The Citizen

Located in the heart of King West, The Citizen is a neighbourhood hangout that takes you back in time to when great food was approachable, mixologists were called bartenders and everyone in the joint knew your name.

The Citizen is where you can enjoy classic dishes, contemporary bar snacks and craft cocktails in comfortable surroundings that pay tribute to the grand restaurant-bars of the 1930s.

Executive Chef Jason A. Robins, a burgeoning talent in Toronto’s food scene, is guided by a simple philosophy: if food is made with love, guests will always be happy. Robins blends his fresh take on local ingredients with his Tap-to-Table practice of using craft beer to create unique and satisfying flavours.

Celebrating Toronto’s heritage, The Citizen features numerous vintage design elements such as the original beams from Gooderham and Worts. The result is old school charm paired with digital convenience, including complimentary Wi-Fi, phone-charging stations, and numerous television screens so you can always keep score.

The Citizen is where King West feels at home. It’s a comfortable place to catch the game, hang out on the patio, enjoy a cozy dinner for two, or party late into the night with all your friends.
