During breakfast hours ‘O’s’ excellent food selections are complemented by the extensive list of coffee’s and specialty drinks. Whether you are in the mood for coffee, espresso, latte, or mocha, ‘O’ has what seems to be a never-ending list of selection. The array of choices extends to the Lunch and Dinner menu. A variety of burgers, pizzas, and poutines are among the list of comfort foods most popular at ‘O’.

If you are looking to host a late night event, ‘O’ offers a long list of red and white wines, craft beer, martinis, scotch, whisky, cognac, and cocktails- perfect for serving at your event.

We checked out the venue and it is quite casual so may be a good fit for staff events. We felt the rental and min spend was a bit high for the venue but the location is excellent as is beside the King subway.

Address: 7 King Street East, Toronto, ON
Hours: 11am-11pm (weekdays), 11am-12am (weekends)

The CityEvents team attended last weeks Opening Party of the Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse on Adelaide Street West. You might have already experienced the Copacabana’s concept as they also have a restaurant on Eglinton Street East and in Niagara Falls.

Copacabana is a unique and exciting concept : superior food quality, exceptional service -waiters are moving around the restaurant with seasoned and perfectly grilled meat, you will definitely remember your night over there!

Copacabana is an all you can eat with a fixed price of ($37 during the week and $45 on the weekend). We ate so well that night, the meat was perfectly roasted and there were more side dishes than we could try.

Beside their delicious food, you will enjoy this beautiful venue which can fit until 320 guests seated, on two floors where you will also enjoy their live entertainment! The top patio is the highlight with an open concept over Adelaide Street.  The patio has already been booked for a number of corporate events and BBQ’s.  It is a perfect spot for your office afternoon summer social.

On May 8th 2014, CityEvents staff was invited to the Ballet Event for “A Hidden Parisian Gem on Eclectic Ossington”, a networking event and venue open house. Located at 227A Ossington Avenue, the intimate atmosphere of the venue is immediately apparent.

Under their dim light and candles, the staff welcomed us with hors d’oeuvres. In addition to the appetizers, special drinks were also featured including, The Strawberry Aloe Hibiscus, Lemon Grass Delight and The Lychee Martini. These cocktails  were a bit out of the ordinary but very tasty.

Ballet Event House has been known as the hottest venue on Ossington since 2013. This particular event, featured  a sensual dance show, a Jazz & Blues live music performance with Errol Fisher, which held a real experience to foretaste just for a moment, before coming back to reality!
