Came here with a couple friends to end the evening. $15 pitchers which is awesome! The place is your typical hole in the wall and it’s tiny. I usually love the playlist and you can’t go wrong with pitchers at that price!

Off the beaten path without being a hipster bar. Just good cheap beer and nice servers with an eclectic crowd. Great place for knocking a few back before you go out somewhere - it gets busy and is really tiny, so after 10 pm you...More

Good random dive spot on Spadina. Was thirsty walking down the street in 32*C and needed to rest the dogs and cool off. Great little find, TV's mounted playing the game, cheapest prices I've seen on a Thursday night anywhere in the area. Super cramped...More

I've been to this little hole in the wall before but it never loses its charm. Bartenders are hot as hell, and the washrooms smell like outhouses. Use the washroom closest to the bar and avoid to farthest one. You'll thank me for it later....More

Cool place to grab a cheap pitcher of beer and sample the local drinking scene. Expect loud drinkers and lots of sports. Probably a place to avoid if you want a quiet, intimate drink!

Found this bar in my first week and just kept going back for the rest of my time in Toronto. Great staff who never give the impression they are hunting for tips, seem to just enjoy working their. No bar I could recommend higher

I always love to go to this place. It is like no other bar. It's not fancy or spic and span but it's a small bar that is so Toronto. The bartenders are always super friendly and the beer is cold.

Don't think so, they are open to bringing in your own though! I've seen people bring in a full pizza without any issue!
