  1. Hi Connoisseur,

    On the north side of Highway 7, just west of the 404 is a huge plaza with many different options for bars restaurants. Super casual bars include The Honest Lawyer, Fox and the Fiddle and Jack Astors. There are also tons of restaurant/bars like Nava, Marlowes, Moxies, Boston Pizza, the Keg. I'm forgetting a ton of other places too. The good thing about going there is the short distance between everything. If one place isn't happening you can always try the next place....

    The actual address for the plaza is: 125 York Blvd
    Richmond Hill, ON L4B

    Hope that helps.

    1. There are tons of places there, but unfortunately they're almost exclusively chains. Depends really on what specifically you want (quiet to talk, or clubby) and price range. Here are a few that pop into mind:

      - Alice Fazooli's: there's a separate bar area with casual couches
      - The Keg: uhm, well, it's the Keg, enough said :)
      - Baton Rouge: see comment above
      - Brix: haven't been there in a long time, but recall it having a nice atmosphere, decent food and a decent wine list. Nothing special really, but maybe what you're looking for
