Spring is coming, which means patio season is about to go into full BLOOM. There are tons of places in the city to find a nice drink. Whether it's after work, for a date, or just for catching up with friends - the options truly are limitless.
However, are you looking to save a few bucks but still want to have a good time? I've put together a list of the BEST drink options in the city that are not only tasty but also CHEAP!
See below for the full list and here's to a good time!
Bar With No Name
Bar With No Name is located in West end and offers some of the best drink specials in the city! From $12 pitchers of Mill St. to $3.50 bottles, you really can't go wrong. Not a beer drinker? That's okay their cocktail list is the bomb and they have cider on tap, too!
Earls King Street
Omg. Okay, I used to work at Earls as a server and that is when I first fell in love with their extensive drink specials and happy hour food deals that you HAVE to take advantage of. Earls features $5 1.5oz Margaritas every Monday and on weekends they offer $5 Mimosas during brunch hours. Literally, you cannot go wrong.
Of all of the places to visit on this list, I put JOEY at the top. Not only is their food AH-mazing (I highly suggest the Gyozas), they also have incredible drink specials - especially during Happy Hour. They serve their famous Real Peach Bellini (photographed above) for $4.50 every day from 3pm-6pm and 9pm-close. In addition to this, they also have their house wines for $5.50 for 6oz. Don't miss out!
Madison Avenue Pub
Madison Avenue Pub is located in the Annex and has some of the best drink options this Spring! On Saturdays, they serve up $4 high-balls from 3pm-10pm and always have tons of beer specials including 30% off pitchers on Mondays.
Crocodile Rock has been operating for more than 20 years and features $3 drinks every Wednesday and Friday...ALL night long! It's located right in the heart of the Entertainment District and has a HUGE rooftop patio that you and your friends can enjoy from all spring and summer.
McSorley's Saloon & Grill
McSorley's Wonderful Saloon & Grill is a lively place located in Leaside and offers great outdoor seating, great pub food, and margaritas! Every Saturday you can treat yourself to delicious 2oz Margaritas for $8 and they also have great deals on tacos and fajitas that day as well! Make sure you take advantage!
The Pour House
The Pour House is located in the Annex and features phenomenal deals on a range of drinks! Every Wednesday, they offer half-price wine! Or, if you're not down for a whole bottle they also have $6 pours.
This spring and summer you can catch me at the Sangria Lounge in Roncesvalles sipping on a $15 pitcher of sangria! What makes this place super cool is that they offer different sangrias such as a white wine base, red wine base, preach base, and even a lime base! If you aren't feeling a whole pitcher they also have it available by the glass for $5.50.
Cactus Club Cafe
Cactus Clube Cafe at First Canadian Place in Downtown Toronto is definitely one of the most popular places for people to grab a drink after work or just hang out with friends. However, a lot of people associate Cactus Club with being on the pricey side, when in fact they have amazing drink specials almost every day of the week! For instance, every day from 2pm-5pm or 10pm-close, you can enjoy a Sunset Soda for $5! This is my favourite drink from there and consists of soda water, vodka, and bellini slush.
Bistro 422 is located on College Street and features 60oz pitchers of sangria for under $13...plus it's served with a straw. If sangria isn't your thing, they also offer 32oz cocktails for the same price. Can it get any better than that?
The Lab (AKA the Labyrinth), is located in the Bloor-Annex area and features incredible drink deals such as a $4 bar rail from Monday-Thursday! In addition, they also have a lively patio scene that I'd highly suggest you check out when the sun is shining!
The Done Right Inn
The Done Right Inn is located on Queen St. right beside Trinity Bellwoods Park and offers a gorgeous patio (that is dog-friendly) and a pint for $6! If you're like me and don't like sipping on beer then you can enjoy an array of mixed drinks for the same price!
