Drake fans in Toronto will soon have a new spot in The 6ix to hit for possible sightings of the hip hop artist.
That's right, move over Frings, because Drake's new hot spot for friends and fans has finally had its grand opening, and you're going to want to visit ASAP.
While the new Yonge Street restaurant isn't officially open yet, Drizzy did hold a pre-opening birthday party for Dwayne Wade with close friends like NBA pal LeBron James earlier this week, and another official launch with the media last night.

Earlier this summer, the rumour mill went into overdrive when fans noticed the OVO logo - the rapper's signature owl insignia - popped up this summer at Yonge and Wellington in the city's Financial District, leading to speculation of either a sports bar or restaurant.
While details on the new restaurant venture's menu remain scarce, Pick 6 is a sports term used in horse betting and American football, so speculation is that the space will be a sports bar of some kind. Photos from the birthday bash suggest, however, that the space will be chic and sophisticated: the chairs are teal velvet, the walls are black marble and the decor features gold accents.

According to a separate release from retractable-roof company OpenAire, the restaurant will feature a 2,100-square-foot open-concept patio with a glass enclosure.
Expect way more details to come forward as the day progresses.
You can find Pick 6ix at 33 Yonge Street, though an official opening date for the public has yet to be revealed for the restaurant.
