"Amazing isn't strong enough of a word to describe this gorgeous bar. The passion and creativity of the chef is clear and present in every dish. This is why Founder shines. Did I say the décor is stunning? It's definitely a must visit for everyone visiting Toronto. You won't be disappointed."

"The team at Founder is awesome. Their fried chicken is the best in the city in my opinion. Their chef, Kendall, is awesome! The cocktails are god send. I hosted a dinner party there and was really blown away by the service provided by the whole team there."

★★★★★

Our cocktails are pretty damn good, too

"Cocktails are classically inspired with creative twists and textures – a pomegranate foam here, a palo santo perfume there – and lesser-known spirits like aquavit and calvados step into the spotlight."
