VIBE A charming little country bar in a basement at Dundas and Ossington. Most nights you can hear live bands playing various forms of roots music, along with the occasional DJ also playing something with a bit of twang. The crowd is younger than you might expect, the atmosphere relaxed and friendly.

PAST LIFE Last known as Club Trinport, a Trinidadian/Portuguese venture that hosted everything from metal concerts to indie dance parties until it went under last year. Picture a similar layout, but with a saloon feel.

VALUE A pint of domestic beer will run you $5, and there’s generally no cover except for the occasional special event.

CAN YOU DANCE? If you’re looking for a hoedown, there is a small area in front of the stage that seems designated for dancing.
