This place had 40 some odd craft beers on tap! It has a very rustic atmosphere. You do not get served here, you place all you orders at the bar and then they are delivered to your table. The menu has a large selection of small share plates so you order a combination of plates and they are brought out... More

Though I'm not hugely into the beer/bar scene, I quite like Bar Volo. This place is unique, welcoming, modern, and cozy. You'll be amongst great people if you frequent this place. Of note, this bar does tend to be quite packed making casual drinks a bit difficult at times, but hey, that's a sign of a good hot spot, am... More

Me and my dad (dad who doesn't speaks in English) sitted at a place where I couldn't get out so easily, which was in between 2 couples having a good time... but you see, my dad was at a place where he could go to the bar easily (SINCE YOU HAVE TO ORDER YOUR BEER ON THE BAR, NO WAITER)...... More

We visited Bar Volo on a Sunday for drinks and lunch. When we walked in I was impressed with the rustic decor, the blackboard with their beer selection and the friendly staff that told to sit anywhere we wanted. The staff did tell us that when we decide on what we wanted just head up to the bar to place... More

This place beats all other bars in town with their great beer selection. We recommend tasting several beers from the list. We found a new favorite: Herbe Detourne by Dieu du Ciel. The service was also very friendly and prices were reasonable. Our extended afternoon visit to Volo was one of the highlights of our Toronto vacation.

Such an amazing bar to visit, it's kind of a hidden gem. It really reminded me of a European style bar that you would find in France or Belgium. Shared tables, an amazing array of different beers or tap and in bottles. The ambiance is perfect with great DJs playing in the background. Brought back nice memories from my travels... More

I love the fact that this place has so many verities of beer and a draft line of A-Z. The bartender always has a beer to recommend to me and they always let you taste test as well. The sad part is that their always too busy so unless you go pretty early you won't be able to find a... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
