The Dakota Tavern

Subterranean Saloon
The Dakota Tavern is Ossington Avenue's infamous subterranean saloon, an open concept rock bar with glowing skulls mounted on the wall, barn doors leading nowhere, and high-backed whiskey barrel stools surrounding the old oak bar. The Dakota has one of the best beer lists in the area (whenever you offer 500ml bottles of Beau's Dark Helmet for $10, I'm sold), a tuned-in crowd, and an always evolving live band list that rocks more often than not. Bonus points: the house band blows the barn doors open every Sunday evening, making the Dakota Toronto's best weekender.
