Toast is a wine bar that has recently opened up on John Street North in downtown Hamilton. Toast has filled Hamilton’s “wine bar gap” perfectly – beautifully decorated, great menu selection, excellent service, well priced, and it fits anyone’s taste.
The owners, Christine and Sara (who became friends through working together at Bread Bar so you know you can expect great service and quality from these two), have done an awesome job with their wine bar.
Toast is a very Instagram-worthy (#nofilter necessary) spot with its exposed brick, tasteful art and simple chic decor – not to mention the great light in the evening from the west facing windows at the bar which create a bright, yet cozy spot to relax. The beautiful presentation of both the food and drink tops off the whole experience.
I really enjoyed the featured wine flight options which are a perfect way to sample a collection of wines and expand your list of favourites.
Along with their wine, cocktails, and craft beer, Toast serves light fare including warm olives, toasted nuts, meat and cheese boards, small shared plates, and toast!
To make the space even more enjoyable, they will occasionally have live music so be sure to check out their Twitter and Instagram to keep up-to-date on events and specials.
On that note, keep in mind that this summer you can join Toast for Sangria Tuesdays!
It’s exciting to have a place like Toast open up along John Street. I know we all love seeing these beautiful buildings filling in with new spots. Hamilton’s revitalization is booming and we are benefiting!
