You might know it as Weslodge or you might know it as that place on King West with the big, bright yellow doors. Either way there’s no way you haven’t noticed this quaint, saloon inspired resto-lounge. I’ve been a few times moreso for drinks and to be honest, the menu never appealed to me. And so there I was trying to plan a night out and I came across Weslodge on my OpenTable app and decided to look into it. Low and behold the menu had been revamped and as I kept reading my mouth kept watering. I suggested it during a few of my dinner planning sessions and finally had takers with two girlfriends who love trying new places with me. They also have the same love for bubbles as I do 🙂
So after spending a short and over-rated Saturday evening at the One of a Kind Show we indulged with some pre-dinner bubbles and made our way to the big yellow doors. My favourite part of the night was knowing that I would be out of the area before the platform heels and “tops disguised as dresses” took over the streets.
Upon walking in you can’t help but be overtaken by the hustle and bustle of the place and how they’ve squeezed people in at every corner. Not my favourite thing especially since my seat was literally hit or bumped into EVERY time someone walked by. We were seated at one of the round tables near the back and our delightful waiter greeted us and took our order. Love the holsters they all wear as part of their uniform. If only there was way to get away with that in every day life.
