Exactly what you want in a pub. A place with deep history, excellent draught choices, and great food. The founder Mr McVeigh is often behind the bar, pulling pints, and is a fine host. If you like a good pint of Guinness, look no further...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
