Oops... the previous 1 star review was an accident, I apologize! I went to the citizen last weekend with my friends and we had a great time! I would definitely recommend this bar for a night out

Delicious menu filled with all the best comfort food & their dinning room transforms into a dance floor Thurs-Sat! You can go from dinner to bottle service for a one stop shop. Also a perfect spot to watch all sports games, every seat in the venue has view of a TV. Music is great, comfortable lounge seating, warm ambiance and the location is conveniently in the heart of the entertainment district. Highly recommend!

Cool vibes, good music that everyone can relate to, beautiful decor. Kind of felt like partying in a large living room with a bar. A little too bright for a late night destination.

Pretty good atmosphere, a lively and varied crowd, and when me and my friends arrived, we didn't have to wait and we got there maybe 11:30 pm. It was a great evening, but it gets busy as is usual. But bar service is pretty good once you get to the bar. Would party there again

My band and I performed here for the Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Holiday party. It was an Apres Ski theme and the atmosphere was absolutely perfect for this fun and casual party. PLUS amazing/accommodation staff and delicious appetizers. Definitely a great spot for events!
