Very experienced in managing high-end events, the staff are attentive and organized. The venue itself is stunning. Overall it's hard to be disappointed with this level of quality.

“Art Deco event venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

This venue is located in College Park and the old Eatons building. It was almost forgotten and lost when it underwent an impressive and faithful renovation in the early 2000s to restore its art deco heritage. It's mainly used as an event venue for things such as the marketing awards or fashion shows. You can possibly get in during Doors Open although the lineups are long. One of the principals - Jeffry Roick - once designed/catered a dinner event I led at Bombardier in Montreal and it was quite unforgettable (metal rivetted plates, rack of lamb, cloud projections, etc.).

“One of the best examples of Art Déco interior”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2009

The Carlu is one of the best examples of Art Déco interior in the world. Recently restored, you can find it now in all its original splendor. It is rented for different events, but it can be visited on the occasion of concerts. Don't miss it.
