Earlier this month, I had a great excuse to get back to nearby Toronto for a one night getaway, as a friend was in town to check out the city sights. I was able to choose the place for our mid afternoon meet up, and was excited to have a chance to enjoy some conversation over a champagne and cocktail selection at the Clockwork bar at the Fairmont Royal York.
This beautiful and easy going but luxurious lobby bar has a classy but comfortable vibe, with a great selection of drinks to enjoy. I decided on a glass of cool prosecco from Treviso and my friend enjoyed the cleverly named Clearheaded Harvey cocktail. The space was buzzing with the anticipation of Saturday night fun about to get underway (many were in town to check out the Leafs-Canadiens hockey game). The service is friendly and professional here, and along with awesome atmosphere and décor, makes Clockwork a place worth your time.
The historic Fairmont Royal York is a great place to stay as well, and the location can't be beat.
