A landmark hot spot on Queen St. West in downtown Toronto, the Rivoli is an ever evolving destination. The busy Restaurant serves eclectic global comfort food; at the intimate Side Bar, patrons cozy up to enjoy cocktails and great music; the Pool Hall upstairs offers vintage tables, full menu and comfy booths; the best people watching in town goes down on the Patio, while the Rivoli's Back room features some of the finest programming in the city from alternative live Music to Comedy and spoken-word events. Serving up great food and art since 1982, the Rivoli is a popular restaurant and night club on Queen St. West in downtown Toronto, located in the the original Rivoli Theatre, home of 1920's vaudeville and burlesque. In the '80s, the Rivoli was synonymous with Toronto's black-garbed Queen West scene (Mike Myers's Saturday Night Live German club character Dieter is said to have been inspired by a Riv waiter). This reputation has changed as much as the club's clientele, but the Riv's atmosphere is still unique. Bare Naked Ladies, Molly Johnson, Cowboy Junkies, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Blue Rodeo, The Kids in the Hall, Ron Sexsmith, Jane Siberry, Kathleen Edwards, Sarah Harmer, Sean Cullen, Handsome Ned, Hawksley Workman, and so many more talented Canadian artists have started their careers and/or graced the stage - some like Feist even worked the bar at one point. International stars like Beck, Indigo Girls, Iggy Pop, Janeane Garofalo, Josh Ritter, Patty Smyth, Courtney Love, Tori Amos, Michelle Shocked, Robin Williams and others have also performed at the Riv. You just never know who will turn up, so please check our listings for upcoming events.

Rossini's brings Jazz and Authentic Italian cuisine to Kits Beach. When the May family took possession of 1525 Yew Street in August of 1992, little did they know, despite 20 years of collective experience in the hospitality industry, that they had instituted a legend. Hungry not just for good pasta, but also for a neighbourhood gathering place, the local kitsilano residents came in droves. Everyone was made to feel welcome. The May family - Arni, Anne, and sons Mark, Stephen and Shayne - created an ambience of warmth and charm that soon had the locals treating Rossini's as a home away from home. And of course the news spread. Arni and Anne are the perfect hosts who never let tha standard of cordial welcome drop. Mark oversees the varied and affordable wine cellar; Stephen keeps the bar humming with a never-failing sense of humour; and Shayne has discovered a knack for cooking. (His recipe for Black Sambuka Prawns has become justifyably famous.) The extended family all get put to work upon occasion - Shannon, Shayne's wife and Janette, Mark's Wife. Rossini's chef is headed up by Italy's "Nello Foschi". A creative individual who is delighted to interact with his many customers preparing special requests. Nello's culinary creativeness shrines. Arni's background as a musician and producer, spannning close to four decades, inspired him to offer live entertainment and led to a roster of stellar performers, among them such legendary entertainers as Charlie Byrd, Herb Ellis, Tal Farlow, The Ray Brown Trio, Hawaiins Betty Loo Taylor, Jimmy Borges, and Noel Okimoto, songstresses Debbie Duncan and Amandah Jantzen, and a host of Vancover's finest musicians. The wonderful Linton Garner was also a mainstay of the glittering array of talent, performing several nights every week until passing away in March 2003. A foundation has since been set up in his name to provide scholarships in Music studies at Capilano college. The Mays don't just sit back on their laurels having amassed a large and faithful following for their winning combination of great food and wine, cozy atmosphere and outstanding live entertainment. Due to the family's long involvement in sports, Rossini's sponsors volleyball, fastball, and racquetball and is a strong supporter of local professional sports teams. The restaurant also does evetns for charities: Cancer Research, the Food Bank, Childrens wish foundation and a traditional Christmans Lunch for the less fortunate served by members of the "Senate Club," a light hearted association formed by some of Rossini's regular customers. In June 1999, Rossini's expanded it's excellent quality of entertainment and warm atmosphere, to a 2nd location in Gastown. But it is above all the friendliness of the atmosphere here that ensures that the customers keep coming back for weddings, engagement parties, birthdays, gatherings of all kinds.

In 10 years The Cellar Restaurant and Jazz Club has established itself as not only the top jazz venue in Vancouver, but as one of the top jazz clubs in the world. In an ambitious undertaking, club owner Cory Weeds bought the establishment in the summer of 2000 and quickly turned it into the premier jazz venue in Vancouver. The focus of the club was to promote Vancouver and Canadian jazz musicians. The room has seen visits by every major player from the Vancouver Scene and across Canada. In addition Weeds has brought in many of the major names on the international scene to the club either with their own band or more often then not, to join forces with the best that the Vancouver jazz community has to offer. Some of these international musicians to perform include David 'Fathead' Newman, Tom Harrell, Charles MacPherson, Benny Golson, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Ed Thigpen, Kenny Garrett, Les McCann, Scott Hamilton, Joey Defrancesco, George Coleman and Eric Alexander. The Cellar Restaurant / Jazz Club is often compared to the legendary New York nightspot, The Village Vanguard for its vibe and acoustics.

The Yale Hotel began in the mid 1880's as a CPR bunkhouse where workers relaxed after clearing land for the new community of Vancouver. On June 13, 1886 an unusually strong blast of wind set fire raging through the city. In less than 45 minutes 1,000 wooden structures were destroyed. The Yale, separated by bush from the main area of Vancouver, was one of the few that survived. Soon after that dramatic event, the Yale became a popular gathering place for the community. The building was refurbished and by 1889 was renamed the Colonial Hotel. It served miners, loggers, fishermen and CPR workers who trudged up an Indian trail in the woods from False Creek. There was a stable below the street level for the occasional carriage trade. By night, the hotel became a haunt for the workers and their friends. Yaletown had a reputation for wild nightlife, and the activity at the Colonial was supposedly the wildest. The hotel was named the Yale again in 1911. Meanwhile, deep in the southern United States, the black culture gave birth to the blues. Rhythm and blues is perceived in many ways. Sometimes glamorous, sometimes heart-wrenching, the blues wound its way through the history of America and emerged as a Canadian tradition at the Yale. Today, after more than two decades of this tradition, the Yale is the focal point for rhythm and blues in Western Canada. The icons of traditional blues, as well as new talent, come by to play and jam. Pop stars and screen personalities frequent the Yale to hear their R&B idols. As well, the Yale recently built its own precision engineered recording studio. In the basement, where stable boys used to groom the horses, the Yale today records live performances to promote up-and-coming local blues players and to raise funds for charities.
