COSMIC COCKTAILS

If you like your drinks with a view, Offworld will take you to fresh heights. The new cocktail bar on Queen Street West has futuristic decor and virtual ‘windows’, meaning visitors can sip space-inspired tipples such as the xenophauna — celery-infused gin, chartreuse, lime and demerara syrup, garnished with a fried grasshoppe­r — while overlookin­g the cosmos. offworldba­r.com

STREETS AHEAD

Ossington Avenue has been named one of the coolest streets in the world by Time Out magazine and we hardly disagree: there’s Latin-Asian fusion fare at Foxley, sour ales at Bellwoods Brewery and ice cream sandwiches at Bang Bang, alongside vinyl shops, boutiques and plenty of street art. foxleybist­ro.com bellwoodsb­rewery.com bangbangic­ecream.ca
