15 patios in Toronto to visit before it gets cold

You heard it here first: winter is coming! Enjoy the last moments of Toronto patio season with some of our favourites.

We’ve got good news and we’ve got bad news. We’ll start with the bad stuff: it’s getting colder. Although you probably didn’t need us to tell you that. The good news? There are so many Toronto patios to visit before it gets cold cold.

We’ve rounded up 15 patios to visit in the city before we whip the parkas out. So, choose a spot, text your friends and tell them where to meet you at quarter to five.

Not only is Stackt Canada’s largest shipping container market, but it’s home to the Belgian Moon Brewery. We’re talking about a first-of-its-kind, state-of-the-art, premium small-batch brewery built inside three shipping containers.

Toronto Beach Club
Because who doesn’t want to hit up a beach club? This brand-new Mediterranean spot is a must-try. Come hungry and in the mood for beachy vibes.

Petty Cash
This neighbourhood bar, but ramped up a whole lot of notches. The best food and delicious drinks. The pizza is our favourite.

Betty’s on King
This east-end dive bar has been killing it since the ‘90s. Their back patio is precisely where we want to be at quarter to five. Every day.

Toronto’s largest patio? Don’t mind if we do. This collab between Toronto classics The Fifth Social Club and Ballroom is the ultimate spot to grab a drink downtown.

Ruby Soho
This King West staple is the ultimate in good patio vibes. Twinkly lights? Check. Long drink list? Check. Amazing people-watching? Check.

Chula Taberna
This Leslieville spot has two Tiki Bars. We repeat- two tiki bars! Oh, and did we mention they’ve got two heated patios and the best Mexican food?

Bar Poet
The dreamiest West end restaurant now has a patio, homemade pizza and a massive cocktail and beer list. We’ll just leave you with that.

Wheatsheaf Tavern
The Wheatshef is an institution for a reason. They’ve held down the fort at King and Bathurst since 1849 serving up cold pints, great music and delicious food.

Toronto Island BBQ & Beer Co.
Making one last trip to Toronto Island before it gets chilly? Check out Toronto Island BBQ and Beer co. With low and slow BBQ and local beers it’s the perfect “island” getaway.

The Riviera Wards Island Kitchen
While you’re on Toronto Island, you might as well make a little bar crawl out of it. Head to the Riviera for a cozy vibe and amazing views of the lake.

King Taps
Speaking of a long drink list, King Taps has over 50 draught beers, so we recommend this spot when you’re headed to a patio in the Financial District with that picky friend.

Located in the heart of Yorkville, Hemingway’s has one of the best (and most iconic) rooftop patios in the city. There’s a reason they’ve been in business for 40 years.

Locals Only
If you’re looking for King West vibes, Locals Only is your spot. Good food, good drinks and always a (really) good time.
