One of Toronto’s hippest neighborhoods just got a new cocktail bar and the drinks are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Parc Ave is located on the second floor at 265 Davenport Road, off Avenue Road. It’s a sophisticated place with an extensive cocktail menu and spectacular cocktail preparation.
The floor is divided into three elegant and warmly lit areas: the Ruby Bar, the Jade Room and the Gold Onyx Bar.
The summer drinks menu, curated by famed beverage director Ben Kingstone (Hotel X, Mother), features 14 trendy cocktails, ranging from $24 to $135.
The most expensive cocktail is the Sazerac: a cognac-based drink using Remy XO (a whole bottle costs over $300, no big deal!), Michter’s US1 Sour Mash, Peychaud’s bitters, sugar syrup and caviar as garnish.
Another notable cocktail at Parc Ave is Permanent Vacation.
It is made mainly with cucumber and basil Tromba Blanco and Sombra Mezcal. After adding a large ice cube to the glass, a hole is drilled to hold the stem of a succulent plant. Talk about a presentation!
Kingstone tells Dished that a new menu featuring seasonal ingredients will be launched in the fall.
Besides being a chic place for a nightcap, Parc Ave also doubles as a nightclub on Friday and Saturday nights.
The whole place can accommodate 200 guests wishing to relax on one of the sumptuous velvet gazebos or let loose on the dance floor.
So this is it. Be sure to check out this new candle spot the next time you’re in the neighborhood!
