The Best Rooftop Bars: The Lounge at the Thompson Toronto

September 7, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Thompson Toronto Rooftop LoungeRooftop bars continue to be all the rage, especially when there's an infinity pool to be gawked at. One of the finest in the Americas? The sultry lounge at the Thompson Toronto, where 360 views of Toronto's skyline and Lake Ontario are yours for the ogling. Since opening in June 2010, the Thompson Toronto has gotten rave reviews for its ultra-sleek aesthetic, trendy location "in the diverse and artistically driven King West Village," and-- you guessed it-- otherworldly rooftop lounge, the first in the city. By day, guests can take a dip in the pool, and by night, they can lounge in the poolside cabanas and get intoxicated by the cityscape. An exclusive retreat for hotel guests and lounge members, the bar was singled out by Frommer's as one of the "10 Best New Hotel Rooftop Bars Around the World."
