Welcome to Against the Grain Urban Tavern - Leaside
Against The Grain Urban Tavern is now bringing urban chic to Leaside! This stunning new location, at 85 Laird Avenue, is set in the heart of Leaside Village. In these ideal surroundings, Against The Grain invites you to relax and enjoy spectacular hospitality close to home.
Against The Grain is a casual urban tavern where people gather to enjoy maple chipotle baked wings with a local brew, pulled pork braised in dark beer and molasses, stone-baked flatbreads and traditional cocktails with a twist. Everything is served with sophistication and flair.
Unique local and European brews are tapped regularly here, along with interesting new and old-world wines. And of course we can’t forget the cocktails, including our own signature “Against the Grain” made with Canadian whiskey.
Against The Grain’s décor boasts rough fir wood, leather banquettes, a warm dark-wood bar with antique metal accents and a stunning wood-granite countertop. The bar area, highlighted by communal high-top and banquette seating, is warmed by a beautiful staircase leading to a second floor for additional seating and group events. This level, which sports its own conversation-friendly bar, opens up into a comfortable rooftop patio overlooking the Leaside community. On the roof, a large fireplace, patio heaters and an abundance of comfortable seating are sheltered by beautiful Tuuci umbrellas. The result is a beautiful, lively urban retreat.
