Best Toronto Restaurant: Oasis Rooftop Patio

Toronto restaurant Oasis, which is also commonly known as Wayne Gretzky’s patio, certainly lives up to its name.

Located in the heart of the Toronto’s downtown core, and within walking distance from the Rogers Centre, Oasis is the best place to grab drinks before and after Toronto’s big game.

Vegetation surrounds beautiful patio furniture, giving a cozy, yet comfortable vibe. Bar stools and pub-style tables fill the patio, making an impressive place for interaction. Not only does ‘The Great One’ endorse Oasis, but some of the best hockey memorabilia fill the indoors of the actual restaurant downstairs. The rooftop comes alive and is one of the best attractions Wayne Gretzky’s has to offer.

In terms of food, you can’t go wrong. The summeresque-style menu makes for a perfect lunch, or an evening meal. Don’t be fooled; fine dining meets some of the best patio eatery in this laid-back atmosphere. Plus, food always tastes better outside, right?

The patio offers Toronto favourites like classic wings and burgers. The burgers on the menu are certainly a score. Named after the Great One himself, the burger comes with a double patty, and a charred 99 on its brioche bun. Finger snacks are a must-have here, making for perfect sharable dishes. Signature cocktails are sure to catch the attention of anyone looking to have a cold one. With the best beers on tap, and drinks on ice, soaking up some rays on the patio sounds pretty great.

What clearly makes this patio the best is that it’s a place everyone can enjoy. Of course, hockey fans and Gretzky followers love the novelty, but a non-hockey fan can enjoy the setting just as much. No guest feels as though they are out of their territory when coming for a meal or drink.

And here’s to hoping the great one shows up while you’re there.
