You can also amuse yourself by playing a game or two of table-soccer or foosball with your friends. Definitely one of the best places to unwind after work!

WOLF AND FOX GASTROPUB
Fans of the English culture will love Wolf & Fox. You can find this fascinating place amidst the BGC condos and offices at Two Parkade.

One of the most astounding beer spots in the Metro, The Brewery just opened last year. Upon entering this place for the first time, you might feel like you’re entering a laboratory because of the several large pipes and machines inside. This is because The Brewery actually makes the beer that they serve! Inside, the vibe is lively yet calm despite the fact that this place is by some BGC condo for sale. If you like to hang out and converse with your friends after a long day of work, The Brewery is perfect for you.
