While the street level patio packs it in during the winter, the upper-level patio stays open all year round. Get cozy with some wine and pizza while you watch the snow through the retractable glass ceiling.

Broadview Hotel

106 Broadview Ave

If snow isn’t your ideal scene, then head over to the Broadview Hotel because their enclosed rooftop patio offers the most amazing views. Sit back, relax and see the city skyline from the East end of town.

Hemmingway’s

142 Cumberland St

The New Zealand-style pub located in Yorkville is the perfect spot to grab a beer and get cozy. Their rooftop patio stays heated even on the coldest of winter days, not to mention the pub grub is hella comforting too.

Big Crow

176 Dupont St

The BBQ joint boasts a fully winterized patio that almost feels like cabin since it’s an enclosed wooden space. If the multiple heaters don’t warm you up, their baby back ribs or a steak will do the trick.

Sky Yard at the Drake

1150 Queen St W

The trendy Queen West establishment has one of the best all-weather patios in the city. Heaters and twinkling lights set the mood whether you’re sitting down for some food or letting loose and drinking all night long.

King Taps

100 King St W

Fitted with gas heaters, King Taps’ warm patio isn’t all they have to boast about. The Financial District restaurant has 50 draught beers on tap and will always be playing your favourite sports.

Bar Raval

505 College St

While Bar Raval’s enclosed patio is tiny, others would say it’s romantic. This is the perfect all weather patio for date night as it also features a plethora of tapas great for sharing. Nibble away while you look up at the stars!

Cactus Club

77 Adelaide St W

Add Cactus Club to your list of rooftop patios with retractable roofs! Found on the third floor, the spacious all-weather patio even has its own kitchen and bar. Grab some delicious prawn ceviche or some drinks before you head to the club.

Cold Tea

60 Kensington Ave

The back patio at Cold Tea is one of the coolest spots in the city to go winter patio-ing. Located in the heart of Kensington market, the entrance is in an inconspicuous hallway making it feel like you are a part of something exclusive.

The Ballroom

145 John St

The great thing about The Ballroom is that if you get bored of sitting on the patio, you can literally go bowling. Equipped with an alley and liquor license, your in for a fun night if you decide to hit up this heated patio.
