Midcentury Loft: Photo And Event Space
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 curated 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.

Absolutely amazing. From the start to the finish, the space was lovely, the event was lovely. And Matt(the host) was so lovely. Matt is the best host I’ve used, he respected us as guests, our space, as well as our comfort. So amazing! Please book with him, I definitely will be doing such in the future!
Matt's loft was absolutely perfect for my husband's surprise birthday party and far exceeded all my expectations! We had the maximum number of people allowed in the space and it still felt extremely comfortable and spacious. There are several thoughtfully arranged seating areas that allow large groups to mingle in an organic way, in addition to the casual yet cozy dining arrangement that the folding tables and chairs provide. The kitchen and living space is so well-stocked and well-designed. Everything was spotless. The bedroom was cozy and private, and the bonus cat friend chilling inside was a real sweetheart and didn't bother my breastfeeding guests at all (although I will note that the heavy sliding door isn't completely flush with the wall when it closes - this meant that keeping our small dogs out of the room was a bit difficult, but otherwise the door wasn't an issue at all in terms of visual privacy). Everyone was so charmed and intrigued by the decor, the lighting, and the general vibe - my friends all had an amazing time just exploring and relaxing and some already want to rent it themselves. Onto the host himself! Matt was an INCREDIBLE host. I have absolutely no complaints at all and was so blown away by his helpfulness and his patience. He answered all my questions in advance in a timely manner, he was kind enough to work out a great price given my booking details, he helped with setup and takedown, and he provided very clear, useful tips for parking and for generally maximizing the space. I had to arrive late and he was so flexible and accommodating to my guests who had arrived early for setup. After we cleaned up, he even set up the swing for us to try even though it was past the booking time. Although we had difficulty with audio when Chromecasting Google Photos to the projector screen from certain iPhones, he was quick to respond to our questions and came by in person to try and help. We had no issues casting from Android phones. Those of us who drove had no problems finding the free parking on Parliament. One thing to note is that there is no elevator in the building, so you will have to take some stairs. Overall, we had an amazing experience renting and enjoying the loft space, and couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much Matt! We hope to be back sometime!
Thanks - wouldn't change a thing!
Matt & Gwen are fantastic hosts, they helped from start to finish to make our events look great! I would definitely book their space again😊
Our event at Midcentury Loft was unforgettable. The hosts were absolutely incredible and surpassed all expectations.
Amazing space !!! This place is beautiful !! I loved it
Matt and Gwen were fabulous!! They were very kind and the place was lovely. All of my guests commented on how beautiful the place was. The venue was stylish and so well decorated. I had a last minute request (less than a day notice) and really thankfully, Matt accepted the request. Thank you for letting me use the place to gather my family and friends for a meaningful celebration!!! I would recommend this place to everyone!!!!
Matt is an incredible host ! The place is so cute and homey. From the moment we met he ensured my guests and I were well taken care of. I would recommend this space for a small group setting event. Matt is also easy to communicate with and has a lovely family. Thank you for lending your home. :)
Somehow this space looks even better in person than in the photos, and that's saying something. Matt was super accommodating and easy to reach. Would use this space again.
This was my second booking with Midcentury Loft and I will definitely be booking again!
