As part of Drake Hotel Properties recent expansions, the Junction Triangle will now get a taste of the hip trendsetter all to itself. The Drake Commissionary, opening this spring at 128 Sterling Rd. (right beside Henderson Brewery) will be an 8,000 sq. ft. creative culinary and social neighbourhood hub.

Drake Commissary will offer fully customizable event planning that will include every step from innovative food and drink, to art, music, and décor. Expect expert event coordination for anything from afternoon brainstorming sessions to team building events where you can get your hands messy at a cooking class. And of course, there will be a bar for after work cocktails accompanied by talks from artists.

Continuing with their promise to serve healthy, unprocessed food, the new bakery will be dedicated to exploring new and fresh creations daily using locally sourced products. The whole place is set to become a “gastronomic town square” that blends the edges of guests and chefs.

The Drake’s expanding empire now includes the Commissary, Drake Hotel, Drake One Fifty, Drake Devonshire Inn and multiple Drake General Stores. Each venue encapsulating and reflecting its own unique neighbourhood.

At Henderson, brewing is a mix of innovation and creativity. Their main beer, Henderson’s Best, is a modern interpretation of the beers first brewed in Toronto at the beginning of the 19th century.

Henderson Brewing was founded by three colleagues sharing a love of beer and brewing and many years of combined experience in the area. Their tasting room is open to guests for pints, bottle and growler sales. They are an award winning, individual, local brewery in Toronto.

What could be better than having your event in the same place as the beer is brewed. They have capacity for 180 people at the brewery, 3 different venues separately or all together and also a large parking lot that can be rented in conjunction with the space. Depending on how much of the lot is used, this can increase capacity.

The brewery space is available for rent Friday-Sunday and the Tap Room and office space is available 7 days a week.
