Abstract: We provide a group-theoretic realization of two-parameter quantum toroidal algebras using finite subgroups of $ SL_2(\mathbb{C})$ via McKay correspondence. In particular our construction contains the vertex representation of the two-parameter quantum affine algebras of $ ADE$ types as special subalgebras.
