About Sneaky Dee’s:
Sneaky Dee’s started as a family business in 1987 and not much has really changed. Sure, the raging city of Toronto has claimed Sneaky Dee’s as its own – everyone from Arcade Fire to Fucked Up has graced the darkly lit upstairs stage, and it has made a mark as a cultural institution. Through the hard times and the good, Sneaky Dee’s (known to locals as “Dee’s”, “Sneak’s”, or “Sneaky’s”) has opened their arms and wrapped them tight around our bustling metropolis. This big bear hug has touched Toronto civilians and tourists alike and it’s born a vibrant community. For more info visit
