Remember the name Casey MQ, because you’ll be hearing more and more about this rising star on Canada’s music scene. The singer-songwriter was hand-picked for the Red Bull Music Academy Montreal in 2016 and is set to explode with his latest efforts gaining praise from critics and fans alike.

Casey transformed our Conversation Room into an intimate performance space with a live rendition of his haunting ballad “Hysteria”, which was filmed for a special Red Bull Music Academy video piece. Watch the results for yourself, and remember we told you first!


On April 7th, The Great Hall was proud to play host to the Pink Pearl Foundation’s 11th Annual Black & White With A Touch Of Pink event, raising awareness and funds for young women facing cancer.

Attendees came together in our beautifully decorated Conversation Room to hear inspiring stories of the many women the Pink Pearl Foundation supports in their battles with cancer.

Everyone in attendance was also treated Live Clean swag bags and live entertainment with the sounds from The Doubts & DJ Pierre. A sumptuous spread of edible delights was to be had at the dessert & bar and food stations from Barque Smokehouse, Miku Toronto, Loaded Pierogi, and Gangster Cheese!

In all it was a day for community, hope, and courage as guests connected, shared their experiences. We can’t thank the Pink Pearl Foundation enough for teaming with us in the important work they do every day.

Adidas x Tango League


Toronto’s street style soccer fanatics made Longboat Hall their playground as Adidas presented a dazzling display of the beautiful game with their Tango League tournament.

The fast-paced, high energy competition coincided with the launch of Adidas’ latest version of their innovative NEMEZIZ soccer shoe. The underground 2-on-2 tournament was played on a custom made turf mini field caged in by wire fence for a distinctly urban feel. Spectators jamming the field level and 360 balcony above were treated to stunning skill and goals galore.

Adidas brought along eSports host Chuboi and several of Toronto FC’s hometown heroes to set the scene and mix with fans and players alike. And after all the blood, sweat, and tears the newest footie champions were showered with cheers and confetti as they lifted their hard-earned trophy. Congratulations!
