12-HOUR DAY
The Gabardine

372 Bay St., 647-352-3211

Amid the Financial District’s hustle, The Gabardine takes great pains to be relaxed: deep, plush leather booths, clapboard walls, sepia-toned pictures of cows and cottages. But it’s unavoidably frenetic, as harried servers rush to seat thirsty post-work stockbrokers. To alleviate all that tension, the first round of cocktails comes fast and strong—gin-soaked negronis ($10), horseradish-spiked caesars ($8), dirty martinis ($10)—and the snacks, like the extra-corny deep-fried hush puppies, encourage lingering.

  • Giancarlo

    “Pick-up potential” at Toronto Temperance Society? Odd categorization, given the fact that membership rules include “Do not approach a lady unless she approaches you first.”

  • Brian

    Incorrect address. Should be 782 Queen Street East, not 82.

  • Toronto Life Staff

    Thanks for catching that, Brian. It’s been fixed.
