The Drake Hotel opened its doors on Valentine’s Day 2004 after extensive renovations to our original turn of the century building. From the outset we sought to connect travelers, revelers, neighbours and culture creatures and we think the hard work has paid off. The Drake has come to be known as an energetic hub for visual and performance art as well as dining and hospitality. From live music in the Underground, to award winning cocktails on our climate defiant, year round Sky Yard roof-top patio; from ongoing art exhibits and yummy eats, there's always something happening at our West Queen West outpost. Mix that with a classic Drake cocktail and we're pretty sure you'll soon see why we're a hot bed for culture.
