One of the Best Patio Bars in Toronto is Right Onsite. Here's Proof!

Savor Summer at the Best Bars in Toronto

Sidle into Proof Vodka Bar, a special reprieve for small plates and craft cocktails at our luxury Yorkville hotel. Always stylish, the scene is even sharper in the summer, as SkyLounge opens May-October. Offering the same selection of delectable Spanish pintxos and inventive cocktails, it moves everything guests love about Proof into the fresh outdoors. It's this mix of relaxed, leather sofa lounge-style seating and minimalist courtyard décor – just steps from Bloor Street – that has made SkyLounge one of the best Toronto bars to savor in the season.


Spanish-Style Small Plates

Pintxos are the Basque cousin of Spanish tapas – small, expertly prepared dishes for sharing. These delightful bites are the heart of our culinary offerings, in spirit with the communal nature of the space. Be sure to add these favorites to your next spread:

  • Drunken Manchego – Cheese "drowned" for two weeks in oil and spices.
  • Catalan-Style Meatball with Glazed Peach
  • Duck Confit with Red Wine Reduction
  • Smoked Salad of Grilled Vegetables
  • Clams with Merguez (Lamb) Sausage and Fava Beans
  • Seafood Paella – Prepared in Wine, Saffron, & Chorizo Broth
  • Lemon & Lime Panna Cotta with Rhubarb Compote


Hand-Crafted Signature Cocktails

Equally as artful as the food, the drinks are some of the best you'll find in town. True to the name, many incorporate vodka, while all feature an impressive dose of creativity. Seasonal highlights include:

  • Sparkling Sangria – A summer refresher with bubbles and fruit.
  • Proof Crush – Red wine adds a tannic twist to this citrus cocktail.
  • Smoked Caesar – Canada's favorite drink gets a healthy dose of smoke.
  • Ginger Cosmopolitan – You'll never go back to the traditional Cosmo.
  • Summer Thyme – Vodka, herbs, and fruit, served over a sphere of ice.
