Downtown Toronto Chess

Annex Chess Club is steps from Bathurst and Bloor

The Annex is a popular neighbourhood in the heart of downtown Toronto. A traditional student area, its beautiful Victorian and Edwardian houses are nestled behind a busy stretch of Bloor Street filled with cafes, bars, bookstores, and sushi restaurants.

The Annex Chess Club meets on Monday nights from 6:30 to 11:00 pm at 918 Bathurst Street – just north of Bloor. We’re easily accessible by foot, bike, car, or TTC:

  • steps from Bathurst subway station
  • on-street parking available

Annex Chess Club meets in the Great Hall at 918 Bathurst Street

The Great Hall at the 918, with a 30′ cathedral ceiling, is a beautiful (air-conditioned!) playing hall for chess, and a popular tournament venue in Toronto: it was the site of the Labour Day Open and Thanksgiving Open chess tournaments in 2010 and again in 2011.

One thought on “Contact”

  1. I’m living in Toronto from now till end of May. I’m a casual chess player, and would like to come by and play on Mondays. The earliest I can make it is April 10th, but I see there is a tournament beginning that week. Will that mean casual games are not on until the tournament is over? And how does one get into a casual game? Is there a sign up sheet?

    Thank you
