Drive through untouched rural Ontario to the town of Grand Valley, where the 1892 schoolhouse has been restored as Grand Spirits Distillery, a sparkling toast to the region’s bootlegging past. Try and buy its schoolhouse-made spirits. Savour a vintage cocktail. Dine on masterful local fare. Enjoy live entertainment. There’s nothing like Grand Spirts anywhere.

Prohibition made Ontario dry — and Grand Valley famous. A century after trainloads of merrymakers would swarm our tiny town in search of its smoothly illicit Grand Valley Gold whisky, you can do the same with Grand Spirits’ whiskies, gins and other soul-quenching delights. This time, legally.
Certified Chef de Cuisine Martin Kouprie of fabled Toronto restaurant Pangaea helms the Grand Spirits kitchen. A farm to-table pioneer and acclaimed cheesemaker, Martin’s goal is to put Headwaters’ remarkably vast fare and hyper-local cuisine on the map. Come help him.
Speakeasy culture and the art and science of distilling combine in our generous cocktail menu, an experience you’ll want to stay after school for. All the classics are here, as well as spirit samplings and an Absinthe ritual, in a setting aglow with history.
Our live entertainment, served fresh and new weekly, is as distinctive as everything else GrandSpirits: up-and-coming musical artists, old-school magicians, throwback standards and much more.

Talk of the Town

What People are Saying

“It's magical”

"This came as a total surprise to me. I never thought that I would ever see a restaurant of this caliber and Grand Valley. The atmosphere is reminiscent of an establishment I would see in Toronto, London, or New York... Not Grand Valley. I loved every moment of my visit. From the wonderful hostess wearing a flapper dress, to the gorgeous bartender plying his trade, to the Exquisite menu, this 1920s -30s themed restaurant is to die for. I will be returning again and again. I want to try everything on the menu. The atmosphere makes me want to stay for hours. The next time I go, I might just do that. Maybe the bartender will have a wonderful concoction waiting just for me. You never know in a place like that. It's magical."

“Amazing”

"This place is amazing! Not only is the food some of the best we have EVER had, the service is second to none! We had been once before, about 2 months prior, and the amazing Brittany remembered not only us, but what we liked to drink - right down to ice on the side! Then the ever amazing Jamie, recognized us and greeted us with open arms! This is how service should be! This is what will keep us coming from an hour away, time and time again!  Telling everyone we know and even those we don’t know how awesome this place is!"

Toni.

“Spectacular night”
