I would not suggest hitting this bar on a Friday or Saturday night – it is a typical sports bar and easily becomes douchebag central. But I did happen to end up here with my partner in crime on a Sunday evening to watch the hockey game. That’s right, we watch hockey. This is a sports bar and normally I would leave these off the list but it wasn’t half bad. They have a decent selection of beers on tap and a full gastro pub menu. So if you need to find a spot to watch a game and have some beer. Pick here and order the Animal Fries – you can thank me later.

Open late: Saturday till 5, Tuesday-Friday till 4, Monday till 2

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
