The first thing you’ll read on King Taps’ website is “good people, food, and beer.” Sounds like a recipe for a perfect playoff-watching evening.

King Taps is located right in the heart of the city and has a wide selection of TVs to watch the game on.

The Bottom Line 

This bar is right by Union Station so if you’re looking to come into the city on the train to catch a Toronto Maple Leafs playoff game, this could be your spot.

The Bottom Line had some great deals during the Bud’s playoff run last year so expect a good time and plenty of good and drink options.

Where: The Bottom Line, 22 Front St W


According to Toby’s “Stop by for a quick bite to eat, or come catch the game and order your favourite dishes and drinks!” Say less.

This spot will have playoff games on so head over and pull up a seat.

Score on King 

Score on King is a little more east of downtown if you’re trying to find a spot outside of the central Toronto madness.

This bar/restaurant is known for its amazing Caesars so order up and have fun watching the game.

Where: Score on King, 107 King St E

Dublin Calling

This bar dubs itself “Toronto’s sports headquarters” and will bring all the good vibes when it comes to watching a Leafs playoff game.

The menu here includes a 3L beer tower – does it get any better than that?

Where: Dublin Calling, 250 Adelaide St W

Real Sports

Real Sports typically fills up due to its location in Maple Lead Square and the hundreds of TV options including a 39-foot one right in the centre of the bar.

If you can get in then you’re in for a great time.

Where: Real Sports, 15 York St
