Drake in the Community

The Drake is as much a hotel and restaurant brand as it is a cultural community centre, essentially a home away from home for locals and neighbours. From free pancake breakfasts to promoting local artists and musicians, supporting our friends, neighbours + many of Toronto’s iconic cultural institutions has been a big part of our mission since day one. With three properties and a handful of Drake General Stores, our civic-minded spirit is something close to our hearts. Just as the West Queen West neighbourhood which is the home of our flagship Drake Hotel rapidly changes on a daily basis, so do the needs of all the communities we belong to. Nurturing genuine relationships with local residents and partnering with friends and neighbours is one of the ways we show our love for the people that make us who we are. We'll continue to develop our community outreach and interaction with measured steps as we grow.
