Escape Below

Descend into the subterranean lair for underground electronic music, located in the heart of downtown Toronto.

Inspired by intimate clubs in cities worldwide, merging the perfect balance of drinks and a serious sound system — all of this while hiding in plain sight.

Nightly DJ programming defines the lush atmosphere of this urban terrarium. Curating the finest local artists and reviving the social experiences that make for a memorable night out—leave your pretensions behind, forget bottle service, forget your phone, interact with humans.

our principles

Remember to be aware of those around you and personal space. We will not tolerate — racism, sexism, aggressive behaviour, or harassment of any kind towards our guests or staff. Should you feel uncomfortable or in need of help, please do not hesitate to speak to one of our staff members in a ’Sub Division’ branded shirt or armband.

There is no phone use permitted in the main room. Photography and video are strictly prohibited — nothing spoils the dance floor like a bright screen and camera flashes. 

Please respect others privacy and limit your phone use to the lobby.

Sub Division offers a 21 and over experience.

Anyone caught dealing drugs will be asked to leave the venue and not be permitted to return.

Come as you are — we care about the music, not about how you look. However it’s a good idea to wear your dancing shoes.

There isn’t any. However, we offer a wide selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic options at our bar.

Everyone is equal. There are no VIP’s and no private areas. Feel free to roam around and make new friends. 

We’re excited to announce that we will be moving Sub Division to a new home in the near future.

A different location, with the same SD vibe. We will keep you updated on our progress through our socials.

Until then, join us for our ON/OFF Summer Series at 461 King St. W. May 5th / June 16th / July 14th / August 11th.
