You come to the Barrelhouse Flat for cocktails—it’s one of the finest drinking establishments in the city, thanks to head bartender Stephen Cole’s list of 70 classics that range from familiar (whiskey sour) to arcane (Jimmie Roosevelt, anyone?) and oft-changing house cocktails. But you stay at the Barrelhouse Flat for the food, namely the headcheese poutine and whatever the daily flavor of popcorn is.

Because of its location, this bar can get a bit broish, but dont let that fool you, not only do they have a killer beer list, but their bartenders are super knowledgable and take their cocktails super seriously. It can be hard to find a spot to sit on the weekends, but if youre willing to wiat its worth it.

It's fun to watch the bartenders here make drinks, they really love what they do. They have a huge menu but anything you order will be made to perfection.
