With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, it’s time to start planning out all the bars that you’re going to hit!
It’s on a weekend this year, so no need to worry about dragging yourself into the office the next day.
Here are our top 5 picks for bars in King West:
The bar that took over from the old Grand & Toy at King and Brant comes with top shelf booze, cocktail shots, food trucks eats and a bustling street-side patio.
The Addisons Residence
This clubland oasis just south of King on Wellington feels like one big house party. The bar is divided into separate rooms, like the kitchen, lounge and rec room and you’ll everyone sipping cocktails, playing shuffle board and getting down to live DJs. Don’t miss the huge patio in the back.
Descend the graffiti-clad stairs to this boisterous lower-level bar that spins hip hop and R&B tracks peppered with throwbacks and classic jams. Come hungry as Locals Only serves up snack food like oysters and fried chicken along with Moscow Mules in tin cans.
This Mercer Street hangout is what happens when you combine the aesthetics of a nightclub, bar and craft beer destination. Expect a stellar lineup of brews, hip hop at max volume and fun, loose crowds out to party.
This faux Irish bar has all the watering hole essentials including beer, whisky, at least a dozen TVs and seating for large groups. In summer there’s a sweet patio.
