Guide: 7 of the craziest, most creative cocktail bars in Toronto
Are you sick of the same old 3 bars you’ve been cycling through? Well, maybe it’s time to think about sipping some creative cocktails in Toronto. Lucky for you, we’re thinking the same thing. So we decided to put together a little list of the most creative cocktail bars in the city. None of these places can be considered boring- they’re pushing the limits and forgetting vodka cran ever even existed.
Here are 7 of the most out-of-the-box cocktail bars in Toronto.
This spot promises to challenge the conventional cocktail experience. Their crazy creative creations are more than just drinks, they’re works of art! Head to this spot if you’re looking for something that’s not just a bar, but a capital “E” Experience.
Where: 472 Queen St W
Whether you’re looking to wind down, turn up, or both, this place is the spot for you. They boast tea-infused cocktails that are perfect for a girls night or to catch up over. They also have plenty of tea concoctions without alcohol for the dear sober pal. That’s the tea 😉
Where: 354 Yonge St
Prepare to be spellbound at this magical spot. Literally magic. This bar is Harry Potter inspired and has plenty of wizard drinks, potions, and elixirs. Don’t mind us, we’re just over here sipping on Butterbeer and Polyjuice Potion. Mmmm, shapeshifting.
Where: 1479 Dundas St W
Okay, this spot is so out-of-the-box they don’t even have a cocktail menu. But hear us out! They’ll still get you that crazy cocktail you’re dreaming of. Instead of a menu, guests rely on the expertise of the bartenders to create a perfect customized mix. Just have a little chat and they’ll come up with something made just for you. Wow, we feel so special!

It’s 2020 now, so we’re basically back in the roaring 20s, right? This creative cocktail bar sure thinks so! The cocktails and decor are inspired by the 1920s. Plus, they have live music almost every day of the week! Ready to revisit prohibition for the night?
Where: 1376 Danforth Ave
This place is one of the most unique concepts for a cocktail bar we’ve seen. They’re all about solving mysteries. To even get into the bar you have to decipher a code at the front door. Once you’re in, the cocktail menu is chock full of out-there creations. We recommend the French Toast & Cigarettes, or the Pearl Necklace. Sorry, we’re keeping the ingredients of these crazy mixes a mystery. You’ll just have to go there to find out!
Where: 116 Dundas St W
This is probably our top pick for nights where we want to mix things up. Originally from Vancouver, the Shameful Tiki is hands-down the best place in the city for rum-based drinks. While their volcano bowls are definitely the most visually impressive, we always get a Jungle Bird. Sometimes you just wanna feel like you’re on vacation, right?
Where: 1378 Queen St W
