ISO: Supper Club for Birthday away from downtown

Help!

I'm in search of a dinner & dancing venue for my birthday in June. The only problem is that it falls on the weekend of the G8 summit and much of T.O.'s downtown core will be chaotic.

I was thinking of going to Maro, as Liberty Village will be a bit removed from the craziness. (The menu however, is not overly exciting.) Are there any other suggestions? Ideally, food should have a fairly universal appeal due to the different types of friends I have, and the crowd should be at least in their late 20s.

Thanks in advance!

    Honestly I can't think of a place inside or outside of the city which is a true supper club which actually has good food. The closest thing to it is Ultra and the food there really is not good.

    I believe Maro is owned but the same folk who own Brant House. The food at Brant House isn't any good so I'm not sure you'd get much better at Maro.

    I would suggest that you pick a place with good food for dinner and then find something close by for the second part of your evening.

      Alleycatz? Biermarkt? Both have okay food and a live band for dancing. I can't vouch for the crowds, but both definitely have dinner and dancing in the same venue. It's usually hard to find both in the same place.

        Globe on the Danforth tho the crowd skewers older.
