Was here with my friend for an afternoon of patio drinking. They've got great local selections and we managed to catch some great drink specials so it was easy on the wallet too! Food was good, and our waiter was awesome.

South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous
mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The
blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic
collection of entertainment, from theatres and

one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of
what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and
