Visited this bar this past weekend. It was not crowded at all and we were able to grab drinks from the bar rather quickly (we arrived around midnight). This bar had a great vibe and the music was a good volume you could still talk...More

I was here with friends for an after-dinner cocktail, and I really enjoyed it. In particular I had a "Penicillin" (Blended Scotch, Honey, Ginger, Lemon, Laphroaig 10) which was really good. The place is not "hidden", but there is no clear indication, so if you...More

I absolutely love Brick & Mortar. It's one of the more authentic speakeasies left (the door in unlabeled so you actually feel cool going in) and the vibe inside is awesome. There's a surprisingly decent amount of seating given that the place is a small....More

One Onethousand with bourbon, cynar, lemon, and apricot is delicious. The duck far fries are too good to share with other people.

The door is unlabelled, but that is about as hipster as this place gets. More of a traditional bar/pub vibe. Cocktails at acceptable prices, though with a fair bit of ice. Burgers and duck fries were pretty decent too.

I use to love this bar, and respect the staff. I would frequently refer friends and co-workers to enjoy the atmosphere of Brick & Mortar. The establishment is known for having a great and positive vibe about it, but unfortunately, all of this seemed to...More

This bar has a relaxed if extremely gentrified feel and serves up a decent cocktail at fairly ambitious prices. Friendly bar staff helped the atmosphere. Not a bad place in a pair or group but not ideal for solo travellers

I went to this bar on a Thursday post-work after reading positive reviews. I was not disappointed. It's somewhat mysterious- with no name on the door and up a flight of stairs. All brick, with a big copper topped bar. It was just the right...More
