The top 5 new patios with the best views in Toronto

The top new patios with the best views in Toronto offer some pretty sweet sights of our fair city. Instead of opting for a secluded back patio or a people-watching spot, head to one of these brand new watering holes to see everything from sky rises to the waters of Lake Ontario.

Here are my picks for the top new patios with the best views in Toronto

Lavelle
In the market for something truly lavish? Try to snag yourself a table, deck chair or outrageous pool float at Lavelle. From its balcony spot you can see the city from all angles, making it the perfect place to do some rooftopping photography without the risk.

The Slip

The Slip
If you want to spend your day staring out onto the lake, pretending you're in cottage country, head to The Slip. The brainchild of the Harbourfront Centre and Boxcar Social offers a kickass view of the water that'll get your mind off of construction, traffic debacles and skyscrapers. There's room fro 250 patrons, so go ahead and bring your friends and followers.

Bar Hop Brewco

Bar Hop Brewco
Venture south of Queen West and head up to the rooftop patio at Bar Hop Brewco for a stellar view of the downtown core. The patio is pretty impressive, decked out with hanging lights, bright accents and its own massive bar. If you've got your squad with you, no worries, there's room for 110.

Macho Radio

Macho Radio Bar
Macho Radio Bar flaunts a massive 100-seater patio looking out onto Canoe Landing Park. Want the best view in the house? Try to snag one of the sofa spots by the sidewalk (they're the comfiest and therefore the most coveted).

Cherry Street BBQ

Cherry Street Bar-B-Que
You may have to crane your neck a little to take advantage of Cherry Street Bar-B-Que's view, but hey, what's a few sore muscles? This street side spot is situated smack in the middle of the Port Lands, meaning that when you peer over the fence you'll see the waters of Lake Ontario and our city's skyline.
