We asked Liloo Alim, Head Concierge at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, to gather the savviest sightseeing suggestions she could find—not just her own but also those of the local connoisseurs she works with every day at the Hotel. Explore the city’s rich diversity of cultures, lively arts scene and lakefront parks.
Sophisticated, stylish and with interior design inspired by a 1920s Parisian bistro, La Societe features an extensive wine selection and cocktails list, classic bistro fare, and two outdoor patios, one at street-level and one on an outdoor second-floor terrace overlooking the Bloor Street “Mink Mile” luxury retailers.
Arts on the Waterfront
Check out Harbourfront Centre, a marvellous arts complex on Lake Ontario. From the Power Plant contemporary art gallery to avant-garde theatre at World Stage, globally inspired dance in the NextSteps series, the hugely popular International Festival of Authors and so much more, the centre is buzzing year-round.
Off the Beaten Path
A little known gem, the Textile Museum of Canada explores textile arts from 2,000 years ago to today. The collection has works from more than 200 countries, including traditional fabrics, garments, carpets, beadwork and basketry. With films, workshops and hands-on galleries, it’s a fun and interactive spot for all ages.
The new Four Seasons Hotel Toronto will open in summer 2012. The perfect spot for a casual meal or post-dinner drink, dbar at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto will offer wines by the glass and craft beers on tap, in addition to hand-crafted cocktails created by Chef Daniel Boulud’s premier mixologist. The floor-to ceiling windows add sophisticated glamour to the lounge’s contemporary design.
