A friend, and regular CheapEats contributor, has just opened her own bar – The Finn @ 971 College Street just west of Dovercourt.
We were invited for the “introduction night” last week and I was really impressed.
Ann & Scott have taken a slightly divey neighbourhood drinking spot and turned it into a place you’d be happy to bring a client to sample local microbrews or sip a martini. They’ve done a full HGTV-style redesign (without the HGTV-drama) on the space and come up with something that is slick and stylish. The menu is still under construction but the bar is fully stocked with microbrews, Guinness and Strongbow on tap.
I think the formal Grand Opening Event is still being planned and as soon as I have details I’ll pass them along. But in the meantime, it’s a great spot to drop in for a drink this season. Perfectly located on the nearest streetcar line too!
