Calling all lovers and lonely hearts! A Valentine’s Day bar is opening in Toronto this week and locals of all relationship statuses are invited to join the fun.

The pop-up experience is called Once Upon a Time and it is said to be Toronto’s first Valentine’s Day-themed bar.

The organizers told Curiocity in an email that the cocktail menu will feature something for everyone, including “single individuals, friends, and those in relationships.”

The specially curated cocktails will be Valentine’s themed, and “each drink has an inspiration associated with it.”

With drink names like Summer Love, Our First Kiss, Ghosted, and Friends with Benefits, these creative cocktails are sure to delight your tastebuds.

On the menu, each cocktail is accompanied by a thoughtful note about what it represents.

You’ll get to pair your beverages with a variety of snacks, including a cheeseboard, macarons, and empanadas.

The bar will also be interactive. It will feature a “wall of love and heartbreak,” where visitors can scribble their thoughts about love and heartbreak.

Once Upon a Time opens to the public this Thursday, February 2nd, and will remain open a few days after Valentine’s Day.

And after you’ve gotten your fair share of hearts and roses, you can head over to the fun anti-Valentine’s Day events in Toronto this month.

Love is in the air, friends!
