Communist’s Daughter

1149 Dundas St. W.
Toronto, Ontario, M6J, Canada
TEL: 647-435-0103

Hidden behind a narrow storefront in Little Portugal, this unassuming bar is marked by a large sign that reads Nazare Snack Bar (the building’s previous inhabitant) as well as a discreet chalkboard sign revealing the current name. As such, the clientele is largely limited to in-the-know locals. The small, dim interior is furnished with mismatched vintage furniture, old-fashioned photographs, and a popular jukebox playing jazz, indie, and rock music. A limited bar menu (think pickled eggs and a hummus plate) complements the short but well-selected beer and wine list. On weekends, live jazz and folk music is a major draw.

Insider Tip:

Record enthusiasts should check out the Monday night BYOV (Bring Your Own Vinyl) event; the DJ plays the A-side, and then the crowd votes on whether to play the B-side.
