Welcome to Bar Koukla, an Aegean-inspired meze + wine bar located on Ossington Ave in Toronto’s famed west end. The younger, more rebellious sibling to our original outpost Mamakas Taverna, Koukla’s open a little later, the music’s a little louder, yet our interpretation of contemporary Greek style offers the same unrivalled authenticity.
