Drake Art

Toronto Hotel Art Culture

The Drake is filled with thoughtful contradictions and a playful intersection of old and new. We opened on Valentine’s Day, 2004 with lots of love for the historic relationship between artists, Toronto exhibitions and great hotels; a community-minded spirit is something close to our hearts. Urban and artistic hotels have played a big role as hang-outs for the local creative scene so these are the ideas that inspired us to create a hotbed for culture.
