Expertly crafted cocktails at East Thirty-Six

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.

If you’re into old games and beating your friends in every possible game, let me tell you, you’re going to have a blast! This bar is made for you.

 

On the other hand, if you just want a quiet evening with your SO (significant other, FYI), you can chill in the large couches while enjoying a cool beer. You cannot ignore the calling of beer on a warm summer night.

 

But if you’re interested in meeting new people and socializing a little, be sure to go there! No less than 158 people meet there each weekend! The popularity is rising!  You can also organize a private event for any occasion of your choosing. You can book an area for your team or group to enjoy the games together and special tournaments can be organized.

 

The games are a destination for everyone. You can choose between Bocce Ball, Shuffleboard and Crokinole. You can go check out the rules on their website. You can rent out lanes by the hour or consider joining a league.

 

That is all for today. Thank you for tuning in and I hope I’ll have the pleasure to write on other interesting venues for you to enjoy!

The Toronto Rum Diaries

This is the summer of RUM and the forecast looks Dark and Stormy. The Rum Exchange is a unique rum themed bar located in downtown Toronto. The décor is very club-ish and the venue caters mostly to the after work crowd. Throughout the week the Rum Exchange offers after work drink specials. From Monday- Friday you can enjoy $5 bar rail and house wine along with $3 domestic beer and complimentary appetizers. The high top tables in the centre of the venue are made to look like old wooden rum barrels that have been repurposed very obviously playing on the rum theme. The Rum Exchange is primarily a bar, but they do offer some small plates such as bruschetta, chicken tenders and lamb skewers.

 

Founder Rumen Dimitrov has a passion for all things alcohol. Not only did he open the Rum Exchange, but he is also the founder of Pravda Vodka Bar which stocks more vodka varieties than anywhere else in the city.  His vision was to create the perfectbar/lounge for the after work crowd and it seems his vision has been achieved. Behind the bar is lit up in bright colours displaying the most impressive collection of rums in Toronto. Get introduced to the best and most recent rums on the market at one of the Rum Exchange’s rum tastings. They have more than 80 rums in stock so you’re guaranteed to find something that satisfies your tastes.

The Rum Exchange loves to host private and corporate functions. Scotiabank and KPMG have held their events there. The space can host anywhere between 50 and 125 people and comes fully equipped with an AV system (both screen and projector), microphone and DJ booth at no extra charge. It’s also really close to a lot of hotels which is very convenient if you’re bringing in people from out of town.  For any event the Rum Exchange offers the choice between either standing or passed hors d’oeuvres that include vegetarian, seafood and meat options.

If rum is your thing or you’re simply into having a good time, be sure to check out the Rum Exchange.
