A Rockabilly Eve
While the Dundas West strip has become increasingly cluttered come nightfall thanks to the run off from Ossington, there are still some spots where you won’t be jostled by a 19-year-old for the bartender’s attention. Plenty wee spots offer their own charm, but Black Dice Cafe has a vibe all its own. Located a bit further west (”It's too far to stumble in heels!” I imagine said teenager yelling), BDC is a super nifty Japanese rockabilly bar. Come nice weather, the whole front of the bar is opened to the street; inside, patrons nurse Japanese whiskeys or sake-based cocktails while perched on the delightfully retro furniture, complete with lamps adorning the tables. A pinball machine holds court in a corner; a real jukebox entices barflies to use their coins to benefit the good of all. Did I mention they do yakitori and chips and dip? They do chips. With dip. So all the bases are covered.
