Although winter is quickly approaching, patio season is far from over. There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting outside and having a few drinks with your friends – that’s why heated patios are key for comfort. We’ve gathered a list of our favourite toasty Toronto patios- make it your goal to visit one this weekend (bonus points for hitting all 3):

Gusto 101
101 Portland St.
I mean, how amazing does this patio look? It ticks off all our boxes – great aesthetic, comfort and delicious Italian food.

Cold Tea
60 Kensington Ave
This Kensington market secret is the best option for a low-key night out with friends. The patio is the closest thing you’ll get to a backyard house party- with little dress code expectation and a lot of room for all your shenanigans.

El Catrin
18 Tank House Lane
If you’re in the mood for the perfect mix of authentic Mexican cuisine and aesthetic, the El Catrin will be your new weekly Friday night stop. Located right in the heart of the Distillery district, the rooftop, heated patio makes for the perfect cozy night out.
