The view from the Henley Room is what sold us. It is an incredibly versatile space that was perfect for our event. The event manager Robin was extremely helpful and accommodating. When we had family from out of town to see the space for the 2nd time months before our planned event she had no problem letting us slip in to show them. We had booked out event in 2020 at this stunning space back in 2019 and unfortunately our event was disrupted by the pandemic. The Henley Room was truly amazing to work with pre-pandemic and during. Sadly we cannot re-schedule this particular event but The Henley Room was willing to work with us whatever we decided to do. I cannot recommend this space and the people involved more highly.
I've attended a few events at Argonaut Rowing Club since I moved to Toronto five years ago. The venue is gorgeous, especially since the recent renovation! The Henley Room is a great blend of modern and historic with a large original fireplace and beautiful bar area, but modern lighting and fixtures!
Our wedding was the first weekend in June 2019 and it was amazing! They had just renovated the Henley Room and it was so simple and classy. We put up our own decorations the night before and then the staff and Robin helped prepare everything else the morning of (ie. Flowers and set up). Robin was great in helping us get organized, and everything went seamlessly on our wedding day. Plus they have great vendor contacts. We were initially going to get married on their new dock but unfortunately the water levels were just too high. Indoor ceremony was still great since one of the walls is all windows, good lighting. If youre looking for a place by the lake this is the place to be! We had 110 guests and it was perfect. We wanted our wedding to feel relaxed, but also bring in some city vibes. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!!
Our wedding at the Henley Room (ARC) was just beautiful! We were drawn to the area as I'm from the west end and it's a character building on a stunning waterfront location. We appreciated being able to do the ceremony/ cocktails/ reception all at the same venue, with free parking.The ARC did renovations between signing our contract and our actual wedding date. It was stressful but the finished product is lovely, they kept the floor to ceiling windows, which are unbeatable. Robin was great to work with from start to finish. Communication was clear and prompt. Her team pulled everything together beautifully, and the existing relationships with Blair's Catering and Chairman Mills are a huge bonus. There were some elements our of her control but Robin and the team handled everything professionally and seamlessly to make our day wonderful.
Working with Robin and The Henley Room was an absolute pleasure. We wanted a relaxed planning process and day for our wedding, and that's exactly what we got. Working with a preferred vendor made the day run so smoothly and we had the best day! The views off the balcony were amazing and all our guests couldn't stop taking pictures! Thanks to the entire team! Photo by Jessilynn Wong Photography.
