Toronto just got a little more Drake. Drake Mini Bar is now open across the hall from the Drake One Fifty, and it serves up bar-friendly appetizers, hand-crafted cocktails, craft beers, and wine list! This is what everyone desperately wants and needs... a new, hip place to grab a drink at happy hour (they call it Après Work). Or maybe you need a stiff drink during your lunch break (we've all been there).
The Drake Mini Bar is great because it's so transitional. Not only can you go with your friends and coworkers for happy hour, this bar is also a great breakfast stop on your way to work. They also have a quick and convenient coffee station where you can grab your morning coffee on your way to the office. They serve quick and easy breakfast options like:
- Cinnamon and Orange Morning Bun
- Wild Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins
- Drake Granola Parfait: balkan yoghurt, strawberry compote, cacao nibs
- Breakfast Sandwich: tomato preserve, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, gruyère, english muffin
Aside from breakfast and après-work happy hours, Drake Mini Bar is also the perfect spot for pre-show bites (they host a variety of DJ Venues) and post-dinner nightcaps. They serve bar bites like shucked oysters, salmon ceviche, bar burgers, chicken karaage, and several large salad bowls for those who enjoy a lighter meal during the work day.
Aside from this mini bar being super flexible, one of the best things about summer weather is enjoying drinks and a good meal on a sunny patio. Toronto has gorgeous patios everywhere they shouldn't be secluded to the weekends if you work a 9-5 job. It's simply unfair.
If you work in the Financial District, you'll find the pure convenience of Drake Mini Bar's patio very alluring. Since the Drake Mini Bar is located right on York St., you can still enjoy a bit of sun during your lunch breaks or for a quick cup of coffee. Although this spot isn't the largest of spaces, they have a massive plein-air patio overlooking the Financial District, and it is absolutely picturesque. It is a great way to decompress after looking at your computer screen all day.
Located at 50 York Street, across the hall from the Frake One Fifty, The Drake Mini Bar is open Monday to Friday from 830am until close. On Saturdays, they are open from 4pm until close and they are closed on Sundays. For more info on their menu, events and buzz, visit their website.
