Last week the Stirling Room in the Distillery District hosted an open house gala event to showcase their cocktails created by The Martini Club and a select few caterers featuring delicious treats such as gazpacho, oysters, fried chicken on waffles and cupcakes. The Star Martini was our favourite cocktail of the night for the right amount of sweetness but some guests preferred the more bitter Blueberry Collins.  Overall it was a fantastic night that met our expectations with entertainment from…

Lou Dawg’s at King West invited the public to celebrate their 3rd year with the help of New Orleans big band Irene Torres and the Sugar Devils.  Appreciative customers were treated to Executive Chef Sean Smith’s famous jambalaya and samples of Fireball whiskey and swag.  Not a bad way to spend a Sunday night!

Greetings were well-received…

About the Fermenting Cellar: The Fermenting Cellar of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery, originally constructed in 1859 on what was then Toronto’s waterfront, has now been transformed into the most unique event platform in the GTA…
