Accessibility Information:

the plumb is physically located at 1655 Dufferin Street, at the southeast corner of Dufferin Street and St. Clair Avenue West. Our front door is just down the alley between Chakra Circle and D’Orio and Associates Eye Care, on the south side of the alleyway.

the plumb is housed in a basement with gallery access only available via a landing and a 10-step staircase (with a handrail). We regret that this poses difficulties for those with physical disabilities. The Block Party event will mainly be taking place outside in the laneway, but the raffle draws, open studios, tarot readings and bar will all be happening inside the gallery space.


If you have any accessibility requests or questions to attend this event, please email us in advance at or let us know in the note section when you purchase a ticket on Eventbrite.
