YSPC Then & Now: The Duke Gloucester

The Duke of Gloucester is the kind of no-nonsense pub that doesn’t give a toss about ‘gimmicky’ drinking events like the Yonge Street Pub Crawl.

Tucked away above an Indian restaurant, its entrance obscured by the glare from the Panasonic Theatre’s marquee, the DofG is a well-worn local. The regulars who dominate its bar look like they greatly appreciate their watering-hole’s lack of accessibility and always seem a bit ruffled when a boisterous group of unknowns charge up the stairs.

Last year the YSPC finally cracked the DofG’s gruff exterior and managed to get a staff member to pose for the bar-front photo.
