Three New Toronto Patios You Need to Try
Irrefutable Fact: Canadians love their summers! Undisputed Probability: Nowhere in the country is the season celebrated more passionately than it is in Toronto. Even while tending to business, the city serves as Canada’s leading hub for business, technology, medicine and the arts. Torontonians view the lazy days of summer as a non-negotiable mandate to get outside and make the most of the sizzling glory that is summer in the city.
And even now that July has faded into the rearview, a solid argument can be made that the best is yet to come! Dazzling August and brilliant September days, not to mention balmy nights, are ideal for kicking back and enjoying the respite that is time spent on one of Toronto’s flourishing outdoor patios. Be it extending a lunch-break or making an oh-so-pleasant night of it, busy Torontonians can be spotted living their best summertime life on the city’s lively patios! Here’s a trio of new(ish) outdoor patios, conveniently located in the heart of the city.
Assembly Chef’s Hall is a rambling food hall where a dozen and a half chefs hawk their incredible offerings. Also home to a new enormous outdoor patio with its own bar which, if the consistent crowds are any indicator, is a perfect spot to gather to pay homage to a summer afternoon or evening. Located right in the heart of the city and home to a smorgasbord of delectable gastronomic offerings, you’ll be impressed at how the Assembly Chef’s Hall’s massive courtyard patio effortlessly manages to strike just the right balance between a high-energy downtown haven and secluded getaway. With the multiple strands of hanging lights lending the nighttime stars a hand, join the multitudes relaxing in the soft glow while savouring tasty summer bites, live music and the impressive bar.
