Whether you need a location for a comfortable business meeting or a classy date spot, d|bar’s air of professional intimacy and casual elegance inspires an upscale feel without disrupting the welcoming atmosphere.  Located inside the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto's Yorkville neighbourhood, d|bar is spacious and accessible.

The restaurant treats its guests to comfortable armchairs where they can enjoy their meal or cocktail as they bask in the pleasant natural light coming in through the floor-length windows. The temperature is comfortably regulated, allowing for a reprieve from the sweltering summer heat or a haven from the winter chill.  The staff and management alike are helpful, friendly and ready to accommodate your needs, and welcome you and your service animal if necessary!

Within d|bar, there are clearly marked black edged on white stairs, as well as an elevator to bring any guests to the second floor. There are some areas within the bar which are inaccessible due to steps, and there is some textured carpeting in the casual sitting area.  The elevator itself is accessible through a 45-inch doorway, and is 65x80 inches.  The space is illuminated by soft yellow lighting and the buttons are labelled with Braille.  The emergency exits for the bar are clear and easy to access, with bright red signs clearly marking them.  

From Sunday to Wednesday the venue is open from 11:00am-12:00am, and from Thursday-Saturday it remains open until approximately 2:00am.  The peak hours during the day tend to be 12:00pm-2:00pm for lunch, and so a later lunch is recommended for those patrons who may be more sensitive to noise. From 4:30-6:00 or 7:00, the restaurant switches to a cocktail bar, with those hours extended to 9:00pm on Tuesdays. Sundays feature brunch, as well as a live DJ at 9:30pm, making these hours somewhat louder.
