The location of the venue was simply a magical musical match. Built in 1871, The Berkeley Church, hall was transformed into Toronto’s most original event venue. The age and preservation of this masterpiece building of originality, added character to this one of a kid event. Just visiting this historical building of ambiance and modern décor, gave me goosebumps and anticipation with its 17-foot stained glass windows, hard wood floors and Victorian Inspired bar with the magnificent stage and domed ceiling. You just knew that this was a special place which added to the rich sounds throughout the hall, hard to believe that a senior building still standing in magnificent stature could propel such deep rich musical sounds. The Berkeley Church a stunning escape from the ordinary and is a landmark historic building that includes 4 versatile spaces: visit today and check out the Grand Ballroom, The Mezzanine, The Wine Cellar, and Circa 1871 Lounge.
