Get Well

BARCHICK SAYS

We’re not sure what they’re claiming to cure, but the prescription is 1980's arcade games, cheap beers and good tunes. Sure, we’ll take our medicine.

They have a nice selection of 12 constantly rotating local Ontario ales and IPAs including their own cask beer. If you’re not a beer drinker, don’t go in expecting anything fancier than a vodka mixer or a glass of wine.

It’s got a low-key quirky vibe – vintage bric-a-brac, old neon signs and the big draw: tons of arcade games. We love the Dolly Parton and Elton John pinball machines. Tetris. Operation Wolf. Space Invaders. And they’re all FREE. Our inner 80's teenage boy with a mullet and high tops just wet his pants.

The jukebox is stacked with classics from the 70's onwards – think Supergrass and the Ramones. We see this place as kinda Toronto in bar form: craft beer, indie music, friendly and just unconventional enough to be interesting. It’s got character.

Located on Dundas West, it’s not like there’s a lack of options on the doorstop, but everyone wants in. It gets really crowded weekend nights, with people queuing up. We’re not sure why you would wait – it’s a cool spot for a beer and to hang with your friends, but you don’t need 125 others cramped in with you to do that. Go for an early evening drink or a week night competitive session of Pac Man.
