WHO ARE WE?

We are a convivial Club of people who enjoy the arts.

Together we stage hundreds of events per year — concerts, art exhibitions, plays, whisky tastings, literary talks, life-drawing sessions, writing workshops, play readings and stage performances, film showings, poetry readings… Over half of us have a professional connection with the arts; the rest of us are dedicated arts lovers and supporters.

We’re very informal, there is no dress code, and we eat family-style at large tables, which makes it easy to get to know other members. Many of our events involve a meal, and the bar is available whenever the Club is open — all this at very reasonable prices. Conversation flows easily and is always wide-ranging and interesting.

Members enjoy the large art and rehearsal studio, two meeting rooms and a comfortable library — and of course, our iconic Great Hall! Our lounge and library make the Club a pleasant place to hang out in the centre of town, at 14 Elm Street, a historic building near Dundas and Yonge.

The interdisciplinary nature of the arts at our Club is one of the things that makes it so interesting. You’ll find yourself in lively conversation with a visual artist, a poet or writer, a musician, architect, stage or film artist, or someone with a practice or an interest in other creative pursuits.
