We're located on the NW corner of the intersection of York Street and Adelaide Street West.
How do I get to Drake One Fifty from Union Station?
Head north on York Street until you’re north of Adelaide Street West.
How do I get to Drake if I’m riding the TTC?
Take the University line to St. Andrew station. Walk north to Adelaide and then turn right and walk one block. Once you’ve reached York Street, you’ll have arrived.
Where can I park my ride?
The underground parking lot for 150 York Street can be found off Adelaide street. If you are driving east on Adelaide, stay in the left lane after you cross University Avenue. You will see the entrance to the lot on your left hand side; there will be a red "P" sign for our building's underground parking. If you cross York Street, you've gone too far!
You can also turn left onto York Street, drive past the building (located on the northwest corner of York Street and Adelaide Street West) + turn left into the parking lot at the back of the building, which is also marked with a red "P" sign.
There are many other lots in the vicinity a short walk to the corner of York and Adelaide + Drake One Fifty.
What can I expect from Toronto’s Financial District?
A classic Toronto neighbourhood that’s beginning its cultural renaissance, the Financial District is an eclectic ‘hood that plays host to a lively collection of boutiques, skyscrapers, parks, restaurants and theatres. Take a stroll east or west, there’s something for everyone and we'll help you find it! Chat to our expert concierges, hosts or check out our Twitter feed and read our Blog to find out what's happening on our block and beyond.
I heard that you're a hotel, too?
Unlike the Drake Hotel on West Queen West, Drake One Fifty is a stand alone restaurant. We’re proud to call the Financial District home + we’ve made an outdoor patio as much of a priority as you do. Come visit, we’ll save you a spot! And if you are looking for somewhere to stay, you can book your sleepover at our flagship The Drake Hotel or at Drake Devonshire.
Is Drake One Fifty accessible by wheelchair?
Yes, Drake One Fifty is wheelchair accessible. The restaurant is on one floor and is accessible at street level. The access ramp for the building is located on University Avenue at the 181 University entrance to the building. Follow the sign directly towards 150 York Street inside the building and you will see the entrance to the restaurant. Accessible washrooms are located in the lobby of 150 York Street.
Is the Drake One Fifty menu the same as the Drake Hotel menu?
We’d like to think we’ve mastered classic dining with a twist. Our Corporate Executive Chef Ted Corrado has created a menu at Drake One Fifty that reflects some of our favourites from Drake Hotel, while offering very distinct dishes that are only available here. Our Drake One Fifty menus are here, and you can take a look at what the Hotel is cooking up here.
Are Drake One Fifty’s art exhibits and gallery spaces accessible to everyone?
Absolutely! We proudly share all our exhibits and gallery spaces with neighbours and guests alike. Our space plays host to annually rotating installations, so be sure to catch our very own curator for the inside scoop on upcoming projects or even an impromptu tour. Enjoy more info on our Art Blog.

Is there a dress code?
We always love dressing up for a night out to enjoy eats and drinks! Everyone is always welcome and at The Drake we encourage you to take our “come-as-you-are” philosophy from head-to-toe. As long as you’re not planning on pulling an Emperor’s new clothes on us. Please note; guests who do not share our philosophies of inclusiveness, or do not enjoy our tunes, eats and cocktails with demonstrated respect and courtesy for our staff and their fellow guests may not be permitted to enter or may be asked to leave.
What is The Drake’s policy on ensuring safety for all guests and staff?
The Drake’s mission is to act as a community hub and foster a positive, inclusive and safe environment for all guests and staff.
We have a zero tolerance policy for violence and harassment on our properties, for both our staff and our patrons. Our policies to ensure guest and employee safety include: extensive staff training at time of hiring, regularly refreshing and updating training throughout staff tenure, regular review of policies and protocols to ensure they meet or exceed the latest government requirements, legislation and industry best practices, and collaborating with community and industry partners to stay at the forefront of developments in the sector. Equipping our team with the tools to handle complex situations and maintaining the safety of all staff and guests is of the utmost importance to us at The Drake. Our security systems are tested and upgraded on a regular basis and include comprehensive video camera technology installed throughout all of our public spaces.
Guests who do not demonstrate respect and courtesy for our staff and their fellow guests may not be permitted to enter or may be asked to leave. Should a guest fail to comply, the police may be contacted.
We are working closely with organizations, including the Sexual Assault Action Coalition and Dandelion Task Force, to help develop and implement education and training specifically for the food and beverage industry on preventing sexual assault and harassment. This education and training will supplement our current training protocols. We also host a monthly forum for industry members that addresses timely and relevant food and beverage industry topics.
We are currently implementing the Ask for Angela program at all of our locations and will have this fully in place by mid-February. Should you ever find yourself in an uncomfortable or unsafe situation at The Drake, please notify one of our team members immediately. Our goal at all times is to create a safe environment. We are here to help, should you require situational intervention or assistance getting home safely.
For further questions about our policies and procedures or for more information on our industry sessions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
I heard that Drake is expanding! Where are your new properties?
We're so excited to continue to grow our West Queen West brand into new neighbourhoods. Our first property, The Drake Hotel, serves as our Drake HQ- it’s always open and is your very own hotbed for culture. Drake Devonshire Inn, our newest property, is the perfect escape located in Wellington, Prince Edward County. Next on the horizon is the Drake Commissary, a bakery, larder and bar in Toronto's Lower Junction neighbourhood, opening in the spring of 2017.
Where can I find the Drake General Store?
Our Drake General Stores are lovingly curated with Canadiana treasure and curiosities and you don't have to go far; you'll find a micro Drake General Store right at the entrance of Drake One Fifty! Each store reflects their unique neighbourhood, so come by and visit us at one of our locations across Canada. If you like to shop from bed, our online store is open 24 hours.
Does Drake the rapper own Drake One Fifty
We enjoy all things Toronto, including Drake! We opened our doors at The Drake Hotel in 2004, long before @champagnepapi was #the6ix god.
Four courses, four short films. The Drake is hosting it's first Supper Club Cinema on March 5th with curated content by founder Gabrielle Leith, featuring a collection of local and international shorts by all female filmmakers. In anticipation of the event, Gabrielle talks to Haya Waseem, director of Shahzad. >>
