Toronto restaurant (or bar) with beautiful Xmas decorations

I realize this is a little bit of a strange topic. But, my gf loves Christmas, especially the decorations with lots of lights, tinsel, etc, etc. Last year, we were in Montreal at this time and the Sheradon there had a really great bar and restaurant with huge Xmas trees with lots of sparkle, lights, d├ęcor, etc.

Is there a place in Toronto like this you guys are familiar with? Even if it is a hotel bar you have seen? The atmosphere can be quiet, I would just like a nice-ish place to eat or drink that's really Xmassy. Thanks so much for any help.

  1. your gf is not alone, i am a sucker for it as well. nothing makes it feel more like christmas than beautiful lights and decorations!

    1. while I have not been last year -- we went to the lobby bar at the shangri la many times last year -- it was beautifully decorated and there was a pianist and singer....a beautiful fireplace -- all in all it felt very very festive and we will go back for sure this year/

      1. If you eat downtown it's also worth wandering around the PATH, I'm not even super Christmassy and I appreciate the decorations this time of year. My mother-in-law comes downtown to union and walks up the to Eaton Centre via the PATH every year to see the decorations.

        1. The Christmas Market in the Distillery is on from Nov. 29 - Dec. 15. Beautiful to walk around the cobblestone streets and then lots of selections for drinks, coffee, lunch, dessert, etc.
