It's hard work for a writer, getting a "best bar" assignment. Even though it has been a struggle, I did manage to scope out everything from watering holes to high end establishments that require the right shoes (and no, Toms don't make the cut). Drink by drink, I established what makes a bar unforgettable in Toronto. Then I promptly forgot what I was writing about.
Bar-goers can have it all in cosmopolitan Toronto. Whether it is the drink that puts hair on your chest, or the people who make you forget about your 9 to 5, the right bar can be a hub of community and transformation. Plus, most bars have booze, which many Canadians tend to enjoy. (And if not, many of these places make one hell of a mocktail.)
If you like your bars to look like works of art, look no further than Bar Raval. you like to go to somewhere with live music and lots of (good) tequila, try out the Reposado Tequila Bar Toronto.
There is no such thing as one-size-fits-all people, so why shouldn't our bars be as unique as we are? Whether you love a laid-back lounge or a dive bar, we don't judge.
Take a swig of what the city has to offer.
