The Art of Binging: Late Night Eating and Drinking at Nuit Blanche

Who doesn’t love Nuit Blanche? It’s a free celebration of contemporary art where galleries, museums, hidden corridors and, in some cases, kitchens, are bustling with creative conversation until sunrise.  From 7pm to 7am this Saturday, more than 130 art projects will be scattered across three different art zones in downtown Toronto. An all-nighter of such proportions requires proper sustenance, and while you can always rely on the usual 24-hour spots (like Fran’s or 7 West), there are also a bunch of bars and restos that will be extending their hours. Whether you’re a starving artist or just using Nuit Blanche as an excuse to practice the art of late-night binging, here are some recommendations on where to eat and drink past 2am in each of the three designated Art Zones:

Zone A – Downtown North (Spadina to Jarvis; Dupont to Queen)

Ceramic art and salty frites await at The Gardiner
