Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

If you're visiting from out of town, The Townsend is an ideal bar to find yourself in. It has a dark and elegant interior but isn’t stuffy, a refined cocktail menu but also a killer burger and fries, and it’s quiet but not boring. In purist fashion, the flavors found in their cocktails often come from amaros, aperitifs and herbal liqueurs instead of over-the-top tinctures and complicated syrups. This is especially evident in one of our absolute favorite hot weather drinks, the Toronto Buck—a tiki-inspired combination of Knob Creek Rye, Fernet Branca, lemon, ginger beer, orgeat and aromatic bitters served over crushed ice and garnished with a bouquet of fresh mint.
