General info about The 56 Restaurant & Lounge

The restaurant and lounge at the The Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association, The 56 is the type of place where you might run into a friend you knew from the neighbourhood years ago or one you made just last week. We’re a hub and a hangout for the local and the newcomer alike.

Enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere, the community spirit, great prices, good eats, and a variety of options for entertainment.

The 56 is a full-service restaurant and lounge where you can order from our comprehensive menu, or catch up over a cocktail or a coffee.

The capacity of the room is 147, there are 8 televisions with the evening’s best games on, and we’ve got great billiard entertainment options, too. There’s also a jukebox with all your classic rock favourites on it!
