L’ABSINTHE PAR­LOUR

SE­CRET BAR

Where Toronto - - BEST OF THE CITY -

Tucked above the Lit­tle Italy bistro Coq of the Walk is a cozy ode to the green fairy that looks just like your friend’s liv­ing room—if your friend lived in belle époque Paris. The place, which is only open on Fri­days and Satur­days, car­ries a dozen absinthe va­ri­eties, in­clud­ing a rye-based ver­sion from Toronto dis­tillers Dil­lon’s, and Mansinthe, a Swiss-made spirit cre­ated by Mar­i­lyn Man­son. You can drink them neat from a tra­di­tional Gilded Age drip foun­tain or mixed into cock­tails like a Chef Devil, with sparkling wine and lime sor­bet. The menu of­fers on-theme French cheeses and char­cu­terie, which may help avoid le grand hang­over. 488 Col­lege St., co­qofthe­walk.com
