Wrapped in a mystery, trapped in an enigma, swallowed whole by word-of-mouth, The Labyrinth is one of those places that would be so easy to miss if you don't know exactly what you're looking for. There are many different sections when one considers The Labyrinth as a place to come and consume gratuitous amounts of alcohol or to have a good time. Or to just have any kind of time.

Popular among University of Toronto students, The Lab (as it is most commonly referred to) also seems to be a place where the more eccentric and outcasted types have found their home. People of all walks of life have been seen entering The Lab between all hours of operation, proving that it does not discriminate. Especially during their signature 72 Hour Weekends, where The Lab opens at Midnight on Friday morning and doesn't close again until the break of daylight Monday morning.

Helmed by a scarcely seen and often never heard of silent owner by the name of Daniel Seville, The Lab exists to provide Toronto with a place of endless wonder and unsolved mystery…

The Lounge


Shoehorned behind Future’s Bakery is Labyrinth Lounge, where a university student crowd dances and pre-drinks, while Annex regulars settle in to the split-level lounge to imbibe. The dungeon-like basement lends the nightspot its name. Upstairs, the decor is humdrum: blood-red walls, a bit of exposed brick, Warhol prints. Nothing special at all.

The Labyrinth Lounge is what everybody knows and tends to be where students and drone workers tend to come and spend their money to try and relax. A casual and low-key lounge atmosphere, it tends to be one of the perfect spots for drinks after class or to just hang out and party on the weekends.

With a full service kitchen that promotes the classic dive-bar menu of finger foods and horribad deliciousness, The Lab Lounge tends to accommodate most people's needs, even if the seating can be somewhat lacking on occasion. That is, of course, unless the weather permits the patio to be open for use.
