Top 5 at Miss Thing’s in Toronto

The first queer party I attended when I moved to Toronto five years ago (November 2010 ya’ll) was Big Primpin at Wrong Bar. It was my local watering hole, a quick hop, skip and a jump from my Parkdale Palace at King and Jameson. What a surprise I received this past August after arriving to dinner to find myself standing inside the familiar space, now transformed into a Bora Bora inspired Tiki Bar!


The space has been totally redesigned and reinterpreted. The live music venue known as Wrong Bar has been sized down and renamed the Coconut Room while a swish restaurant now dubbed Miss Thing’s, has been decked out in fancy design elements reminiscent of a French Polynesian beach party.  I was immediately brought back to the Four Seasons Bora Bora which I had the pleasure of staying last December while researching the most luxurious honeymoon paradise destinations on earth.

Chef’s Jasper Wu and Paul Hadian have created a menu which features classic Pan Asian and Polynesian dishes, alongside head barman Reed Pettit’s playful yet decadent tropical cocktail creations. The interior is designed by Ian Rydberg of Solid Design Build, taking subtle cues from American and Hawaiian tiki culture, and the retro mid-century hotel lobby bars of yesteryear with a fresh modern perspective.

Here are my Top 5 Must Try’s at Miss Thing’s in Toronto:


1) Sugar Plum Cobbler | pisco gobernador, port, lemon, luxardo, maraschino, sugar plum, cinnamon
