Job Description

Real Sports Bar and Grill is reopening as a new, split-purpose concept. No longer just a sports bar, the new RS is a culinary and entertainment destination offering two distinct spaces, each catering to a unique experience.

Leveraging 10 years of expertise as ESPN’s #1 sports bar in North America, ARENA is a sports haven that features Toronto’s largest screen, a DJ booth and a 100-foot bar. Experience the most thrilling match-ups played out on a supersized, 39-foot HD screen, broad casting every sport played on the pitch, court, field and ice. It’s by far the best place to watch sports outside of the stadium.

A whole new side of RS, RESTO offers an upscale lounge experience dedicated to quality food and entertainment. With a premium design, a 30-foot bar as a centerpiece, a stage dedicated to live music, a VIP room and private suites, RESTO is the ultimate place for a business lunch, an after-work get-together with friends or a weekend date. Conveniently located beside Scotiabank Arena in the heart of Toronto’s Sports and Entertainment district, RS caters to sports fans as much as music and entertainment fans. With a new, modern design featuring premium styles and materials, an upscale menu offering hand-selected, local and seasonal ingredients and a new atmosphere, RS is a unique take on the traditional sports bar.
