Regulars Bar has a supercool eclectic decor, filled with nostalgia, delicious bar foods with a twist, and uniquely creative drinks. Located on the north-east corner of King and Bathurst — where Blowfish use to be. They have bi-weekly live music, and a DJ on most nights. Perfect for large groups, or a night out — beware of the long lineups on weekends, so arrive early.
Regulars Bar offers pub fare food including bar snacks with a unique twist that are all $6. From Truffle Poppers to Deep-Fried Mac and Cheese, these items are fun and delicious. They also offer a selection of salads, bowls, sandwiches, wraps, chicken and tenderloins.
This is a classic of any bar, but this Regulars Burger will sure hit the spot. With a prime rib patty, topped with candied bacon, onions, American cheese, pickles, and spicy “mac” sauce all inside a soft brioche bun. I doubt you could name a better duo than this delicious burger and fries combo.
Soba Noodle Bowl
This dish is perfect for the hot summer months. Filled with Asian vegetables, pickled ginger, fried tofu, toasted sesame, Szechuan peanuts, and Soya vinaigrette, this bowl is refreshing and filling. You also have the option to add a delicious grilled cajun chicken breast or oven-baked Atlantic salmon.
Don’t Forget Dessert…
This place has a list of unique cocktails that are all $15! If you love your tequila, try the “Thyme for Tequila” that has Cazadores Blanco Tequila, Aperol, Fresh Thyme, Pomegranate juice, and Lavender. This refreshing cocktail is perfect in the summer heat — especially for those days on their great new patio along Bathurst.
On Saturdays and Sundays, they brunch! Regulars Bar offers brunch from 11:30 am – 4:00 pm with $5 Caesars and Mimosas.
The inside of the restaurant will take your breath away. It’s definitely not your typical bar. This place was inspired by the gambling halls and casinos of the 1920s to Hollywood’s Golden Age eras. With installations from the world-renowned artist, Alejandro Monge, the interior of this place oozes creativity and vibrancy. When you walk in, you’ll be hit with pop art and fun neon signs, along with beautiful mismatched chandeliers, bright furniture, and stunning paintings. They also have a patio that runs along the Bathurst side of the building. Don’t forget to snap a shot with their huge pile of money, yup that’s right, Regulars has a whopping $1-million dollar bills in the corner of the first dining area to the right.
The VIBE of the bar changes depending on the day. Overall, Regulars Bar has a trendy and fun atmosphere with great staff and great drinks. This place draws more of a younger crowd due to the vibrant old-world glam and the live music and DJs. On weekends this bar transforms into more of a club vibe with good music to dance the night away. Be aware that this place is always bumpin’ so there might be lines at times! But don’t let that prevent you from having a good day.

A great new hotspot along King West for sure! Great eats, super fun decor, and a very lively well mixed group of people and entertainment. The perfect spot for a night out with some friends, your girls, or your boys. If you’re looking for something more “private” then you can look into getting into their new secret “members only” area.
