The Cavern Bar

Permanently closed

That's it, folks!

Like many other businesses, we've had to close our doors due to the global pandemic. What we thought was a temporary closure, unfortunately, has become a permanent one.

As some of you know, The Cavern Bar is owned and operated by the HI Toronto hostel, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to offering quality accommodations to conscious travellers from all around the world.

 With the current stay-at-home policies and ongoing travel restrictions, the travel industry has been one of the hardest-hit sectors. In these challenging times, HI Toronto has been fortunate enough to begin working with the City of Toronto and Toronto Public Health to make the hostel available to vulnerable individuals who need a place to stay during the peak of the pandemic. We’ve always believed that helping our neighbors helps make our neighborhood a better place to visit, and right now that’s more important than ever. 

Unfortunately, while we continue to assist in the community, we have made the difficult decision to close The Cavern permanently. We want to thank everyone who's contributed to making The Cavern the gritty, fun-packed basement bar that it was. To all the bands, DJs, patrons, travellers and staff who have supported this bar from its beginnings in [year], thank you for helping us show the world a little bit of what Toronto is all about. We're proud to have been a part of it.
