A beautiful luxurious bar with the most friendly staff and some of the best bartenders in the city. The bar experience was amazing and the menu-less offerings were exactly what I was in the mood for. I love how the place feels like you're in an upscale train car. If you're in the mood for an elevated cocktail experience, come take a ride in the C-Suite!

Financial District
About the restaurant
The Loose Moose is a lively bar in downtown Toronto favoured by locals and out-of-towners since 1989. Their fondness may have something to do with its beer selection. After all, with over 65 varieties on tap, repeat visits are kind of a given, especially for lovers of Canadian craft. Beer isn't the only thing we have to brag about. With inventive plates, generous portions and the cleanest taps in the city, this is a bar you’ll likely come back to — plan or no plan.

Had a chance to try their new brunch and we were both very impressed! Some of the best brunch food we’ve had in Toronto in quite a while! On top of that the brunch drinks were awesome (as usual)!

We had a lovely evening at Qué Rico. The restaurant is cute, and the patio is so lovely, with a ton of shade. The service was excellent, with very friendly and attentive staff. The food was great, we tried several dishes and they were all tasty. We loved that we could try different types of Latin American food in one space (always love every kind of empanada I can have). Cocktails were also delicious. The food was more than reasonable for the quality and amount.
