Canvas Bar by Bombay Sapphire Gin
November 1 @ 6:00 pm - November 30 @ 11:59 pm
Bombay Sapphire Gin presents ‘Canvas Bar’. It’s the first- ever interactive cocktail bar where guests can enjoy DIY drinks and play the role of master mixologist. The pop-up located at 950 Queen St. W. in Toronto, is open to the public Thursdays through Sundays until November 30th. It’s hosted by the most imaginative bartenders from across North America.
Designed to inspire creativity, ‘Canvas Bar’ invites guests to customize their own Bombay Sapphire Gin cocktails using the glass as a canvas. The space will house a mixing wall of vapour-infused tonic jars with Bombay Sapphire’s essential botanicals. We’re encouraging guests to enhance drinks by misting, spritzing and garnishing. Bar patrons can also choose from a selection of unique cocktails crafted by different world class mixologists every week.
