Wayward is a large space decked out in plush couches, velvet curtains and funky wall paintings. It’s the city’s sexiest spot for getting down and dirty on Friday and Saturday nights.

Located only a couple steps up from the Good Son, this upstairs nightclub is always filled to the brim with young people dancing the night away. With an interior set up to look like a deserted Victorian saloon, this bar is where people come when they’re feeling a little scandalous and ready to let loose.

The space is long and narrow, with tables for bottle service lining the sides. On one end is the bar and on the other, the DJ booth. Behind the bar are the washrooms, which (beware) are not marked as to which gender they cater to – there are portraits near entrance that indicate which to use.

In front of the DJ booth is a very small open space where some people were dancing, surrounded by a sofa and two throne-like wing-back chairs. Although they seem like an odd choice for a club full of benches and sofas, the chairs add a touch of comfort-meets-classy to the room (though they remain largely unoccupied or used as dumping ground for coats).

On Fridays and Saturdays, lines are queued up+down street; full of young professionals that have swapped their suit and tie for something a little more risqué. This upscale nightclub offers bottle service nightly starting at $190. For something a little less “clubby” — but still boasting that nightclub vibe — Wayward is the place for you.

With years of event experience, our VIP Nightlife team can take your ideas from an inspiration to a fully executed, once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Let us plan a great night out in Toronto. Call us quick and easy: 604 283 6601.
