Dundas West -- new place - used to be the Metal Bar

  • 5

Something new and nice looking is going in on Dundas West, west of dovercourt, where the Metal Bar used to be. Anyone have any gossip? It is a tricky location, and they are really making a big change, at least to the exterior! I am so curious!

  1. I work around there, but can't seem to recall seeing anything going on. North or south side of the street?

      South side. It is in the basement. It was a club for about 3 weeks in the winter, after the demise of 'The Metal Bar' -- the windows were covered in a huge picture of people drinking that looked like it was from a bacardi ad. I saw one of the people from restaurant makeover (a contractor or something like that) hauling in a big refrigeration unit a few days ago.

    2. How I miss the metal bar where it would take 10 minutes to get a can of beer and they'd run out of booze by 11PM. The space looked like it used to be a Portuguese nightclub before it became the metal bar. Will be interesting to see what goes in!

        Was it not a portuguese steak house or something...? Perhaps South American???
