Every detail is looked after to create the perfect tasting experience. Chilled glasses and rims dipped in the finest of ingredients, including lavender sugar and lemongrass. Different flavour combinations were muddled and mixed to excite your palette. The new spring/summer menu at East Thirty-Six, uses seasonal flavours with lots of citrus inspired liqueurs to evoke a clean and crisp feeling, like a spring morning, when enjoying your drink.
The mixologists, headed by Julien Salomone, were busy making new cocktails including:
A sweet tasting drink with citrus infused Absolut vodka, passionfruit syrup and a dash of Dillion’s DSB Bitters with notes of vanilla and allspice.
The trendy “cousin” of tequila, Mezcal takes center stage in this green coloured cocktail. Like tequila, it was sipped with a salted rim. Instead of the typical lemon wedge, a chilli pepper graced the drink with a toothpick. The smoky pepper flavour was very subtle but evened out the sweet agave.
The gourmet snack food was delicious. Circling through the room were Lamb Sliders and Fried Humboldt Squid.
On a regular night, the venue can hold 120 people standing, or 65 seated for dinner. There is also a semi-private room for parties of 18. The evening saw the space filled with people mixing and mingling after work, complemented with jazz music from the Brushstrokes Trio, that made the relaxed ambiance even more enjoyable.

Do you value a good draft beer? Or maybe you’re all for supporting fresh local food? If you value either of these things then do I have a venue for you to look forward to!
CRAFT Beer Market, a premium casual restaurant with one of the largest selections of craft beer in Canada launched back in Calgary in 2011 by owner PJ L’Heureux and has been taking Canadian cities by storm – “one beer, one meal and one experience at a time”.
This year, Torontonians are getting a new addition to the booming beer scene as CRAFT plans to open a new Toronto location right at Yonge & Adelaide that features over 160 draught beers, premium selections of different wines and spirits and a menu specializing in North American Cuisine.
As far as space for events go, the Yonge & Adelaide location will provide multi-levels, multi-bars and several meeting and party spaces for a variety of group sizes!
CRAFT proudly quotes, “We believe in making a positive impact in everything we do, from our workplace to our community to the planet as a whole.“
And it shows! Known for using fresh local food products from the surrounding community, Craft takes pride in their welcoming and inclusive restaurant atmosphere that draws thousands of customers each year to different locations across Vancouver, Edmonton and Ottawa — just to name a few.
