GLADTSONE HOUSE - ALWAYS WELCOME
As Toronto’s longest continuously operating hotel and following an extensive renovation, Gladstone House reopened its doors in 2021 in the heart of West Queen West. Built in 1889 and steeped in history, this landmark property features traditional light hardwood floors, restored exposed brick walls and locally curated art throughout the building. In contrast, unique and innovative lighting applications which transition throughout the day, add a touch of modern flare and bring the building to life. Celebrate your wedding with us.
Facilities and Capacity
Gladstone House features two unique multi-functional event spaces: The Ballroom and Melody Bar. Celebrate, dance, dine, and more in these event spaces to make your event a one-of-a-kind experience.

Thank you SO much! The party was amazing. We loved every single moment. Thank you for all of your help with this, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue.
Hi Peter and Daniel, A massive thank you to you and all of your staff for Friday night’s event! Everyone had a blast, food was delicious, the room was fantastic and the funky drinks were a hit. Your staff is amazing and I cannot say enough great things about you all! Had many emails today from people telling me it was a fantastic event, one of our most fun yet – thanks for making me look so good!!!! Please say a special thank you to Dario (sp?) & Kyra for putting the table settings together as I threw everything at them in my panic state when the boxes were late arriving - you all made it go super smoothly. I wish more people had stayed over, but the six of us that did had a blast (at least, I’m pretty sure we did? hmmm….). I will def do the online survey shortly, but wanted to express my thanks directly to you again for a wonderful time . Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah & Happy Holidays to you all, Helen Administrative Assistant Morgan Meighen & Associates
Thank you so much for a very successful Office Holiday Party! Huge thanks to you Daniel (and your staff) for accommodating all the last minute changes with such kindness and ease. My guests really enjoyed the trendy venue and delicious food. Hats off to all your staff, throughout the entire evening I found them extremely professional and thoughtful.
We held our holiday party for over 300 folks last year. The Gladstone was the perfect venue for a fun night filled with good eats, karaoke and pop-up activations.
I held a day-long training event for a small group at the Gladstone this month. Working with Abbey to coordinate this event was a pleasure, and went very smoothly. She was responsive to our needs, flexible, and efficient. The day of the event, everything went smoothly, and the staff member assigned to our group took great care of us! The food was tasty and the portion sizes were good. The room where we held the event was bright with big windows and high ceilings. We had a great experience holding an event here. Thanks to the Gladstone team!

The Gladstone is such a beautiful Queen West venue and the team is great to work with. A/V team in particular was super helpful to us in coordinating logistics, and making sure we had what we needed throughout the day!

It's always a pleasure when we get to shoot at the Gladstone. It's been a longtime favourite venue. It adds so much character to every part of the day and it's really such an intimate, romantic space.
