A Night To Remember

What a wedding!!!
October 19,2019 will be a day remembered by many.

We couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding and it couldn't have been made possible without the Eglinton Grand venue and staff.
The venue is unique and has a beautiful history. All the details were perfectly place. The atmosphere had a certain je ne sais quoi about it.
However, the extraordinary team of people is what makes the venue what it is. They all have played such monumental part in making our day so very special.
A special Thank you goes to Teresa who was there for us every step of the way supporting and guiding us, giving us genuine advice and help

The food was spectacular, our signature drink Turned out Perfectly! And the service thourought the night was Stellar...such friendly, warm people. We couldn't ask for more.

Thank you Eglinton Grand for making our dreams come true.
PS. We will for sure come back for our vow renewal party!

They Made our Dream Wedding Come to Life

We had our wedding at the beautiful Eglinton Grand on Oct 15 of 2023 and my god was it the best decision we ever made.
Everyone was amazed by the theme and the venue and how different it is from anything they have ever been to.
An now to the most important part which is the people at the venue.
We dealt with Sarah and Paula and we have no words to describe how AMAZING they have been throughout the process.
Not only would they accommodate the panic calls the week of the wedding. But they actually suggest things to make our life easier and our wedding even more magical. You can tell they are passionate about what they do and are genuinely helping out like they are our own wedding planners.
Even Artur the master of the sound and light at the venue was happy to jump on calls with us and accommodate all the ideas we had to make that night perfect. And it was just that.
The night went ahead without hiccups, and even if there were any which i am sure there was, the team there did an amazing job of handling it.
In short, this place is magical and unique and so are the people working there that happily made our dream wedding come to life.
Thank you

Timeless & Unique Venue!!!

My husband and I got married at the Eglinton Grand on 4/29/2023. It was a magical day and everything went perfectly. For starters, we booked this venue 1.5 years in advance, and never had any issues with responsiveness. Especially in the 2 weeks leading up to my wedding, I was in constant contact with the venue.

The venue itself is gorgeous and created for us a very unique wedding day that our guests loved. Our favourite part was being “alone” for our first dance…. So many of our guests told us they cried during our it because of how special of a moment they felt like they were witnessing.

For cocktail hour we had 3 stations and guests commented that there was a ton of food. On top of that a 4 course meal and a late night station, so guests raved about how great the food was and how much of it there was. We were concerned there may not be enough but we were very wrong.

The ceremony space is simple yet pretty, we did not add any personal decor but photos still came out beautiful.

I could go on and on but overall if you’re considering having your wedding here I would recommended it a million times. It is a decision you won’t regret and your wedding photos will be very timeless😊

Great wedding day!

We had our wedding at the Eglinton Grand and were so thrilled with how everything went! The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and the space is well laid out and spacious to accommodate all of the different aspects of a wedding. The sound system there is also great and the room carries sound extremely well, so all of our speeches and the band were easily heard. We worked with Teresa prior to the wedding and we greatly appreciated how responsive and helpful she was in ensuring everything including all of the details were set for the wedding day. The venue was also extremely accommodating with allergies and dietary restrictions. On the day of, Joe and his team went above and beyond to make sure everything went accordingly to plan and the night ran extremely smoothly. Our guests had an absolutely amazing time and were very complimentary regarding the food, how kind the staff was, how amazing the venue was, and what a fun time they had! We would absolutely recommend holding your wedding or any event at the Eglinton Grand!

Welcome To "The Eglinton Way" Holiday Fashion Show Being Held At "The Eglinton Grand" Out In Toronto, Ontario Canada!

It was a very exciting evening and my Very First (1st) Fashion Show that I have ever attended which was being held at "The Eglinton Grand" which used to be a movie theatre which has been turned into an Event Venue for Weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, Conferences, etc.

With ME, we have Terese Hatter from Beauty Tree who was one (1) of the vendors out on Eglinton Avenue West along the LRT (Light Rapid Transit) who was involved in the show and she did all of the makeup for the models and works as a Medical Esthetician in her private practice as well!

Some of the other vendors that were present include:
- Enrico Hair Design
- Secret Service Medical Aesthetics
- Le Reve Skin Clinic

The purpose of the event was to further promote the businesses along Eglinton Avenue West that have suffered so much during the Covid Pandemic Crisis and the LRT (Light Rapid Transit) Construction and Bring Them All Back To Life, plus attract New Businesses to the area as well!

In Fact: My good friend, Guillermo from Guillermo's Creative Hair Studio happens to be one (1) of the business owners from the event's area, but sadly was Not Able To Attend The Event due to work constraints.

I want to personally Thank her for participating in the event and in my video as well!

I want to also personally Thank Stefanie Zuccarini, BIA Manager for inviting me there as well back on Thursday, November 17th, 2022.

Sincerely yours,

Howard Paul Shore

A more exciting venue!

We recently had our wedding reception hosted at The Eglinton Grand and cannot recommend it enough.

The admin staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the booking and planning process. The coordinator made sure everything was on schedule and went smoothly, which is much appreciated. We had added tequila to the bar, and ran out sooner than expected, so we were kindly offered the option to add a couple more.

We had a few early guests who were allowed to wait inside, rather than by the busy street. Then when we arrived, the chef kindly delivered us a personal bottle of champagne and appetizers. We were starving due to a busy day, and this thoughtful gesture blew us away!

The kitchen staff made sure the wine was always topped up, never had to ask. All tables were provided excellent service. Overall the food was phenomenal!!! We got a lot of positive feedback from the guests. Bartenders were friendly and attentive, and all other staff members seemed friendly, even during the pre-wedding setup.

Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they've been to, and that says a lot. Much thanks to the wonderful staff at The Eglinton Grand for making it happen!

Best Wedding Venue!

I had my wedding reception at The Eglinton Grand and I couldn't be happier! The venue is so beautiful, so original, the food is amazing, and all at a great price. The people there are so warm, welcoming and very helpful. I had many questions leading up to the wedding and they answering all my questions while maintaining excellent communication. My point person was Sarah Tang and I am so grateful for all her help! On the day of the wedding, they made sure everything was running smoothly. I am so grateful and I highly recommend this venue to any couple getting married! :)
