So we thought we'dfill out the GTA map, looking east, north and west of thedowntown core. When the festivals are all over, the followingvenues will still be in business serving up jazz, as theywere before the festival season commenced.EAST0DanforthO'Connor Dr.listings: jazz in the clubsAbsolute LoungeHilton Suites Toronto/Markham ConferenceCentre and Spa8500 Warden Avenue, Markham905-470-8500Alleycatz2409 Yonge St. 416-481-6865Every Mon Salsa Night.
