If you can’t make it down to the salon, call ahead and they’ll send one of their stylists to you. Celebrity clients have even flown owner, Beni Sicilia, to Cannes to work his magic on their locks. How’s that for a loyal clientele? Blo heralds itself as North America’s âoriginalâ blow dry bar and they have seven shops in Toronto alone.
Choose your look off their style menu, with options ranging from the âred carpetâ to âexecutive sweet,â there’s a âdo for everyone. They even guarantee you’ll be out the door within 30 minutes, so even the worst bad hair days can be vanquished on your lunch hour.
They definitely try to imitate or at least pay homage to some of the big names in the cocktail biz by recreating their drinks. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite cocktail bar ever or even in the top 10, but the outdoor patio, kind service, and interior design were top notch and that’s worthy of an extra star. Was this review â¦?
One of my favourite cocktail bars in Toronto. The cocktails are always made with quality and service has always been great. I’ve been here about 5 times now in the last 2 years and have never had a bad experience. This is a great date spot on a non Fri/Sat if you are looking to have good conversation but weekends are busy so be prepared to wait!
Yes, the cocktails are great and yes, the ambiance is cozy and romantic and cool.
Definitely worth it though. Was this review â¦? Yes, the cocktails are great and yes, the ambiance is cozy and romantic and cool. Cocktail Bar DOES NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS! That’s just not right. I hope Cocktail Bar will consider changing this outdated and rather stingy practice.
