Any quiet public place open at Yonge/Bloor in Downtown Toronto?

Hope everyone is staying safe!
Was unsure, which would be the right forum, therefore posted it here.

I need a quiet room/even a public place to study and talk quietly to clients (over the phone/online) around Yonge/Bloor. It would be for occasional usage, and I could inform 3-5 days in advance, when I plan to visit these places (if that is preferred). Earlier used to use reference library and other public libraries, but now these places are closed.

Prefer something that is relatively safe (and hopefully stays warm as the city is getting cold now), social distancing among patrons is maintained, and are open between 11am and 10pm during weekdays and weekends (this timing could be more flexible from my side).

Bonus if the place offers an internet connection (even public shared network would work).

Seems asking for a lot, but would be happy to know some thoughts/leads. Would also assist to know the options even if some places have some minor payments on hourly basis involved). Basement on houses around these area could also work.

Happy Halloween in advance!

Would this be for you alone or face to face client meetings as well.
Maybe look into Air BNB's in the area?
Probably most ideal but costly.
Otherwise a food court area close by which may be less ideal and not fit your parameters.

Thanks, gh05t!
Looking at Airbnb around the area.

This is for me. Whenever talk to clients, that would always be over the phone or online.

Regus @ 2 Bloor W
WeWork @ 33 Bloor E

Looks like there are others. Can find them by zooming into Yonge/Bloor then type 'coworking space' into searchbar.

House too noisy, trying to find something temporary until things open up.

I would look at that werid little mall you access from bay st near Cumberland. It’s way out of date and always feels abandoned has a small food court. Don’t think it gets very well. Maybe once it gets real cold those in the know use it to get to bloor/yonge station or into Manulife centre. The Manulife centre is nicer but noisier.

There’s also a werid little semi PATH type area under CIBC at Yonge bloor.
Autocorrect sucks

Sheraton hotel, business conference room would fit the situation. If not a hotel room

Strongly discourage inviting clients to a hotel room... That's either really weird or really creepy. Lol! :D That's pretty funny
