This popular Toronto patio will host a series of food pop-ups all summer long


One of last summer’s most popular patio pop-ups is making a major comeback this year. Remember the spot serving cool summer vibes and even better eats and drinks? Yes, we’re talking Venice Beach Bar. The downtown location has ramped things up, for a new and improved experience open in Toronto right now.

The pop-up patio made major waves when it was first unveiled last year. The spot is the brainchild between two Toronto locations, Unboxed Market and Bar Mordecai. The aesthetics of the joint take inspiration from the famous Venice Beach in Los Angeles and great vibes it served all summer certainly matched.

Well, this year they’re mixing things up a bit. Don’t worry, they’ve still got that Venice Beach charm. But now they’re operating as a series of tasty food pop-ups. Instead of one set menu, you can stop by at different points throughout the summer to try eats from places all over town. Right now, the spot is running a pop-up featuring food from Preserve Indulgence -with delicious featured eats like oysters with blueberry caviar & champagne mignonette, cold noodles, dumplings, and more.

Venice Beach Bar will be open every Wednesday through Monday this summer from 3PM to 12AM. They only accept walk-ins, no reservations available, so be sure to stop by early to ensure you nab a seat.
