Slamming air hockey pucks and yelling over mid-90s top-40 has a way of making a person hungry. Good thing Little Italy’s Nightowl Toronto keeps the kitchen open late.
The two-floor spot (live music upstairs, a couple of arcade machines below) caters to the student crowd and College Street partiers who want to take a break from $13 vodka sodas with a platter of wings and a drunken go at Big Buck Hunter.
There’s something a bit corporate, a bit clubby about the interior – the neon signs and the mural spelling out the Webster’s definition of “nightowl” in foot-high letters are, maybe, a little too on-the-nose – but when it comes to bar food, its heart is firmly in the right place: meat, dairy and starch, applied liberally.

If Nightowl had a single theme, it’d probably be “adult amusement.” It’s in the same vein as 3030, but with more intimacy. Games that are the most fun with a few drinks – Big Buck Hunter, a Tron pinball table – greet passersby in the front window, luring them in for a boozy ice cream float (the house specialty) and a snack or two. On weekends, there’s live music in the basement bar for extra entertainment.
Hours Daily 6 pm to 2 am.
Access Entrance barrier-free, washrooms in basement.
