Originally located on Bloor Street and a stone’s throw away from Honest Ed’s, Sneaky Dee’s had a true, authentic, punk rock inception in the 80s. Still an integral part of the music scene, today Sneaky Dee’s concert venue is home to a number of the city’s best parties. From What’s Poppin’ on Wednesday nights to Shake A Tail on Saturdays, upstairs at Sneak’s is always raving with the underground and independent culture of Toronto.
The 200+ capacity concert venue has seen some great talent grace its stage. From Broken Social Scene to Feist, Sneaky Dee’s has hosted local and touring musicians since it began (sort of serendipitously) in the basement of the restaurant’s first location. From punk to hip hop and every indie darling in between, catching a band at Sneaky Dee’s is always a memorable night out! Whether you’re surrounded by rabble-rousing scenesters out celebrating an independent vinyl release or your favourite west coast buzz band makes a stop in town, it’s likely happening on the Sneaky Dee’s stage.
Tourists and artists often fill the downstairs booths, but if music and great food aren’t your thing in Toronto – having a seat at the bar, taking in the atmosphere over a pint, and watching the Jays or the Leafs is also an option. Now one of Toronto’s busiest independent restaurants, Sneaky Dee’s will continue to prove itself as a staple and go-to hub of culture in Toronto.
