If you’re familiar with Sugo’s delicious Italian cuisine (and you’re a fan) then you’ll want to check out Bar Sugo. Located just steps away from the famous Toronto restaurant, Bar Sugo is a full-service restaurant that serves the same, deliciously authentic Italian American cuisine.

When: Tuesday to Saturday from 5 PM to 11 PM
Where: 1279 Bloor Street W

Bar Habana

Tucked away in the very back of Toronto’s La Cubana on Ossington is the newest ‘speakeasy-ish’ spot, Bar Habana. Though they did open up in Leslieville, Bar Habana made the hard decision to move and recreate the elevated experience in the West. Stop by for mouthwatering Cuban sandwiches, Cuban-inspired cocktails, and the best vibes.

When: Open late.
Where: 92 Ossington Avenue
