    The Drake has a longstanding commitment to art + culture alongside community engagement and world-class hospitality. We care deeply about our guests, employees, neighbours, artistic collaborators, partners and suppliers, and it’s our vision to create an inspiring and inclusive hospitality-driven experience for all. 

    The Drake strives to create welcoming environments and to provide places and spaces that encourage everyone to gather and engage. We believe that we must nurture the communities who generously share their experience with us while helping us build a more vibrant and immersive experience for all. We are committed to social causes that promote equity, diversity + inclusion, racial justice, food security + insecurity, youth and the arts and LGBTQ2+.
