The Esplanade Bier Market 58 the Esplanade, 416-862-7575
VIBE This upscale beer hall has a large selection of imported beers on tap. Live cover bands and mainstream DJs play Thursday to Saturday to an older crowd. It feels kind of like a fancy version of a small-town bar.
VALUE There's no cover, but drinks aren't cheap. Mind you, if you're looking for obscure foreign beers, you're probably not expecting bargain-basement prices.
BATHROOMS The etched glass doors on the bathrooms look quite nice (and get bonus points for making it easy to tell the men's from the women's). Inside, the bathrooms are duller and more institutional-looking but still reasonably clean.
DANCING OR CHILLING It's not really a dance club, but a small dance floor in front of the stage gets some use. Lots of room for lounging and relaxing.
