Sandwiched somewhere between the Drake and the Cadillac Lounge, both literally and figuratively, Parkdale Drink is neither as hip as the former nor as honky-tonk as the latter, though the loungy space is still the ritziest stop west of Dufferin. The crowd sports a typical west-end mix of high fashion and unkempt facial hair—i.e., the "’I’m with the band" aesthetic. Everything from premium vodka to trendy Patrón tequila to fruity Alizé can be bought by the bottle. For those seeking a single libation, the eponymous signature concoction combines Jack Daniel’s, vodka, pomegranate liqueur and Red Bull. A bold choice, perhaps, but so is a martini lounge in Parkdale.
