3 Unique Cocktail Bars in Toronto

Updated: Jan 7, 2019

The Lockhart The Lockhart pays tribute to none other than Harry Potter, one of the most famous book series in recent history. From the mural of Harry's pratronus, to the Deathly Hallows symbol on a light fixture, the subtleties will not be lost on hardcore Harry Potter fans. The true Harry Potter homage can be seen in their Potions & Elixirs cocktail menu. Named after many characters from the novels, it is truly the centrepiece of The Lockhart.  A true standout is The Botanist made with cucumber-infused gin, agave, lime juice, tonic, and lime bitters. 

Famous Last Words Book worms rejoice! There is a bar in town that caters to your every wish! The cocktail menu at Famous Last Words is chalk full of literary references. With inspiration from her favourite novels, owner, Marlene Thorne, concocts her recipes from scratch, creating her own bitters and syrups. On request, Thorne takes requests from book clubs, creating a cocktail based on their book of choice. The book clubs must consist of at least four people, and must give Thorne at least 48 hours notice!  

Track & Field Drinks + a game of bocce = best. cocktail. bar. ever. The 5,000 square foot space features two bocce lanes, two shuffleboard lanes and a crokinole board. All the lanes are free of charge, and one lane of each game can be reserved in advance for parties. The cocktail menu, like the rest of the bar, is a fun endeavour. With drinks like Versace, Versace, Versace, that is served on top of a fake $100 bill, and I Know The Owner, Borg adds a bit of humour to his signature drinks.
