Oliver and Bonacini welcomed Big Rock Brewery to Toronto with a collaborative, unique two-level, fully accessible heritage space, known as Liberty Commons. The modern brewpub venue offers up two separate and unique areas to rent out or go big with a full restaurant buyout.

Barrel Room is a great space with room for either a breakfast rendezvous or a full seated dinner of groups of up to 32, or have a reception style gathering for groups of a 47. The Barrel Room comes equipped with a 60” flat screen television, but you do have to be conscious of shrinking the guest list if a/v is required. The room is backdropped with an upcycled beer cask wall and exposed brick.

The Drink Tank offers an airy space with slightly smaller capacity. Up to 24 people can be seated or 30 people for reception style mixers, private get-togethers or business breakfasts. The Drink Tank gives guests a great visual of the brewmasters at work in the on-site brewery, perfect for a beer lager enthusiasts or an ale-themed event.

The entire restaurant will get 173 guests seated or a large soiree with 340 standing. For any option, a cocktail services can be provided,  with limitations on draft, and you can also tailor the beverage selections to enhance your guests’ experience! Match that with a customizable menu – including vegan and vegetarian- and you have a great event on your hands.

On Thursday June 6th, the CityEvents team attended the, “Give Me Liberty After Work Party”. The event was located on Fraser Avenue on the west side of Lamport Stadium. Although the weather was uncooperative a good turnout of residents, business owners and Liberty Village lovers braved the wet weather. These brave souls enjoyed the many tents that contained food, drink and local businesses from the Liberty area. A DJ helped keep the mood light as partygoers enjoyed networking as they bounced from tent to tent. These tents included Good Life, AutoShare, Zipcar, Aroma, Yogurty’s, Maizal, Vogue Supperclub and 25 Liberty to name a few. Besides the weather the event was enjoyable and a great way to experience some of Liberty Villages many offerings.

The Galleria at the Liberty Market is an architectural wonder and unique feature within the Liberty Village neighbourhood. The semi-enclosed glass atrium structure covers what was previously open space between the two building. This area houses The Shops at The Liberty Market Building, a range of retail and storefront offerings that cater to both tenants and visitors alike.

There’s something invigorating about stepping into this complex! The space is a beautiful cobblestone walkway about 100 metres long, is filled with lots of great retail shops, pubs, bars and restaurants throughout making it a great outdoor venue space and if weather isn’t on your side its covered!


Set in the heart of one of Toronto’s fastest-growing neighbourhoods, Liberty Market Building offers retail tenants the opportunity to capitalize on a steady stream of both local and visiting clientele. With the influx of new townhomes and condominiums in the area, as well as an expected 30,000 new residents, the neighbourhood’s local demographic of young urban professionals, as well as the building’s close proximity to the downtown core and existing tenant base, provide an attractive opportunity for commercial interests.

Liberty Social Hour: Carnival del Sol

On Wednesday April 18, 2012, CityEvents, RPC Group and Bar Vespa collaborated to welcome many Torontonians for this month’s Liberty Social Hour.  Taking place in the heart of Liberty Village, this season’s social hour was themed as a celebration of spring.  Local residents of the village, as well as others from around Toronto were pleased with the opportunity to socialize and get to know what this new neighbourhood is all about.  When the evening began, the sun was shining and the drinks were flowing.  Bar Vespa, the host restaurant, was filled within a few short moments, and was ready to encourage the crowd to mingle.

As the night led on, the amount of people in attendance picked up, and so did the conversation.  It was clear that many of the guests had different reasons for attending Liberty Social Hour.  Some were there just to meet up with a friend, others were curious to see what the hype was all about.  Each guest had heard the buzz about the social hour in different ways.  For some, it was hearing through past attendees, others through social media, and for a small handful, they were persuaded by the many posters surrounding the Liberty Village area.

Overall the environment was very friendly and outgoing. The same guest that stayed for 30 minutes was just as satisfied as the guest that stayed for four hours.  Whether the guest was there to have a drink with old friends, or a stranger to the community, everyone felt welcomed and walked away having had a great interaction with another.  As guests made their way out of Bar Vespa, they were surprised with a gift bag filled with exciting new products and deals from within Liberty Village and the surrounding area.   As well, they received a special treat contributed by Bar Vespa.

Liberty Social Hour is an event meant to bring social interaction to many types of Toronto individuals.  It allows one to learn more about what Liberty Village has to offer, as well as the type of people who fill it.  Make sure to keep an ear out for the next Liberty Social Hour coming up in a few short months.  Be a part of the growing neighbourhood of Liberty Village, and have the chance to be a part of the excitement.
