Arts and Culture

We are proud to offer a wide variety of club events to capture the interests of our diverse membership. From music, theatre, and the visual arts to business, politics, and the law, you will find something to capture your imagination among our monthly programme of speakers and events.

Those with a particular interest in wine and fine dining will be spoiled by our monthly wine programme. Vintners from around the world come to the Club giving members special access to the winemakers themselves and their latest offerings.

With a deep appreciation for the arts woven into its very fabric, the University Club of Toronto has acquired one of the most comprehensive private collections of Canadian art in the country, including treasured works from each member of The Group of Seven, their contemporaries, and the Canadian Group of Painters that followed in the 1930’s.

A stack of books, the top of which reads A Guide to the Collecting and Care of Original Prints.

The Club’s culinary team prepares an array of ever-changing contemporary menus for lunch, dinner, the bar, and special events that focus on seasonal and sustainable fare, sourced locally when possible.

Membership also grants exclusive access to the Club’s in-house Sommelier and private wine collection. Our extensive wine program includes private cellar tours, winemaker’s dinners, access to exclusive small batch sales, bespoke winery tours, and more.

The Club’s sweeping events calendar ranges immensely, offering unique experiences you won’t find anywhere else. Experience intimate live musical performances in secret spaces, discover new works by internationally acclaimed authors, satiate your curiosity amidst academic debates, and flex your creativity with hands-on workshops… You’ll discover something unexpected behind every door.
