The Library Bar at The Fairmont Royal York Hotel Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Library Bar is ideal for after-work cocktails (named for Canadian authors) and classic Afternoon Tea.

Not just for tourists and the Happy Hour office crowd, The Library Bar continues to impress discerning palates with tasty meals (kitchen open past midnight for the jetlagged), well-mixed literary-themed cocktails and good whisky. Margaret Atwood’s Margarita or Joseph Boyden’s Grapefruit V&T ($15) might just inspire you to pen the next great novel.  Afternoon tea ($48) is a Fairmont delight; the generous server happily packs extra scones for next-day enjoyment at home. Dinner appeals with well-executed favourites like steak frites ($28) and a delicious clubhouse sandwich ($23). Young-at-heart diners may be charmed by miniature bottles of ketchup and local honey.

The Library Bar is both romantic and appropriate for a business meeting, leopard-print overstuffed chairs notwithstanding. Everyone from Emirates flight attendants and Air Canada pilots to nervous first-date couples feel at home in this classy yet comfortable lounge. The Library Bar isn’t cheap (Afternoon Tea at The Ritz actually costs $8 less!) – but offers pretty good value and solid taste for the Union Station PATH corridor.
