The Black Bull Tavern, Toronto is a cross between a university and biker bar with plenty of Molson to go around. Located pretty much in the heart of Queen West AND they have a summer patio !!! The Black Bull is an Everyman joint where regulars hunch over their brews, sometimes mumbling not so quietly to themselves. The decor is determinedly dour, with brown banquettes and nondescript tables lurking below the usual beer paraphernalia.
Crightonism: I've been to the Bull a few times in my Queen West days on a night out and I've "rested" for an hour or so on the patio during a cross-town bike ride bicycle that is :) Day or Night the Black Bull is an interesting place, you never know when the next entertainer will walk through the door !
