The Loose Moose Restaurant Review

: This downtown sports bar serves up large portions of innovative pub grub perfect for game day appetites, weekend lounging or pairing with after-work cocktails. Chef Matt Rosen’s menu includes items such as the fried goat cheese salad with figs and the avocado and back bacon sandwich on focaccia. There’s a full array of starters as well, apropos for sharing with friends. The mega-size, uniquely shaped bar features two peninsulas and carries over 50 different beers on tap. Beyond the mainstream favorites, craft beers rule with the likes of Spearhead Moroccan Spiced Ale and Sawdust City Lone Pine IPA. Undecided drinkers may opt for three-ounce samplers. You'll also find a variety of innovative cocktails, such as the “Cloak & Dagger,” which includes Guinness with vanilla vodka, Kahlúa and a shot of espresso. The Canadian-invented “Caesar” is offered in three different versions, and it sells for only $3 on Sundays. This quirky bar is located within walking distance of both the Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre sporting and entertainment complexes, and it's directly above The Antler Room live music venue.
