What’s better than regular patios? Rooftop patios. And lucky for us, Toronto’s got a ton of them. Whether you’re looking for something with a view of the gorgeous city skyline or something a little cozier and quaint, this city has got you covered. There’s nothing we love more than outdoor drinks and dining. So check out these Toronto rooftop patios today!
Here are 10 amazing rooftop patios in Toronto.
This beautiful rooftop terrace is one of the best in Toronto. They specialize in pizza, pasta, and wine. Which you all know are three of our favourite things. Plus, they offer a super cool terrarium vibe. We recommend ordering their Mafalde Al Funghi pasta. It comes with portobello, porcini, and oyster mushrooms. And it’s topped with a truffle cream sauce. Mmmmmmm.
Where: 101 Portland St.
The Drake Hotel is behind some of the best restos in the city. So it’s no surprise they’ve got a rooftop patio on this list. Head to the Sky Yard for a gorgeous view overlooking Queen West. Plus, you can enjoy their exposed-brick-hanging-plant ambience as well. Oh, and the food’s pretty good too!
Where: 1150 Queen St W
And you can dine in style at this swanky rooftop patio. First of all, it’s 16-storeys high. Secondly, they have 360° views of the city skyline. Does it get better than that? We don’t think so. Oh, and did we mention they’ve even got a pool up there? Guess it does get better! Lavelle is known for their cocktails, so make sure you try one while you’re there. We recommend the Hibiscus Rosé Sangria. Cheers!
Where: 627 King St W
This Toronto staple offers amazing views of the city skyline. It’s located all the way at the top of the Manulife Centre. And when you’re 51-storeys high, you can pretty much see everything. But be warned- the south-facing side of their wrap-around patio fills up super quickly. So maybe put in a reservation or get there early to nab a spot. Keep your eyes peeled for their official reopening date!
Where: 55 Bloor Street W, Manulife Centre, 51st Floor
This adorable Yorkville resto offers a cozier vibe on their rooftop patio. Their rooftop area has limited seating, so make a reservation if you want to nab a spot. But don’t worry, if you can’t catch the rooftop, they’ve also got a ground-level patio area. You can enjoy a ton of delicious Italian dishes here, but our personal favourite is the Capellini. It comes topped with a tomato sauce, sun-dried tomato, goat cheese, basil. Can’t go wrong with goat cheese, right?
Where: 75 Yorkville Ave
Feeling like sushi? This spot is another Yorkville location. Only we promise their rooftop patio has got a little more room. On this gorgeous rooftop terrace, you can try some of the city’s best sushi. They have everything from classic maki rolls to pressed sushi platters. It’s the perfect place for sharing plates with friends.

There’s nothing quite like drinks at this gorgeous rooftop spot. The place comes complete with incredible views of the CN Tower. Plus, they’ve even got a pool! We recommend sipping on “The Selfie” cocktail (Tanqueray Gin, Lychee, Elderflower, Rose Water Syrup, Lemon Juice) while taking an actual selfie at this pretty spot. Cheers!
Where: Bisha Hotel, 44th Floor, 80 Blue Jays Way
We’re obsessed with the vibe at this rooftop spot. Tons of beautiful greenery hangs from the windowed ceiling. And the gorgeous design makes you feel like you’re sitting in your very own little terrarium. Finally, the scrumptious menu certainly doesn’t hurt!
