Every neighbourhood needs a reliable watering hole. Mr Scruff's fits the bill nicely. Like Dr Morse and Vic Bar a suburb over, it aims for the fertile ground between pub, bar and club, offering something for everyone along the way.
Scruff's has cheap eats covered with its daily specials, such as on Wednesdays, when locals pay half price for food, or Saturdays, when a burger and a beer is just $12. But any day is a good one to indulge in bar snacks such as edamame with chilli salt, soft pretzels and duck meatballs. Larger dishes include tacos, burgers, and poutine chips, with nothing costing more than $11.
The drinks list is short and doesn't mess around with craft beers or orange wines – that's not Scruff's style. Vibe is the key here, with an airy beer garden ready to receive you out back, and an intimate dance floor. DJs spin funk, soul and hip-hop every weekend.
