The Thompson Rooftop

550 Wellington St. W., 416-601-3595

Nowhere in Toronto can our world-class status be more easily confirmed than from a perch at the Thompson’s rooftop bar. Even in winter, the view is really that impressive, and it’s best enjoyed with a sophisticated drink. The Millionaire #3 ($15)—with Belvedere vodka, Cointreau, grenadine and raspberry syrup—is sweet but not cloying, thanks to whipped egg white. A pub grub–style menu (spring rolls, calamari) is adequate if uninspired, but, hey, that’s what the view is for.

  • Giancarlo

    “Pick-up potential” at Toronto Temperance Society? Odd categorization, given the fact that membership rules include “Do not approach a lady unless she approaches you first.”

  • Brian

    Incorrect address. Should be 782 Queen Street East, not 82.

  • Toronto Life Staff

    Thanks for catching that, Brian. It’s been fixed.
