TED'S COLLISION AND BODY REPAIR 573 College, 416-530-7569 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE A favourite of those who wouldn't be caught dead in any of the surrounding martini lounges. Its sister bar and live music venue, Ted's Wrecking Yard, has been closed for several years, but Ted's Collision is still holding it down as one of the last dark 'n 'dirty rock 'n' roll bars on the College strip. The music is usually whatever CD the staff feel like listening to, but on rare occasions you might catch a band.
PATIO ACTION There's a fairly large rear patio with plenty of seating and a pleasant chill vibe.
BATHROOMS Definitely not glamorous or even particularly clean, but at least they were fully functional and far from disgusting during test visits.
CAN YOU DANCE? You could, but people would probably look at you strange, and you'd be much more likely to get cut off at the bar.
