    Stones Place

    1255 Queen W, Toronto, Ontario

    Jerry Stone’s bar is heavily decked in 40-odd years’ worth of obsessively stockpiled Rolling Stones memorabilia. Decidedly less polished and reserved than Parkdale’s trendier spots, it still draws crowds that spill onto Queen West on weekends. A near-dive party bar where the liquor flows freely, encouraging people to dance their asses off all night, it’s a favourite of weekend warriors and occasional revellers celebrating birthdays, holidays and bachelorettes. Expect to line up and pay cover on weekends.

    The Lockhart

    1479 Dundas W, Toronto, Ontario M6J 1Y8

    Apparently, Harry Potter is a major millennial obsession. Why else would a small, otherwise unremarkable bar intended as a soft homage to J.K. Rowlings’ bestselling children’s novels have lineups almost every night?  

    Young west-enders sip and snack in the diffuse light of a heart-shaped neon sign that quotes the last line of the final book: “All was well.” Cocktails made behind a bar labelled Potions & Elixirs stocked with mysterious Mason jars are mild plays on classic drinks – the Señora Bowski is a margarita with infused tequila and bitters, the Tinworth Iced Tea is not far from a Long Island, and the Shacklebolt is a spiced Dark & Stormy – with some surprises tossed in. (Jalapeño Death Shot, anyone?) No butter beer has been spotted to date.

    Hours Tuesday to Sunday 5 pm till late.

    Access Small step up at the entrance, washrooms on main floor.
