Greetings from The Drake! With summer heating up The Drake Hotel into a (very steamy) hotbed for culture, we went above and beyond to re-design our beloved Sky Yard into an all-inclusive rooftop staycation for travellers, shakers + movers alike. Brought to life by internationally-celebrated artists and curators, we added everything we could think of to make the Sky Yard the city’s premier patio destination.

Inspired by 1920’s desert modernism, we took the liberty of re-designing our rooftop hangout into a Coachella Valley paradise with diving boards, pool toy installations and desert-living décor. Curated by Mia Nielsen, The Drake's curator, guests are invited to experience interactive installations such as INSA’s “I Would Die 4 U,” a Prince tribute doubling as a GIF with INSA’s moving graffiti app. There’s also an exciting new “finger drawing” piece by contemporary Canadian artist, Micah Lexier. Pretty cool, right? We know.

Excited yet? It doesn't end there! In the heart of downtown Toronto, find Drake One Fifty's patio open for business with our Potions + Provisions menu serving up late night treats, after-work libations, and famous Drake Brunch. Keep an eye out for Drake One Fifty's Parkette programming for guest chef pop-ups + live acts all summer long. It's gonna be a good one.

Up for getting out of the city? Head to Drake Devonshire where our lakeside seats provide the perfect perch for taking in the charms of the County.
