This Country-Western themed hotspot is the perfect rooftop for enjoying drinks and apps with your co-workers after a long shift or your friends after a game at the Rogers Centre just a few blocks away. Low prices and Insta-worthy bucket cocktails keep the Porch packed with 20 (and maybe a few 30) somethings all summer long.


Hemingway’s Restaurant

This New Zealand-inspired Toronto icon features flavourful twists on familiar pub favourites (think kiwi lamb burger and pavlova for dessert). Hemingway’s mature but casual ambiance includes a retractable awning to keep you cool and dry, themed trivia nights and international sports like cricket and rugby on the TV. 


Kasa Moto

Sushi might not be the first thing to come to mind when you think about patio dining, but Kasa Moto will make you a believer. Sleek and modern yet comfortable, Kasa Moto has the perfect vibe for a sophisticated cocktail hour and dinner with friends. Try one of their signature cocktails like the Yellow Lotus (chilli and shiso infused olmeca altos, brown sugar cinnamon syrup and lime) or an Akasaka Affair (wild turkey, fernet branca, martini fiero and cherry syrup).
