Whippoorwill Tavern

Toronto's popular Whippoorwill Tavern is no more

The Whippoorwill Tavern in Bloordale is no more. The popular restaurant and watering hole at Bloor and Landsdowne closed earlier this summer, much to the chagrin of its neighbours.

However, owners Shawn Creamer and Tyler Cunningham decided to let the place go in order to spend more time with their respective families.

"Tyler Cunningham (my business partner and chef) and I both have young families that we felt weren't getting as much of our time as we wanted them to have," Creamers tells us via email. Along with running the Whippoorwill and the Dakota Tavern, he's also behind the Hayloft Dancehall in Prince Edward County.

Another team is opening a restaurant in the Whippoorwill spot. Creamer says the neighbourhood will probably be happy with it, but he wouldn't reveal anything else about it.
