I am planning dinner at zucca and would like to meet for drinks somewhere prior. Rarely venture this far north so suggestions would be appreciated.

    Coquine has a nice bar area that I really like for drinks. Just a block or so South of Zucca on the East side of Yonge.

      Just don't make the mistake of eating at Coquine. Drinks are good, though, at the bar. A very convivial vibe.

        I did say that it liked it for drinks. I just forgot to include the word "only". :)

          the keg on the south east side of yonge and eglinton (on yonge) has a nice bar...again, don't make the mistake of eating there but the drinks are good & the bar area is lovely.

            The Keg is very 20ish lounge-y. I'm not ancient, but I find it a bit too thumpy thumpy for drinks.Coquine is nice for drinks only to a certain point, after which is becomes too crowded, and the people are packed in fairly closely. Definitely don't go to Coquine after 10 pm. The 'hood is definitely bereft of decent places to have a quiet drink.

              What about sitting at the bar at iL Sogno? Or if you are looking for something more casual then there is always St Louis. Otherwise, I think Quince is considered a wine bar. I also like Coquine.

              I hope you like Zucca.

                Il Sogno would depend on the size of the party. That place is pretty teensy weensy.

        Incidentally, I have the same request but for drinks post-dinner (around 11:30pm) for a large-ish group of mid-late 20 year olds. Since it's similar to OP's request didn't want to start a new thread. Not looking for a loud clubby atmosphere, but nor do we want something very silent where we'd feel out of place. Thanks in advance!
