For a fla­grant novelty bar with Space In­vaders splat­tered all over its façade, Con­ve­nience has a com­par­a­tively sub­tle pa­tio. With pops of pri­mary colour – red chairs, yel­low um­brel­las, royal azure ta­ble legs – and a low wall of plants that curbs Queen West foot traf­fic from leer­ing too in­tensely, it’s a dandy lit­tle spot to crush a frosty beer on a swel­ter­ing af­ter­noon. But be warned: ca­sual beers can eas­ily tip into lit once your bad-in­flu­ence friend dis­cov­ers that cock­tails on tap (Ne­gro­nis, cos­mos, Pa­per Planes) are a measly five bucks.

1184 Queen West, at North­cote, 647-340-3640, con­ve­nienceresto­
