Arrive by 11 - no cover charge and have some fun

A nice little spot to have drinks with friends, listen to music and dance. The bar, like most establishments on College St. is long and narrow, but the vibes are really nice.

My 5 friends and I stumbled upon this place for my friend's birthday and we had an amazing time! We came in at around 10:30pm and the staff were able to seat us at a couple of tables right away. There is quite a good drink selection and the drink prices weren't too bad (the Apocalypse and Blue Blazer were... More

Nice Atmosphere, great live bands, fun place on a Friday and Saturday night. Food was decent. Salads were good. Great place to go for a drink. I love their cappuccinos they are perfect!

Go to the back bar. Jonathan will take care of you. We had some delicate palates and Jonathan made the beverages work. Go there.

Attended after googling what is on Toronto...and spotted a mixology competition for jamiesons whisky. Lively ,loud and young!!...we did not let the fact we increased the average age somewhat distract us from our delicious food and wine..that was when the wine arrived..minor grumble,but we did have to remind the waitress she had forgotten our drinks, which were on the bar!!..However...

My friend and I decided to give this place a try during. The appetizers are great, so is the bar, the ambiance a‎nd the service. The stairs to the washrooms are a little be of a safety hazard though. On a Friday night, they charge cover, though the music wasn't worth paying for it.

Never went here to eat there, we only went to listen to the band playing on Sunday night, The Grind. The bar gets packed with people dancing to the music of this great band. The vocalist is such an amazing singer and dancer. You can't stop looking at her.

Looking for a place to celebrate an occasion we found this place on line. Called the bar and ordered seats a few days before, we asked about food and were sent the menu (the one which is on this website). What was our shock when after ordering drinks we were told that they don't serve foods! 15 hundred people after... More

Went recently on a Saturday night and based on some of the write-ups was very excited; however, in the end we came away very disappointed. The atmosphere is cold and uninviting. The room lacks decore or warmth and is very bright. While the staff is generally friendly, service is average. The menu is basically a variety of average deep fried... More

Staying in Little Italy

Neighborhood Profile
Little Italy
Toronto's Little Italy is a city hotspot for cafe culture and nightlife. There's something for everyone in Little Italy, apparent from the cross-section of clubbers in glitzy dresses, and elderly couples arm-in-arm heading to their favorite wine or pasta spot. Cafes spill onto the wide sidewalks, pool lounges and bars are always teeming with noise and activity, and both outdoor and indoor marketplaces are packed with fresh fish, cured meats, and pungent cheeses. All of the activity makes it a perfect spot for people-watching, especially over a nice glass of red wine or a quick and sumptuous slice of pizza at one of the many eateries or trattorias in the area.
