Bars and nightlife in St. Lawrence, Old Toronto

Top bars

Cocktail Bar
“A Russian-inspired vodka bar that houses over 80 of the world’s best vodkas. On weekends, Pravda transforms into a bustling nightclub, often home to burlesque dancers, live music or aerialist shows for entertainment. The Soviet-inspired cocktails entice but, for a memorable experience, don a fur stole and follow a staff member into the freezer for a private vodka tasting.”

Beer Bar
“Located in the cellar of a historic building near St Lawrence Market, C’est What has been a Toronto craft beer institution for more than three decades. And there’s good reason for it: a healthy array of board games and billiards, a cozy underground atmosphere perfect for hibernation on winter nights, complete with over 42 taps and 20 bottles of rotating beers, exclusively Canadian with a focus on Ontario. C’est What are the old school purists of the craft beer bars, with a mandate that focuses on single-batch, all natural brewing and fresh and unpasteurized beer. Beyond the beer, they’ve recently switched their liquor rail to entirely Ontario craft for those who prefer something harder.”
