Don’t you just miss the days where you could go to your local video store and rent out the latest and greatest VHS tapes? This local Toronto bar is offering a VHS rental service with their bottle shop.

The excitement is almost nostalgic, especially for those who haven’t had their hands on a VHS tape for years.

Farside, located at 600 Gerrard Street East, offers membership-only VHS rentals as they shift their bar to sell their craft beers and bottled wines.

They also offer VCR rentals for those who threw their systems away years ago and want to feel the joy of watching their favourite films. Rentals include one VCR and three movies for a week.

They also have a long list of discount domestic beers, Ontario Craft sours, ciders and IPAs, and even cocktails.

Are you feeling a Comedy? Action? or a film that’ll shake you to your core? Farside offers an array of VHS tapes that’ll remind you of your childhood.

Grab a drink or two and catch a flick, but remember: Be kind and rewind.


Address: 600 Gerrard Street East
Hours: Friday to Sunday from 5 pm to 9 pm
