Cocktail Bar
Our concept here is simple: we are a classic cocktail bar that does all of the little things perfectly. From our glassware, to our ice, the fresh ingredients, and finally our bar team. Everything is in place to make you the best version of your favourite cocktail.

This concept earned us the title of 32nd best bar in Canada. Our new two part menu features original creations by both current and former Sidecar bartenders as well as their favourite classics.

We are located in the basement at Mati. (19+)

    Sidecar continues to be my go-to spot for a delightful evening. The seafood tower never disappoints, and the cocktails are top-notch. Our server was not only informative but also added a perfect touch of sass and flare, making our night of catching up with an old friend even more enjoyable. Highly recommend for a fun and delicious experience!

    Great food, drinks, & service! Feels like a spot you’d find in NYC - a bit pricey for cocktails but 10/10 worth every penny!

    Quality food at high prices. Service didn’t match the price: sticky glasses, wine recommendations were lacking. Not top 100.

    Our experience was singular but I do think it needs attention specifically considering our new year’s eye evening cost us over $400. Upon arriving, we were seated right beside 2 girls (the only table with guests). Right away they started talking to us despite us saying we were on a date. Let me remind you, there were 12 other tables that were free, and most table weren’t taken during our whole seating which was about 3 hours. As the dinner service progressed, the girls were getting drunk. They started throwing stuff at each other (napkins, fruits from their drinks, lemon wedges) which flew at our table (my fiancé got lemon wedges and dirty napkins thrown at him twice). At some point they were belching OUT LOUD too. There was also a staff member who kept coming to see them to flirt with them. In a sense it encouraged them to keep going, they were getting attention. We tried our best to ignore them but it was difficult. Having worked in restaurants myself for over 10 years, I was surprised none of the staff asked them to leave or move our table. Their behaviour affected our experience. Otherwise, the food was great and the waitress who brought us our food was good too. I’d love to have opportunity to talk to the Mati/Sidecar owners as this should’ve been noticed and addressed.
