Meeting At The Hoxton – An Event Planners Dream

The Hoxton is the latest venture by business partners Jesse Girard and Richard Lambert, – and comedian Kenny Hotz – the guys behind Parts & Labour and The Social.  The venue is named after London’s Hoxton neighbourhood and is located in Toronto’s hip King West area steps from the Thompson Hotel.

The Hoxton highlights include a great stage area, state of the art sound system making the acoustics phenomenal, and a 8,000 sq. ft. space that can hold up to 600 people.  The main idea was to keep the space versatile, with lack of excessive décor and the large number of installed flat screens it is an event planners dream. The Hoxton allows customized decor and can accommodate the bells and whistles for whatever event the venue is hosting, whether it is corporate or private bookings.

In just over a month the Hoxton has played host for events celebrating TIFF, Fashion Week, store launches, and this week is their first large scale fundraiser “Fireball” (

Expect The Hoxton to be a crowd and corporate pleaser. and @the_Hoxton

Dolce Social Ballroom

dolce1We recently introduced you to the hottest patios in Toronto. With delectable cuisine, incredible music and the best people in Toronto, the patios we highlighted will absolutely live up to hype this summer.

One of the patios, Dolce Social Ballroom, opened recently and we were there. Located just at the corner of King St. W. and Bathurst Ave., Dolce, as it is affectionately known, opened its patio in coordination with some of the youngest and hottest promotion companies out there: Lyme Productions and NuVibe. Between the crowds each company brought and the atmosphere of the natural paneling and white booths, the patio opening was an incredible event.

And we all know that King St. W. nightlife has always been above the standard. Small enough to be intimate but with the opportunity to share a drink with some amazing people from this great city, Dolce’s patio left no room for disappointment. dolce2

On the second floor of 647 King St. W., the streets below seemed miles away. La Dolce Vita, the beautiful life that is Dolce Social Ballroom promises to be an amazing patio this summer.
