A new bar on Dundas West from the owners of Parkdale’s Motel
Bars and restaurants have been steadily colonizing the Dundas West strip between Ossington and Dufferin, including Churchill, The Federal Reserve, Brockton General and Midfield Wine Bar. The latest addition is Lucy Brock, a new bar from the owners of the dive bar Motel on Queen West. It courts a slightly more grown-up crowd with polished concrete floors, exposed brick walls and Southern-inspired cocktails, like a Basil Gin Flip with lemongrass and lime. For food, there are small plates to come, possibly from a rotating roster of pop-up chefs. Quirky details add charm, like a street-light chandelier (salvaged from a military base near Ottawa) and a bar top covered in $250 worth of out-of-circulation Canadian pennies.
