The old architecture of the building & low rent, plus the many drinks enjoyed at Sweaty Betty’s & Communists Daughter

 What changes have you seen on Ossington since your business has been here?

Gentrification, lots of new & lost neighbors
Condos and a huge spike in retail lease rates

How do you see your business and Ossington five years from now?

We now offer full authentic Mexican meals Wednesday-Saturdays and that could go 7 days a week in 2017
A possible full time expansion to the private bar next door:  tequila & good music seems a compelling combination
I also see more condos & bland retail added on Oz  but enough good ones to keep it kool
