Any good pubs in Queen W area?

I have a meeting late tomorrow night in queen w area (around the Drake) and was wondering if there were either any good (not sketchy) pubs or maybe italian restaurants in the area (other than the Drake). Thanks in advance!

  1. Not a pub per se but the Beaconsfield is nearby. The menu certain offers some pubby items -

    1. There is also The Beaver, a few doors east (or maybe west, in between the Drake and Gladstone). It isn't a pub but a casual resto where you can have a meal and pint. And there is a tiny pub in the Gladstone, though it'll probably be too busy late at night.

      Further west, the other side of the train track, is the Cadillac Lounge. Decent pub food, nothing special food wise, but usually live music that is usually good. Not sketchy, just a decent place for a pint and snack and some tunes.

          If you're going as far west as the Caddy, Rhino across the street has an awesome beer selection.
