Off at 5, happy by 6
A review of some swanky spots
By Candice Woo

Out on Harbor Island, C Level Lounge‘s happy hour may be difficult to catch if you’ve got a 9-to-5 job since it ends at 5:30 p.m., but if you can play hooky, you’ll be rewarded with $5 appetizers including ahi tuna poke, fried calamari and a molten-centered, nut-crusted brie. A five spot will also get you a drink special, which varies throughout the week. Whiskey Wednesday is my favorite day, but Mojito Monday comes in a close second.

Toronto’s most authentic mojitos

Souz Dal
A teaspoon of sugar and a heaping of mint compete for attention, not unlike the cocktail crowd at this Little Italy hot spot. The bar aims for authenticity, but the mint is muddled with such enthusiasm that small pieces clog the straw. Souz Dal’s version ends up more candy than Cuban, but $5 Mojito Mondays can make for difficult Tuesday mornings nonetheless. $9. 636 College St., 416-537-1883, souzdal.com.
