Yonge/Eglinton Bars/Lounge

What about Quince? I seem to remembre someone saying they had a small bar area for wine.

Yonge/Eglinton Bars/Lounge

Hey there

Anyone have a good spot to go for a few drinks on a week night in the Yonge/Eglinton/Mt. Pleasant area?

It can be a bar/resto/lounge etc, just looking for something fairly quiet, with good ambience for a date.

I'd thought about Coquine, but it might be a bit too loud to have a conversation.

I thought about some restaurants, like Simple Bistro or that, but that might be too much of a dining experience, and we're just looking for drinks.

Thanks!

Mirabelle (Yonge/Eglinton)

Well, drove by the place this past Wednesday evening, and it appeared closed. I tried calling the number on the sign and it was not in service.

So, it appears that whatever incarnation Mirabelle has become it might now be closed.

Hi Furhead - thanks for the reply.

Is the original owner (Dion) still around? It sounded like he might still be involved? I know there was a 2nd owner who came on board, and I'm guessing was the motivation for the change.

When I went by, it appeared they had pretty much gutted the old place (the bar area was gone).

Did they still have a wine list? Doesn't sound like it has much to do with Mirabelle anymore, which is a pity, it was a good place to go with friends, or a date.

This was a favourite spot of mine for the past few years, a great little wine bar with an impressive list of consignment labels and some interesting food pairings.

The owner was always friendly and offered up a good explanation on each vintage. Great service, relaxed vibe and ambience.

I was last there in the early fall, and the next time I went by a few weeks later, it had changed names and was a Lebanese style grill place.

Anyone know what happened with Mirabelle?
