With patios reopening across Toronto this week, some places are coming up with creative ways to bring their dining experiences outdoors. One of the city's iconic hotels has transformed its street into a blooming floral patio, and it's the perfect place to enjoy the summer weather. Toronto's Fairmont Royal York patio will transport you to a magical blossoming paradise.
Next time you're walking downtown, you might notice that the Fairmont Royal York looks a little different than usual.
The hotel now has a stunning flower-filled patio, and it will make you feel like you've fallen into a fairytale.
CLOCKWORK Terrace brings the dishes and drinks from the lobby bar outdoors so guests can enjoy them in the sunshine.
The space features a massive flower wall made of blush-coloured blooms.
It's the perfect spot to snap some Instagram photos and to enjoy a drink or two.
Tall leafy hedges and blossoming flower pots will transport you far from the city's core to a whimsical garden.
Classic cocktails from the CLOCKWORK bar will be on the menu.
You can sip some summery beverages like Blush Sangria and the Watermelon Sugar, which comes with watermelon, mint, and cucumber soda.
Mains and starters are also available to enjoy on the new blushing terrace.
Since no outing is complete without dessert, you can order some sweet plates like the butter tart with vanilla ice cream.
The terrace is open from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and reservations are strongly encouraged but not required.
You can reserve a table and view the menu on OpenTable.
Casa Loma is also opening a magical patio this week. The castle has transformed its garden terrace into an outdoor dining area fit for royalty.
