Notes on this pub crawl: the walk (4.6 km) takes about an hour in total or you can take the Queen Street streetcar and hop on and off. Keep in mind that Hitch and Castro’s Lounge are very small, so you might have trouble getting a seat unless you can make a reservation. TTC directions back to the subway are available on each pub’s individual review.
Notes on pub crawls in general: consider at least 45 minutes per pub visit and let your server know that you having just one drink and then moving on into the fizzy night so she/he knows that you’ll need your bill quickly. Pay by cash so you aren’t waiting for the credit card/debit machine and tip generously as you may be back one day for longer than just one drink. Check the pub’s website/Twitter (links in TorontoPubs review of establishment) in case they have an event that night. Also keep in mind the day and time, Saturday nights with the FIFA World Cup’s final on is not the best night for said pub crawl, but it is one of the best times to be in a pub.
