Saturday Afternoon Martinis

I'm supposed to meet a friend tomorrow (Saturday) at 4 for drinks, and as I'm the city mouse have been asked to find a place. But I'm at a bit of a loss as I rarely go out for more than a beer these days, and further anywhere that comes to mind for martinis opens later in the evening.

Any suggestions? I'm looking for either Danforth or Yorkville, with not outrageously priced drinks (e.g. is $10 for a martini too much to ask??), and has to be open by 4pm.

Thanks in advance!

  1. How about Bar Mercurio at Bloor and St George? They make a nice classic Martini.

      Mercurio, unfortunately, doesn't open til 5:30 on Saturdays.

        Darn! Thanks for the advisory, Jamie.

    2. What about Trapezzi on the Danforth? Opens at 4 on Saturday and I think the martinis are about $10 although it doesn't say on their site -

      1. Cafe Nervosa at Bellair & Yorkville...two patios...TIFF buzz...Marimba!

        1. Wish at Yonge and Charles? Great 'martini' menu in a nice Miami-minimal kind of way. A little out of Yorkville though.

          Cafe Nervosa is a great casual spot anytime though too!
