Cabana Pool Bar Opening Soon

Was watching BT this morning and saw the opening of Cabana Pool Bar. It's another addition to the family of O&B restaurants. I was wondering if anyone was going to the opening this weekend and what your thoughts are on the new place?

It looks like a nice place with a South Beach vibe. The food ranges from $10-$40 and they offer sushi by Edo starting at $12 for a maki roll.

        Douchefest (just like any INK venue).

    1. I think it is actually this - Cabana Pool Bar to bring a taste of Miami, Las Vegas and southern France to Toronto
      Charles Khabouth’s Cabana opens at Polson Pier on June 15 with design by Alessandro Munge and food by Jamie Meireles

      It is INK not O&B.

        INK venue, O&B food. I agree with squirms. Sounds vaguely douchey. Last time I looked, the French Riviera wasn't in an industrial park.

          And that menu is waaaay off the mark for poolside dining.

            how do you figure? its not like they serve french fries. i find "SEXY FRIES" very much poolside.

              Whenever I'm poolside, I think *damn* I could go for a grilled cheese sandwich. Sushi in the sunshine (say THAT after some sake) is such a bad idea. Bad, bad, bad.

        2. I think it's a great idea (if we get good weather).

          But I'm leery that it'll turn into a clubland-905-kid hangout.

          1. If you are interesting in just checking it out they are doing an "open house" type thing on Saturday, free admission after a certain time.

            Also, you may have seen banners for the "Red Bull" solstice here on CH. That event is also happening at this new venue next Friday night and it is free as well.

            I hope this turns into a great destination/venue. I am not expecting much out of it but since it won't be a huge season I hope they can make it profitable. I am guessing there will be a lot of corporate events here as time goes on.

            1. You're kidding, right? Saw it too and damn near fell out of bed laughing.watching BT. Looks like an outdoor sleazoid jiggle bar.
