Can I bring my wines to JK Wine Bar?

If the wine that I want to bring is not there in JK Wine Bar, is it possible to do?

I searched for the fine restaurants of BYOW, but couldn't find where I like.

  1. Unfortunately, because of license, you cant bring your wine to a place that sells some.

      1. BYOW has been legal in Ontario since 2005, for restaurants that choose to take part, and I imagine that all of these are licensed and therefore also sell wine.

        According to these sites I found on Google, JKWB allows BYOW and their corkage fee is $25:

        1. Thanks, Guys....
          $25 per bottle doesn't look so bad..

          1. Actually, it's now $30.

            Not sure what Frenchie was talking about!

              Sorry! It's illegal in Quebec, so I actually assumed - wrongly - that it was also in Ontario.

                You could, but why would you?
                They're a wine bar, with a fantastic wine program that focuses on undercelebrated, less expensive wines.
