There is something for everyone at Parts & Labour (1566 Queen Street West, Toronto). The multicoloured back bar and light fixtures made of halved fire extinguishers will make you feel like you are in a post-modern art piece. One look at the menu will bring you right back to the here and now. The food is at once creative and familiar. Hearty salads and rich plates will get you what you need on any given night out.
Parts & Labour General manager Chantelle Gabino’s cocktail menu is a true show of creativity. After having competed in almost any competition she can get her name into, Chantelle works tirelessly to involve any possible ingredient in her drinks.
For the Bartender Atlas Toronto Bar Hop on Tuesday, November 15th, Chantelle gives us The Repo Man. This cocktail includes Tromba Reposado Tequila shaken with Aperol, Punt E Mes, lemon juice, oak aged bitters and a ginger compote. This rich and juicy sour will wake up your taste buds and make you feel like a $50,000 Porsche.
