Going to Toronto this fall to visit a very good friend and we're both serious night owls. Any tips about where to go out at night? Both of us would rather go for something authentic than something trendy and both of us are very serious martini lovers.
If you're into cocktails you really need to check out BarChef on Queen Street West at Augusta Ave. It's one of my favourite spots. They use a lot of fresh herbs in the drinks and the menu changes pretty often so you've always got a reason to go back. They also serve some tasty bites if you want a snack to go with the drinks. The atmosphere might be a little pretentious but that's actually what I like about it.
