DPRTMNT Toronto Club Review

Address and Location

DPRTMNT Toronto is located off of King West at 473 Adelaide St W, Toronto, but again to access the venue you’ll need to go through the alleyway that connects to Portland St. to get to the front door. The location of this venue is central to the King West clubbing district as it’s surrounded by many popular bars and clubs that the area is so well known for.

Club Size and Ambiance

DPRTMNT Toronto is a massive EDM venue that can easily handle upwards of 800-1000 people. The atmosphere is nothing short of captivating with it’s state-of-the-art lighting and sound system that was specifically designed for House and Electronic DJ performances in mind. 

The crowd typically will congregate toward the front stage, the main dancefloor area in the center, and at their booths if they booked bottle service. This club is considered high energy because of the type of music and the crowd that it tends to draw every weekend, so if that’s what you’re looking for in a club, this would be a good choice.

DPRTMNT Toronto’s music is known for hosting several big-name house DJs and artists. Since their grand opening they’ve hosted artists including KREAM, Nicky Romero, TWINSICK, Alex Wann, Wakyin, and Tita Lau. DPRTMNT Toronto is considered a full fledged EDM/Rave venue as opposed to just a typical club that plays top 40 or hip hop, and caters to a specific demographic that really enjoys this type of music and vibe.
