The Rex Jazz & Blues Bar


194 Queen Street West
M5V1Z1 Toronto , ON
Ontario CA

Where jazz musicians come to hear jazz. Since the late '80s, the Rex has been at the forefront of Toronto's thriving local jazz scene. The casual atmosphere, eclectic mix of retro-chic decor, and an exciting variety of draught beer combine to make The Rex feel like a second home. The Jazz & Blues Bar continually attracts Canada's finest musicians and is unique in that it remains distinctly inexpensive and affordable for the budget-conscious.

The Rex is wheelchair accessible, but as the washrooms are elevated one step above street level, we ask that those in need of wheelchair accessibility enter through our St.Patrick Street entrance at the North West corner of the building.
