Every weekend, Buddies opens the doors to our community for fun, friends, and dancing
IS BUDDIES A BAR, A THEATRE, OR WHAT?
It’s both. Buddies in Bad Times is a professional theatre company dedicated to the production and development of queer plays. We’ve been around since 1979 and are the largest and longest-running queer theatre in the world. On the weekend, we host late night events to raise money for our theatre and community programming. All the proceeds from the bar go directly to the theatre, which makes late nights at Buddies the most fun you’ve ever had supporting the arts.
Doors usually open at 10:30. Legal Government Issued Photo ID required. Must be 19+ to attend.
$7 cover / $3 before 11:30 on most Saturday nights

Note: As of April 28 our coat check is closed for the summer
How to not be a Jackass
Buddies is part of a diverse neighbourhood of businesses, bars, and people’s apartments – we ask that when you come to party on the weekend that you treat our neighbourhood, our neighbours, and your fellow party-goers with respect.
Tip your bartender.
Consent is sexy.
Use whatever bathroom you want.
