After the Symposium is The After Party


How could we possibly fit all of that Terroir fun into one day? Answer: We can’t! After the Symposium, we continued the good times at The Walrus Pub & Beer Hall right in the heart of downtown Toronto.

We can’t say enough about this venue and its owners, The Donnelly Group.

They’ve created a proper pub that has us salivating at their many craft beers on tap, classic & unique cocktails and tasty food with a modern twist. And if that’s not enough, they’ve created a modern, progressive space that is perfect for any occasion, complete with pool table, shuffle board and live music!


With Chef Rory McGouran at the helm, we were delighted by the array of snacks that we got to indulge in. Here's just a taste of the elevated pub bites we tried:

  • Chickpea Fried Squid with Tobiko Spicy Mayo & Candied Lemon Gremolata
  • Ontario Beef Tartar on Crostini
  • Mushroom Toast
  • Smoked Salmon Rillettes with Horseradish Fermented Cream, Pickled Shallot and Everything Bagel Crumble

Similar to their location on Ossington Avenue, The Walrus will soon be opening a Barber & Co alongside a ping pong bar & cafe beneath the pub in early June. So much room for activities!

If you didn’t get a chance to stop by for The After Party, we urge you to hit Bay Street for an after-work cocktail and snack!
