This garden-themed patio is going to be the hottest spot of the summer

The older we get, the more we understand why our grandma just hangs out in her garden all day. It’s green, it smells nice, and the plants don’t judge us. However, we’re not quite at retired homebody age yet, so we’ll be at The Gaarden instead. It’s the city’s newest patio hideout, with all the plants and sunshine but none of the social avoidance. Win!

INK Entertainment and Hoegaarden teamed up to make this one possible, and we bet you’re seeing where the double “e” came from. Everyone’s favourite citrusy, summery ale will be on tap, of course! Also, you’ll be able to try such patio-y drinks as frosé, piña coladas, jalapeno margaritas, and Caesars.

The space is lush, the views are perfect, and we’re getting maximum vitamin D absorption up here! Ahhhh.

The CEO of INK says, “the Gaarden offers a whole new energy to Queen Street West. It’s the perfect place to take a midday break from shopping or to enjoy Toronto’s summer nights.” Sir, we do agree.

Relax at communal high-tops, a big ol’ 20-seat bar, or a private booth. Also, there’s bottle service if you really want to woo us 😉 We’ll be here all summer, so you won’t have to look far!
