The Rosedale neighbourhood has a brand new martini bar called Le Tigre, located in a historic building above a piano store. Walking in, the vibes are cool but warm at the same time with a smooth pink quartz bar top, tiger motifs throughout, and pink and green neon lights that bounce off the stone walls to cover the entire bar in color.
The design of the space was inspired by the bars in London’s Mayfair neighborhoud with a focus on a softer design to make it feel the opposite of Cry Baby.
Their menu has a stunning lineup of 10 different cocktails with names like Dirty Dancing and Ashley Madison that call to mind a sexy vibe, but there’s an emphasis on martinis of which Le Tigre has six varieties, all served cold. Espresso, which saw a renaissance last year, the classic Dirty with the accoutrements, Lychee with lychee agave, Tiger Style with vermouth and Japanese bitters, Mint with rum, white vermouth, and dry sherry, and Alaska with yellow Chartreuse and creme de cacao.
Expect the vibe to be classy and classic with a modern twist that can be noticed in the warm tiger motifs and lush plants. Cheers and we’ll see you there.
Tuesday – Saturday from 5pm
