The Rooftop at the Broadview Hotel

The Toronto skyline is one of the most appealing features of cocktail hour in this city, but until recently, all of the best vantage points have been on the city’s west end. That’s different now with the new Broadview Hotel’s indoor-outdoor top floor, which offers sweeping views not only of the city’s skyscraper-filled core, but also of the sparse expanses that stretch to the city’s east and south. See the city from a fresh angle while sipping a cocktail and snacking on beef tartare, scallop ceviche, jerk-seasoned ribs and a hefty chuck-brisket burger for which it’s worth making a reservation.
