As trendy as Yonge and Eglinton is, most people would agree that our area is what you’d call “family-friendly.” But even though it mostly gets a PG rating, we do have a few spots for boys to be boys, as it were. So whether looking for somewhere to hang out after softball or just wanting to unwind with a couple of mates, these spots at Yonge and Eglinton for a Boys’ night are definitely worth considering.
Top 5 Boys’ Night Locations at Yonge and Eglinton
The Right Wing (2497 Yonge St)
This is our neighbourhood sports bar and it’s a good one. The walls are lined with big screens and the owners will let you put on whatever game you’re into. Definitely try the wings: the sauces are homemade and pretty fantastic.
Spacco (2415 Yonge St)
This is our neighbourhood pool hall, and it’s all class in there. It’s also known on the strip as a great place to meet a lady or two, and mow down on delicious pizza. In the summer, their patio rivals just about anyone’s in town.
The Keg (2201 Yonge St)
Dudes and their steaks. Yeah, it’s a bit cliché, but no one grills a better filet mignon. The bar’s always hopping, especially given that it’s located on the ground floor of one of Toronto’s biggest “single in the city” condos, and the service is always on point.
La Carnita (130 Eglinton Ave E)
Imported from College Street, this Mexican joint is always on the city’s top 10 trendiest list. It’s co-owned by buddies of Drake, and it has a Sweet Jesus Ice Cream store attached to it for a delicious post-burrito dessert.
St. Louis Bar & Grill (2050 Yonge St)
This was the original “boys’ night out” spot on the strip. Almost any day of the week, you’ll find tables of teammates chowing down on famous wings and fries and downing pitchers of well-priced beer. Their summer patio is also a staple of the neighbourhood, but count on waiting a bit for a spot on it: it’s supremely popular.
