Keep the good times rolling with Toronto’s cheapest Caesars

Torontonians have long treated their Sunday morning hangovers with an indulgent brunch and a boozy Caesar, thus making the city’s selection decisively competitive. If you’re still reeling on your bar tab from last night, keep calm, because knocking back a glass of the beloved Canadian cocktail doesn’t have to break the bank. Here’s are some of our fave spots in Toronto offering unconscionably cheap Caesars.

The Lakeview

1
1132 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1X2

Only three things are certain in life as a Torontonian: the ineptness of the Maple Leafs, the unreliability of the TTC, and that no matter the time of day, even Christmas morning at 3 am, the Lakeview will be open. Keeping our brunches buzzing since 1932, ol’ faithful serves daily $4 Caesers before 5 pm (3 am is before 5 pm, right?)

Pogue Mahone Restaurant

2
777B Bay St, Toronto, ON M5G 2C8

This College Street standout has the sordid designation of offering the city's cheapest Caesar. The sprawling Irish pub is a best-bet for brunch without a wait on a Sunday morning, with Caesars priced at an alarmingly affordable $3 each and every weekend

Hide Out Toronto

3
423 College St, Toronto, ON M5T 1T1

The essence of sweat, spit and spilt beer from last night’s rock show only adds to the atmosphere of this Queen West harbor for the hungover. Come for the dim lighting and stay for the general air of commiseration, not to mention perhaps the tastiest Caesar on our list: $8 for a double.

Pour House Irish Pub

4
182 Dupont St, Toronto, ON M5R 2E6

This temple to all things tipsy is certainly worth the trek up to the Annex – or more specifically, the pilgrimage. Head here for "Salvation Sundays," where they're saving the besotted, one $4 soul-snuggling Caesar at a time.

O'Gradys Tap And Grill

5
171 College St, Toronto, ON M5T 1P7

With some of the best hair-of-the-dog specials in the city, we love O'Grady's because it's perhaps the one place in Toronto where no matter how inhumanly hungover we are, there are a dozen people here in worse shape, due to its proximity to the U of T campus. Schadenfreude is actually the best medicine. That, and eminently affordable Caesars – $3.50 each, every Friday.

Murphy's Law Pub & Kitchen

6
1702A Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4L 1G6

Surely Murphy was on a bit of a bender when he devised his universal law of bad vibes. Despite the name, you'll find nothing of the sort at this cheerful east-end watering hole, serving up spicy headache antidotes both Saturday and Sunday for $4 a pop.

Hurricanes Roadhouse Restaurant

7
963 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6H 1L7

Another pub heroically pushing through to the sub-$4 range, Hurricane’s is the spot for the sports buffs among us. Hangover-nursing Leafs fans can typically be found in this Bloorcourt canteen every Saturday and Sunday, erasing last night’s epic collapse from memory, $3.50 at a time.

An oasis tucked away from the busy din of its surrounding streets, the St. George campus of the University of Toronto offers an easy excuse to while away a day admiring its stately green spaces and age-old architecture. You’ll also find some of the city’s most charming cafés in the area, perfect for a study session (Wifi included), some pre-class reading or a caffeinated catch-up with a pal. [Photo: latte at Voodoo Child]
There are two kinds of wine drinkers: those that taste with their palate, and those that taste with their wallet. For those of us in the latter category, you’ll be pleased to find Toronto’s east-end offers a number of budget-friendly wine nights throughout the week, sure to satisfy your inner wino as well as your inner cheapskate.
Tiki is in, gin joints are out – that’s how Toronto’s bar trend skews. Whether you’re looking for a new locale to wet your whistle on a weekly basis or out to annex a portion of your liver to the city’s most visionary cocktails creators, for richer or for poorer, here are Toronto’s best new and notable bars for 2016.
