New Broadview House Hotel

The New Broadview House Hotel.

The New Broadview House Hotel is a four story hotel at Broadview Avenue and Queen Street East in Toronto, Ontario.

Built in 1893, the Romanesque style hotel was built for Archibald Dingham and located in the historic neighbourhood of Riverdale.

Since at least 2004, rumours have circulated that the building will be bought and renovated to become a version of the Drake or the Gladstone, boutique hotel/bar/performance art venues on Queen St. W. So far, however, there are no signs of this actually happening.

Still operating as a hotel, the lower floor is Jilly's, a rough & tumble strip club. The operation was the scene of a barmaid stabbing in the early 1990s.

  • Toronto East Chinatown
  • Broadview subway station
  • The Danforth - Greektown
