The ORIGINAL, often imitated 'Midcentury Loft' space in Old Town Toronto.
Cozy for up to 4 people, with a private mini jungle! Perfect for the plant-obsessed, our space is also filled with vintage and midcentury teak furniture. Our fluffball Neko lives with us here.

Guests with no reviews or poor reviews are not welcome. We have rules surrounding events and additional guests. We've hosted dozens of groups; available at a separate listing. Contact for commercial photo/video rates.

The space
Close to everything and has the Queen streetcar line, which you can use to get to the coolest spots in downtown TO. This is a very hip multi-use space, and we've hosted weddings, bridal showers, music videos, short films, screening parties, casting calls, and chic catered dinner parties.

This listing is strictly for quiet groups of 4 and less, with no additional guests. You will have the space to yourselves, and we do so expecting respect to our rules and our neighbours especially in regards to QUIET after 11PM.
We have to be very strict on this and failure to cooperate will result in losing your deposit and us returning to our loft if our neighbours notify us of any noise concerns.

*NOTE:* We have a ring doorbell on the front door which will capture entrance and exit of you and your guests. Obscuring the camera or messing with the wifi connection will result in your forfeiting your night.

This space is best enjoyed by those looking to hang and have fun. If you are coming back after partying in the early am, please be respectful of noise coming in, as this is a true loft building and the walls are thin.

Please message for rates for video and photo usage, whether it is a commercial or creative shoot, and the number of crew present.

Guest access
Have no fear, we're always a short call away; depending on your arrival time, we may do a lockbox or be here to help you check in and get comfy.
We're super connected through wi-fi, pop online to get some work done and then feel free to watch Netflix, or play music using our Chromecast during downtime.

Please be respectful at all times of noise levels as we do have neighbours and appreciate your cooperation. NOTE: DJs are not permitted to bring speakers and equipment.

We have an espresso machine with beans from local roasters, always happy to help wake everyone up in the AM :)

Other things to note
Our lovely cat, Neko, is super friendly and we appreciate you taking care of her for the evening :) Generally she will have been fed and have extra food and water throughout the day. She loves attention and people in general, don't be afraid to give her a rub when she's around.
No smoking in the loft, if we can smell cigarettes, this will be reflected by an additional charge. No smoking or drinking in the halls, landings, or outside the main entrance of the building. No DJs are allowed in the space. Ever.
