Massey Hall is a beautiful, historic 2752 seat concert hall in the heart of Toronto that is also a designated heritage building under the Ontario Heritage Act. The Hall was home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as well as the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir prior to the opening of the Roy Thomson Hall in 1982.
Massey Hall was built in 1894 for a cost of just over $150,000. At that time it seated up to 3500 guests, however renovations during the 1940s reduced the capacity to the current 2752. The hall has had many famous dignitaries pass through its doors over the years and it has hosted performances by many famous artists.
Massey Hall continues to be a popular venue for many concerts and shows. For additional information about Massey Hall and upcoming concerts and events see the official website link below.

Fantastic music venue. Some seats have pillars in front of them. However the bar leaves a lot to be desired, feeling like a cheap tavern rather than the best music venue in the city selling low-end beer and spirits. I feel like they could easily improve this. But the events are amazing.

Awesome venue! New renos look great staff and security are nice too. The bathroom is huge so that’s nice and the drinks are reasonably priced for a venue like this! Very spacious and easy to get around. Comfy seating! Had a great time at The Beaches concert last night!

A lovely historic theatre with comfortable seats. We were on the balcony three rows back and gad a great view. The quality of the sound from the two bands was excellent. I've joined the mailing list ready to go again.
