Torontonians take patio season pretty seriously, and when it comes to an end it's safe to say that we are pretty disappointed.  Luckily, this winter you won't have to give up drinking in the great outdoors.

The Drake Sky Yard's winterized patio is probably the coziest spot to drink this winter, and you need to go ASAP. This spacious rooftop patio is equipped with heaters and blankets to keep you warm all night long.  As an added bonus, the patio also has its very own bar, so you won't have to wait a crazy amount of time for your next drink.

The Drake is known for their extremely aesthetically pleasing decor, and adorable quirks and charms, so be sure to take advantage of all the amazing photo ops!

The best part is that the Drakes patio is open all day long!  It makes for an ideal venue for your next night out, as well as the perfect spot to enjoy a mojito over a Sunday brunch. Here are their hours so that you can plan your visit!
