Do you have something to celebrate? Choose one of Toronto’s unique historic sites to host your event. Heritage party venues add something special to any celebration, whether it’s an engagement party, bar or bat mitzvah, wedding, birthday, or anniversary.
One of Toronto’s most elegant historic sites is the Eglinton Grand. Built in Art Deco style, this former movie theatre retains all of the grandeur and glamour of 1930s Hollywood. At the theatre’s opening in 1936, guests were wowed by the lobby’s high ceilings, sparkling chandeliers, murals, and Art Deco fireplace. Rich fabrics, gold statuary, and fine architectural details graced the theatre space. The building was declared a heritage site in 1993.
Today the Eglinton Grand has been restored and reimagined as a full-service party venue. An extensive menu (including an in-house kosher kitchen option), state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, and a friendly and professional staff make the Eglinton Grand the perfect venue for your event!
Why choose a heritage site for your party? The truth is that
an historic site will lend your party an ambience that a boxy banquet hall can
never match. If you’re celebrating a wedding or an anniversary, it’s wonderful
to be surrounded by reminders that we are part of a history stretching back
into the past. A venue rich in history
and tradition brings a certain richness and timelessness to any celebration.
In addition, there’s no need to "decorate” a heritage site.
While newer venues lack character, historic venues have personality! With a
rich history behind them, historic sites are visually interesting, and often
have fascinating back stories. Examples of beautiful heritage party venues
include The Guild Inn, and the restored Eglinton Grand.
When choosing a location, consider affordability, location,
size of space, menu, services available, and many other factors. If you are
leaning toward an outdoor venue, make sure that you have a backup plan in case
of inclement weather.
In addition, make sure to plan ahead. Most heritage party venues
in Toronto are booked many months (if not years) in advance. Be sure to talk to
booking staff about packages that might be available for your event.
