A good old dose of nostalgia is coming your way thanks to one Toronto bar. Remember back in the day, before streaming was at our fingertips and watching a movie meant trotting down to the video store and picking up a VHS? Yeah, we barely remember either, it was so so long ago. But if you want to feel like you’ve stepped right into a time machine, you can hit up Farside Toronto.
This Toronto spot is giving us a blast from the past with a brand new VHS rental membership service. Normally, Farside Bar is a place to hit up for all the different types of beer you could imagine. But thanks to the pandemic, they’ve had to do a little rethinking.

Their collection of VHS tapes includes tons of old and out-of-the-box titles you won’t find in your regular online streaming session. They’ve even got tapes recorded directly from television sets, so your rental will come complete with commercials from the 80s.
Don’t have the equipment to run a VHS anymore? They’ve got that covered too. Every rental comes with a VCR and everything you need to connect it to your TV. Plus, 3 movies you get to keep for 7 nights. Oh, and they’ll even throw in a pint of Ed’s Real Scoop Ice Cream if you ask nicely.
So swing by Farside Toronto for a blast from the past. A VHS movie night sounds like a fabulous way to spend an evening in quarantine.
