Something called a “tiki rock bar” is in the works for Leslieville

Something called a "tiki rock bar" is in the works for Leslieville

Bill Hicks is the name of the business that’s moving into the little second-storey space once occupied by Swirl, Leslieville’s prettiest, frilliest and most unabashedly twee hangout. Unfortunately, perhaps, for Swirl’s pinot-sipping regulars, the new spot at 946 ½ Queen Street East will be a very different breed of drinking destination. Bill Hicks calls itself a “tiki rock bar,” which apparently means a dive-y den plastered with “a shitload of vinyl” and anchored by a fully fledged indoor tiki bar, complete with $3 Jager shots and a bushy straw roof. According to a contact at the bar, the nightly luaus could begin by the end of the month.
