I discovered this hidden gem while wandering the Kensington Market. Thirsty and Miserable is an unabashedly divey hole-in-the-wall with a spectacular beer selection and knowledgeable service. Don't just take a picture of the sign - duck inside and order a beer or three. I'll be...More
Offering a great selection of beers, this tiny cash only place was a great find while walking Kensington Market -
It's a quaint dark locale with friendly service & only slightly scary basement bathrooms -
Yes it's true: a dive bar -- and so of course cash only -- but with immaculately maintained craft beer lines and an excellent selection of craft beer in bottles and cans as well.
But dive bars aren't supposed to have clean washrooms; this place...More
Very tiny space to drink from an amazing variety of draught beer. The staff were super nice, the place was packed, lots of interesting conversations. Very little space to sit, however, we found a seat at the bar, and enjoyed some beer and conversation, which...More
When they say dive bar...they mean it. The whole place smells like a port-o-potty. I get that it's a cheap dive where you can bring in your own food, but you can find other craft beer bars nearby that's won't leave you plugging your nose.
I seek out dive bars when I travel, with full knowledge that they are likely to have whatever that town/country's version of PBR and Natty Bo in cans and possibly on draft. They're also likely to have Jameson/Jack or JimBo...or again, that town/country's equivalent.
Good selection of ales, porters and lagers to pick. The staff is friendly. The place is a bit run down but that's part of its charm (if you're looking for a Starbucks-kind of experience go somewhere else). My advice: enjoy the beer and the music...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
