Drinking in Toronto

Will be in town for a wedding this fourth weekend. Wedding and hotel are downtown (am staying at the Sheraton). Looking for some suggestions on where to go for drinks either walking distance or a short cab ride away.

Does Toronto have any sort of "speakeasy" lounge type places that specialize in mixed drinks? Something like PDT in NY or Violet Hour in Chicago, etc.? Or if not a specialty, some place with excellent mixed drinks, a relatively quiet atmosphere good for chatting, good seating options, etc?

Also, am looking for a good rec for a casual Friday night dinner... possibly in the Yorkville area? That is where everyone goes, right? Love contemporary American (or Canadian I guess) food (well... all food, actually). Good drinks also required!
