Road Closures & Patio Expansions

As you may be aware, the city has closed several streets in the market to allow businesses to enlarge their patios and increase their capacity. We wholeheartedly support this for our fellow businesses and welcome the patios & potential foot traffic after months of temporary closures. Access will now be limited to a small pathway between the two patios of The Dominion Tavern & The 27 Club. These patios extend 12+ feet into the middle of York.

For reference, the city has closed:⁣⁣⁣⁣

  • William between George & York;⁣⁣⁣
  • Clarence between Parent & Dalhousie
  • ByWard Market Square between York & Clarence
  • The north side of York, between ByWard Market Square & Sussex⁣⁣⁣⁣

The road closures will run until the end of patio season this fall. Parking garages can be found across from our store with entrances on George and York. We recommend planning in advance as you can no longer park directly in front of our store. We have zero control over this and truly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you on your visits/pickups.

As we navigate our new normal, we ask for your patience, kindness & understanding. Should you have any questions regarding these measures or would like further information, please email us and you'll hear from us within 48-72 hours.
