This is definitely a bar to hit during the day. Happy hour before 6pm, the bartenders don't look like they hate you, and it's much less crowded.

The selection used to be amazing, back in '08 and early '09, but it has started slipping over the past year. I'm not going to complain about being able to drink a variety of Russian River and Moonlight all day, but most of the time, that's ALL that is interesting. Its selection doesn't compare to some of the amazing bars down in SoCal, and the events they hold here are nothing to write home about.

The bartenders are also surly assholes. It's not charming.

There is no food in the bar, but you can bring food in. There is an EXCELLENT sausage place next door, and they will deliver to the Toronado if you ask, so go for it. There are also dozens of pizza places around the street. A great compromise.

This used to be THE TORONADO. Now it's the Toronado.
