Toronto restaurants and bars you can pick up booze from

Dec 10 2020, 1:50 pm

With the pandemic putting financial pressure on Toronto’s restaurants and bars, supporting local can’t be stressed enough. Offering more than just food, some spots are now selling alcohol for takeout, pick-up, or delivery.

It’s important to note that according to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of¬†Ontario, if you plan to place a takeout or delivery order for booze from a restaurant, you must order food along with it. So depending on where you order from, you might need to order a snack or two.

Here’s a list of local restaurants and bars in Toronto that offer takeout, pick-up, or delivery service for booze.
