The Senator Restaurant has partnered with Hurrier

The Senator is Toronto’s oldest restaurant, dating back to the 19th century when it was just a house at 249 Victoria. Since then, the Senator became a Toronto landmark under the guidance of Bobby Sniderman. Bobby purchased the Senator in 1984 after a successful run at Sam the Record Man. The Senator has always focused on the highest quality ingredients like Cumbrae’s Farms Beef, organic milk from Sheldon Creek Dairy, fresh-squeezed orange juice, home-made stocks, sauces, and batters, and a commitment to only use organic wherever possible. The Senator is entering the digital age with an expanded social presence and a whole new look. Learn more about the Senator at: thesenator.com, Facebook, Twitter, and more.

Tickets are now on sale!



T.O.TIX is thrilled to announce that both Stratford Festival and Shaw Festival tickets are now on sale at our Booth in Yonge Dundas Square.

We have partnered with both companies for several years and are thrilled to provide people who live, work and play in the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area with a place to purchase tickets in person. Many of our customers have said the level of knowledge and customer service provided by our agents face to face draws them back to the Square time and time again as opposed to buying online or over the phone. In addition, we can offer wonderful discounts on some terrific shows as well as transportation options and added bonuses like warehouse tours, talk backs, pre-ordered meals and more.

Heather Martin. Group Sales Manager at the Stratford Festival noted “The Stratford Festival has been working with T.O. TIX for several years to offer Toronto patrons great discounts on Stratford productions throughout the season.  Having a retail ticket outlet in the heart of Dundas square allows the Festival to connect with downtown Torontonians and tourists as an extension of our own Box Office.  The knowledgeable staff is very proactive in educating themselves about our productions and offers. Working with T.O. TIX has been a pleasure”.

T.O.TIX is also an official Ticketmaster and Ticketking agent giving us access to tickets for shows at Yonge Street venues such as The Elgin Wintergarden Theatres, Massey Hall and  The Ed Mirvish Theatre. We are proud to continue serving the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area as Toronto’s unique One-Stop Ticket Shop.

“With the T.O.TIX booth at Yonge Dundas Square, Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts provides a one stop shop for discounted tickets from sports and arts organizations of all sizes, this offers a convenient service  helping increase visitor satisfaction while supporting the economic and cultural vibrancy of Toronto”. Michael Bertuzzi, Manager, Visitor Services, Economic Development & Culture, City of Toronto
