The Dray is a beer bar/coffee shop that’s an excellent place to hang out. The whole place has maybe two dozen seats, it’s made entirely out of reclaimed wood, there’s always a soccer game on, and amidst the taps, rogue bottles of wine, and little baggies of Tim’s chips is also an espresso machine. It’s the closest thing you’ll get to drinking in a treehouse, and you could just as easily hang out with your laptop and a cappuccino as you could catch up with your crew over IPAs during happy hour. The draught picks are a great mix of familiarity and “huh, what’s that?,” and they also have a tiny oven for making flatbread pizzas and mini grilled cheeses.
