Toronto’s Bar Volo will close this September. Bar Volo, a destination for craft beer lovers will serve its last beer in September. The news of the bar closing was delivered yesterday (May 10) through their Facebook page
After serving up craft beers in Toronto for 28 years, the family run bar will close its doors for good in September. Bar Volo will make way for a 44-foot storey condominium building.
The bar, which was founded by Ralph Morana and is run by his sons Tomas and Julian, began as a southern Italian restaurant and gradually evolved into one of the most recognized destinations for craft beer in Canada. The bar itself didn’t begin to specialize in beer until about 15 years ago.
So why not head to Bar Volo one last time? – You never know what you might find on tap, or what kind of one-off beer that they might have waiting for you.
The bar shows off 26 rotating regional beers, wines and ciders on tap, along with six traditional cask-conditioned ales and a rare-bottle beer selection.
Tomas Morana recently spoke with the Toronto Star saying that he and his brother are looking for a new location nearby so that Volo’s tradition can carry on.
“We’ve been a staple there for 28 years, so our goal is to stay in that area,” he said.
