Summer is finally here and that means sunshine, warmth and patio days months now! Now that summer is here that means patio season is officially in full swing and we couldn't be happier. 

Probably one of the best things about summer is getting to enjoy refreshing drinks, a good meal and great company on a sunny patio in the city. Toronto has tons of gorgeous patios to choose from but there's a brand new one that's hidden on the streets of downtown that you need to discover this summer! 

The Drake Hotel just opened up their newest endeavour, the Drake Mini Bar, and it looks amazing! This is definitely the patio you want to hang out on on a sunny day this summer.

You can find The Drake Mini Bar at 150 York St located right in the heart of Downtown Toronto. Their gorgeous mini bar inspired by the 'classic hotel bar experience' is now officially open for the summer! They have a gorgeous interior but we know their patio is going to packed all summer long. 

The Drake Mini Bar is part eatery and part bar, serving up small plates, handcrafted cocktails and a huge selection of wine and beer. There's tons of outdoor seating on their unique, geometrically designed patio!

They have quick coffee-to-go section where you can grab a delicious latte and a pastry on your way into work. They also have a menu full of amazing small plates to enjoy with your drinks on the patio including a fish plate, beef ribs, mashed potato dumplings, hand made pasta and more! 

The coolest part about this new spot is that the interior is just as exciting as the exterior. Inside they have gorgeous art installed by a local artist and a sort of indoor lobby patio made with a geometric wood structure!
