The Best Rooftop Patios in Toronto

The Best Rooftop Patios in Toronto

To say it has been a long four months is an understatement. After having to relinquish the ability to dine-out in the city, we have finally been graced with the reopening of patios and outdoor-dining, just in time for our cherished and fleeting summer months!

Ditch your go-to athleisure ensemble that you have been rocking in quarantine, skip this week's takeout pizza night and congregate in your social bubble because finally, a Friday night out doesn't mean another socially distanced gathering in the park.

Below is a list of Toronto's best rooftop patios because what doesn't scream indulgent celebration like a $20 cocktail overlooking the CN tower than the city's swankiest offerings. From sky-high pool bars to cheap pints in hidden garden rooftops -- the city is once again yours for the taking. Majority of these spots do require reservations in order to maintain social distancing protocols so make sure you check in advance.
