Located minutes away from the Financial District in Toronto, Ontario, the Fermenting Cellar is a unique formal event venue that dates back to 1859. Boasting a rich history, the venue is located within a small village that is known as the Distillery Restaurants Corp. and sits among other unique venues. The Fermenting Cellar is an industrial-chic setting that can be transformed into whatever look a couple envisions for their special day. Heavy timber beams, trusses, and original Kingston limestone walls make this space a fun and striking alternative to the traditional wedding venue.
