Secret Santa fun.
    • December 25
      The Trunk is open from noon until 2 a.m. and takes on the role of the Island of Misfit Toys where you can stop by for a cheery drink with strangers.
    • December 25
      This is the third year running for this Jewish-style Christmas party. They're ordering Chinese food and watching movies! The bar opens at 8 p.m. and they'll be screening Point Break at 8:30.
    • December 25
      Yup, there's a full out dance party at the nightclub attached to the Thompson Hotel. This is a good spot if you need a family breather.
    • December 25-31
      Like a real-life version of The Gods Must Be Crazy, this warm and uplifting doc provides a fresh take on our “civilized” lifestyle. Follow four Ju/’Hoansi on their journey from their home in the Kalahari Desert to urban Europe. The film screens until Dec. 31.
