The Libertine

Posted by Liora Ipsum / Profiled on August 19, 2013 / review policy

The Libertine TorontoThe Libertine is an underground speakeasy-style lounge operating from under a blinking tarot reader sign on Dundas West at Rusholme. Co-owned by Byron Dill and Forrest Kendlbacher, the pair wanted to recreate a little Prohibition-era glamour with a dash occult and old-time carnival appeal. Deep colours, dim lighting, a stuffed peacock, and sculptural, mythological themed art work from Christy Langer do the trick.

Libertine TorontoDescending the stairs, there's a fortune teller performing readings behind a beaded curtain. Once inside, a long bar lines one wall, while high top counters streak down the centre and crescent shaped banquets, upholstered in tufted leather line the opposing wall.

Libertine Bar TorontoThe bar majors in strong drinks and carefully crafted cocktails like the Baudelaire ($12) blended with Amaro, Grand Marnier, gin and Campari. Bubbly served in champagne coupe is equally appropriate.
