The Senator Winebar is an intimate, Parisian style bistro serving hearty, delicious comfort food that is rooted in the classics, along with a curated selection of privately imported wines. A brilliant roster of musicians highlighted by the resident Juno award winning blues pianist Julian Fauth and his guests, perform various genres every Friday and Saturday night; see full listings on our MUSIC page. The 24 seat room is on top of the original Senator and is outfitted with period furnishings including a 1920’s Prohibition era bar from Cleveland and a classic Heintzman upright piano.

The return of live music to the Senator has been welcomed by patrons who supported and loved the Top O’ the Senator - our internationally renowned jazz club - which flourished from 1991 until it closed in 2005 but we only have seating for 24 in our intimate Winebar which dates back to the 1860’s, so we highly recommend that guests make reservations to guarantee a table for dinner and then watch as the room transforms into an old-fashioned, late-night speakeasy with plenty of audience participation.
The resident artist at the Winebar is the Juno award winning blues pianist, Juian Fauth, who performs Fridays with a featured guest and on Saturday we showcase a wide range of artists in every genre - see listings below. The natural acoustics and sight lines are brilliant in this Parisian "boîte" and the Top O' the Senator is now truly back on top of the original Senator. Cover charges are typically $10 arriving before 9 P.M. $5 after 10 P.M and No Cover after 11 P.M.

Looking for a place for a special event?
Just look at the pictures in our Winebar Gallery and you will immediately realize why you need not look any further. Whether it's a business meeting, birthday or private party there is no other space in Toronto with such intimacy and historic charm. The Winebar is a fully self contained facility that comfortably seats 24 for a sit down dinner or a few more for cocktails and we will work with you to develop custom menus and services or book one of our artists if you are interested in live music to create a truly memorable event. We encourage you to reserve soon for the coming holiday season.
