1426 Bloor W, Toronto, Ontario
The Gaslight is the local that Bloor West has been waiting for. Partners Megan Jones and Tim Pritchard (both seasoned bartenders) opened it last autumn at Bloor and Symington, a low-key corner in desperate need of a bar. The thoughtfully designed interior is made extra-welcoming with small touches like fresh cut flowers. The $15 cocktail has no place here (in fact, all beverages are priced very fairly), but Jones’s feature concoctions are super-tasty (and often available by the pitcher). In more tolerable weather, you’ll want to arrive early to sit on the Gaslight’s quaint back patio.
