With us having worked in this industry since forever, we always envisioned what owning our own bar would be like…. when 1186 Queen Street West, now known as Brooklynn became reality, it was going to be a grass roots kinda place where three fundamentals would be key…
good music ~ good people ~ good times…
A place where red velvet ropes, and egos were checked at the door… we knew this local neighbourhood bar would be a no BS whiskey drinking bar that would be home to those who enjoy a home base where they would always be welcome, any day… anytime.
We try and keep as innovative as possible, being ranked in Toronto Life magazine as “best bottle service”, an original idea about serving “the mickey” to our clientele, sets us apart in daring to do things that no one does… “one of a kind ideas” we like to say… Annual Christmas ugly-sweater parties and the anniversary summer patio bash where we set up dunk tanks and massive blow up gorilla’s on the patio to raise money for the “Children’s Hunger Fund” are some of the ways we say thanks to those who call Brooklynn home all year round… It’s all of you that allow us to bring these ideas to life, and we believe that our welcoming manors throughout the entire Brooklynn staff will show you how thankful we are to have you.

Brooklynn has a decent size patio that runs along Northcote Ave. It’s mostly used for going out for a smoke and is almost always packed on summer nights when the freaks come out. There are tables and bench seating for sitting and enjoying cheap(ish) drinks if you’re lucky enough to grab a spot.
