Your favourite cafe/bar is now a store
If you live around Christie Pits or Dundas West, you’ve probably visited (and fallen in love with) the laid-back vibe of Northwood and its sister bar, Northern Belle. (Double that likelihood if you spend a lot of time with your laptop in coffee shops – hello, beer and Wifi.)
Now, you’ll be able to bring the magic home courtesy of a brand new companion gift shop, Northwood General, which opened across the street from Northwood this weekend (just in time to snag some of your holiday dough).
The team behind the shop promises “pantry items, clothing, apothecary, coffee and cocktail things, books, jewellery, accessories, and more.” A lot of the products will be familiar to those who know indie Toronto design: Tuck Shop Trading Co. hats (at this point, if you don’t own one, you get banished to Oakville), Stay Home Club T-shirts, and Smitten Kitten hotel key tags. To check it all out for yourself, pop in at 800 Bloor West.
