I'll be visiting Toronto in a couple of weeks (first time), and am meeting a friend who will also be coming from out of town (again, first time in Toronto).
We've got dinner and lunch plans sorted out for the few days we're visiting, but I'm interested in trying to find somewhere for drinks on Friday and Saturday night after dinner. Places on the more quiet side are preferred, but this doesn't mean you have to be able to hear a pin drop. I would prefer to stay away from dance clubs and the like. Somewhere that has a relaxed vibe where we can sit back, drink a couple of bottles of wine and be able to hear one another without shouting.
We are staying in the Annex area, and are having dinner downtown both nights - JKWB (my choice) and Barberian's (his choice), so perhaps somewhere local to any of these would be good options. Suggestions anyone?
