Downtown Toronto Chess
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

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.
