After The Iron Horse there is now a short walk up to the top of West Nile St and following the curve round cross over the main road and onto Port Dundas Road. At the next corner is The Station Bar return back to West Nile St and begin the journey down hill. Stay on the right hand pavement and turn right onto Renfrew St and in the middle of this block, on the right, is The Intermezzo. Return to West Nile St and cross over to go down the far side. Almost opposite The Iron Horse is Alfredo's. On the next long block down is The Courtyard. Two Corners down is All Bar One. Continue straight down to the end of West Nile St and cross over to Mitchell St and at the next lane corner there is Ross's Original Bar
