Rated 4.5 out of 5

4 Star Rating I've visited Roy Thomson Hall for a number of different occasions. It's a wonderful space and a cultural gem in Toronto. It's home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra who play here on varying nights, mostly Wednesday to Saturday nights and some matinee performances throughout September to June. More recently, I've begun to admire their outdoor event space for private functions. It's simply beautiful.

5 Star Rating The home stage of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Worth the 5 stars for that. Although the venue can and hosts a multitude of over events, they are best known for the TSO. The locale has an interesting architecture, arguably shaped like a massive, concrete and glass flan. It is artistic and yet a reminder of the simplistic Brutalist Movement , an architectural style which was all the rage during the 50-70's and today almost universally panned for its basic, usually geometric yet with almost no-frills cues. However the park around it and the quality of its acts keeps this building alive and a hub for any art lovers in Toronto.

4 Star Rating Walked down here for their live concert series. The vibe is easy, band is cool but get her EARLY for seating. One glass of wine, a premium beer and a big bag of popcorn cost about $25 with a generous tip.

5 Star Rating Catch the tso here. Frequent specially shows like comedy with second city or a complete set of movie soundtracks. Best acoustics you'll ever hear. Smells like bengay though.

5 Star Rating By far the venue with the best sound on the city. The architecture is interesting and the surrounding scenery is nice. It can be a bit costly but worth it.
