Reposado

Reposado on Ossington has just what you'd expect - tequila. But this isn't your run-of-the-mill Mexican themed bar. You won't find any tacky sombreros or other Mexican paraphernalia on the walls. Instead, Reposado features fresh squeezed margaritas, five imported beers on tap and live music three nights a week.

Compared to bars like LeVack Block and Sweatty Betty's further south, the mood here is slightly more intimate and a bit more refined. Exposed brick walls, a long narrow room and just the right amount of mood lighting set the tone. There are a handful of stools to cozy up to the bar and a scattering of four seater tables near the front of the room.

Live musicians and DJs settle in next to the front window overlooking Ossington. Thursdays and Fridays showcase live jazz and swing from about 9:45 to 1am. There is also live music Wednesdays and DJs most other nights.

On tap are five beers that go way beyond the usual - Stratford Pilsner, Erdinger, Delirium Tremens, and St. Ambroise Pale Ale and Oatmeal Stout. But save room for specialties like the grand margarita palta martini as well as the lineup of premium tequilas such as Don Julio 1942 and Sauza Tres Generaciones. To kill any aftertaste Reposado offers a small selection of tapas including tequila and cured salmon, chorizo and chips and dip.

It's Sauza Tres Generaciones (in Spanish), not Tres Generations (half Spanish-half English). (I'm a big tequila drinker, + originally from Mexico).

hola chavos,
congratulations on your website and also for the respect that you are giving to 'tequila'.

i would like to invite you to visit 'youtube - evanoff - la misma historia' and myspace.com/evan0ff. in mexico, most of my music is called 'pop/rock latino' but if you check out the other sites and videos you can get a better idea of my music.

i will return to mexico in mid-july after a brief tour in europe and at this moment we are trying to put together a trip to canada in august or late july. at this moment we still have only tentative dates, but would like you to consider the possiblity of an appearance in 'REPOSADO'? although the videos and promos you will see are in spanish, i also sing in english..... actually, i am both mexican and canadian, raised very close to the agave capital, but presently residing in mexico city.

please contact me if you have any questions or require any further information. i will be looking forward to hearing from you.

muchas gracias,

Evanoff

After all the buzz I finally got to visit Reposado last month. Unimpressed. Ordered an Amaretto Sour and was served only half a glass. Waited forever for the bartender too, even though only 4 people in the bar. Won't be going back.

Been to Reposado multiple times - love it. It can get a bit crowded in there on a busy night, but we always have a great time. I can't comment on the Amaretto sours since I have never ordered one (although why you would get an amaretto sour at a tequila bar is beyond me), but all the drinks I have ever ordered have been fantastic.

That's what you get for ordering an Amaretto Sour. What's wrong with you?
