The Addison Residence Knows How to Have a Good Time

The Addison Residence is a lounge like no other. With the energy of a bar, but the eye catching look of a lounge, The Addison offers a unique space, fit for an energetic gathering with you and your closest friends or clients.


After entering the main foyer, you are given the choice of three specialty rooms to start your night off right. The kitchen area, living room and rec room; each of them offering a unique club experience. The Kitchen area feature its main bar where you can indulge in specialty crafted drink of the season. If you’re feeling a little dancy and chatty, head over to the living room. This high energy room offers live music and a nice space to sit down and enjoy your friends company. The last room is the Rec room. Leave your adult mindset at the door, because this room is for the kids in all of us. Featuring foosball tables, TVs, and so much more, this is definitely the room to visit.


Decorated by Lisa Ho, one of Australia’s finest in modern decor, you are immediately captivated by the variating looks in each room. The Inspiration for this venue comes from retro homes in Beverly Hills. The vibe is created through the use of open space and dark wood retro furnishings. Palm leaf prints can be found all throughout the venue, really sealing the California vibes.

Pants Off For Prostate Cancer

Filed under Contest, Past Events


Date: Thursday, June 12, 2014
Time: 8PM – 1AM
Location: The Hoxton, 69 Bathurst St, Toronto

On Thursday, June 12th, Pants Off for Prostate Cancer has returned for its 5th year as one of Toronto’s hottest – and most revealing – events. This year, we were grabbing our sticks, dropping the puck (and our pants), and hitting the ice for Pants off: Protect Your 5-Hole, a hockey and ice inspired fundraiser that guarantees a slap shot evening. People grabbed their helmet pads, and – errmm- their jockstrap, and joined a team of 500 of Toronto finest as they check their pants at the door and celebrated bare legs in support of the research and support programs of Prostate Cancer Canada.

All Proceeds from Pants Off for Prostate Cancer have brought benefit Prostate Cancer Canada — the only national foundation dedicated to the elimination of the disease through research, education support and awareness.

Congratulations to @ErikaKonori that won two tickets by retweeting
the Pants off Prostate Cancer post!
