Wonderful cocktails presentation, unique and creative drinking experience. Interesting drinks, tastefully sip, good services, and stylish ambience. Impressed! Locate on Queen St W, carefully look for a minimal black door with 'barchef' sign.

Amazing cocktails, amazing staff. We tried two cocktails and two local whiskeys. Everything was so good, and the staff was so kind to help us choosing. I will definitely come back.

We stubbled upon this bar by mistake, and we are so glad we did. The darkened entrance makes customers feel very special for going there! There are loads of spirits and cocktails to choose from, and a good range of prices depending on what you...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
