Have you been at Yonge and Gould lately?  This stretch of Yonge street has lost the lights above the record stores but has gained a brand new student centre for Ryerson as well as a new event venue. Aperture Room is a stylish event space located on the third floor of The Thornton-Smith Building in the heart of downtown Toronto. The space features original exposed brick walls and three magnificent skylights. Aperture Room can be the perfect space to host an unforgettable event. The space caters to all types of social and corporate events and can accommodate 120 guests for a seated event and 180 guests for a standing reception.

The building was designed in 1922 by architect John M. Lyle, who is also credited with designing Toronto’s Union Station and The Royal Alexandra Theatre. There is a lot of history in The Thornton-Smith Building; Aperture Room was designed to keep that history, as well as the history of Yonge Street in mind. Despite all of the renovations, this building has stayed true to its award-winning original architecture. Aperture Room has become one of Toronto’s most popular venues and has already hosted a number of weddings.
