The Best Happy Hour in Toronto

Though it may always be 5 o'clock somewhere, happy hour in Toronto is an excellent opportunity to capitalize on enjoying some amazing discounted food and drinks at some of the city's hotspots, especially after a long day of work.

Located all over Toronto, the best happy hours will ensure you can have your cake and eat it too. From deals on signature cocktails to bar rail, beer, wine, food and more, you and your pals can dabble into a little bit of everything without having to break the bank.
