Tips from locals
A beautiful historic hotel that serves up brunch + lunch + dinner + drinks. Live music and trivia nights.
Has good food and a nice bar, sometimes has live music or art shows, karaoke and other community or evening events.
Rotating art exhibits, dancing, comedy, etc etc etc! Check their calendar to see what’s going on.
Since you're staying with us, you won't need a place to stay at the Gladstone, but its a cultural hot spot on Queen West.

“The Drake Hotel is a hotel where guests can stay at. It has a eatery place to enjoy fresh food and a cafe. I held my birthday celebration here. There's the Drake Underground where local artists perform. Close to a Metro and Freshco grocery market. The Drake Hotel is Toronto’s multi-level, multi-purpose rock and roll boutique hotel, and self-proclaimed “hotbed for culture.” The place has been around in one form or another since 1890, but in 2004 after three long years of rehauling that began in 2001, was resurrected as what it is today, a restaurant, bar, and venue with a rooftop patio and one of the best restaurant burgers in the city. Historic elements like the grand staircase in the front lobby are incorporated with an industrial yet kitschy feel throughout the hotel, created by the in-house team in collaboration with 3rd Uncle Design. The Drake Hotel is a hospitality venue on Queen Street West in Toronto, Ontario, Canada near Parkdale. In addition to a nineteen-room boutique hotel, there is a restaurant lounge, corner café with street-level patio, Sky Yard roof top patio, and the Drake Underground basement nightclub and live performance venue. The Drake is similar to other small concert venues in Toronto such as The Silver Dollar Room, Clinton's Tavern, Lee's Palace, and the Horseshoe Tavern. The Drake Underground primarily features indie acts, though past noted performers include M.I.A. and Beck. ”
