If you haven’t already, it’s time to explore Toronto’s hotel rooftop bar scene. Anything but ordinary, these patios are eye pleasers with a tasty twist. Make the most of summer's sunny days by trying new cocktails and eats, elevated by the best views in the city. Cheers!

The Le Germain's Victor Rooftop Terrace

The Victor Rooftop Terrace at the Le Germain Hotel is a true oasis in the heart of the city. Sip champagne, snack on French food, and snap photos of the CN Tower from this 11th floor patio. With just 14 seats, Victor's intimate setting will have you feeling like an A-lister in no time. 30 Mercer Street

Must Try: Since this rooftop is in partnership with Veuve Cliquot, it would only be appropriate to indulge a bottle to accompany executive Chef Lanny MacLeod's Apero menu. 

Bisha Hotel’s Kōst

Venture up to Bisha Hotel’s 44th floor and arrive at Kōst, their signature rooftop restaurant that overlooks an impressive infinity pool complemented by artsy, tropical vibes. The menu is fresh and aromatic with flavourful cocktails, inspired by California and Mexico’s coastal culture. And with unobstructed views of the CN Tower, it’s the spot to level up your Instagram grid. 80 Blue Jays Way

Must Try: The Spiced Margarita comes by the glass or pitcher (for sharing of course!), with Jalapeño-infused lime juice that gives your taste buds a jolt.

The Broadview Hotel’s Rooftop Bar

Raise a glass on The Broadview Hotel’s humbly named, Rooftop Bar. You’ll be mesmerized by its stunning views of the Toronto skyline, elegant art deco furnishings—think velvet and gold accents—and ample square footage (great for physical distancing). Treat yourself to this feast for the eyes, palate and soul. 106 Broadview Ave.

Must Try: The bubbly Thyme for a Spritz cocktail. Couple it with the well-seasoned Sweet & Spicy Edamame and voilà!

The Drake Hotel’s Sky Yard

Need a rooftop patio for boozy brunch or TGIF happy hour that wins you points in good taste? The Drake Hotel's Sky Yard is a stylish staple in Toronto’s West End that offers more than your typical skyline views. This rooftop oasis is decked out from floor to ceiling, with vibrant murals and funky light fixtures—even the pillows are on point as every detail is accounted for. It’s one of Toronto’s most popular brunch spots, with good reason! 1150 Queen St. W.

Must Try: Spice the summer up with a strawberry habanero margarita, or cool off with a refreshing sangria.

Hotel X’s Falcon SkyBar 

Have you ever gazed out at Lake Ontario and the Toronto skyline in one sitting? Better late than never at Falcon SkyBar at Hotel X, where you’ll tower over Lake Ontario’s wavy waterfront and Toronto’s glittering skyline! If you love variety, you’ll love this luxury hotel’s three-level rooftop bar with ample views and a wide-ranging drink menu to match. 111 Princes' Blvd.

Must Try: Luxuriate with a traditional caesar that’s revamped as a Caesar X, made with only the finest vodka and ingredients.

Delta Hotel Toronto’s The Roof at SOCO 

Plan a relaxed rendezvous of casual eats and drinks at SOCO Kitchen + Bar’s The Roof, found atop Delta Hotel Toronto. Extremely well located in the downtown core (attached to Union Station), it’s easy to get to and even easier to unwind at. This rooftop bar comes with cozy seating, a laid-back vibe and gorgeous CN Tower views. 75 Lower Simcoe St.

Must Try: The Blackberry Basil Bourbon Lemonade—it’s a tasty combination of tangy and boozy, made even better by basil’s fresh aftertaste.
