The Pickering Room (Board Room)
The Pickering Room is ideal for board, committee or coporate meetings. It also works well as a reception space for smaller groups any time of day, from breakfast to dinner, or just cocktails. This is a versatile space with an adjustable or removable board table, a built-in servery, 80" LCD monitor for presentations and floor to ceiling windows with adjustable blinds. The Pickering Room can also be expanded by opening up interior doors to the adjoining Green Room offering further space and flexibility.
Traditionally the private gathering space for artists and their entourage on performance evenings, this is a warm and intimate space suited for meet-and-greets or smaller cocktail receptions. The room is set with bistro tables and chairs and a portable bar but can be reconfigured to suit your needs. The lighting in this room is subdued and adjustable, creating an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication.

North Court Patio
With it's reflecting pool and garden features, The North Court Patio is an exclusive and versatile outdoor space in the busy downtown core, perfect for a variety of events and activity, both public and private. The Patio surface area was recently expanded over the reflecting pool which allows greater flexibility of use and can accommodate larger groups. A dedicated Patio entrance was also added, accessed from King Street, via David Pecaut Square. During the summer months the Patio is equipped with a 'plug and play' stage including a tent and sound and light system. In case of inclement weather there is a built-in awning system to provide some protection or we can move your event indoors to the Lobby.
The Studio is a multi-use room with simple white décor and is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of backstage, which means privacy. The room is primarily used for auditions, tutored tastings, corporate meetings and luncheons, but is also a blank canvas ready to be transformed.

Created with exclusivity in mine, it was designed to complement the experience of enjoying fine wines and spirits. The room is tucked away behind simple but elegant wall panels, which can open up for additonal capacity and captures the essence of what it means to “see and be seen.”
