Midcentury Loft: Photo And Event Space


127 Reviews

About

An incredibly unique, beautiful and wide open 1,200 sq.ft mixed-use 'hard loft' located in a 109 year old converted warehouse in downtown Toronto with a capacity of 45 people in many configurations.

This thoughtfully outfitted 'Midcentury Modern' space has been lovingly designed as a chic and stylish urban oasis in a desert of stone and glass towers and nondescript 'condo party rooms'. There's a very lived-in feel, as this space is our home outside of rentals and hosted events.

We've had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of photo / video shoots, bridal/ baby showers, weddings, private birthdays, plant nights, secret supper clubs, fashion shoots, lifestyle, product shoots, art gallery/showings, chef catered dinners, music videos, retail launches, speaker series, the list goes on.

*Note on pricing: Listed rates are 'starting at' and include 5 guests or fewer. When you reach out, I will quote based on: number of people, the date, hours required, and overall impact.

**Film / Video / TV production? This space is perfect for it, sound safe throughout the days, evenings & weekends.

Amenities:
- 11 ft ceilings, exposed brick and beam, true hard loft experience
- Space for 45 people / guests with some seating and standing configurations
- Unique and hip lighting, crystal lights and Edison bulbs throughout
- Comfy seating, vintage pieces and benches, period lamps, rugs
- 87 beautifully maintained and loved plants
- 24 Folding chairs, x2 6 foot folding tables
- Full kitchen, moveable island with some accessories for food events, serving plates, etc.
- 80" HD projector with 5.1 Surround sound, Chromecast for laptop input, Youtube, Spotify, laptop direct display
- Includes super fast Wi-Fi to keep you connected
- Bedroom for hair/makeup/changing room or filmed scenes (only if booked in advance)
- Large safe Green P Parking lot 2 mins away
- 4th floor walk up, **no service elevator usage without written agreement**

*There is a cat in the space, her name is Neko, she's super friendly, and will spend most of her time sleeping in the bedroom. Please bring antihistamines for allergies.

Absolutely gorgeous place! I had a dinner party with around 35 people and everyone was comfortable and happy. I didn't have to do any set up beyond food and setting out the folding chairs - the sound system, lighting, decoration, and cleanliness were all event ready from the moment I came in. I am VERY happy. Thank you, Matt, for sharing this space, and huuuge kudos to your wife for her design skills.
