From 6 – 10 PM on Friday, April 7th 2017, you and your best men can indulge in all things style at The Men’s Market TO.

Toronto, a city known for innovative style and trends, is the perfect place to hold the Men’s Market, a trade show geared towards men looking for a way to one-up their street style in regards to fashion, food, drink and more.

This 19+ event features everything from barbers and clothing boutiques to craft breweries and local food spots that are sure to be a hit with stylish Toronto men.

Maryam, one of the George Brown planners says; “It’s wonderful way to spend your Friday night, unwinding with great music, fabulous food and drinks,”, all the while shopping and browsing this one of a kind market specially designed for gentlemen with great taste for style. “Rest assured my team and I will try our best to make this night a memorable one for you. We are also excited to announce that Lost Craft will present The Lost Lounge!”

Fashion Vendors in our event will be sure to have you decked out head to toe in the latest fashion trends from all over this great city. You’ll also be able to network with like-minded businesses who believe in showcasing Toronto’s top fashions through the modern day man.

Real Sports Bar & Grill

Real Sports Bar & Grill, just a brief walk from the ACC, exudes the rush and excitement of a sporting event in itself. It’s a place where sports heroes gather and fans can live the dream.  What you may not know is that Real Sports Bar & Grill is a unique and exciting meeting venue as well and has a variety of separate areas.


The versatility of the space has a capacity of corporate groups ranging from 30 to 40 people to 1,000 plus. The Restaurant features 3 different bar’s, a VIP Player’s Lounge that has hosted the likes of LeBron James, Wendel Clark, Michael Strahan, and Drake amongst others; along with a set of Private Suites on the second floor that are surrounded by clear railings.  Making it impossible to miss any of the action on the 199 flat screen HD TVs and the monstrous 39 ft. diagonal HD TV above the bar. The beauty of the space is the built in entertainment value of the restaurant, and the food.


In fact, the staff spent six months crisscrossing the country eating the best and worst of sports bar food before they decided on what they would serve at Real Sports Bar & Grill.
Be it a corporate festivity, a presentation, or a milestone event, the screens can be used to brand your event should you take on the task of renting the entire space or a minimum cost of F&B.
