Toronto to get its first lawn games themed bar

Toronto already knows how to make the most of our long winters. Over the last few years, we've seen an influx of indoor recreational activities thrive. Soon to join our scene of board game cafes, ping pong bars, axe throwing leagues, and escapes rooms, is this novel concept: Track & Field, Toronto's first lawn games bar.

It's a new venture from owners Dustin Keating (Montauk), Nickie Minshall (a former publicist), and Joshua Leblanc (former manager at Montauk), who have taken over the address of former subterranean dance club The Cave (860 College St.) and are converting the 5,000 square foot basement into a licensed rec room, promising bocce ball, deck shuffleboard, and crokinole boards (for sit-down gamers) on offer free of charge.

Casual cocktails on tap and plenty of beer will be the money makers at this competition-friendly destination, and expect the atmosphere to emit the pride and joy of its owners who are in the process now of lovingly handcrafting every light fixture, table, lane and bench in advance of a spring opening.
