Towbar opened last night in case you didn't know, (which in the internet and smart phone age is almost impossible). They are serving up Big Shoulders coffee which is self serve with scones, fruit, granola bars, cupcakes, etc for breakfast. This is an even better place to grab a cup of coffee with the updated look which respects the history of the building and carries on the tradition instead of starting with a clean slate.
There was quite a crowd there last night having drinks having a jolly time (as it is BYOB) according to management. The official liquor license for Towbar is in the works and is expected to come through sometime in the fall. Towbar is located at 1500 W Jarvis Ave just steps from the Jarvis "L" stop. (Here is a link showing how the building looked while it was closed) Hours of operation for Towbar are from 7 am - 10 pm M-F and 9 am - 10 pm on Saturday and Sunday. They do serve lunch and dinner.
Bloggers note #1 - Goods For Less has recently vacated their space at the Jarvis Greenview minimall.
Bloggers note #2 - Towbar also mentioned that they are working on having a Bastille Day event at Jarvis square. The details are pretty sketchy at this time, it will be interesting to see how this turns out
