Best View of Town

This has to be a tossup between Canoe on top of the TD Centre at the 54th floow and Panorama on top of the Manulife Centre on the 51st floor. Both of them are pleasant evening lounges, Canoe caters more to the corporate clientele whereas Panorama caters more to the young yuppies looking to take their dates out for a fine experience. I personally liked hanging out at Canoe more than Panorama though, but the view is just breathtaking from both ends.

And whoever thinks that the view from the CN tower is better, give these two places a try first and you’ll regret the $20+ you paid to go up an elevator on an antenna.

    Canoe is great – I went up there just to take pictures one day and also got some pics from an office across the hall that was not being used at the time.

    i have to admit that the scene from panorama is amazing but i can’t stand the atmosphere there. at least not the last time i went (which i admit was awhile ago).

    would like to see what canoe is like. i haven’t been yet.

    Panorma is great, but be sure to arrive before 7 if you don’t want to pay a $20 “cover” just to get in. Panorama is more about martinis and cocktails than food – they have a good selection of appetizers and some pizza, but not too much beyond that.

    Couldn’t see much from up there when it was smoggy, would be great on a clear day though, I’m sure. Another bonus at Panorama is that they have couches on the balconies on either side (North/South) and I found it be a really nice and comfortable environment.

    panorama is great – my favorite place to take guests from out-of-town. i’ll have to check out canoe one day soon – thanks for the tip!
