Amazing wedding venue
We are so happy we celebrated our wedding at 2nd floor events! The venue is beautiful and very functional for ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing all in one great space in the middle of downtown Toronto! The food was delicious, they have an in-house kitchen and chef. Amanda, the venue coordinator, is extremely helpful, responsive and a pleasure to work with. Everything worked out so well and we could not be happier! We also got lots of compliments on the venue from our guests. We highly recommend it!Sent on 26/10/2019

Amazing contemporary loft style venue with the best staff!
This is the perfect downtown Toronto venue for any wedding! I had my wedding at 2nd floor events in October 2018. All of the staff are friendly and easy to work with. They are very transparent in their pricing and the services they offer. My coordinator, Amanda, share in my excitement and took the time to understand my vision and the feeling we wanted for our day. She was able to answer all my questions promptly and she always offered advice and suggestions based off of what has worked in the space before. The menu choices are creative, fresh and great quality food. We had a cocktail hour an 3 course meal and our guests said it was the perfect size portions and everything was hot, flavorful and cooked perfectly. The basic bar package includes mid grade to premium options that most venues charge extra for. We loved the open concept loft style with exposed brick and contemporary Scandinavian design. We were able to pull off a romantic look with a casual fun feeling. I would recommend working with 2nd Floor to anyone who is looking to host a seamless event in a venue you can transform into any vision with staff who want your event to just as perfect as you do.Sent on 18/12/2018

Best. Day. Ever!
We just had our wedding at 2nd Floor Events this past Saturday and it was absolutely amazing! We really couldn’t have done it without the help of our venue coordinator Amanda. She was so friendly and helpful throughout the entire process…on the day of the wedding I didn’t have to worry about a single thing because she had it all taken care of. She is so enthusiastic and you can tell she loves what she does…she also shared my love of organization and lists haha She was prompt with responding to emails and had many great suggestions along the way. On the day of everything was perfect and flowed seamlessly throughout the ceremony, into the cocktail hour, on to dinner and the party after.
Planning was so easy because they have everything there in house…you don’t have to search around for tables, linens, chairs, caterers, or the like.
The venue itself is absolutely stunning, you won’t find anything else like it. Their in-house chef is incredibly talented, I was so excited about the food and he did not disappoint. Our guests were raving all night and even in the days to follow about how amazing the venue and food were. The bar is stocked with a great selection of alcohol, and all of the staff there are so friendly and professional. They think of every little detail right down to the co-ordinated servers (one of our guests called it synchronized serving) where each person at a table is served at exactly the same time…thoughtful and entertaining to watch! I cannot recommend this venue enough…it truly was the best day ever!!

We had our wedding at 2nd Floor Events last November and were so happy with our experience. Amanda and Rachel were amazing and very easy to work with, and made every accommodation to make our vision a reality. Everything from the food/drinks, staff and service was excellent from day 1, to the days after our wedding. We had so many compliments from our guests on the quality of the food and how unique the space was. We are so thankful to the team for such a positive and memorable experience on such a special day in our lives. Thanks again!Sent on 20/05/2020

2nd Floor Event
The space has everything you need. Cool hip vibe. The food is out of this world. Many things to choose from. Now the most important aspect is the event coordinator, she is not just a coordinator she is like a wedding planner. Super organized and accommodating. I have had several opportunities to go to site and they continually support and inspire me. So excited for my wedding in June. They have taken the stress off my shoulders. Thank You Julia, My event coordinator! You are the best :)Sent on 19/03/2019
