Well known as the ACC, The Air Canada Centre is home of the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL), the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League (NLL). Some of the art deco facade on the outskirts of the arena pays homage to the building’s history previously occupied by Canada Post’s Toronto Postal Delivery Building.
Since its inception in 1999, the outlying area of the ACC has developed into Maple Leaf Square, with the Le Germain hotel and condominiums as well as a number of restaurants, supermarkets and office buildings in the vicinity.
The ACC is a premier concert and event venue. The Tragically Hip played ACC’s first concert and other bands like Bon Jovi, U2, The Police and Rush have played up to 4 or 5 concerts in one tour at the ACC.
There are no tours of the Air Canada Centre. The best way to get to the ACC is via Union Station and the walkway connected to the Centre. The ACC is a five minute walk on Bremnar Boulevard to The CN Tower and the Rogers Centre. If you can’t get into a game, Real Sports Bar across the street has over 40 screens to watch your favourite team. There’s also a big screen outside for fans.
