The 222 Bar

This Ossington bar comes to us from the vets behind Communist's Daughter and 3 Speed, and serves quirky drinks like pickle martinis, as well as takes on mimosa and French 75's made with Miller High Life.

It's not just comedy you'll find at this bar that recently moved to Kensington Market: they also host events that include everything from open mics and trivia to bingo, vintage markets and karaoke.

Walk in to this Roncesvalles bar (as they don't take reservations) and tuck into a tight selection of snacks like cheese, lupini beans, grilled octopus and breaded mushrooms accompanied by cocktails, wine, beer and cider.

Sharing an Ossington address with La Banane, this secretive new bar goes above and beyond the typical dive with canapes that include beetroot blini and Hokkaido sea urchin, as well as thoughtfully presented high-end cocktails.


Pizza Wine Disco

If you love pizza, wine, and disco, this new hotspot on King West is for you. The high energy club pairs bottle service with a menu of Italian shareables like garlic knots, fritto misto, pizza and pasta. Cocktails have names like Ring My Bell, Diana Ross and Boogie Nights.

Live performance is incorporated into the atmosphere at this Entertainment District bar where drink deals keep things casual along with sliders and pizza for eats.

Tapas, wine and cocktails are now available at this newly transformed Brockton Village space that was a cafe. They also function as a mini-nightclub with lots of regularly scheduled DJs.


Offworld Bar

Escape Earth's atmosphere at this new immersive bar that feels like you've been launched into space. Cocktails such as No Tribble, Warp Bubble, Hivemind, Escape Pod and Launch Pad look like they'd be right at home in a Mos Eisley cantina.

Sing your heart out at this new take on a karaoke bar that brings drinkers and live performers together at a semi-secret, dimly lit location on Dundas West. Not only do they do live piano karaoke, they've also been hosting drag performers.
