Buried at the back of a nondescript barbershop, Gift Shop at Ossington offers an unforgettable cocktail experience in the heart of downtown Toronto.
The modest, 18-seat bar occupies a former art studio—with raw walls and scuffed paint to prove it. At its helm, a barman known only as “H” stirs mouthwatering original cocktails like the seasonal “Roasting Those Canadian Chestnuts!” But it’s H’s classic Beefeater gin martini—served at precisely -4.5°C—that puts up a fight as being the best martini in Canada.
