On its own, or in conjunction with Arcadian Loft, Arcadian Court provides a customizable space like no other in the city of Toronto.
Originally opened in 1929, the Arcadian Court has a deep and rich history as a Toronto institution. It has hosted many monumental events including Toronto’s first auto show; the Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s first radio broadcasts; performances by entertainment legends such as Liberace; and Sotheby’s first auction outside of Britain, to name just a few.
The renovations carried out by architecture firm DeSignum Design have stripped back layers of walls and flooring that have been added over the years, reclaiming approximately five feet around the perimeter, and opened up eight of the 16 grand arches in the mezzanine that were closed off in past renovations and restored the squared off arches along with adding four feet to the remaining eight.
The Court is now a revitalized 8086 square foot gem, featuring improved acoustics, beautiful chandeliers that are a deconstructed take on the original Lalique crystal chandeliers and an opened-up mezzanine spans offering a 360° view.
Arcadian Loft now occupies the space formally known as the City View Café or Panoramic Room. The 6773 square foot venue can be booked as a whole or can be divided to up to five rooms to fit specific event needs. Each room features state-of-the-art technology including drop down screens, AV amenities and integrated sound dampening/absorbing materials. The ‘loft-like’ décor features include open concrete ceilings, a reclaimed grey washed brick accent wall, oversized metal warehouse doors and its most stunning feature -- spectacular views of Old and New City Hall through a 200 lineal foot glass wall.
