Here are the top rooftop patios to visit in Toronto this summer

Jun 9 2021, 7:23 am

Restaurants across Toronto are finally reopening and these rooftop patios — along with their miraculous views of the cityscape — are calling your name.

It’s high time to soak up the sunshine!

Serving up cold drinks alongside al fresco dining, these spots soar high above the rest. Whether the heights are offering views of the CN Tower, or sights reminiscent of Brooklyn, NY, you’re going to like what you see from up here.

These rooftops are at the top of Toronto’s patio scene as of June 11:


This Yorkville spot’s patio was — during normal times — always open until 2 am, 365 days a year. Now, with the kitchen open into the wee hours of the night, you can count on a late-night bite.

Address: 142 Cumberland Street, Toronto
Hours: Monday to Friday from 11 am to 2 am, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 2 am.

Negronis on tap, sangria, a rooftop patio… We think it’s fair to assume you’ll fall in love with this Bloor Street pub. “We are also observing 90-minute settings so that everyone gets a chance to enjoy a spot on the patio,” the pub said on their IG post.
