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.
If you’re into contemporary art, we’ll definitely get along - those who know us best say we’re a hotbed for culture. Read about what goes on in the art world at Drake! >>
From free neighbourhood pancake breakfasts to promoting local artists, supporting our friends and neighbours has been a big part of our mission since day one. >>
