Bar or pub near Massey Hall

I am going to a concert at Massey Hall and am meeting up with a friend for a drink beforehand. Any suggestions of where to go that's close (within a block or two) of Massey Hall? I want to avoid Yonge St./Eaton Centre if possible. Thanks!

  1. You might try the martini bar at the Pantages Hotel, across the street. Have not tried it but looks like a nice place to go for a drink. Fran's is in the same building if you want something more casual.

    1. Pravda Vodka Bar on Wellington. Not opened Sundays though. They have a great Happy Hour weekdays from 5-7.

      1. I don't think there are many decent options within 2 blocks of Massey Hall.

        Queen & Beaver on Elm has been mentioned in past threads re: good options near Massey Hall. Looks like it's closer to 5 blocks from Massey Hall.

        Also see the Massey Hall threads, that should be visible below this thread. I see 10 Massey Hall threads on my screen.

        1. Now that Duggan's is gone, my pre Massey go to usually one of the Terronis on Victoria or Adelaide.

          1. Beer Bistro is down on King.
