Spotted on Bloor just west of Dovercourt, newly minted Wise Bar (1007 Bloor West) serves craft brews to the Bloorcourt 'hood. I'm ecstatic to have a promising new local in an area almost bereft of bars. Update to follow.
Studio opens its doors
After a long, hard battle with licensing, Studio Bar (824 Dundas West, 416-815-7823, facebook.com/StudioBarToronto) is now officially open. The ambitious 3,000-square-foot space functions by night as a restaurant, bar and music venue for bands and DJs and by day as a café and consignment store for locally prepared indie foodstuffs.
