Twenty is a casual fine dining wine bar located Downtown St. Catharines, just steps away from the Preforming Arts Centre. We have a small intimate place with a relaxed vibe and a unique menu that includes cocktails, beer, and wine. Our food menu is designed to share, but can also be enjoyed as an al la carte dinner.

Wonderful easy small meal before the movie at The Film House. Our waitress was awesome and no rushing us to leave so we could linger. Perfect!

About the restaurant
Reservations are open for dinner only, 9am-4pm is walk ins only.

What’s in the name you ask? We don’t really know, other than the fact that it has a good ring to it.

Nothing really about this place makes much sense. Are we a butcher shop or a restaurant? Are we a butcher shop inside of a restaurant? Or a restaurant inside of a butcher shop?

In our spare time we like to build fires and cook food over wood, you can hire us to do that. We make all of our own charcuterie in house, and we’re determined to get better at that everyday.

How do two concepts operate together in harmony? We don’t really know yet, but we will work at it ‘til it’s seamless. One thing we do know, all of the meat served and sold between these four walls is strictly derived from whole animals butchered in-house, sourced from happy places.

About the restaurant
People are going to spell our name wrong, and they’re going to question the choice. Simplicity applies to all things, and burgers are not an exception. We get right to the point at HAMBRGR. We give our guests the perfect combination of locally sourced ingredients, a wide selection of craft beer, culinary artistry, and of course, one of the most memorable experiences one can muster in the enriching restaurant culture sweeping over the city.
