Toronto has a lot to offer, especially when it comes to nightlife. There is a good chance that a lot of the people you meet at Toronto clubs, are not actually from the city!
Many people come to Toronto from all over the GTA for an awesome night out. But commuting comes with consequences. Preing becomes a whole lot harder when you have to take longer forms of transit, or rely on Go train times.
We have compiled a list of places 8 to pregrame around the GTA, that will hopefully help you out for your next night out in Toronto. Enjoy!
Jackson's Landing // Burlington
Jackson's landing rooftop patio is the perfect place to get tipsy on Sangria before heading to Toronto. It's a 3 minute Uber/cab ride from the appleby go station, so it won't cost you much at all!
The Pump// Mississauga
Pump has an extensive drink menu, and wonderful appetizers. Plus it's only a 7 min walk to Porte Credit Go station, no need for a cab tonight!
Dirty Martini // Oakville
This is a great spot if you're more into a "club vibe". You won't have to worry about feeling awkward in your your dress and heals at this pregame destination. Their drinks are good, the crowd is always lively, and it's an 8 minute Uber/taxi ride to the go station!
The Owl and Firkin // Markham
This place has some super comfortable patio furniture, and very tasty mix drinks. This is a prime location for getting a little tipsy before the jays game with a large group of friends!

This is an awesome local spot, with friendly staff and a spacious patio. Food is also super cheap, so feel free to treat yo'self to something on their menu!
The Bear and Firkin // Pickering
Cheap drinks, a beautiful patio, and the added bonus of incredible mac and cheese?! No better way to start your weekend than pregraming at the Bear and Firkin!
Mezcal // Hamilton
Mezcal is a 1 minute walk from the Hamilton Center, making it an ideal place to pre-game before heading to the city. As an added bonus between 3-5PM Mezcal brings down their prices on tacos and margaritas for their "DTF hours (down to fiesta)".
