late night romance

cabernet05 Jan 5, 2009 08:29 AM

I'm looking for something open till around midnight-1am, price point flexible. I heard about Caren's in another thread and I really like the idea, but I'm not sure if its the best date place. Any recommendations?

    I don't know if you're into hotel bars, but I think the Four Seasons or the Park Hyatt Roof bar are kinda romantic spots for a late night rendezvous.

    I also think Caren's would be a great date place.

      Thanks for the advice everyone! I guess I should've tried to be more clear...What I was basically looking for was a place open past 10pm, conducive to conversation and of course, solid food/

      Now just deciding between Harbord and Caren's... I have to leave for a work assignment for a few weeks or else I would have just done both :(

        7 west might be your place....Interesting scene, with dim lights and open 24 hours.

          Yeah, except the food is horrid. Drinks only.

      Not sure if it's exactly what you have in mind, but 7 West is open 24 hours. Food's good but not great. It's casual, but in a dim/candlelit/romantic kind of way.

        Black Hoof on Dundas West and Harbord Room on, uh, Harbord. Kitchens open till 2 am most nights. Small and cozy, a bit scene-ish.

          could just be me but the name "black hoof" just does not exude romance :-) even though I hear the place is great..

            forget about the name, I highly recommend it as a late night rendevous.

            Although both harboard room and black hoof tend to be chef hangouts during these hours. Depends if you're into that or not.....
