After an extended summer the fall weather is only now making an appearance (better late than never), and you know what that means. Ready for it? Holiday party season.

We want to ensure that you (and whoever you celebrate the holidays with) have the best possible time whether it be for a leisurely lunch, an upscale dinner, or a company-wide bash with all of the trimmings.

Skip the stress and celebrate the holidays at one of The Drake's’s notably unique locations. All you have to do is put yourself on the nice list by contacting us and one of our event gurus will paint the picture of what’s possible when you choose to host with Drake!


If you’re looking for something classic, give our flagship location, The Drake Hotel, a try. Whether you fancy a soiree with a bevy of passed bites, custom cocktails + fireside chats in the Lounge, or an evening of dancing the night away in the Underground, or want to think outside of the box with a boozy hot chocolate station 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!

Drake One Fifty is a no-brainer if you’re located in the Financial District and want a short commute between your office and the destination for your annual festivities. For a classy yet intimate affair, this downtown spot is perfect as it can be dressed up or dressed down to fit your needs. There really is nothing like being able to loosen up your tie and let down your hair just steps away from your corporate alter ego’s cubicle.

If turkey ain't your thing, go for a team bonding experience and crowd pleaser at our newest Junction Triangle outpost Drake Commissary. Drake Commissary invites foodies into the kitchen for a hands-on pizza making class or to pony up to a satellite bar to learn the true art of cocktail creation with one of our Drake mixologists. Whether you want to cover your hands in flour and enjoy the process of making pizza or reap the rewards of a self-made Manhattan, Drake Commissary’s party portfolio is sure to provide ample material for post-weekend water cooler chat. Added incentive for commuters: there’s parking.

Want to really go above and beyond? Treat the team to a charming evening at the Drake Devonshire in Prince Edward County. Hire a bus, cruise the rails (that’s County slang for VIA Rail) or inquire about an overnight stay and have guests drive the back roads for the penultimate holiday bash. 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 long after the holidays over, and not just because of the wine. Sucks to be on next year’s party planning committee if you go this route.


Not sure about a homebase yet? Drake Catering can provide food and drinks wherever you are. From your living room to your boardroom, we bring our unique personality + endless energy to any party.


Tasty food, unique cocktails, aesthetically pleasing art and fun photo booth memories are guaranteed at each of The Drake’s unique locations. Contact our special events team by phone at 416.966.9155 ext 3 or by email to get winter event planning off your 'to do' list today.
