Explore these Toronto Pubs For a Good Pint

Looking to grab a drink in a laidback and friendly spot? Maybe looking for a bartender who will remember your name? In Toronto, more than anywhere else in the world (with the possible exception of Dublin), pubs are sacred. 

A trip to the 6ix isn't complete without a visit to one of Toronto's countless neighbourhood pubs — pints, pub fare and friendly locals included. From pubs styled after their counterparts in the UK and Ireland to neighbourhood pubs that are ultra local in menu and atmosphere, from more upscale pares to budget-friendly bites, there are pubs in Toronto for every fare and flavour, and for every occasion. 

There’s even one pub — The Wheatsheaf Tavern at King and Bathurst — that’s been pouring beers since 1849, while still others have been in operation for over a century (the Maple Leaf Tavern) or even more (the Black Bull).

So next time you’re in the mood to grab a brew in a casual spot, be sure to hit up these pubs first. You won’t be disappointed. 

Toronto’s nightlife scene is as varied as the crowd it attracts. From Vegas-style lounges to after-hours nightclubs to relaxed sports bars, there are options to suit every mood.
