Bar Volo is a family owned beer bar located in the heart of Toronto’s city centre on Yonge St. Opened in 1985 by Ralph Morana as a Southern Italian restaurant, Volo has slowly evolved into one of the most recognized destinations and institutions for craft beer in the country. The bar features twenty six rotating regional beers, wines and ciders on tap along side six traditional cask-conditioned ales and a rare bottle beer selection. The food is primarily locally sourced, inspired by Southern Italian Spuntini ("Snacks") and Spanish style tapas. Bar Volo is also behind North America’s largest cask-condtioned ale festival “Cask Days” and beer importing company “Keep6 Imports".  Proprietor: Ralph Morana, Beverage Manager & Cellarman: Tomas Morana, General Manager: Julian Morana
