A must if you are in downtown Toronto for whatever reason. The Irish Lamb Stew is mind blowing. Nice atmosphere, very good music and plenty of screens for sport events

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

The Irish Embassy takes great pride in its dedication to a centuries-old tradition of hospitality unique to the Emerald Isle. This magnificently restored heritage site - one of Toronto's first banks - is now home to an enchanting Old World ambiance and standard of personal service and cuisine echoing a commitment to excellence without rival. Conveniently located in the heart of Toronto's financial district, the Irish Embassy is extraordinarily flexible in its multi-purpose design. Not only a warm and inviting setting for the after-work crowd and personal dining, it is recognized as one of downtown's most dynamic venues for upscale cocktail receptions, social celebrations and corporate gatherings.
