EVENT | Impressive cocktails & tasty nibbles to #PayPalIt at the Beverley Hotel's rooftop patio

What goes well with sunny weather and a group of friends? If you guessed patio, you're thinking what we're thinking. Last week, we went on a mini 'patio-hopping' on Queen St. with a group of bloggers and started our night at Fonda Lola. Our second stop was the modern & chic Queen West neighbourhood gem, The Beverley Hotel's rooftop patio - one with a gorgeous view!

This boutique hotel is inspired by the creative spirit of the original Queen West neighbourhood.  The hotel's love for arts, music and the sense of being part of the community is also evident in their food & drink. Chef Eric Wood uses community sourced ingredients for his culinary creations and carefully thought-out & handcrafted cocktails are pieces of art themselves.

I, for one, immediately fell in love with the rooftop patio.  There are two sections, a more cozy & intimate area by the bar and a smaller section facing North (where we were).

As we sipped on cocktails made by Manager, Aja Sax, we were also spoiled with delicious hors d'oeuvres to keep our bellies full!

Pork Cheek with celery root puree, scallion ginger glaze & pickled apple

Tuna Tiradito with radish slaw & leche de tigre

 Foie Gras au Torchon on crostini with smoked grape & walnut

Vanilla Poached Tomato with goat cheese mousse & avocado

Pear & Manchego Salad on flatbread

As the food kept flowing out of the kitchen, Aja was kind enough to give us an impromptu cocktail class 101! We made one of Beverley Hotel's most popular drink, the Old Fashioned.


After this patio discovery, it won't be long until we will be going back for more. It's not just the beautiful view they have, it's the combination of their classy yet cool ambiance (it's not snobbish), refreshing cocktails, delicious food and of course, the convenient location on Queen St.


Special thanks to PayPal Canada for taking us on a patio hopping tour in fancy suburbans and Beverley Hotel for their hospitality.
