Pub in the front. Party in the back.

The hallowed doors to Clinton's Tavern opened on a fateful snow-free November of 1937 as freshly minted George VI nickles, dimes and quarters were filling the pockets of the bar keeps. The main floor was your typical watering hole, but the upstairs help an exclusive "members only" club; a known favorite of Old Blue Eyes - yes, Frank Sinatra.

Always one step of the herd, Clintons opened up the bar to women in 1955. Imagine that, men would finally enjoy their brew with a classy dame by their side.

By 1985, the back was opened for live shows. A young Jeff Healy lived out a rock star hopeful's dream as Bob Dyan caught his show and took a shine to him. Their meeting at Clinton's sparked a long-term friendship with ultimately helped propel Healy's career to the next level.

The concert space has since become well known as a launch pad for a wide range of Canadian acts including Drake, Barenaked Ladies, Die Mannequin, Three Days Grace, Cowboy Junkies, The Cliks, Crystal castles and many more abroad and alike. And aside from the constant live music shows, weekly dj nights and special events, there's always something happening at 693 Bloor St. W.

Clintons has been delivering the best live music, trivia and poetry nights, weekly dance parties, drinks and home cookin' to Toronto for 74 years and isn't slowing down! We are a hidden gem tucked in the heart of the Christie Pitts so join us for beers with buds on our patio or front pub or dance the night away on one of the craziest dance floors in the city!
