GLOBE EARTH comes to Bloor West Village

I alluded to something coming to Bloor West Village in another post, it's going to be a new Globe Earth. The location is 2448 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6S 1R2 which was previously "MY PLACE"

It should be open in 8 to 10 weeks. It's a really large space and can hold over 800 people!

  1. Great news! I'm very excited about this.

    1. 800 people? Is it a restaurant or a banquet hall?

        There are different sections, there is a large room that can be used for a wedding that holds a few hundred. I forgot the size for the restaurant, but it is at least 150. The building was once a Loblaws store.

      2. It's good news, yes, but I would have preferred burgers priest, QMP or a new hooked location :-)

            haha, we can't be choosers in them parts but hopefully they can put together something sustainable unlike my place did... i read they are going to make part of it a bakery for the other locations. That rooftop has a ton of potential lets hope they do it up, unfortunately i just think the space is too big but am crossing my fingers

        1. It's been almost 8 weeks. Any new news?

            Next week, I thought I saw in some thread somewhere... about the same answer I got when I was at Globe last week.

              I was told that the first day they will be open for regular business is Saturday May 21.

            2. It was open for business this evening - looks nice inside, really looking forward to checking it out
