New King West bar Early Mercy brings food trucks to you

Toronto’s club count has grown by one: Early Mercy, a 3,500-square-foot bar will open November 6 in the old Grand & Toy location at King West and Brant. The 300-capacity room features a central bar flanked by TVs (which will screen sports games), and a wall of garage doors that opens onto a street-side patio. The potential Tinder-date destination also has a window food trucks can pull up to and sell to the revellers inside. Most of the time, it’ll be The Food Dudes’ truck dishing out beer-friendly comfort food like mac-and-cheese, but other trucks will visit on occasion.
