Venue Suggestions for a Networking Event (Downtown Toronto)
Does anyone have any venue suggestions for a professional gathering/networking event for 15-20 people (downtown Toronto)? We're planning this event after work on a weekday.
In the past, we've booked a private room in a restaurant; however, usually this means a couple of large tables, which don't allow for much mingling with others that aren't immediately around you. Ideally, I'd like to find a place where we can order a bunch of appetizers and drinks and be able to walk around and talk...perhaps a room with a few smaller tables with some breathing room to chat and walk around? I welcome any suggestions that you may have...
Thanks in advance!
Maybe beerbistro? I remember having a look at their private dining room and I think it can be set up as either a dining room or with smaller tables.
This is a shot in the dark, but what about a gastropub? The Queen and Beaver website seems to indicate availability of private rooms/separate space, and it might be a nice option if you're looking for something slightly more casual.
Thanks so much everyone for your suggestions!
There's a minimum spend at Beerbistro and, as I'm not entirely sure how many people will show up, I wouldn't want to pick up the tab if in the event we fall short!
Globe Bistro looks great but it's a little bit out of the way. I'd like to make it really convenient as many will be downtown (e.g., in the financial district).
I'll be giving The Queen and Beaver a call shortly! It looks like a nice casual venue that might work out well!
Thanks again. Cheers!
C'est What has two private rooms off the main room, behind the bar. I've attended a few networking events in that space (both spaces combined).
