What do you think of when you hear “rosewater”? Do you think of an alluring perfume? Everlasting beauty and youth? Heavenly relaxation experience? So many beautiful things to associate with your wedding day.
You will find Rosewater Room on Toronto Street – in the words of historian Eric Arthur, “the finest street in Toronto… It had all the charm of Europe. People unknowingly sensed its quality – businesses were unhurried, motor cars hardly exceeded the pace of the carriages of half a century ago, and the buildings on both sides of the street had about them that dignified venerability that commands immediate respect.”
19 Toronto Street, this richly textured building with its arch-headed windows recessed from curvaceous corbels, in turn recessed from projecting cornices of the roof… is called, completely unromantically, Consumers’ Gas Building. Let’s step inside.
Inside. Step beneath the waterwall into the lower-level room called Supper Club. With its soft white colors and luminiscence, mirrors and LED pillars, mahogany floors and British Royal Doulton china, this room is perfectly suited for a romantic but modern wedding celebration for your party of up to 80 guests.
Suitability. Supper Club lends itself to host both your afternoon ceremony and your French-inspired fine dining experience crafted by the Liberty Group. In order to enhance the sensual experience of dinner, the room will undergo a complete makeover, while you and your party will enjoy cocktails reception in the bar area upstairs. And after dinner, it’s going to be time to dance until 1 am. You will have a lockable bridal suite and coat check, private bar and private restrooms at your disposal. The venue is steps away from downtown hotels and TTC; paid parking is available nearby. The venue is also wheelchair accessible.
Costs. There is no venue rental charge, but minimum consumption will apply to your catering bill. Venue will come with complete set-up, including furniture (square tables), china and linens. Catering packages range from $105 to $125 per guest (including standard beverage package, but not including late night stations and dessert tables), and come with great flexibility in customization of menu and beverage options. Gratuity of 18% will apply, along with tax. Off-season discounts are available between January and March.
