Holidays: It Could Be So Nice

Posted by Dave Elliott , August 23, 2017

The summer weather is only now making an appearance (better late than never), but we have something that may seem surprising to talk to you about. Ready for it? Holiday plans.

We want to ensure that you and whoever you celebrate the winter holidays with have the best possible time. Unlike Santa Clause, we waste no time crossing off our list and the best spots do tend to fill up quickly so even though we’re about four months away, figuring out an event space now will lead to less stress in a season that should be all about good tidings.

Save the office newb (or yourself) some work and celebrate the holidays at one of The Drake Hotel’s unique and distinct locations. All you have to do is put yourself on the nice list by contacting us and we’ll handle everything from there!

DOF party

Drake One Fifty is a no-brainer if you’re located in the Financial District. For a classy and intimate affair, this downtown spot is perfect. It can be dressed up or dressed down to fit your needs and there's just nothing like being able to loosen up your tie and let down your hair just steps away from that corporate life.

UG party

If you’re looking for something a little more classic, give our flagship location, The Drake Hotel, a try. Whether you want to dance the night away in the Underground, share a meal in the Lounge or bond over beverages on the Sky Yard (FYI it's open in the winter), there’s truly something for everyone. BONUS: last minute Secret Santas will appreciate having the Drake General Store across the street!


If turkey ain't your thing, go for a real bonding experience and crowd pleaser. Drake Commissary invites foodies into the kitchen for a hands-on pizza making class. Cover your hands in flour and enjoy the process of making pizza from scratch using the Commissary’s top-notch ingredients. Added incentive for commuters: there’s parking.

Treat the team to a charming evening in Prince Edward County. The popular summer destination becomes a winter wonderland, with crisp air and beautiful art to match the breathtaking scenery. People will be buzzing about this day for months after the holidays over, and not just because of the wine. Drake Catering can provide food and drinks and the whole Drake experience wherever you are.

Tasty food, unique cocktails, aesthetically pleasing art and fun photo booth memories are guaranteed at each of The Drake’s unique locations. Contact Dave Elliott, Senior Sales Manager, by phone at 416.531.5042 ext. 113 or by email to get winter event planning off your to do list today.
