In celebration of their 1 year anniversary, Rily Kitchen invited planners and other VIPs down for an intimate industry celebration. Located in the Junction Triangle, this newly, purpose-built open-concept event space is just minutes away from the subway and GO-Train station. At 2,300 sqft and two floors of event space, I love the industrial-chic look of the space with its high ceilings and plenty of natural light. The space is perfect for intimate gatherings, food-related product launches and pop-ups, and meetings. A big thanks to Rudo at Toronto Wedding Studios for all the photo coverage.

The main floor level, which is typically set up as a conference area, is perfect for small meetings as well as intimate cocktail parties and socials. With its movable furniture and open concept design, the room is versatile enough to accommodate different set-ups and can even be used for a small wedding reception for up to 40 seated.

The second floor kitchen studio is where all the magic happens! This 1,150 open-concept kitchen studio just screams versatility and comes fully equipped with state-of-the-art kitchen appliances, plenty of counter space, and private washroom. With south, west, and east facing windows, the room brings in plenty of natural light.

As guests arrive, catering teams from the Food Dudes and ProvisionsTO sprang into action greeting guests with delicious hors d’oeuvres and refreshing libations.

As guests mingled and munched the evening away, the charm and warmth of the space really shined through. This space is just so conducive for intimate events, you couldn’t help but to stick around and chat amongst guests – a true testament to a well executed event. I certainly look forward to hosting some future clients here.
