Library Bar at Fairmont Royal York Hotel

Toronto, Canada

Classy modern cocktails organised by literary genre – including Science Fiction, Folklore and Poetry – ferry thirsty drinkers on a journey through time on the menu at the historic Library Bar at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. Long a lynchpin in the city’s cocktail scene, a recent redesign has updated the bar’s interiors with a fresh new look that references its Art Deco heyday when celebrities such as Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington graced its threshold. Now, the stately lounge is well-positioned to entertain travellers for another century to follow. Don’t bypass the main liquid attractions: the Best Sellers section of the menu contains fan favourites from over the years, like the Domenica (an Espresso Martini twist), and the crown jewel of the programme, the Birdbath Martini, features gin or vodka formulated by an Ontario distillery specifically for the bar, served tableside.
