With its Lobby Lounge, rooftop Sky Yard bar and Underground club, it might be more appropriate to say NOW readers picked the Drake as best cocktails bars. Unifying the lot is a crack team of shakers and stirrers including Toronto bar stars like Gord Hannah and Simon Ho, who whip up finely tuned takes on classic cocktails and innovative originals. The Drake knows it's much easier to stand around looking beautiful when you have a well-made drink in your hand.
