If you come here at term start, end or break--watch out, it's packed with drunken students. Otherwise, it's a multi-level pub in an old house with typical pub fare such as sandwiches. There are a lot of mainstream brews on tap so if you're looking...More

Group of us popped in here on Friday night for a drink, ended up staying for a few hours. Great atmosphere, staff were friendly efficient and helpful, cocktails were very reasonable and super tasty - recommend the 14 Madison which is Jagermeister with ginger ale.

For starters, service was next to non-existent. There was initially four of us, and only one menu to share. There were no servers for at least 15-20 minutes and we only managed to order when we flagged someone down. It seems like none of the...More

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and

The Madison Avenue Pub was founded in 1983 and comprises 3 old Victorian Homes in The Annex area of Toronto, right behind the Spadina subway station. There are 6 levels all of which are a little different, like the Piano Bar with a piano player three nights a week. There are 5 levels of patios with lots of seating and a large outdoor bar on the second floor. Food and drink specials daily, something for everyone.
