Name: Goldie Contact: 619 King St. W., 416-214-3180, goldie.ca, @goldie.ca
Neighbourhood: King West Previously: Candyland Owner: Reza Abedi (Trademark Hospitality Inc.) Chef: Romain Avril (Lavelle)

The drinks

Cocktails of the classic kind, and signature drinks developed by bar manager Jake Dolgy (Good Fortune, Frings) using premium booze. In addition to a selection of digestifs, there are international red and white wines available by the glass or bottle, and fancy-schmancy champagne from brands like Louis Roederer and Piper-Heidsieck. There’s bottle service in the upstairs lounge, but there’s a minimum spending amount (however if you’re willing to throw down $5,900 for a bottle of Remy Louis XIII, then that shouldn’t be an issue).

The space

A whole lot of velvet went into outfitting this 200-year-old townhouse. A more-relaxed cocktail bar takes up the first floor, while upstairs, there’s a moodier lounge equipped with its own DJ booth and bar, plus a private room that can accommodate up to 35 guests for tastings or parties.
