The Cross-Canada Hotel Bar Hop

The first stop on the Cross-Canada Bar Hop: Prohibition!

Work and play in Prohibition

The sound system at this Howe Street speakeasy hidden beneath the Hotel Georgia (look for the green light above the massive wood doors) has been carefully calibrated so you don’t have to shout over the live jazz. That makes the dark, moody room perfect for a bit of business accompanied by tie-loosening absinthe (dripped over sugar cubes from a belle époque-style fountain), albacore tuna sliders and bartenders whose tricks and bottle tosses are part of the show. No wonder Louis Armstrong and Nat King Cole used to hang out here.
