Martini lovers, listen up! If you’re looking to get lit on a budget, but also don’t want to wander into your nearest dive, I have the place for you. Hey Lucy Toronto is offering $5 martinis on Wednesday nights and the flavours are endless.
Located on King Street West, this food joint not only offers amazing dishes but also has a rooftop patio that is perfect for those evening refreshments.
The space is decorated with twinkling lights and tons of greenery. If you can block out the noises of the city, you can even feel like you’re on your own mini vacation.
If I’m being completely honest, this is a restaurant that I go to for the food. (Rare, I know) The butternut squash ravioli is the best dish my taste buds have ever witnessed. Don’t even get me started on the dessert.
However, the cheap drinks are also a win if you head to this eatery on the right days. Every Wednesday, the bar offers martinis for $4.99, and there are nearly 20 different flavours to choose from.
If you have a sweet tooth, you can try out their Caramilk Martini, which includes Polar Ice Vodka, Carolans Irish Cream, McGuiness Creme de Caco and Philips Butter Ripple Schnapps.
Of course, if you’re looking for something a bit more traditional, you can also lay your hands on Manhattan or Classic.
Other flavours include Cherry Blast, Lemon Drop, Big Apple, and Swedish Berry.
If you aren’t a martini lover, the bar also offers $4.99 Wine Thursdays, where you can snag select glasses of vino for cheap.
Of course, they also have a variety of cocktails as well. Last time we were at this venue I tried out the Lavender Margarita.
If you aren’t a fan of tequila, this might not be the right drink for you. But for me, it was so good that I even ended up ordering a second.
