Retro Fun

Early on a Sunday morning I was wandering just off Yonge St, which is our main street, when I spotted this row of retro metal chairs. And then I saw the sign! Of course I ran over for a pic but the place wasn't open yet so for a look at the interior I hit their website. Apparently Duke's Bar is an outpost of a bar found in Muskoka (cottage country north of the city) and it has been open since last December serving good pub food and they have 40 beers on tap. It is officially on my list of must visits. And I got quite the reflection including moi.

I like everything about this place. I bet inside is even more so retro.

For a pub so new they did their best to look as old as possibly. I say it worked . Nice kind of americana here.

William Kendall said...

I'm surprised it's new. It has a lived in kind of look.

Love the sign and the lawn chairs out front. It has a real 1950s look to it. From the rust, that is about the right age.

VioletSky said...

Those chairs are so comfy, too (unless they've been out in direct sunlight!). The little tables are a cute addition. Looks like an interesting place.

Lois said...

I see you! Those chairs are a wonderful find. You'll have to get some pics of the inside to show us when you go back.
