Neighborhood: Queen West
This self-proclaimed “cocktail emporium” is one of the most eclectic and thorough barware shops I’ve found anywhere. Boasting great style and a hip, vintage-chic vibe, BYOB stocks everything from gold-plated cocktail stirrers (presented on fur rugs) and Japanese ice picks to porcelain conch shells from their sizable tiki section. There are ingredients, too, including tonic concentrates and a staggering variety of bitters. It’s a great spot to find funky souvenirs or stock a home bar with top-notch tools of the trade."
