Event planners across the city were giddy to check out Toronto’s newest coffee-house-turned-event-space, Propeller Coffee Co.. With its high ceilings, massive west-facing windows, exposed white brick and wood columns, Propeller offers 2,600 sqft of event space that is just brimming with all the charms you’d expect from the Bloordale/Junction Triangle neighborhood.

Hosted and coordinated by the good folks at The Food Dudes, the evening encompassed all the elements of an uber successful venue launch: piles of catering from the aforementioned as well as Beretta Kitchen, Victor Dries Curated Events, and Parts and Labour Catering & Events; rentals by Higgins Event Rentals; decor by Marla Brown Designs; and dessert by Glory Hole Donuts.  The flow of the evening was perfect and guests were buzzing with excitement – certainly, this was not an event to be missed!

Events Director and designer of the Propeller space, Kristi Tethong tells us: “We have tried to respect the industrial feel of the old Rolled Metal Products Factory the space once was. At the same time, the polished concrete floors and white exposed brick bring an elegance worthy of the weddings, dinner clubs, private parties and arts events we host.”  The space was built to be as eco-friendly and accessible as possible. As such, the event space is bullfrog powered and fully wheelchair accessible.

A big thanks to Ted Chai Photography for capturing the evening!

With food stations and passed hors d’oeuvres aplenty, there was certainly no shortage of mouth watering items to sample. Preserving our journalistic integrity, we felt it only fitting to try one (or two) of everything.

Oh we’re not done yet! A tequila bar, Amsterdam Beer, and various wines are always a welcomed addition to any party. Did we mention there was more food?
