It’s a tiny hole in Leslieville along Queen Street East that holds a few dozen people at capacity and doesn’t really serve any food beyond what is legally required to serve alcohol.
Small pot light candles in tiny mason jars on top of solid wood tables and benches provided a calm ambiance, although the fresh paint smell did not.
Advertised mainly as a beer place they only had half a dozen on tap and a page of bottles. As a non-beer drinker, I appreciated the classic cocktail menu, although glancing at the bar, they didn’t have much of a whisky selection.
I ordered ‘The Hitch’ off the cocktail menu which was just a double scotch soda with a lemon twist. They get points for using Johnnie Walker Black, Hitchens’ favourite. (although my Hitchens cocktail was better)
