There’s only one good way to end the night after a long day at work—a glass of nice wine in a stress free environment.

The Wine Bar has the city’s finest selections of wine by the glass or by the bottle. Instead of ordering a full-sized dish, their tapas-sized menu selection provides guests with the opportunity to try several new things. They provide the ideal dining experience—sip on a glass of wine paired with a few small, savoury dishes prepared fresh in front of you. The local artisan kitchen uses only the finest local and naturally-raised food produced in Ontario so the menu is constantly changing. If you’re having a hard time deciding what you want to try, the staff are very helpful in suggesting good pairings. The Wine Bar is participating in Summerlicious so it’s the perfect time to give it a try if you haven’t already!

Amidst the financial district is The Red Wines Tavern, another hotspot. With a 350-bottle cellar and over 70 wines offered by the glass, there’s sure to be one suitable for your taste. If you haven’t found your favourite wine-and-cheese combo yet, try a selection of 15 cheeses from around the world. They also offer a full menu of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. The wooden furnishing and décor encourages everyone to sit back and relax. Take off that blazer and loosen up your tie because your workday is over. You can even try your hand at shuffleboard if you’re up for the challenge!
