    Great vibe and delicious custom vegan menu!

    Second Floor Events is a great place to have your wedding. We fell in love with the place on our initial walkthrough with Rachael, the events director. The space has a beautiful modern rustic vibe with exposed brick and lots of natural light and greenery behind the impressively long bar. Good food was a priority for us and they were able to set up a tasting before we even signed anything. The chef was even able to create a custom vegan menu for us, since we are both vegetarian with many vegan friends. During the tasting, Rachael was so kind and accommodating, and really made it a special evening for us, particularly since at the time we haven’t had many meals out in a while due to COVID. We were even able to meet and talk with the chef about the food in person. With the wedding approaching we were introduced to Cindy, who was our main point of contact and day of coordinator for the venue. She was so enthusiastic and great to work with leading up to and on the day of the wedding, and helped make sure our day went exactly as planned!

    The perfect event space

    Perfect event space for intimate events and gatherings. Service was great and they were very responsive would recommend to everyone. Party guests love the natural lighting and exposed brick.Pictures online don’t do it justice must go see in person.

    Second Floor was the BEST!

    Second Floor was the perfect spot for our wedding. The team is excellent - everyone is so kind, thoughtful and helpful. Rachael and Cindy were there with us every step of the way and helped us make the most out of doing a wedding during a pandemic. The night-of staff were also personable and anticipated our every need. Our guests loved the warmth of the venue and loved the food. If you are looking to have your wedding in downtown Toronto, look no further. You'll have a magical experience at Second Floor.

    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!

    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.

    Amazing Venue!

    Throughout the process of planning our pandemic-wedding, Rachael and Nicole were able to maintain great communication, allowing us to postpone and fully customize our day and menu to accommodate the ever-changing government restrictions. The food offered by the kitchen staff is AMAZING; worthy of satisfying even the most critical foodies in our guest list. Wish we could order takeout from there ;) Really pleasant staff that adhered to COVID regulations, great central location and modern looking space. We had the best day ever and we’re so happy we got to host our wedding here! Thank you Second Floor!

    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!!

    So happy we picked Second Floor Events!

    My husband and I had our wedding at Second Floor Events in February 2022 and had an incredible day. We feel lucky to have picked this venue as they were truly fantastic to work with during especially challenging pandemic times. Rachael and Cindy were wonderful from our booking date right through to the wedding day, and made themselves available as resources to talk through the many, many government restriction changes that occurred during planning.

    We went for an all-inclusive package, and opted to upgrade our bar - there are a few single malt scotch aficionados in our family as well as picky wine drinkers, and everyone was thrilled with the selection. We wanted a few specialty cocktails and they were incredibly accommodating, plus the bartenders were professional, fun and attentive as was the service staff during dinner and cocktails. The staff was also thoughtful enough to put canapés into our bridal suite so that we could have a quiet moment to ourselves, paying special attention to my dietary restrictions to ensure I could fully enjoy them. We were thrilled with the decor add-ons (we customized the light boxes, Edison bulbs and lectern) and everything was gorgeous. Our guests could NOT stop raving about the food.

    Cindy was our venue coordinator and was there on the day of our wedding to help coordinate all details. She was fabulous with all our vendors leading up to the event as well. Our day-of coordinator mentioned how organized and thoughtful she was.

    Thanks so much to the Second Floor team for the best day ever. It could not have been better!

    Amazing experience

    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!
