D.W. Alexander: Toronto’s New Old Watering Hole

DW-Alexander-Toronto-Bar

Hang up your derby and loosen your cravat at Toronto’s newest history-hearkening cocktail lounge, D.W. Alexander. Ensconced in a 19th-century heritage building—and named after the site’s original tenant, a trader in sole leather—the subterranean space mixes old-fashioned elements, like reclaimed wood and bookshelves filled with curiosities from the city’s past, with chic new design trends, ensuring a rustic-meets-modern ambience. Updated spins on timeless bar snacks are made from local ingredients, while the drinks list is split between custom concoctions and well-made versions of the classics. Or try one of three beer-based cocktails made with Toronto-favourite Mill Street Organic Lager.  —Kait LaForce
