While we've written about how a major Canadian chain now offers customers the option of veganizing their pizzas, Toronto is already known for having a 100% vegan pizza shop: Apiecalypse Now!
At all the VegFests I have attended, it is always their booth that is the most crowded, packed with the most intimidating lines, and a quick glance at the shop's menu will make anyone understand why. With pizza options like BBQ Buffalover and The Fat Mac (with 8 dipping sauces!), snack/side options including vegan poutine and jalapeno poppers, and desserts like soft serve ice creams, doughnuts (fancy and non-fancy) and deep fried "marz" bars, Apiecalypse Now! can't seem to get any better than it already is.
Until now. According to a recent Facebook post, the Apiecalypse Now! team have been secretly setting up another project called FuBar, an "all vegan hoser dive-y bar and venue," located right above the restaurant:
"TIME TO LET THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG (because why was there a cat in a bag?) starting Tuesday, we will be SOFT opening our brand new bar!!! FuBar Toronto at Apiecalypse Now (AN ALL VEGAN ALL HOSER METAL BAR) is our baby we have been working on in secret for a little over a year. Upstairs from our regular restaurant on Bloor, it has 26 seats for people to EAT IN STORE, and eventually we will have it running as a full bar (this summer) with entirely vegan beers and cocktails, as well as a bar snacks menu in the evenings and slightly extended hours! WE ARE SO EXCITED TO START THIS NEW CHAPTER!"
The soft opening of FuBar will take place all of March, open from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 4pm to 10pm at 735 Bloor Street West, and people can already get vegan beers in addition to the delicious food and snacks available at the restaurant.
