Toronto is a city that takes spring and summer very seriously. As the sun starts to shine it, can only mean one thing. It’s officially patio season, time to partake in Torontonians’ favourite activity. Grab a drink in the breeze and soak up some sunshine at any (or all) of these Toronto patios.

The Thompson Toronto

Sporting both a rooftop bar and an infinity pool, The Thompson Hotel is a go to for summer drinks. With smart evening attire required, it’s the perfect occasion to dress up and enjoy a 360° view of the Toronto skyline and Lake Ontario. Put on your fanciest outfit and sip a Grand Seduction, their tequila-based cocktail (or some champagne if you’re feeling so inclined!).

The Porch

Situated on Adelaide, right above the Rock ‘n Horse Saloon, The Porch offers fantastic views of Toronto, including a unobstructed shot of the CN Tower. While the atmosphere is laid back during the day, the Porch becomes vibrant as the sun sets, making it ideal any time of the day. Share a ‘Pizzadilla roll’ (pepperoni, mozzarella and marinara).

The Porch, 250 Adelaide Street West, Toronto, ON, Canada, +1 647 344 1234

Mascot Brewery

If you like beer, Mascot Brewery is the way to go. Using traditional German techniques, this rooftop crafts its own beers, a Pilsner and a Hefewizen. While it’s nicknamed the ‘Beer Garden’, they have a variety of tall boys and bottles in rotation, Mascot Brewery also offers cocktails like ‘Daqs on Daqs on Daqs’.

Mascot Brewery, 31 Mercer Street, Toronto, ON, Canada, +1 416 979 0131

Valdez

If you are looking for a more Latino feel try Valdez. It offers a wide variety of wines and cocktails. With cocktail pitchers (serving three or four people) and a vibrant Mexican vibe, you’re sure to have a good time. If the food choices are too overwhelming, The Street Party and La Confianza are a three and four course menu, respectively.

Valdez, 606 King Street West, Toronto, ON, Canada, +1 416 363 8388

Harvest Kitchen

Harvest Kitchen was named after its two goals. They are to harvest and use as much local food as possible, and to mimic the comfortable, cozy atmosphere a kitchen has. Known for its brunch, Harvest Kitchen also offers cocktails with their wide range of food, providing a great reason to drink in the early afternoon. Have their Corn n’ Millet pancakes, and enjoy their HK Caesar cocktail.

Harvest Kitchen, 124 Harbord Street, Toronto, ON, Canada, +1 416 901 5901

The Drake Sky Yard

Hotel Restaurant, Wine, Cocktails, $$$
Save
Open all-year round, the Sky Yard at The Drake Hotel is a must-visit no matter the weather or the temperature. While there’s no need to eagerly wait for that perfect sunny day anymore, every day is patio day with The Drake Sky Yard, nothing quite beats warm evenings on a West Queen West rooftop. Offering specialty cocktails made by their bartenders (with names like ‘Call Me Maybe’ and ‘Mother’s Little Helper’, who wouldn’t want to try them?) and delicious food, the Sky Yard shouldn’t be missed.

Bovine Sex Club is known for its presence in the alternative music scene, but above the main space hides its rooftop, the Tiki Bar.

Murphy’s Law

Pub, Restaurant, Pub Grub, $$$
Save
Can’t decide between going to a pub or a rooftop patio? Struggle no more. Murphy’s Law is the perfect mix of both. A bit of Ireland in the Beaches, its cozy vibe will make you feel right at home. The authentic pub feel gives it charm, so you can enjoy a cold pint while overlooking the city. Have some good ol’ pub grub like fish and chips or enjoy one of the sandwiches or burgers.
