Reds Wine Tavern has upped its game following a recent revamp. With Top Chef Canada’s Ryan Gallagher stepping into the kitchen, and a décor do-over adding conversation-prompting wooden tables and eye-catching chandeliers, the restaurant has shrugged off its slightly stuffy past.

Drink This: the maple bacon bourbon Manhattan from Reds Wine Tavern

Reds Wine Tavern has upped its game following a recent revamp. With Top Chef Canada’s Ryan Gallagher stepping into the kitchen, and a décor do-over adding conversation-prompting wooden tables and eye-catching chandeliers, the restaurant has shrugged off its slightly stuffy past. Though the locale is known for, um, wine (it does have over 350 types of wine at any given point), a cocktail menu — much like the shuffleboard table — keeps things interesting.

With a number of classic and signature tipples on offer, we couldn’t resist the maple bacon bourbon Manhattan ($10.50). Served over a single rock, the cocktail features house-made bacon-infused Bulleit bourbon, sweet vermouth and our province’s very own maple syrup to boot. A trio of bourbon-soaked cherries — also done in-house — and a garnish of maple sugar on the rim add the finishing touches to a drink fit for a Bay Street mad man.

Reds Wine Tavern, 77 Adelaide St. W., 416-862-7337
