Gate 403

Posted by Staff / January 8, 2008

With free live Jazz or Blues every night, GATE 403 is a nice (inexpensive) alternative to a typical laid-back evening out with friends. With an extensive martini, cocktail and beer list, this cozy bar in the heart of Roncesvalles is a wonderful find that thankfully many still haven't found.

I´m a guitar player from Argentina and I´m going to Toronto on vacation from 8/13 through 8/23. I´d really love to play there at that time. I play alone and my repertoire includes some jazz, tango and argentine folklore. You can listen to me at
Here is my bio.

Delicious food, great music and overall superb ambience. I've been here several times and never disappointed! Definitely try out the bruschetta and the blackened chicken.

Went here this past Saturday for the first time and really loved it. Not crazy crowded or loud, great service and fuss free location. Looking forward to returning soon and trying their food.
