Sometimes everyone just needs a glass of wine (or four) and a bitching session with their closest gal pal. Whether you've had a rough week at work, a long semester at school, or just a shitty day in general, there is a good chance that a glass of chardonnay and a couple hours with your BFF will totally turn your day around.
This article is for those of you who have been neglecting your social life, and your cocktail bucket list. We have compiled a list of 14 adorable bars that you must check out with your BFF. So yes, I did just give you 14 excuses to get drunk with your closest friend, you're welcome.
1. Miss Things // 1279 Queen St W.
Miss Things has some of the most creative drinks in Toronto. Their decor and strong cocktails will make you forget about the miserable Toronto weather and make you feel you're in the tropics!
2. Bar Reyna // 158 Cumberland St.
Bar Reyna is known for their adorable decor, and for a very good reason. Both their patio and interior is completely Instagram ready, making it the perfect venue for your next girls night out.
3. Piano Piano // 88 Harbord St
Piano Piano is an adorable restaurant with an amazing wine list. Throw in your BFF and what more could you want for a night out in Toronto?!
4. Her Majesty's Pleasure // 556 King St W
Technically Her Majesty's Pleasure is a beauty bar, but that pretty much makes it 50% cooler. Spending a couple hours getting pampered with your BFF while sipping on your favorite cocktail and not a bad way to spend a Sunday.
5. The Porch // 250 Adelaide St W
Ah The Porch, where Toronto basics migrate to for the summer months. Yes, everyone has a picture drinking out of a tiny bucket, but it's for a good reason. The patio has some awesome views, and there is no better way to spend a hot day in Toronto than day drinking on a rooftop.
6. Bar Raval // 505 College St.
Bar Raval is a great place for after work drinks, which we all know are sometimes SO necessary. This place is also crazy beautiful, so be sure to drink in both their cocktails, and the amazing decor.
7. Collete Grand Cafe // 550 Wellington St W
Collete Grand Cafe basically begs you to indulge in a boozy brunch ft. at least 3 mimosas. Please be sure to also take a couple Instagrams, it will be 100% worth it.
8. Cold Tea // 60 Kensington Ave
Cold Tea is the perfect place to bring your friend that's been everywhere, even if she's already been here as well. Cold Tea is great because you can get there early and have a couple causals drinks with good conversation, and as the night progresses it turns into an amazing party!
9. Locals Only // 589 King St W
Okay, I'm not going to pretend that I go to Locals Only to just get a little tipsy. I'm going to Locals Only to get wine drunk with my gal pal, take cute pictures in the bathroom, and pretend I know how to dance while double fisting. Note: Locals Only is not for the weak.
10. Boxcar Social // Mulitple Locations
Boxcar Social makes it okay to order wine while you should probably still be ordering coffee. There is no shame in a little 11 AM chardonnay, or at least not in my eyes.
11. Pray Tell // 383 College St.
Pray Tell is another great spot to bring your bestie. This spot is relatively new to the city, therefore it poses the perfect excuse to drink while exploring a new spot in the city!
12. Figo // 295 Adelaide St W
Figo is aesthetically beautiful, making it the perfect place to take your Instagram obsessed friend (if you can't think of one, that probably means you are one. Sorry). You'll be able to
knock back sip your wine while indulging in pizza and bonding over all the people you both hate!
13. Bellwoods Brewery // 124 Ossington Ave.
Bellwoods Brewery is the perfect watering hole for all beer enthusiasts who are looking to support a local brewery! It's basically like drinking their beer is bettering the city, so you can pat yourself on the back for that one.
14. Patois // 794 Dundas St W
Sadly Patois is currently closed for renovations but will be opening back up ASAP. This adorable spot has some of the tastiest drinks made inside your fruit of choice! Just be sure to ask the staff about them because they are not featured on the menu.
