If you like good food, cold beer, cocktails this is the place to go in Etobicoke. Live music is on hand on Fridays and Saturdays depending on the time of year. You will love the atmosphere and the staff are 2nd to none!

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
