The 7 Best Patio Bars In Toronto

The Toronto patio bars are a massive thing and with one of the best skylines in North America, it’s hard to imagine why somewhere would choose not to open a patio.

Though there are more than seven patio bars in Toronto we could name that you should go visit, here are seven of our favourites. Order an ice cold beer and soak up those views.

1. Amsterdam BrewHouse

You know a place is pretty legit when they have, count ‘em, FOUR separate patio spaces in one single establishment!

Amsterdam BrewHouse is the perfect place to catch a cold beer while taking in those landscape views of the Toronto Harbourfront.

2. Sky Yard at the Drake Hotel

Not named after the rapper, this hip rooftop patio on top of the Drake Hotel is one of Toronto’s favourite locations to catch skyline views. Sip on one of their well-known mojitos.

Come here during the winter months and you’ll get to roast some marshmallows to help keep you warm.

3. El Catrin

This gem of a place in the Distillery District features a patio with hip chandeliers and a giant barrel-shaped fire pit in the middle of the patio.

This Mexican joint is known for their Margaritas. Pair it with a ceviche to make it a bomb combo.

4. Lavelle

Not many establishments come equipped with a pool (let alone three pools) and a cabana, but that’s exactly what you’ll find at Lavelle.

On this rooftop patio, you’ll also find panoramic views of Toronto’s skyline including an absolutely epic view of the CN Tower.

Stay until late here on the weekend and this place transforms into an outdoor lounge/club.

5. The One Eighty

Stepping foot on this patio will feel like you’re on top of the world.

Sitting 51 floors above the ground, the patio at The One Eighty will definitely give you the best rooftop views. Take in those views with one of their signature cocktails, Frozé You Say.

6. The Porch

With a patio vibe that is unmatched by any other patio in the city, The Porch almost has a college feel to it. It’s crowded, noisy, and there’s lots of beer to go around.

Go here if you like large crowds and are keen to try their summer drink of 2019, a Margarita Tower, a massive 100 ounces of boozy goodness!

7. The Rooftop at the Broadview Hotel

The Rooftop patio at the Broadview Hotel features a new-age approach to patios, one that has an outdoor and indoor space.

The vibe here is fun and trendy and the drinks are excellent. Get their Dram & Basil cocktail and pair that with the Forest Mushroom Poutine.
