What you'll do

Do you love sci-fi, fantasy, or horror? Video games, board games, or comic books? There will be something for every kind of geek on this tour.

We will visit three very different venues, starting our night at a small mansion in the downtown village area. You'll pick from a list of incredible cocktails, shots, or a craft beer (first drink of the night is on me!) - if you're feeling adventurous, you can roll a 20-sided die to pick your drink. We'll chat and get to know each other a bit, share some stories and our interests, then take a tour through the various themed rooms and take some really cool photos!

Our next stop will be a Harry Potter-themed bar with the most interesting drinks in the city (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), including butterbeer! Along the way I will tell you a bit more about our city, point out some landmarks, and give suggestions for the rest of your trip if you like.

We will end the night either at an all you can play arcade bar or a board game cafe. The barcade has a great selection of old school video games and pinball machines. At the board game cafe I can teach and host several fun party games. Regardless, there will be more great local beer and other drinks on the menu.

I am a life-long enthusiast of all things geek, including Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, video games, board games, Star Wars and Marvel/DC! I have lived in Toronto for over 10 years and have a deep knowledge of the most interesting themed bars, restaurants, and pubs that will delight the geek inside of you. I have been hosting these types of parties for friends and now extending my knowledge to travelers. I am also an experienced board game host, improv comedian, and lover of karaoke. I am fluent in three languages and not so fluent in many others. As a frequent traveler myself, I love meeting new people through AirBnB events, learning about their backgrounds, and making them feel welcomed, comfortable, and entertained in my city.

Went on this tour over spring break, and we really enjoyed ourselves! The next time I'm in Toronto, I'm definitely going to visit these places again

My boyfriend and I had a blast on this geek experience. Going to the nerd bars was amazing, mainly due to the great nerdy playlist in Dany's car. What made it even better was the fact we got to know other people, and the man knows what he's doing! I'm not much of a drinker, however, he suggested the perfect drink for me at Storm Crow and I was impressed with his insight. Thank you Dany!

Dany was an awesome host! Our flight got delayed and were 30 mins late but he was understanding and still welcomed us to embark on the tour. Our first visit was at Storm Crow Manor and we played a game to help us get familiar with the other guests and it was fun getting to know them throughout the night. Drinks and the game were fun and I would return again to these places. After the tour, Dany sent us some sites to see around the city complimenting with the tour and we did check out some of the sites he recommended. Overall, fun and exciting experience. Very put together and a great chance to explore the nerdy side of the city!

Wonderful experience - so many super cool bars, definitely sufficiently nerdy, appreciated that Dany was giving us a lift to all those places, would have been impossible without a car. Thanks for the great experience!
