Cocktails, fine women and the great outdoors. What’s not to love about patio season in Toronto? Here are a few good eye-candy spots.
Century Room is tucked away from the bright lights of King West in a hidden tree-lined courtyard that’s the perfect retreat for sipping cocktails under the stars. 580 King St. West.
Panorama is perched on the 51st floor of the Manulife Centre, offering a view of Toronto that borders on the awe-inspiring. On top of its teak deck chairs and small tables for sky-high socializing, Panorama serves some of the city’s best cocktails. 51-55 Bloor St. West.
One occupies the ground floor of The Hazelton Hotel. It employs a pure hotel-restaurant aesthetic where the street-level patio has an irresistible excitement that explains its well-deserved popularity. 118 Yorkville Ave.
Myth features a minimalist décor, with austere art piece lighting plunging from the high ceiling where Gucci-clad go-getters meet in a relaxed, friendly setting. The mostly Greek menu is delicious, and sharing a few appetizers with your friends is recommended, even if you aren’t there for the food. 417 Danforth Ave.
The Madison boasts a patio consisting of five levels, each with its own bar to keep liquid flowing swiftly and effortlessly. Century-old trees cover the terrace, casting random shade, while flowerpots and hanging baskets complete the look of this rustic, but cozy deck. 14 Madison Ave.
