Best Cocktails in Toronto

Recently stopped into The Museum for a pre-dinner cocktail and were delighted with the creativity, ingredients, and service. They have house oak aged spirits (the Sazerac was delicious) and Specials (a tequilla, ginger beer cocktail served in a copper mug that was also excellent). Nice cozy old school atmosphere and the smell of the dinner prep from the kitchen was intoxicating ! A real hit.
Any other suggestions for places with creative bartending and / or classics done right ?
Rooftop looks like a hit.
The Paddock is one of my favorite spots (although it's been a while), but I found the cocktails good, not great.
On a much older thread the Sidecar and Library bar at the RY get favorable mention. Library was good my last visit, any comments on either ?
My test drink is a Whiskey Sour. If they say they use bar mix from a plastic bottle, I order a beer and move on quickly ...
Museum Tavern is excellent. If you are looking for a modern take on cocktails I would suggest trying out barchef as their cocktails are unlike anything served elsewhere.
Spirit House? Best OF in town? Need to give this place a try.
As far as Barchef is concerned, are there consistency issues there? My one visit was really disappointing, so I never bothered to give it another shot. I consistently see strong reviews on the place though so possibly it was an off night/bad bartender?
