The top 8 bars to drink & play Pokemon Go in Toronto

You might spend your days Poke-hunting in Toronto, but when night falls, it's time to get #turnt with your Drowzee squad. But if you want to go out and still catch 'em all, there are plenty of watering holes around the city that spawn lots of Pokemon.

Here's where to drink and play Pokemon Go in Toronto.

Clinton's
Live out your 90s and early 00s dreams by heading to a throwback party at this PokeStop. Trainers have caught Pokemon in the Clinton's back room, so who knows what you'll find on the dance floor?

Bar Neon
Go for the sparkling sangria and stay for the Pokemon. This Bloordale bar is a great place to go if you're looking for a low-key night out, and its patio is now overrun with Pokemon just waiting for you to catch 'em.

The Bar With No Name
If you want to do your own Pokemon pub crawl, head down the street to this establishment that doubles as a gym. Put your Pokemon to the test and celebrate your victories with a few drinks.

Bar Volo
While this Yonge Street bar isn't a PokeStop, a mural right near by is - and it's often a lure too! Grab a beer and a seat outside and play some Pokemon as you spend your night under the patio's twinkly lights.

The Slip
This newly opened lakeside cafe and bar features a huge patio, making it a perfect spot for you to get in on the Harbourfront and Jack Layton Ferry Terminal action without putting down your drink.

Pour House
This Annex-area restaurant and bar is massive, has a good beer selection and is teeming with Pokemon to boot. It's also a gym so head to Dupont and claim it for your team.

Grace O'Malley's
If you're 19 or really feel like amping up the game's nostalgia factor, this Entertainment District-area establishment is a PokeStop, so you're guaranteed to have fun here.

Sneaky Dee's
Nachos and Pokemon go together like peanut and jelly at this College and Bathurst institution. But if you feel like raging, you can also do some dancing and Poke-hunting at Nest next door.
