      Yep... second JennaBean's rec for Q&B.

      I haven't been to PJ O'Brien in a long time, but it might be another non-Firkin option.

        Beer Bistro has a good beer list but the food is meh and it is LOUD. Conversation can be very difficult at times.

          It's also not what I would call an "authentic pub".

          I agree with the other posters on Q&B
          If you want to stay in the downtown core, PJ OBriens or Irish Embassy would be my suggestions (Irish can get very loud - just FYI)

          Irish Embassy
          49 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5E, CA

            Sin & Redemption - not really an authentic pub per say, but has a great vibe
