Mod Club Theatre (commonly called Mod Club) is a theatre in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Its address is 722 College Street, which is in Little Italy.[1] The venue hosts live performance concerts and DJ nights, featuring genres like rock, pop, electronic music, and hip hop.[2]

Mod Club Theatre has a capacity of about 600.[1] Concert-goers can watch acts from the floor, the tables to the side of the room, or the second floor balcony. Additionally, two large video panels give audience members views of the performers on stage. The club's relatively small size contributes to the intimacy and clear sound quality of live shows. Some of the walls feature murals of images related to the 1960s mod subculture.

History[edit]

Mod Club began as a weekly Wednesday club night at the Lava Lounge in 1999. It expanded to two nights a week, at the Lava Lounge and The Revival. After one performance when The Revival was slapped with an over-capacity charge a more permanent location was sought out, and 722 College Street was acquired.[1]
