Fynn’s of Temple Bar is an Irish pub on King West that’s always happening!! It usually has a full crowd after work hours, great place to get together for a pint or two with friends, the pub hosts live dj sets during the week and they always have drink special between certain hours. It’s very welcoming, fun, laid back. So next time you’re in the area looking for a place to chill out Fynn’s is your place. They also have a small, intimate patio, it fills up fast especially when the weather is nice so leave work early if you can! :)
This used to be Fion McCools but the owners bought out of the franchise so they could be more creative with the menu and have more fun with djs and drink specials.
They have drink specials almost every night, complementary oyster bar on Fridays and even cheap drinks on weekend brunches.
The chicken ceasar salad was awesome, especially on a beautiful patio with a beautiful girl on a sunny evening.
According to the owner:
In Dublin, there is a district called Temple Bar—known for its artsy culture, wild nightlife, and medieval aesthetic. In Toronto, Fynn’s of Temple Bar on King West embraces the charm of this historic quarter, representing the authentic Irish pub with a bent on healthy food, community outreach, and festive spirit.
Down some steps, the side entrance opens to a largely wooden interior, replete with an oblong bar that anchors the room. A long communal island is set in front of this pub mainstay, while the perimetre is peppered with half booths and banquettes, as well as classic table seating in a raised area. With exposed brick, a traditional snug with stained-glass trimmings, artwork exalting Irish landmarks (like the Guinness Brewery), and large windows that reveal the foot traffic of King West, Temple Bar proffers an unpretentious, inviting space to eat, drink, and be merry.
Temple Bar takes to the drink, with beer flights of your own making, a grand selection of single malts, and an array of Irish and American whiskey. Weekly drink and food specials add incentive to stick around, and daily features incorporate more menu items to the already massive bill of fare. Best described as Irish pub fare with gourmet twists, the cuisine provides the traditional (fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, Dublin steak and mushroom boxty), the more exotic (chicken tikka masala, Italian sausage flatbread, Tuscan chicken wrap), and the unusual (jalapeno cheese fondue, santa fe salmon salad, chicken tikka masala boxty). Finish with banana bread pudding, a chocolate volcano, some french vanilla ice cream—or just another pint of Guinness.
This place has all the right components of an Irish pub: great beer, nice patio, good service, great crowd, and guaranteed good time. I find the DJ does a great job at spinning what the crowd wants any given day plus it’s not unusual to enjoy some live bands too.
Make sure you don’t miss the daily specials…Guinness and free oysters on Fridays are my fav!
