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.
We’re Back… Kind of.
As of August 1, our bar is open, with limited seating in the cabaret, and on our patio (!). Come say hi to Patricia, enjoy a drink, and if you’re lucky, catch a performance.
Hours of operation:
Friday + Saturday // 3-10PM
Sunday // 3-7PM
Drag show Saturday, 7PM // Aug 8: Jada Hudson + Baby Bel Bel
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.
Our bathroom is for folks of all genders.
