It’s 1:50 a.m. and the squad is still wired. What are fun-loving night owls to do?

While Toronto’s liquor laws require bars to stop serving alcohol at 2:00 a.m., not all of them will kick you out afterwards. In fact, some spots only start to pick up around this time, as enlightened club crawlers know. From swanky clubs to rocking stages to 24-hour diners, here are six popular Toronto hangouts where you can keep the party going after the last call.

Sneaky Dee’s

Known for its delicious nachos and Tex-Mex fare Sneaky Dee’s, is a popular late night hotspot. There are live music nights, weekly Emo parties and dance parties with the 90s and early 2000s themes and more! The graffiti-covered walls and booths provide an edgy vibe and eclectic atmosphere. It’s a must-stop for when the night is young.
