About Against the Grain

Located just steps from Toronto’s iconic Sugar Beach in the Corus Entertainment Building is Against the Grain. Wow your guests with picturesque views of Lake Ontario and Centre Island on our sprawling lakeside patio, indulge in enticing handcrafted cocktails and globally inspired dishes and then dance the night away in our beautiful Tavern Bar! They offer brunch, lunch and dinner menu options, so no matter what time of day you’re celebrating your love, Against the Grain has something to offer!

Facilities and Capacity

This venue is located within the Corus Entertainment Building, adjacent to the Redpath Sugar Factory and Sugar Beach. With a versatile main dining space and spacious bar area, Against the Grain can accommodate a variety of setup options, whether you’re looking for a seated dinner space, to mix ‘n’ mingle or both! In the summer months take your celebration out onto the south facing patio and enjoy the scenic views of Lake Ontario.

Against the Grain can accomodate weddings of up to 50 guests for a seated dinner; the ceremony would take place offsite, cocktail reception would be in the Tavern Bar, dinner in the dining room and then dancing and late night back in the Tavern Bar!

Alternatively, the restaurant can accomodate up to 200 guests cocktail-style with a mix of seating and mingling space.
