Wheelchair-friendly/accessible pubs/restaurants in Toronto?

Are there any good, accessible venues in Toronto (near the UofT Campus/St. George) for student events? (i.e. pubs, restaurants, and coffee houses?).

I am in charge of planning events for our student council and we are required to use accessible venues. The problem is, there isn't really that many in Toronto, surprisingly (what an eye-opener!). Some places claim they are accessible but their washrooms are completely inaccessible (down a set of narrow stairs or a door too narrow to fit a wheelchair through and no wheelchair-friendly toilet stalls). We're looking for pubs, restaurants, and coffee houses (preferably ones with private rooms or a small stage area for an open-mic night). We're planning on checking out some places on campus that are part of UofT (i.e. Hart House) but we need some accessible venues to choose from, as the only truly accessible venue we have requires a hefty $1500 commitment, which means we have to make up the difference in the tab if it comes to less thank $1500 even though we're bringing them business.
