1 – Cocktail Party at a Speakeasy

How about a dimly lit room with jazz or blues filling the background noise and a surfeit of delicious cocktails served to you and your guests?

Hosting a cocktail party at one of the many speakeasies across the city screams Toronto. A speakeasy cocktail party can be a memorable affair for all your guests.

Tucked away behind an art gallery at Dundas West, Cry Baby Gallery is a prohibition-esque bar where there is no prohibition. If you’re looking for a low-key birthday party with a delicious array of cocktails, this is where you should head to.


2 – Picnic in Toronto Island Park

Nothing defines the old-age charm of quaint birthday parties quite like a picnic at the Toronto Island Park. A picnic birthday party is often overlooked, but let us assure you that it’s an absolute gem of an experience.

Picture yourself and your gang, a blanket spread out over the sprawling greens, and light-hearted conversations with picturesque beaches, barbeque pits, and picnic tables all around you. Pack up some gourmet sandwiches, cupcakes, and a bottle of wine for a riveting experience.

The best part: you get to celebrate your way. From playing frisbee to barbecuing – it’s your space, your occasion, and your rules.


3 – Pizza Birthday Party

Now who needs a reason to have pizza? And to add to it, there’s a quintessential neighborhood with an iconic cafe in Toronto that pretty much takes the slice for bona fide pizza lovers.

So gather the gang and crawl through the iconic Little Italy district. Head to the Sicilian Sidewalk Cafe, the oldest gelato spot in the city. Surround yourself with the aroma of lusty crusts and toppings, think of the oozing cheese, and add the jubilation of your birthday to it – and we’re all set for a memorable affair.

Head to CN Tower and take snaps at the observation deck with panoramic views of Toronto. You can also hire a professional photographer for the day to create crystal-clear memories in HD.


5 – A Boat Birthday Party
