What an amazing place to have a party. The service was great and the food was even better. This place was totally redone to match the initial opening back in the 1930's.

I have used this venue a few times and have never been disappointed. They can cater the ambience and vibe based on your preference. Staff have always been great! Parking can be a challenge, especially if you have people attending from out of town. Although there is parking underneath the building - It just can be difficult to find if not familiar with the area. I have recommended the location a few times.

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.

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.).
