BAR KOUKLA

88 OSSINGTON AVE

Start your evening sipping natural Greek wine + shucked oysters

Select bottles from our natural Greek wine list and fresh PEI oysters are half price weekday afternoons from 4-6pm. 

We’re changing up our hours of operation as the cooler months roll in. Our kitchen is open Wednesday through Sunday from 4pm-11:30pm, with brunch Saturday + Sunday from 11am. You’ll begin to see subtle changes to our meze, wine + cocktail menus as seasonal changes to our locally + Aegean-sourced produce takes shape. 

Our heated patio will remain open as long as the weather allows alongside indoor dining for vaccinated patrons.

Bar Koukla is an Aegean-inspired meze + wine bar located in Toronto’s famed west end. The younger, more rebellious sibling to our original Ossington 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.
