Last week, we sat down with Josh Hendin of Treeling Catering over lattes and got our creative juices flowing. We are so lucky to be planning and designing and catering stunning events in this eclectic city, but we wanted to dig a little deeper. What event venues are untapped here? Are there any amazing spaces that could be the coolest event spaces ever? Given that finding a venue in the city of Toronto is so extremely competitive, we through we’d shed light on some of the most unique hidden gems this city has to offer.
Brunch at a Toronto bar can both cause, and cure, your hangover. Start your day off on a good note at one of these watering holes for morning meals paired with boozy spiked coffees and mimosas.
Here's where to brunch at a bar in Toronto.
I've always thought of the Junction as Roncesvalles older (and cooler) cousin, where you can get both a manicure for your dog and a hot hamburger sandwich with mashed potatoes for like $6. And the Junction's 3030 is one of the best bars in the city for people who neither need their bar experience to include ingesting Jagermeister without a glass nor require a $17 Manhattan with homemade bitters.
What's a show here like? Terrific. Similar to your high school gymnasium, 3030 simply employs a large curtain to separate the expansive bar in half. But since the bar is 3030, the two spaces are still bigger than one normal space — not to mention that each side has its own bar. Despite the cavernous cement surroundings, the acoustics are excellent. The raised stage is enormous, which calls for larger acts but a solo artist with presence is able to make it work. Still fairly new to the scene, 3030 already offers some excellent programing including live music and DJs.

3030 is a hotbed of culture in the ever-more-happening Junction. The cavernous space is a bit of everything: a bar, restaurant, art gallery and concert hall rolled into one. Paintings from local artists oversee patrons downing local brews and tucking into eats before heading to the back room to take in a show.
