Best Toronto Patios: The Thompson Rooftop

The Thompson Hotel Rooftop is widely considered to be one of the best patios in Toronto.

The picture perfect scenery of Toronto’s skyscrapers attracts guests from all around. Not all rooftop patios are able to offer views like the Thompson can. The prime location adds to the bar’s success, and the 360 degree views offer a perspective of the city like no other.

The patio gives off a high-end vibe, with beautiful furniture and an infinity swimming pool. Creative cocktails are a hit at this rooftop bar. Although the bar is exclusive to lounge members and hotel guests unless you’re invited to a party, the experience is unforgettable. Sometimes, it’s admittedly like Fort Knox to get up to the Thompson Rooftop – but it’s totally worth it when you can. Offering the best, unmatched views of the city, creative cocktails that are totally worth their price tag, food that’s reliable (and photo-worthy), the Thompson Rooftop is always synonymous with a good party.

Speaking of photo-worthy, the Toronto rooftop swimming pool makes just as great of a backdrop for your Instagram shots as the surrounding cityscape does. As an added bonus, the crowd is just as easy on the eyes as the view is. There is always a good DJ, and the bartenders are all seasoned mixologists. Some of the best cocktails are at your fingers tips, and trendy drinks are always ready to go. It’s just goes to show that when coming here, you get what you pay for, and is totally worth checking out.

The patio will make your friends jealous that you’re there, and they’re not. The bar seconds as a hotel, so be prepared to mingle with many out of towners. Remember to dress to impress as “smart” attire is required.
