722 College St, Toronto, ON M6G 1C5
On Friday I went to the Mod Club to check out The Antlers show. The venue is accessible, so I thought I would be an opportunist and take some pictures. Mod Club has a capacity of 700, and it offers killer acoustics and lighting at its general admission live music shows and DJ’d dance parties.
There is a long ramp at the front entrance of Mod Club that takes you to a wide set of double doors with an automatic opener. The accessible washroom is unmarked and located to the left of this entrance. The venue space is straight through a second set of double doors.
Because the venue is a general admission open space, it may be difficult to find a suitable viewing space if you use a wheelchair. Audiences stand at shows at the Mod Club and there is no designated accessible viewing area. There is a small inaccessible second level to the right of the stage and a full bar to the left on the main level. There are hardwood floors throughout the space and tile in the bathroom.
The accessible washroom is large and includes a 30” door, 32” high sink, and one grab bar. The paper towels and soap dispenser are within reach.
The nearest accessible subway stop is Queen’s Park. There is street parking on College Street, a parking lot at the Metro across the street, and a Green P lot a few blocks down at 157 Beatrice Street.
