Farside bar


We are a bar that makes space for creativity and engages community. 

Opened in 2016 with the goal to

bring a comfortable, living-room

style vibe to East Chinatown.


We offer a wide variety of libations. Ranging from discount domestic beers,

to rare Ontario Craft sours, ciders and

IPAs, to quality cocktails, there is something for everyone.

We project weird VHS, encourage communication between neighbours,

and host artists in residence.
