The antidote to the glut of posh clubs that have been proliferating in Toronto, this long-established oasis of a dive bar boasts the city’s best nachos, cheap beer, rowdy [’]90s-themed dance nights, and excellent live music. The graffiti-layered walls are a testament to the many generations of punks—both poseur and genuine—who have knocked back a pint or three at this well-loved watering hole. Arcade Fire, Feist, and the Dirty Projects all started their music careers with performances at Sneak’s upstairs music venue, which rages until 2am. Downstairs, the Tex-Mex menu ain’t fancy, but it’s greasy enough to soak up a night’s worth of reveling. The lower level bar is open until 3am on weekdays, 4:30am on weekends.
