Cinema
“Easy to get to and, in a lively area with shops and restaurants and it's a big theatre hosting lots of films.”

Doctor's Office
“Known as "Yonge and Eligible" due to the young professional crowd that frequent this area, Yonge and Eglinton is less pretentious than Bloor-Yorkville and offers cool, unique finds mixed with mainstream GAP/Starbucks appeal. A mall and indoor shopping concourse are on the corner, or walk north on Yonge and peruse a variety of interesting clothing, home decor, and bookstores. Buy yourself something pretty and head to one of the many area clubs and eateries to hang with the beautiful people”

Comedy Club
“Great affordable night out with lots of laughs! Get there early and get front row seats. They do require a booking so they know how big an audience to expect for the night and no late guests as it disrupts the show. Food is casual and at a good price, nachos are great!!”
