Few Toronto bars are more iconic than "The Caddy", famed as Parkdale's "rockabilly central" with live music, lively service and a "huge" heated patio; the "'50s-themed" interior sports a "nostalgia-inducing" look defined by rock-star swag and leopard-print banquettes, and you can't miss the Cadillac mounted on the front facade.
I've been to the Cadillac Lounge many times to grab a pint and chill on their huge back patio, but it wasn't until recently that I sampled the food. The occasion? It was their 6th year anniversary party, but that was just coincidental. It also happened to be around dinner time and my friends and I were all famished. I opted for the vegetarian curry ($8.95) and what arrived was a huge plate of... more
Far-Flung but Well Visited
The first thing youll notice upon pulling up to the Caddy is the Cadillac fused above the bars storefront.

Was really not impressed with the server here on my last visit on a midweek afternoon. She had a sour look on her face and a very cold and unwelcoming demeanour.

A silly place to have a couple of drinks with friends and get on stage and sing without worrying about being booed!
Good environment, busy on a Saturday night but a nice place that brings out all kinds of people.
Worst service ever! Got takeout there's nachos and wings and the food was not the greatest my nachos basically plain with cheese and jalapeños nothing else! Wings were dry and no sauce! Basically it's like they didn't care! Very disappointed!
This casual Elvis and rockabilly-themed bar has recently doubled its size and widened its stage, continuing to pump out some of the finest country and roots music nights around. When summertime comes, the massive back patio (seats 200) is always packed with large groups of pitcher-drinking Parkdalers or locals cashing in on the cheap drinks and eats.
A popular name when it comes to live entertainment and clubbing, Cadillac Lounge is the place to be. Featuring the largest patio bar in Toronto, it brings together popular local and international names under one roof. The concerts and live music events here are simply great and fill the room with fun and revelry. The bar serves the usual fare which is simple and delicious, so if you are tired... more
