BAR KOUKLA

88 OSSINGTON AVE

Natural, organic + biodynamic wine

Our Ossington meze + wine bar will be closed until further notice, in line with provincial restrictions.

Our Summer ‘Souvla’ initiative will be taking over the Koukla kitchen serving up fun Greek fare and street food favourites.

The bottle shoppe is back for the winter with a unique selection of wine and beer from bespoke vineyards and producers from every corner of Greece. Available for pick-up and delivery on Ambassador and Uber Eats or stop by 88 Ossington Ave and let us walk you through our list.

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.
