Petty Cash Social House sits on the border of two of Toronto’s most lively neighborhoods, King and Queen West. Proclaiming itself “one of the best parties in Toronto,” Petty Cash Social House is all about creating a fun environment where guests can enjoy great music, drinks, share comfort food-oriented appetizers, or indulge in one of their gourmet entrees. Their goal is to make every patron feel like a VIP when walking through their doors.
The 150-seat interior of Petty Cash is decked out in loads of greenery and neon while giving off a retro/industrial type vibe. For example, the recreation room accent wall displays about 2,400 colorful cassette tapes accenting the graffiti-like stickers covering the pool table. Also, much of the bar area is covered by creative murals created by local artists.
The neighborhood social house takes great pride in its menu. Some of their most popular dishes include coconut shrimp, tuna poke, and mushroom tacos. Of course, they also serve up some excellent bar food, such as nachos, buttermilk wings, and burgers. Featuring a quarter-pound chuck patty, the 'Not-So Petty Burger' is topped with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and a lovely secret sauce.
When it comes to drinks, there’s something for everyone. A handful of major beer brands are served, including Heineken on tap. Both California and British Columbia wines are served by the glass. Creative cocktails include the Pineapple Zaddy and Abrahamdrinkin’ which is made up of Tanqueray gin, lime, cucumber, and basil.
