For 26 years in the heart of the Theatre District, the beloved sports bar and rooftop patio has served as an ideal space to watch sports teams take to the rink, court or field.

Apart from being a restaurant, sports bar and patio, the establishment is also loved and respected for being home to many of Wayne Gretzky’s personal memorabilia, which are displayed throughout the restaurant for fans to appreciate.

“We’re honoured to have shared so many memorable moments in sports history with so many fans,” says Heather Santsche, General Manager of Wayne Gretzky’s Toronto in a release. ”

Over the years, Wayne Gretzky’s has become more than just a restaurant — it’s evolved into a community hub for sports fans and anyone with an appreciation for Wayne’s contributions to hockey history.

And in some cases, diners have had the opportunity to meet and chat with Walter Gretzky, who regularly visits the restaurant.

It’s the little – albeit iconic – things like this that’ll make saying goodbye to this spot a sorry lose for the city.
