Introducing Firkin on Harbour

The area of Harbour/Yonge/Queens Quay near the waterfront is finally reviving. If you live in this area of the downtown core, it’s a bit of a dead zone for socializing. You’re usually heading elsewhere to grab a hot or cold drink and a bite to eat.

Finally, a well known name has come to the Harbourfront area. Firkin on Harbour, part of the familiar Firkin Group of Pubs, has leased the space that formerly belonged to Harbour Sports Grille. The grand opening is on April 26th at 4pm, according to their Facebook page. Surrounded by condos, this pub is sure to the local watering hole in this neighbourhood and it also includes an outdoor patio.

Another newcomer to the area is Tim Hortons. Located at 10 Queens Quay (by Yonge Street), it moved in a few months ago and is doing well because who doesn’t need a Tim’s in the morning.

For those of you who aren’t a fan of Timmy’s, you’ll be happy to note that I spied a Starbucks sign at the bottom of The Toronto Star building at Yonge and Queens Quay.

It’s not quite open yet but it looks like it will be in another week or two. I say to them all, welcome to the neighbourhood!
