Step back into the ‘60s and ‘70s at Yardsale Bar — the newest kid on the Gerrard block that pays homage to the past.

Launching in the former space of Sugar Loaf Bakery at the corner of Jones, the retro cocktail den features a menu of signature, throwback and classic cocktails served in vintage-style glassware.

Sip on something more traditional or check out one of their original creations in a mid-century themed space. Drinks are paired with Spanish-influenced tapas-style dishes.

Its website calls the essence of the space as “Mad Men-meets-your-uncle's-basement vibe” with beanbag chairs and lava lamps backed by a ‘60s and ‘70s soundtrack.

Yard Sale Bar is now open at 1062 Gerrard St. E. Check out yardsalebar.com for more information.

Brandon’s has mid-century modern decor, vinyl records supplying the tunes, and a menu of classic cocktails served in vintage-style glassware. In other words, it’s exactly the kind of place where we would expect to see a Midge Maisel type at the table next to us working on some new jokes. But if you want to slip into this dimly lit retro drinking den, you’ll need to know where to find it–and when.

As storefronts continue to close on Queen, more and more businesses are drawn to the cheaper rents on Gerrard. The next up-and-comer: Yardsale Cocktail Bar.

Going into the former space of Sugar Loaf Bakery at the corner of Gerrard and Jones, Yard Sale Bar is set to launch in June with retro cocktails and a menu of shareable plates.
