The year has almost come to an end, which means you need to work on all you bucket lists, to-do lists, and ancient new year's resolutions from 2016. Our city underwent a lot of changes in 2016, and our bar scene was no exception to that!
New places popped up all around the city this year, and we couldn't be more excited to share a few of them with you. For those of you who are looking to add a few new places to grab a cold one this holiday season, you're in luck! I have compiled a list of 9 new bars that came to our city in 2016, and it is now your mission to visit them all!
Let us know which one is your favourite, cheers!
1. Baro // 485 King West
Baro is a beautiful new spot on the West end, that has quickly become a favourite for many Torontonians. Between their tasty cocktails, delicious food, and adorable decor, it's hard not to fall in love with Baro!
2. Good Game // 2097 Yonge St
Good Game is every gamer's ideal place to spend a Friday evening. For those of you who are looking to geek out a little over World of War Craft themed cocktails while playing your favourite game, this is the place you need to go!

El Rey is an awesome new addition to Kensington Market, and makes for the perfect first date spot! They have a relaxed and casual vibe, with extremely tasty cocktails and appetizers!

The Dime is the perfect place to make bad decisions. Whether you're looking to get a little too tipsy on a weeknight or grab a quick bite before a concert, this is your spot! P.S. the staff are also super awesome and friendly!
