If the vibe is right, cold beer and warm pub grub at your favourite neighborhood bar can be just as romantic as fine wine and haute cuisine at the fancy French restaurant in town. At Toronto’s Bar Hop, the vibe is always right, making it the perfect place to go when date night calls for a casual touch. Hopefully both you and your sweetheart like craft beer, because that’s what this King Street pub is all about. The bar features a seasonal selection of no fewer than 36 beers on tap and two hand-pulled cask ales, making a flight of 5 ounce pours your best bet for responsible sampling. As for the food, nothing tastes better with these brews than the bar’s signature burger. Sophisticated and delicious, the Bar Hop Burger doesn’t need much dressing up in the way of condiments, getting its rich flavor from a sophisticated blend of chuck and brisket, with bone marrow aioli, aged cheddar cheese, and Tamshire bacon rounding out the decadent experience. Though the surrounding Entertainment District may be buzzing with activity, the casual design of the interior–exposed brick walls, industrial light fixtures, and a massive chalkboard beer menu–makes it a peaceful sanctuary amid the din. But for even more privacy, snuggle up in the front corner booth, where it’ll feel like it’s just you, your date, and no one else. With dinner, drinks, and ample conversation topics all wrapped up in one place, you can settle in, relax, and stay awhile.
