The Junction neighbourhood in Toronto has a distinctly olden-time feel to it. In keeping with that vibe, there’s an array of small shops that sell vintage and reclaimed items such as old stained glass windows, furniture and retro signs. Fitting seamlessly into the area, Hole in the Wall is a little sliver of a bar tucked into an alcove close to Keele and Dundas. Much of the decor has been salvaged and you can tell that a lot of well placed thought was put into the atmosphere.
I love how there’s usually a range of people (of any age) enjoying themselves here, and a few times a week they normally cram in a live band at the back. When there’s live music it gets really packed and the menu is well put together if you’re peckish (love the cheese plate).
And -how can I forget- the drinks? They have quite a few craft beers on tap. And an almost limitless array of liquors. The bartenders are all really cool and I’m sure they would be able to mix you a mean drink if beer isn’t your thing.
