Very cool little bar in a lively artistic area, punk vibe and music, small standing patio outside. Solid tap selection with fast rotation, they have Peche Mortel year round (!). Bottle selection leaned more toward imports. Prices seemed pretty fair for the area, service was fine, crowd was quite talkative. Might be unappealing for some with its raw punk style but this is probably a great definition of a local dive bar.

A little gem/hole in the wall in kensington. An odd aroma of litter box when we alked in but the beers made up for it. Solid taps, some great rare bottles. Fiendly bartender, good tunes. No food, but i love the dive, youre here to drink not eat vibe. Definitely has a hipster vibe, but i dont mind it. Id go back in a heartbeat.

2015-06-17. Stopped in for a NB tap takeover so there was a good selection of their beers on tap. The bar is not really what I was expecting, itís smaller, and less punk rock than I had (for some reason) pictured. Itís a bit divey but mostly in a fun way. Tiny patio out front. The girl working the bar tonight is exactly as feisty as you would expect. Not much in the way of food options, apparently people tend to bring food in from neighbouring places. Prices are pretty reasonable. Had fun, I would come back but itís far enough from my usual haunts that it probably wonít be often. Definitely worth a visit if you are in town visiting Kensington Market.

Cool little bar in Kensington Market. I stopped in for a beer a few times as happened to be staying a few blocks away. Tidy selection of craft beer and a few interesting bottles in the fridge. Yeah itís pretty grungy here but I liked it. You can bring in your own food which is great as thereís good options to grab food in the market. Good service.

When I visited: Mid-April 2014.
What I had: Petrus Aged Pale, Dieu du Ciel! & The Alchemist Moralitť, and Thiriez & Jester King La Petite Princesse in bottle, Beauís & Kissmeyer Nordic Pale Ale on tap, some white wines for the lady.
What I liked: Solid beer selection with a few rarities in bottles, owner was very hospitable to us, decent prices, proper glassware.
What I disliked: Too-cool-for-school crowd is not my scene, no food or table service from what I remember, limited seating, a dive bar for punk rockers and hipsters.
Would I go back? For the hard-to-find gems that they occasionally get (like the Stillwater Classique cans that just came in), yes.
Overall Rating: 62

If I lived in Toronto, I would want to come to this place all the time. Pretty nice selection considering its size (I canít imagine 40-50 people fitting into this place), and I canít say enough about the staff....old punk dudes who did time in some great bands. Iíll also have to give the food a 10/10 rating. If you havenít had it, the salisbury steak is just incredible...worth every penny. Great selection of local and regional brews, in a great area.

Punk Rock and beer, this was one of my favourite bars visited in Toronto not named Volo. Peche on tap was insane.

Small litte bar in Kensington market, and a diamond in the rough. 10 taps of solid beers, thats it, and good company from the owner. Some rare bottles from abroad.
