The Ultimate Toronto Bar Crawl For Every Major Neighbourhood

Hit all the best spots in the city!
The Ultimate Toronto Bar Crawl For Every Major Neighbourhood

The number of bars in Toronto is almost unbelievable. Walk down any street in the city and you'll find at least a few different bars with a cool atmosphere and great drink prices. What I'm trying to say is that bars in Toronto are not hard to come by.

While hitting up one bar on a Saturday night with your friends is always a good idea, making a night of it and hopping from bar to bar is even better. This way you can experience all the best parts of different areas of the city and you also don't have to argue over which bar you'll be stuck at this night. 

Going on a bar crawl in Toronto gives you tons of freedom and also it's so much more fun! Below you'll find four major neighbourhoods in the city that have an amazing selection of bars. Choose one of the neighbourhoods below to go on a bar crawl adventure! We also included a late night eats spot in each area so that you know where to get the best munchies at the end of your big night out, you're welcome!
