Suggestions for single girls' night out
I would appreciate any suggestions for restaurants with great food that can be eaten at the bar...preferably with other singles (ie. guys!) in their 30s and 40s. We've been to Drake 150 quite a bit and are looking for somewhere new (and slighly less Bay St, though we all work downtown).
The Emerson (Brockton Village)
Ceili Cottage (Leslieville)
Brooklyn Tavern (Leslieville)
Harbord Room (Annex)
Queen and Beaver (Bay and Elm)
The Oxley (Yorkville)
The Saint on Ossington is always packed with men at the bar seats on Thurs/Fri/Sat nights and the crowd is slightly older than the rest of the strip. One of my fav casual places in the city.
I have been to County east side once, early spring this year.
Crowd wise, I still prefer the west side (yes, I do have a west side bias). I love the intimacy of the bar at Queen W, and I find the clientele more "open" to chats across table/bar.
This being said, I did love the bartender on the East side, and they have a nicer patio than Queen W.
Adding another venue to the list:
People Eatery on Spadina. Love the food and atmosphere.
