The excellent, eclectic music ranges from Hank Snow crooning to obscure shoe-gazer tracks, but don’t try and make any requests. The sassy bartenders here run the show. The small room is one of the few spots on quickly gentrifying Dundas West where the artistically inclined locals still gather, potent dark and stormies in hand, to make merry and forget the stresses of the day. The vibe here is witch chic: Think antique dolls that look ready to come to life, mounted owls, and a decorative church pulpit. The space doubles as a gallery, always showing a rotating roster of interesting local artists. Monthly tarot card readings are a big draw.
