Reposado Toronto is a popular tequila and live music bar on Ossington Avenue.
The chic and dimly lit Mezcal watering hole offers premium tequilas, Mexican tapas, live music and one of Toronto’s best hidden patios.
Step inside Reposado Toronto
Located between Queen and Dundas on Ossington, Reposado Toronto is easy to find if you look down along the sidewalk at night as a bat logo shines from a spotlight at the front door. Made me smirk, Batman styles.
This Ossington restaurant and bar should be filed in the “don’t judge a book by its cover” chapter. The exterior doesn’t scream at you but once inside the interior offers a fantastic ambiance featuring accents from a Quebecois church and the glimmer and glow of mood lights.
Skip through the front door and you’ll find exposed brick walls, a long narrow bar and the perfect pitch of subdued romantic lighting. There are a smattering of stools to hop up at the bar and four top tables near the front of the room.
It’s not your typical Mexican-themed Bar. You won’t find tacky sombreros, Day of the Dead skulls or cartoon tacos here. Reposado Bar is where tequila connoisseurs, Mexican snack lovers and live music fans come to kick back and relax.
Step through the back door of Reposado Bar and you’ll find one of Toronto’s best hidden patios. West End hipsters can be found here in the summer chatting while sipping margaritas and munching on empanadas. From Reposado’s back patio guests enjoy a stunning view featuring an antique iron fire escape, which zig zags across the horizon.
