    TIFF 2012 TIP: Some of the best mixologists on the West Queen West strip work here. One of the best Bourbon sours in town. An amazing bar menu to keep your energy up 'til the wee hours (open to 4) Read more

    Live music, contemporary art, fantastic food & a boutique hotel all in one trendy package. Tip: on a warm night you want to be in the VIP section upstairs- get there early to avoid another lineup.

    This steel foundry from the 1800s has been transformed into an intimate inn boasting views of Lake Ontario. Expect a ping-pong room and restaurant with vintage furniture. Fun and Familiar. Read more

    We went for the easter special. 2 courses for $35 and bottles of wine $25. Everything tasted delicious and the service was great.

    For the cocktails, the art, the ambiance, the clientele, the celebrities, the music, the rooms and the cuisine … nine years later it remains just as relevant. [Eater 38 Member]

    Burger is actually one of the city's best. Sushi is fine. Edamame is so good, huge portion. Good VQA selection by the glass. Desserts are the best kept secret, ESP sticky toffee pudding.

    Cover is $10 after 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Or get here before 10 for dinner and drinks and stay for the dancing!

    Loved the hotel. Very relaxed and cosy and a great part of town. But too expensive to stay for more than a couple of nights

    The Brisket Poutine is the best poutine I've ever had. Had it with a GF from Montreal & she said it was better than Montreal poutine. That's high praise.

    The scones as a start are gorgeous. I got the chicken and waffles after which, while good, did not compare to the scones in tastiness

    Anything Chef Anthony Rose lends his time to is worth tasting. But these days I'm feeling the Fish Tacos. Could be the patio weather. And the Patio.

    The main draw for locals at this boutique 19-room hotel is Drake's Underground — a popular club for dancing and hearing live music.
