Boozeless Cocktails

Posted by Drake, 1 year, 2 months ago

Treat yourself to a crafted seasonal drink that won’t give you a hangover. This summer, our talented mixology team is shaking and stirring refreshing boozeless cocktails that are just as tasty as their alcoholic counterparts. Sit under the sun on a patio, in the cool air conditioned confines of the Lounge or enjoy the warm starlight nights with a summery Blackberry Bramble (orange flower water, muddled blackberries and lemon juice, $7), classic Lavender Lemonade (lavender syrup and lemonade, $7), thirst-quenching Raspberry Mint Lemonade (muddled raspberries, mint and lemonade, $7) or recall your childhood with a retro Root Beer Float (Boylan’s root beer and Boreal root beer gelato, $6). Check out our full menu after the jump.

Racks & Bands - CanCon Mix (Drake Blog Premiere)

Posted by Shannon Elizabeth Murphy, 1 year, 2 months ago

With so many amazing parties landing in our Underground, it's hard to pick a favourite. That being said, our hip-hop monthly, Racks & Bands, featuring the sounds of Johnny Hockin and Vanity Muscles is something that we always look forward to.

For Canada Day, in celebration of the tremendous amount of talent that has emerged from across the nation, Racks & Bands presents a special mix: CanCon. CanCon used to be a term designating the necessary number of Canadian tracks in a radio or television. But recently, CanCon has become embedded in popular culture across the world as our talent find its way onto major recordings.

These are some of the best jams out. They just happen to be Canadian.

Enjoy the exclusive premiere of their mix + be sure not to miss the next Racks & Bands party on July 12!
