T.O.’S BEST NEW BARS

Wet your whis­tle at these 8 ex­cit­ing new wa­ter­ing holes

The Pinker­ton’s kids have been busy. This trio of Ger­rard East en­trepreneur­s now has a third jewel in their crown: the VAT­I­CAN GIFT SHOP. This bar takes a Catholic theme and runs with it. Can­dles flicker atop can­de­labras, crosses abound, and there’s even con­fes­sional. While ’80s and ’90s jams add nos­tal­gia to the space, barflies sip on lo­cal brews from Left Field or craft cock­tails. Ride the Cliché pairs tequila blanco with Amaro Nonino, le­mon and gin­ger beer. Pizza, nat­u­rally, is the fo­cus of the food of­fer­ings. Pop­u­lar are the San Baglio, with sausage and kale, and the mor­tadella, ar­ti­choke and olive-stud­ded Capric­ciosa. Post-meal, those look­ing to let loose can hit the dance floor come 11 p.m. 1047 Ger­rard St. E.
