Relatively new bar in the recently constructed Corus building on Queens Quay / Sugar Beech. Visited on a quest.
The bar itself is very clean and modern, high end clientele but caters to a wide variety of folk. The patio was surprising busy for an overcast Sunday at noon making for a busy bar. The chairs by the window tables were very uncomfortable, at least to lounge on / eat at, request a booth if inside!
The beer ranges from a mix of macros, accessible / common micros and strangely enough some high end Belgian imports. This is where I went to sample the rare Westy 12. Canadian micros are the common ones you see everywhere, and prices tend to be high.
Food menu also seemed high end, not very diverse, especially for vegetarians. Service was fine.

Overall, this place is noteworthy for a few select specialty imports but will be pricey of course. Good overall atmosphere and very close to the Cooper St LCBO if you're planning on stopping to grab some seasonal release bottles.
