A world onto itself, the unique character of Toronto’s largest nightclub creates a club wonderland like no other.
The Guvernment, affectionately known to the masses as “The Guv” is a Toronto institution. For the past 15 years The Guvernment has been an authority on the pulse of cool and creating the ultimate party experience. Synonymous with international talent bookings, playful productions and unprecedented state of the art audio and visual capabilities, The Guvernment has been a staple in Toronto and global nightlife.
From dusk til dawn, The Guvernment (one of the 7 wonders of the Entertainment World) opens its door to provide music lovers and social hedonists alike with the ability to experience an unparalleled party playground.
We invite you to get lost in the labyrinth of The Guvernment’s maze of rooms. Comprised of 8 individual rooms including the infamous rooftop patio, Skybar, which overlooks Lake Ontario. Once you get lost, you won’t want to be found! Choose your sound and choose your poison with each uniquely designed room, each equipped with its own DJ booth, bottle service tables, dance floors and attitude; there truly is something for everyone. Whether you find it in CHROMA, Surface, D’Luxe, Acid Lounge, Gallery or, of course, the Main Room, you will most definitely find it.
Spanning over 22,000 square feet, boasting 20’ high ceilings and hosting thousands of weekend revelers, the decks in the Main Room have been graced by the most notorious names in electronic music such as: Tiesto, Avicii, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Afro Jack and Armin Van Buuren to name an intimate few. Still, our renowned resident DJs Mark Oliver (www.markoliver.ca) and music duo, Manzone& Strong (http://www.facebook.com/MANZONEandSTRONG), regularly keep the party going until the morning sun rises. Praised with being some of Toronto’s leading talent, these three larger-than-life characters often play for their 3,500 closest friends.
Unlike any other venue, The Guvernment Entertainment Complex specializes in showcasing several sounds in one prime location. Its only at The Guvernment that you’ll experience expressive beats and hard-hitting rhythms of House and Progressive as a sea of bodies moves around you on the Main Room dance floor. The music is generated by a world-class, state-of-the-art, digitally-enhanced sound system; this computer-driven sound system remains as one of only four in the world! Adding to the atmosphere and delighting the senses, the Main Room is awash in colour and light with a massive, custom 10-foot-high by 30-foot-wide LED screen set to amplify the music.
While the cutting-edge sound and lighting blow up the spot, the rooftop patio and its view of the Toronto skyline serves to refresh and and cool off your crew. Whether you’re a party of 40 or 4000, we have enough space and booming bass for the biggest and loudest night you can devise. From ultra-swank to Miami Beach to Blade Runner-inspired chic the award-winning and internationally recognized designers Munge//Leung and Kenny Baird have created a diversity of spaces to suit different styles and create distinct moods.
The Guvernment Entertainment Complex has been rated number one nightclub in the world by NightGuide Magazine, number eight in the world by DJ Mag and voted EYE Magazine’s “Best Dance Club” in 2000 and 2001. While the city flocks to this party mecca every week to experience the legendary staple nights, it’s the unparalleled experience, which makes all who enter, simply “luv the Guv”.
