The Senator consists of two very distinct historic rooms - the original 1940’s Diner on our main floor and the Top o’ the Senator, an intimate room that dates back to the 1860’s, on the second floor. Both rooms are fully licensed.
The Top o' the Senator is located on our second floor in the original building that dates back to the 1860's. A talented roster of artists, highlighted by our resident Juno award-winning blues pianist Julian Fauth, perform various genres of music every Friday and Saturday night; please see full listings on our MUSIC page. The 24-seat room is on top of the original Senator Diner and is outfitted with period furnishings including a 1920’s Prohibition era bar from Cleveland and a classic 1929 Heintzman upright piano.
We take full dinner reservations for both the Main Floor and the Top o’ the Senator, on our second floor.
If you are reserving for dinner and show for either Friday or Saturday evening, please indicate that you are reserving for the Top o' the Senator when reserving online.

Christmas with The Lesters
A joyous evening with the Lesters...A Senator tradition.
Looking at the pictures in our Top o' the Senator Gallery, you will immediately realize you need not look any further. Whether it's for a business meeting, birthday or private party, there is no other space in Toronto with such intimacy and historic charm. The Top o' the Senator is a fully self-contained facility that comfortably seats 24 for a sit-down dinner or a few more for cocktails. We will be happy to work with you to develop custom menus and services or to book one of our artists if you are interested in including live music in creating your truly memorable event.
