Bar Hopping in Hillcrest Village

We’ve gone on and on about the best pizzerias in Hillcrest Village – something we’re confident that residents at The Nest will love! For our next post in the series, we’re divulging some top secret information: the best bars/pubs in the area.

Here’s where we think you should go for drinks after a long work day, or just a place to catch up with your friends:

The Crest


The Crest offers a great atmosphere to just come with a few pals and enjoy a few good drinks. They have a great wine list, as well as some neighbourhood-centric drinks like the Wychwood Fashion and The Hillcrest, which may just be our favourites! They also have quite the beer selection, both on tap and in bottles (or caps, as they like to call them). They’re also always showing the latest sporting event, so be sure to check out when the NHL/NBA season starts up again. Their food is also really good – try the Hillcrest Burger!=

The Crest is located at 794 St Clair Avenue West.



A neighbourhood favourite, Ferro has been established and family-operated since 1993. It used to be a former billiards hall, which the Pronesti family played on when redecorating. It’s a fun place to go for drinks and some good Italian food with your friends. The Pronesti family loves to interact with their customers and are always seen in the restaurant with very welcoming personalities. They have an extensive wine list and cocktails for you to choose from, give the The Root of All Evil a shot!

Ferro is located at 769 St Clair Avenue West.

Wychwood Pub


The former Legends Bar & Eatery, Wychwood Pubs is THE friendly neighbourhood pub. If you’re looking for a big meal, then stick to Ferro or the Crest, Wychwood Pubs only has the standard (still delicious) pub fare. They have awesome daily specials though, including Welly Wednesdays which gets you a pound of wings for only $6.99 and pints of their lager for $6.25.

Wychwood  is located at 517 St Clair Avenue West.
