Handy Guide to what’s open on Ossington for the holidays.

Screen Shot 2012-12-24 at 11.32.19 AMIt’s the time of year for many of the business owners and employees on the strip to head home and spend time with their families. A few are staying open so the rest of us can get out of our house and enjoy the neighbourhood. We put together this quick guide to what’s open and closed over the next few days. Some items to note:

  • Coffee on Chrismas day is going to be hard to find. Best to head to the new Starbucks at Queen.
  • If you want to escape the family on Christmas eve, the options are Opera Bobs until 10pm and Get Well bar (where you can show your visiting relatives some of our local craft beers)
  • Escape on Christmas day is a similar experience. Opera Bobs and Get Well Bar are open, although Get Well opens at 8pm.
  • The food options on Christmas day are limited to Lakeview, and Pho Tien
  • Boxing day has broader choices which also include Pizza Libretto and OddSoeul.
  • Crafted, Foxley, and Delux are taking the entire week off and open on January 2nd.

Our list is far from comprehensive. Let us know if you have more information to add and we will update the post.
