Tap into Toronto’s history with an event at The Berkeley Bicycle Club. Once the tony Jarvis Street mansion of the Gooderhams, the city’s first family of whisky distilling, the stately red brick home is now part of Berkeley Events’ venue options. The circa-1891 Romanesque Revival home is architecturally stunning, ideal for posh events of about 100 (150 reception-style). Inside, rich woodwork, gleaming hardwood floors, original lighting fixtures and accents convey the building’s historical character.
A glassed-in conservatory offers floor-to-ceiling windows and marble-topped bar. Three smaller rooms, featuring original working fireplaces and pocket doors that extend access to each space, are perfect for intimate gatherings and meetings. A lovely wrap-around patio with reception space for 190 embraces the exterior. A leafy tree canopy, wrought-iron fencing, boxwood hedges and vintage lampposts set the outdoor stage. Bonus: Berkeley Events offers a full-service planning and catering team to assist with details.
