Ok, so you’ve been chatting with a cutie on Tinder/POF/Coffee Meets Bagel for a little while now, and you want to take it to the next level and meet for a cocktail.
Or maybe you’ve been dating someone for a little while and are looking for a new bar to hit up.
Where are you going to go?
Whether you’re a Toronto native, or new to the city – there are so many bar choices for date night!
Don’t fret, my pets! I’m here to help!
Below, I’m sharing my list of Top 5 Toronto bars to bring a date.
Hair of the Dog is located in The Village, easily accessible from the subway line – and they have two awesome patios. What more could you ask for?
Well, how about delicious Delirium on tap? You’re welcome.
They also do a killer brunch, just saying.
With 60+ bottles of bourbon and rye, 30 rotating regional beers on tap, 75+ carefully selected beer bottle selection, and 2 rotating Ontario/VQA wines on tap – even the pickiest of drinkers will find something they love at Bar Volo.
Bar Volo is located south of Yonge and Bloor, near Yonge and Wellesley – but note that the bar itself can get pretty busy, especially on Monday nights where they have a $5 pint special.
Grab a table, cuddle up close, and chat over craft beer and charcuterie.
Located in the heart of Little Italy, Snakes & Lagers has 19 craft beers on tap and a curated list of board games.
It’s the perfect combination!
Whether it’s a first date, or fourth date – nothing helps ease nervousness and tension like laughter, right?
Playing Guess Who or Battleship will not only have you laughing with your date – but will also leave you feeling nostalgic.
If you’re looking for a bar that takes pride in their cocktails, and serves up something by the name of Sex Panther – look no further than Rush Lane.
Rush Lane is on Queen St. W bar was built, and is run by bartenders who know their stuff.
Plus, on Wednesday nights you can play Super Nintendo! #Winning
Formerly known as Panorama, The One Eighty is located in the Manulife Centre at Bay and Bloor and offers what may possibly be the best views of Toronto.
51 floors high above the city, The One Eighty has both a north facing, and south facing patio to offer the best of both worlds.
Pro tip – grab a seat on the north facing patio and catch the sunset over a bottle of wine – then see if you can head to the south to admire the twinkling Toronto skyline.
Très romantic, très beautful.
