About Byz
The grand matriarch of the gay village just celebrated her 17th anniversary. Our celebrated martinis (officially the first martini bar in the city) and highly praised chef (Jerome Rivest) and our menu speak for themselves. On Fridays and Saturdays, after 11pm, the walls slide away creating one large funky lounge with some of the best DJ’s in the city spinning until 2am. In the summer, many of our patrons enjoy a breezy eve on our designer styled private rear patio.

James Chatto said “Byzantium is one of the places to get shaken or stirred in Canada”. The Toronto Star labeled our customers “Byz Boys”. But don’t be misled by labels. We pride ourselves on making everyone feel welcome. It shows in the great mix of our patrons...young, old, male, female, straight, gay, movie star or not. We are just a fun place with fabulous food and the best libations in the city. Come meet an old friend or make a new one.


Check out our Summerlicious (July 8-24) menu and then come and taste Byz's fabulous food with a $38 prix fixe meal.

Every Sunday. 8oz AAA Prime Rib Dinner with all the fixins for $17.95 Very popular so book early. See our Menu for more details
