Rocky's is a great local hang out spot that frinds and I go to at least a handful of times a year when we get together as a group to talk, listen to some music. or just hang out on their great upper patio. In addition to the upper deck the layout includes the mid section seating area, a comfortable bar, and a smaller semi-detached front room with a pool table.
If you are looking for a comfortable and relaxed place to spend time with friends in the midtown area of Yonge and Eglinton you should definately consider meeting up at Rocky's. It is very casual and has a nice friendly feel which seems to come naturally because the owner, Anise, is super nice.
FYI, for spiring musicians, or music listeners, I believe Rocky's has an 'Open Mic' night on Thursdays.
The area has better for sure.
