Our Favourite Toronto Rooftop Bars and Restaurants

Toronto Restaurant and bar

If there’s one thing that stands out about Toronto, it’s the views. The Toronto skyline is so iconic — music album covers and even Superman’s Metropolis skyline was inspired by Canada’s largest city. From the flourish of colours emanating from the CN Tower to the pockets of light in every unique neighbourhood, Toronto’s skyline (like its food) is top tier.


To catch these views, you’ll need to reach for the sky — literally. You might not know this, but Toronto’s rooftop restaurant and bar scene is growing. Sure, nothing compares to cities like Hong Kong and Barcelona, but these hot spots are next-level with their food, service and of course, the views. So whether you’re planning a girls night out or romantic date, our favourite rooftop bars and restaurants won’t disappoint. Read on to learn more about Toronto’s best rooftop bars and restaurants.

Casa La Palma

Address: 849 Dundas St West, Toronto ON

Perched atop La Palma on Dundas West sits Casa La Palma, a contemporary designed rooftop bar oozing with good vibes. The interiors are reminiscent of Palm Springs while the cocktails evoke a signature flair only La Palma can create. The view is a cozy vantage point of Dundas street and the bustling Trinity Bellwoods community. When visiting, try the Pisco Inferno — it’s our favourite.
