On Friday, Aug 12, CityEvents hosted the last Schmooze of summer 2016. It’s true what they say, you always save the best for last! The blue and white lantern garden theme set a nice mood, transforming the patio yet again for a magical getaway from city life.


Although the forecast called for rain all week leading up to the event, Schmooze was a fighting-force and cleared the skies just in time for 5 p.m. when the doors opened! Guests enjoyed the heat, celebrating on the rooftop patio while sipping on cocktails crafted by drink sponsor Grey Goose. The cocktails were made of Grey Goose Vodka, with a splash of St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, topped off with club soda, and served with a lime. It was a hit, and the perfect way to keep cool on the heat.

To say the food was good would be an understatement. Guests swarmed the food station eagerly awaiting the feast served by Treeline Catering. The tacos which consisted of a corn coleslaw, seasoned ground pork, and crispy onion, topped with a chipotle mayo. And as if those weren’t enough, there was also barbecued corn on the cob seasoned with butter and spices.

A new addition to this Schmooze event was the classic party game of beer pong, set up to the right of the bar. The game was played by many guests, and even created a spectator gathering.

September 5, 2013 by  
Filed under CitySocial, Event Venues, Ontario, Toronto, Uncategorized

As the mercury climbs every summer the need to find a watering hole becomes increasingly more essential. There aren’t many activities that beat grabbing a few cold ones on a patio with some friends, the perfect blend of summer heat and true refreshment. Presumably, you, the reader also enjoy a summer patio session as you are still reading.  So, with that confirmed this post will lay out some of Toronto’s most enjoyable patios and will provide you with a Toronto Summer Patio Bucket list.  Many of the patios below are also great venues for events and offer a fresh change from a hotel banquet room.

Cadillac Lounge Patio

 1296 Queen St W, Toronto

The first patio we would suggest visiting is the Cadillac Lounge Patio at 1296 Queen Street West. The Cadillac Lounge has a unique back patio that is rather spacious and is filled with the aroma of their hickory smoker, minus all the smoke of course. It also offers a large variety of bottled beers or on tap. Its retro atmosphere will charm you and travel until the Southern United States.

 Pilot Patio

22 Cumberland St, Toronto

When you think patio in Toronto you immediately think Pilot’s Patio: The Flight Deck! Opened in 1993 as the largest “patio with altitude” in Yorkville, its name came from a tribute to the heroic flyers of World War II. It has been known as an artist bar, then the hub of Toronto’s hippie community, to finally become the place to go for elite’s after work drinks and trendy after midnight party nowadays.

 Hair of the dog

425 Church, Toronto

Hair of the dog is an upscale neighborhood pub and restaurant on Church St, on the southern fringes of the Gay Village. Hair of the dog reflects the diversity of the neighborhood thanks to a mixed clientele. Winning venue, with one of the top 10 patio in downtown Toronto. It has this particularity of having 2 patios! On the ground floor you can find a large space featuring 3 fountains. Facing south, the patio is filled by sun all day. A good time to enjoy a family brunch drinks with friends. Hair of the dog is also a dining experience where you can enjoy fine food in cozy and more intimate spaces. Fun fact: Hair of Dog has been voted best place to have a first date. And awarded great place to dump someone by the staff!

Against the Grain Urban Tavern

25 Dockside Dr. Toronto

Situated at 25 Dockside Drive on Corus Quay, right next to Sugar Beach, the patio has a spectacular view of Lake Ontario, the Harbour and Toronto Island. It comfortably seats 180 guests around traditional two tops, beach like lounge areas and umbrellas for this hot summer. Every weekend, from 10.30 a.m. to 3 p.m., the restaurant offers $5 Bloody Caesar specials and during the week you will be able to enjoy unique local and European brews, interesting new and old world wines and some amazing cocktails.

New Amsterdam patio

Terroni Bar Centrale

1095 Yonge St, Toronto

In the Rosedale community one of the best patios to relax on would be at the Terroni Bar Centrale. This patio is a great way to enjoy the homey designed feel of Italy. With a vast selection from the “tapas style” menu plates are intended to be shared, which is the perfect scenery for a hang out spot with friends and family. Also, this wine bar has a signature selection of Terroni-exclusive wines and a unique variety from Italy. Experience a day or night on the patio laughing, sharing and appreciating the summer days. Enclosed with fresh greenery this patio gives off a natural blissful vibe. The Terroni Bar Centrale’s patio is a great way to retreat for some time of relaxation.

Museum Tavern Toronto

208 Bloor W, Toronto

After a long, hot summer day finding a patio that is just right could be difficult to find, but look no further because Museum Tavern Toronto has that just right patio. With a slight summer breeze and nice view this patio is to die for. Facing the ROM you can enjoy the menu from executive chef Steven Gouzopoulos which features all-American classics with a twist. Not to mention the Moses McIntee’s drinks list that is a temptation you cannot resist. Enjoy the last moments of summer on the restaurant’s second floor terrace, an experience you will not regret.

The new Mill Street Beer Hall

21 Tank House Lane, Toronto

The Beer Hall is the new space of the Mill Street Brew Pub situated in the Distillery District. Opened in April this year, this place offers a modern and lively atmosphere where it is pleasant to enjoy a good beer with friends or simply an excellent meal.

With its open concept kitchen offering local and international cuisine, a heated, a cover patio and communal seating, The Beer Hall is the perfect place to welcome group events from 15 to 500 persons.
