Help us help Ukraine.
On February 24, 2022 Russia declared war on Ukraine. Since then, we have been doing as much as possible to help our country and our people. The owner, Mykhaylo has been in direct contact with soldiers and humanitarian aid groups in the Ternopil Oblast of Ukraine to find out what supplies are needed and we fund them. If you wish to donate, you can do so here. We also have a donation box inside the restaurant if you wish to donate cash. We want to thank everyone for their support during these uncertain times. Slava Ukraini

Why Korchma?

Since the 11th century, Korchmas' have existed in many Eastern European countries. The word “Korchma” translates from Ukrainian to ‘tavern’ or ‘pub’ where food, beer, or ale would be consumed by travelers.  Korchmas were popular amongst the cossacks as it was a safe haven for them to grab a bite to eat, drink horilka (type of vodka), and have dance-offs with each other. Cossacks were known as self-governing soldiers that fought for Ukraine's freedom and continue to be the symbol of Ukraine's independence in modern-day Ukraine. Korchmas were also known as the “peoples club” because “men and women gathered there for leisure and had friendly conversations with acquaintances and friends, who came to the tavern not to drink and eat at their own or other's expense, but rather more with the intention of people to socialize”.

Barrel House Korchma is an Ukrainian restaurant serving traditional eastern European dishes. Entering our restaurant, you will experience Ukraine's history during the Cossack times and the spirit of our ancestor's traditions. As a born and raised Ukrainian family living in Canada, we are proud of our heritage and want to continue serving our history to our customers.
