CKTL & Co.’s cocktail program is led by mixologist and beverage manager John Ko. The cocktail menu puts a modern, financial spin on the traditional with classic “Old Money” and signature “Initial Product Offering” cocktails to “Counterfeit” mocktails. Many of their carefully selected tinctures, bitters, and syrups are made in-house and presented to impress. CKTL & Co.’s “Manhattan Menu” features classic and contemporary takes on the Manhattan, including their Black Market, with housemade coffee liqueur presented in a smokey treasure chest, and the Toronto-centric Bay Street, featuring rye, sweet vermouth, amaro, and angostura bitters.

Alongside the cocktails, CKTL & Co. offers an impressive beer and wine selection available on tap. The food menu is globally inspired and locally sourced, featuring standout appetizers and entrees such as Tuna Nachos and Grilled Lamb Chop. CKTL & Co.’s from-scratch fare ensures each transaction is a treat.
