Best Tequila Bars in Toronto

Toronto has embraced tequila culture, with restaurants and bars offering extensive tequila lists, and entire bars dedicated exclusively to the agave drink. Originating from Jalisco, Mexico, the beverage is made from the blue agave plant found in that region. From tequilas to Mezcals, Toronto’s selection is sizable. Here are the best tequila bars in Toronto!

El Rey Mezcal Bar

2A Kensington Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2J7

Grant van Gameren’s bar in Kensington Market is the epitome of mezcal bars of Mexico. It offers more than 30 types of mezcal, all made with different agave syrups! With a menu like that it can be a little intimidating, but no need to worry. The staff offers an introduction to the world of mezcal with “What is Mezcal,” a quick history lesson and drink to help settle you in.

El Caballito

220 King St W, Toronto, ON M5H 1K4

Tequila and tacos are the name of the game at El Caballito. It specializes in Mexican tequila and authentic tacos, created by head chef Elia Herrera, who was inspired by the recipes passed down from her grandmother and mother. You can get the perfect marriage of the two on Tequila & Taco Tuesdays, where alongside the amazing taco and tequila special, you can hear live Mexican music.

El Catrin Destileria

18 Tank House Lane, Toronto, ON M5A 3C4

Imagine any type of tequila and El Catrin probably has it behind the bar. The Distillery District restaurant has a full two pages of tequila options and house-made cocktails! Grab one of your favourite agave drinks and head out to the award-winning patio for the ultimate experience!

Barrio Coreano

642 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6G 1K9

If you’re looking for tequila cocktails look no further than Barrio Coreano. From Strawberry Fields to Cadillac Margarita there’s just so much to chose from on the house cocktail menu. These cocktails are well suited for any menu item at Barrio Coreano.

Fonda Lola

942 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1G8

Fonda Lola is home to some of the best margaritas in the city, so it’s no surprise that it made the list. The bistro-like atmosphere and delicious eats are enough to get you through the door, but the house-made margaritas will keep you there!

La Carnita

106 John St, Toronto, ON M5V 2E1

With three locations across the city you really have no excuse not to check out La Carnita. The tequila and cocktail menu selections can stand alone, but we won’t complain about the delicious pairing of tacos and one of the classic tequila cocktails.

Playa Cabana Hacienda

14 Dupont St, Toronto, ON M5R 1V2

Serving Mexican cuisine with a twist, Hacienda’s tequila options are plentiful. Ranging from Blanco to Anejo, it offers some serious quality tequilas on the menu. If you’re looking to drop some dough on a tequila shot, here’s just the thing: Clase Azuil Ultra which sells for $250 a shot.

Los Colibris Cocina Mexicana

111 Richmond St. West, Toronto, ON M5H 2G4

Los Colibris’ gourmet Mexican cuisine wouldn’t be complete without a little tequila! Perhaps taking some cues from its sister restaurant El Caballito, the tequila list is quite extensive, offering more than 50 options. If you’re more of the cocktail drinker Los Colibris also makes killer margaritas.

Reposado Bar and Lounge

136 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 1R5

Reposado is home to Toronto’s largest selection of tequila. The menu is full of premium selections that make any tequila lover take notice. There’s also a small tapas menu that pairs nicely with the tequila list.
