Want to get out and have a stylish night in the city? Look no further than these chic Martini bars in Toronto. With the incredible variety and styles, there is a place for everyone. Let’s take a look at a few of Toronto’s best Martini bars.

Pantages Hotel Martini Bar

A trendy, downtown setting is where you will find this sophisticated bar a mere hop, skip and jump away from the main attractions. Take full advantage of the double-sided fireplace, comfortable sofas, stylish bar chairs and grand piano. Through the floor-to ceiling windows watch the city come alive at night or enjoy relaxing in the private confines of the library. If you like live entertainment, make sure to show up on Fridays and Saturdays.

Pick up an evening for two in Pantage’s fashionable lounge, choosing two Martinis each from the menu in addition to two delicious dishes.

Boutique Bar

A stylish bar in Church and Wellesley with a great patio and wide diversity of cocktails and martinis. The owner, Julien Salomone, has studied mixology and brings all he’s learned from France, the United States and Toronto to the Boutique Bar. There are an assortment of tequila, rum, gin and vodka mixes and an extensive wine list is available. You can enjoy the selection of imported and domestic beers, if that suits your tastes. The bar is modern and chic, with mirrors, candlelight and an in-house DJ who plays music at a volume where you don’t have to repeat yourself. The wraparound table surface of the front patio is a must see.

Roof Lounge

If you want a breathtaking view of the city of Toronto, this Martini Bar, located on the 18th floor of Park Hyatt, is the place to visit. The outdoor patio will let you see the city, but if you’d rather be indoors, there’s a patio inside as well. Comfy and personal, the Roof Lounge has a 1950s atmosphere thanks to its fireplaces, dark suede walls and leather chairs. Top off your Martini Bar experience with some wonderful food by Executive Chef Joan Monfaredi.

Library Bar

In the Fairmount Royal York Hotel you’ll find a martini bar called the Library Bar. Known throughout time for its calm and casual atmosphere, it’s a perfect pitstop for a business lunch, after work drinks, seasonal cocktails or simply a lovely meal. If you are more in the mood for whisky, the Library Bar has a wide variety in its Whisky Library. On Saturdays and Sundays, afternoon tea is served – a feature that’s been in place way back since 1929. In the warmer weather you can walk through the delightful bee apiary and herb garden on the rooftop.

Pravada Vodka Bar

For those who like their vodka martinis, Pravada Vodka Bar is a Russian-themed bar with over 70 vodkas from 20 countries. You can have vodka tasting lessons, if you are the type of person who always looking to learn something new. The bar’s incomparable look can be attributed to its regal Louis XII decor, while the entertainment is also one-of-a-kind. You can enjoy complementary appetizers while listening to lounge music, live entertainment or, on Saturdays, even watching an aerialist show. If you are looking for a Russian martini experience, this is definitely the place to be.
