We swear the nice weather is coming. We’re praying for it, anyway.
But while summer is taking its sweet ass time, there are patios open all over Toronto including the King West neighbourhood which has some really nice spots to grab drinks, a bite to eat and take advantage of the warmer days we have had so far.
Not far away from the Rogers Centre, A.C.C. or Toronto’s Entertainment District, King West has become increasingly popular for its amazing array of top restaurants and bars that have popped up over the past few years.
Here’s a list of ten amazing King West patios whether you want to pre-drink before an event, celebrate after a home game win or wake up with an eye-opening brunch after a hard night out.
Of course, this isn't a complete list. Know about any other patios in King West worth mentioning? Make a place suggestion below.

Tucked in a King West alleyway is Brassaii - an upscale lounge and restaurant with a cobblestone courtyard and patio capable of seating up to 100 guests. The patio features two separate bars and the monthly Le Brunch parties hosted by Kleen Media continue to be as popular as ever.
C Lounge is also geared more towards clubgoers than casual passersby coming in to sit and have a drink. Their 2,500 square-foot patio features a pool, surrounding palm trees and private VIP cabanas.
If you’re impressed by a massive beer selection, Bier Markt is the place for you. They’ve got the ultimate beer list in Toronto, with over 150 brands from 30 different countries. The food, however, isn’t always the greatest (or cheapest) and the patio along Portland Street isn’t the biggest.
Fynn’s of Temple is another Irish pub in King West with a large patio away from the street and along the side of the building. There are weekly food and drink specials including deals on appetizers, Alexander Keith’s, cocktails as well as their brunch menu served on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am – 4pm.
This Irish pub features a huge patio that stretches around the corner of King and Niagara. There are lots of specials each week including a Saturday and Sunday brunch menu that includes $2.99 Caesars served from 11am – 3pm.
Directly beside the Crush Wine Bar patio in the same alley is the Firkin on King patio where guests can take advantage of daily drink specials and $5 appetizers from Monday to Friday.
This is another upscale spot with a massive Asian-inspired patio that offers a nice feeling of seclusion with a lush tree garden separating it from the bustle of King Street. Again, this won’t be your cheapest option if you’re looking for drinks and a bite to eat.
Established in 1998, this quaint King West café is open for breakfast, lunch and brunch every day of the week. It’s nice if you’re looking for something other than greasy pub food and opt for more coffee shop-style meals like gourmet sandwiches, wraps, salads and sweets. Oh, and they serve booze.
Crush Wine Bar specializes in carrying fine wines from over 50 countries with food pairings. The patio is located alongside the building in a private and spacious alleyway just off King Street.
Located just off King Street at the corner of Portland and Wellington is Bar Wellington, set inside a renovated Victorian home originally built in 1891. Known by regulars as “The Welly,” the bar features a spacious side patio as well as a separate rooftop patio.
