The owners of Bar Volo are opening another craft beer destination in Little Italy
Craft beer fans in Little Italy have something to celebrate: after years of serving hopheads at Yonge and Dundonald, the owners of Bar Volo are opening another bar on College Street next spring. The new place will open where Souz Dal used to be, and while co-owner Tomas Morana isn’t ready to share all the details, he tells us that it isn’t going to be just a second Bar Volo. “It’s going to be a more-focused taproom with very simple bar snacks. There’s no basement, no brewery, no kitchen,” he says. “The plan is to have really unique beers that you can’t find anywhere else in the city—sour beers, rustic ales, farmhouse brews and barrel aged beers—but with an Italian twist.” (It is Little Italy, after all, and Bar Volo started in 1985 as an Italian restaurant.) Morana and his co-owner brother Julian will also partner with the neighbouring Royal Cinema, which means that it might soon be possible to watch an indie flick in the theatre while enjoying a cold (and rare) one.
