Toronto’s newest downtown hotspot, The Parlour opened its doors this past fall with the help of the famously popular social networking group, Toronto Business Casual. The opening of the venue with its Roaring Twenties themes embodied everything the venue is about; timeless sophistication and elegance catering to “socialites seeking habitual enlightenment.”
The Parlour, located in the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district, is a newly established 20’s theme lounge. It is a place that embraces “style, music, art and fashion” and “a destination for those seeking refuge from the main,” as stated by GM Rebecca Anderson. The venue transports you back to a sexy 1920’s speakeasy, where a night of pleasure awaits. The space, a dimly lit enviroscape with glass chandeliers hanging from the ceiling is plush with vintage velvet furniture in deep jewel tones providing comfort and style for the patrons.
The event was themed to the nines with staff dressed in 1920’s attire – dark sexy corsets and feathered head piece’s for the ladies while the men dress up in dress shirts, ties, vests and stylish bower hats. Food and cocktails were a collaborative effort between The Parlour, Maker’s Mark, and TBC. The chef of The Parlour devised a tasting menu that included such things as shaved roast tenderloin with Dijon Aioli, cucumber watercress tea sandwiches with lemon aioli, and wild mushroom caps with citrus crab mousse. Three complimentary signature cocktails were concocted with help of Maker’s Mark and included a delicious Bourbon Float, a fresh Mint Julep Bourbon Cocktail, and a traditional Bourbon Sour. A mixologist from Maker’s Mark was in attendance to provide a bit of education to the guests for anyone interested in mixology.
Founded by Tanya May, TBC has been in existence for the last 2 ½ years and boasts an impressive 4800 members. With a mission to be “classy yet unpretentious”, this inclusive social club unites young, urban professionals “who are busy with their careers” and who are looking to have a unique social experience “that they wouldn’t have time to organize on their own.” The events allow for great networking opportunities for those who are settled in their careers and who are also in a transition in their life. May, who is a warm, charismatic, and dedicated leader with a genuine passion and love for uniting people and for her organization, ensures members feel a sense of community and that each guest sincerely enjoys their time at every event.
To market this wonderful event, Toronto Business Casual used social media outlets such as their company website, Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook, and several blogging sites such as blogTO and 49st.
