Inspired by the Art Deco style, the Roosevelt Room is a new supper club in the entertainment district directly behind the Toronto International Film Festival Tower.
Modelled on Hollywood’s legendary Roosevelt Hotel, which hosted the first Academy Awards, the decor was developed by the Design Agency. Jeff O’Brien, of One Development Corp., developed the venue’s concept.
The venue, which seats 120 and holds 500 for events and receptions, is decorated in a palette of gold, brown, and black. A white diamond granite counter tops the main bar (one of three), which is fronted with intricate metal panels and has griffin details on the brass foot rails.
The centre of the restaurant functions as the main dining room and becomes the dance floor later in the evening. Metallic sheers line the perimeter of the area and enable smaller, semi-private events to be held.
