Short Turn

Short Turn is a snack bar on Queen West from the same owners of 416 Snack Bar.

Here, co-owners Adrian Ravinsky and Dave Stewart are joined by Taylor Lackie in this latest venture that's located just around the corner on Queen Street from the original 416 location.

Offering a mix of drinks and snacks, the new room is meant to feel like a streetcar ride on a vintage streetcar (the model that was retired from the system in 2019).
