Gay Village
Rum Bar

Agrikol is a rollicking, art-filled restaurant-bar with an excellent rum-based cocktail menu and a satisfying short list of Haitian dishes (fried plantains, accras [fritters]) owned by Jenn Agg (the Toronto restaurateur behind Black Hoof and Grey Gardens), her husband, the artist Roland Jean, and Win Butler and Régine Chassagne of the band Arcade Fire. (They also run the sister bar next door, Ti-Agrikol). The two-story space sports a party vibe, with dancing and a rotating roster of DJs; come summer, the candle-lit terrace in the back becomes the heart of the party.
