TORONTO — Drake’s first stand-alone restaurant, bar and art space, Drake One Fifty, will officially open Wednesday, Oct. 2.
“I am immensely proud of the amazing venue our entire team has created. It is extremely original, eclectic and in keeping with our consistently high standards and deeply entrenched values,” said Jeff Stober, CEO of Drake Hotel Properties. “We’sve poured our hearts and souls into this project, and we’re very excited to finally share the space with both Torontonians and visitors alike.”
The 6,000-plus-sq.-ft. space features a covered patio, a micro-Drake General Store, a vintage-inspired photo booth, a 60-foot oval marble bar, a unique cork ceiling and a performance stage for DJs and live programming.
The menu, created by executive chef Ted Corrado, will include Canadian-inspired dishes such as roasted shoulder of lamb ($27), grilled sardines ($15), the new Drake burger ($24) in addition to house-made olive-oil cake ($9) and daily homemade pies ($9). The menu will be complemented by a range of cocktails and wines that are sourced locally.
