I am headed to Toronto for business tomorrow and will be there through the weekend. (Of course the weekend that John and Wai won’t even be in town so no chance I run into them haha.)
I’m staying right downtown and would love any recommendations people might have. Looking for good bars and restaurants to check out or anything that could be fun. A bonus if anyone knows of a place that I can watch Wrestlemania as I will be missing out on watching with my usual group of friends.
Thanks Alex! I’m probably thinking more casual than super upscale. Sports bars, steakhouses, anything along those lines all sound good to me. I’d like to check out some unique local spots. I do a good bit of traveling for work so I always try to at least see a couple unique places each city I visit.
Cherry St. Bar and Grill is really good eating. Two dt locations, I’ve only been to the one on Cherry St, bit pricey but laid back place, great food, clean taps, friendly staff. If you spend $30 on food you won’t leave hungry. Near to the Distillery District so you can walk there if you want a change of pace. Ritual Nightclub is nearby, they seem to be doing things. Working nearby and getting off late (1am-2am) there always seems to be some kind of techno party thing in this area on the weekends but I like to use my time off for sleeping so I couldn’t really tell you much about that.
Bar Raval and/or Isabel (highly recommended and trendy)
Real sports bar (biggest and best sports bar in the city but may be packed if Leafs/Raps are playing)
Piano piano (Italian)
Chubby’s Jamaican (super casual but amazing food)
Paris Paris (nice bar - trendy non sports)
Rec Room (sports bar and arcade)
Striker Sports bar (plays WWE I think as well)
The Ballroom (massive sports area with TV screens and can play ping pong etc)
Hope that helps somewhat! ASk if any other questions and enjoy your stay in the 6ix
