Hush Hush is hidden behind a sparse convenience store setup in the Junction. Its speakeasy nature references its neighbourhood's historically dry past.

The bar transforms what was formerly Shamone. Enter into a bare room stocked with candy bars and the like, and continue to a freezer door at the back (complete with plastic curtains) to get to the bar space.

Through this door, lights dim, ceilings soar and massive genuine vintage neon pieces glow.

The neon is actually for sale through Metropolis Living, fetching prices in the tens of thousands of dollars.

When it comes to food here, what you see at the front is what you get, offerings limited to items like patties ($2.50) in beef, chicken or veggie varieties. However, all snacks are available all night long.

Provided by Tinnel's, you can also get them in coco bread for an additional $2 and have yourself a mighty affordable bar snack.

Candy is even more affordable at one or two bucks, with a pretty wide variety of options ranging from gum to Airheads to candy bars like Snickers.

Chili dogs top out as the most expensive item at $5, and you can add "shitty cheese" for an extra dollar. Despite the bare bones and even derogatory description, the dogs themselves are solid and the gooey cheese and thick jalapeno slices bring in that satisfying 7-11 feel.

Signature cocktails are $15 across the board and are all named for local area streets.

The Henrietta St. Cocktail combines Botanist gin, St-Germain elderflower liqueur, lemon juice and cinnamon syrup for an easy-drinking but still boozy and flavourful beverage.

The Indian Grove Negroni subs out mezcal for gin for a bit of a winterized take on this cocktail with a smoky edge. Campari, Dillon's vermouth and cedar cherry bark bitters round everything out, a serrano chili and citrus peel garnishing.

A Jackson Margarita splits the difference with both Tromba tequila and mezcal and adds egg white for a heavier feel to match a colder season. Other than that, it's got jalapeno syrup, lime juice and a Tajin rim.

While I can't afford the awesome neon piece that dominate this speakeasy, I know I can always come back to try the dollar-fifty chicken and cheese taquitos.
