Toronto is buzzing with celebs and TIFF fever. It’s THE cultural event of the year and it’s literally in our back yard. Whether you’re an avid filmgoer or not, it’s the perfect excuse to get dressed up and take in some of Toronto’s finest spots (and hopefully spot Liam or Jake or Johnny). Check out Emily’s top places to spot celebs and enjoy our awesome city:
Hands down the nicest hotel in the city and conveniently located near TIFF headquarters – I suspect a number of stars will post up at the Shangri-la. Try dining at Momofouko’s Daisho and working your magic in the lobby bar (have you been? It’s gorgeous). Even if you don’t see an A-lister, you’ll have the most magical evening.
The Four Seasons:
The new FS is quite spectacular and situated in Yorkville, it’s most certain you’ll spot some Hollywood types. Stop by D-Bar for a handsome martini and cruise on over to Buca Yorkville.
Even if they aren’t staying at the hotel, I imagine celebs will attend various parties and events at this King West institute. Try grabbing breakfast at Colette - it’s a must on everyone’s radar.
Known to throw fabulous parties, this member’s only club will be buzzing all festival. Start BFF-ing any friends now with memberships – it’s guaranteed to be a party.
For some late-night action, check out Bar Fancy on Queen West. Already quite a scene – this spot will be rammed with only the coolest of Toronto’s centers.
