THE MADDY CLUB REVIEW
The Maddy is an interesting venue because it has a lot to offer with it’s unique construction and crowd. While this bar isn’t for everyone, we’ve been to this venue many times over the years and can definitely see the appeal of it. The Madison House has everything from a live piano bar downstairs, to a massive patio out back, and even a basement area with a dancefloor that plays Top 40 and EDM. Music is pretty average, but if you are particularly fond of the songs they play at the piano bar you’ll love it. Beyond that the Maddy is a maze with a ton of floors, bars, and seating everywhere you go. If you’re a student going to the University of Toronto then it’s very likely you’ll be going to the Maddy at least once while you’re enrolled, if not become a regular. We would say that the Maddy really provides a great bar vibe where you can round up a group of friends, big or small and enjoy reasonably priced drinks, above-average bar food, and meet some new friends. Since this bar really tries to attract anyone and everyone, you’ll often times see a diverse mix of students and bar-goers at this venue. Overall, we think if you’re still in university or college, this is a great place to hit with friends. Also, there is a half-price special on food after 11:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays which makes for cheap but filling meals.

In the basement, there is a large dancefloor and bar in one section with EDM and Top 40, and in another section of the basement is the famous Piano Bar.

Additionally, there is a sunroom area with similar seating and the interior follows suit. Drinks range from $8-9+ for cocktails, $7-9 for a pint, about $20+ for a pitcher, and $9+ for liquor shots. The Maddy does not offer coat check, but there is usually tons of spots to leave your jacket if you’re sitting down at one of the seated areas. There are bathrooms on almost every floor, one near the piano bar, one near the exit to the patio, and one on the very top floor.
THE MADDY LOCATION
