890 College, 416-538-4043
VIBE At this small bar on the outskirts of the College strip, expect to hear hiphop, R&B, Latin and reggae on weekends and live bands and a karaoke night weekdays. The crowd is younger and rougher than what you'd see a few blocks east, and it seems to attract more locals than 905ers. There's a licensed patio off the side of the building for smoking.
VALUE Drinks are pretty cheap, and there's no cover. Not really the kind of place that would impress a date, but at least you won't go broke.
BATHROOMS The washrooms are smallish and not particularly clean. You won't run away screaming, but you won't be jumping for joy either.
LINEUP This isn't the kind of place that people line up to get into, and since there's no cover, it's extremely unlikely that you'd ever have to wait in line.
