Figures is an upscale restaurant-lounge in Toronto that delights guests through a comics theme. The ambiance of the space is doused in an aesthetic that brings together the playful and edgy vibe of graphic novels with the ultra-luxe quality of premium cuisine. The establishment is also available for special events and bookings.

Open entry, one is hit by walls that boast decoupage-style comics and poetry. The playfulness of the visuals is lightly juxtaposed by the elegance in the furnishings — from the marble bar counter to the blue velvet banquettes. With about 150 styles of cocktails, the upscale restaurant-lounge also boasts a clever menu design where each category is announced within the narrative style of comic books. This includes the 'Exposition Starters,' the 'Climax Mains,' the 'Antagonist Bites' and the 'Resolution Dessert.'
