Places on Toronto's Danforth to hope for a rare Leafs win

While it’s been a while since the Leafs have won the Cup, that’s done nothing to dampen hopes that this year just may be the one where they take it all. When they’re on a lucky streak, these Danforth places will help keep the fire alive.

St. Louis Bar & Grill

561 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1P9

At the end of the day, there’s always one thing you can count on and that’s being able to score an awesome beer and/or wings special any night of the week, regardless of the Leafs’ game schedule. Sit at the bar and gorge on specials like Sunday’s pint and a pound, or Tuesday’s half-price wings. Given the state of the Leafs’ play, here’s one thing on which you can bet.

The Old Nick Bar

123 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1N2

It’s one of the homiest bars on the Danforth, usually playing host to live music acts. But when it’s Leafs night, the TV’s tuned to the game while conversation slows to a few mumbled words here and there. There are plenty of food choices to keep your stamina up for the game, while the selection of beers and cocktails will help to wash down that goal that really should have been disallowed.

Eton House

710 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4J 1L1

With a gritty atmosphere and a ton of beer options, there are few better places to watch the Leafs game than here. The décor seems like it was frozen in the ‘80s, which incidentally is the last time the Leafs were really viewed as serious contenders in the league. With absolutely no pretensions, you can show your true colours here and be as happy or sad as the game dictates, even if it means crying into your beer.

Legends sports lounge

774 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4J 1L5

This place can get pretty testosterone-heavy, especially when the Leafs suit up to play. But women with a hardcore sports streak in them are always more than welcome, as the vibe is polite and friendly. There’s plenty to do here regardless of whether the blue-and-whites are playing well, with pool tables, dartboards and a ton of beer choices. The only thing that’s left is a plate of nachos, and all you have to do is say the word.

TKO's The Sports Pub

1600 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4C 1H6

At the eastern edge of the Greek part of the Danforth strip is this sports bar, complete with TVs, an ample beer selection, friendly patrons and a good offering on the menu. No matter who the Leafs are playing, the game will be all the sweeter if you pair it with a plate of wings, which is this sports bar’s calling card. It’s also located steps away from the subway station for easy access.

Good things come in small packages. That's especially true when you consider how much flavour can be packed into that classic pub-food favourite: the chicken wing.
