Escape the Heat At Cool Toronto Summer Attractions
As temperatures rise, Torontonians and visitors alike find all sorts of ways to cool off. Of course, there are obvious things like strolling the world-renowned museums across the street from our Bloor Street luxury hotel, or shopping the day away at one of the city's many malls. But summer in Toronto can also be full of unexpectedly refreshing treats, sexy seasonal attractions, and incomparable takes on classic ways to escape the heat. Here are a few to consider during your stay with us at Intercontinental Toronto Yorkville:
Frozen Beer, Sushi & Oysters
4848 Yonge Street
Two words: Frozen. Beer. Everyone's favorite summer refresher has been taken to the next level at Japanese restaurants across Toronto, and this is one of the best. Renowned for their oyster bar – stocked with sea-fresh bivalves from east and west – the signature rolls here are edible works of art. But it's all about the Polar Ice Sapporo. First, your glass is filled with ice-cold brew. Then, it's topped with frozen beer that's the consistency of soft-served ice cream!
"Day-to-Night" Pool Parties, Miami-Style
Cabana Pool Bar
11 Polson Street
Open at noon every day except Monday, Cabana Pool Bar brings a slice of Miami to Toronto every summer, with live music, DJs, dancing, and up to 2,500 sexy revelers soaking in the sun. A sprawling pool, skyline views, Slushie Bar, restaurant, cabanas and daybeds make it hands-down the place to be this season. They even offer complimentary hair and make-up for ladies on Saturdays and Sundays!
Immerse Yourself in the IMAX® Dome
Ontario Science Centre
770 Don Mills Road
With 44 speakers and a screen 4,500 times larger than an average TV, there's nothing ordinary about summer movies at this behemoth of a theater.
