The Addisons Residence Hosts Toronto’s Coolest House Party

COMFORTABLE YET EMINENTLY COOL, THE ADDISONS RESIDENCE IS A WELCOME ADDITION TO TORONTO’S NIGHTLIFE SCENE

Addisons Residence Toronto Nightlife

Blink and you might very well miss the city’s newest hangout. An unmarked bungalow—with a black door and a doormat that declares “The neighbors have better stuff”—is where you’ll find The Addisons Residence. Channeling the vibe of a cozy yet sophisticated Beverly Hills home, the former C Lounge space has been stylishly transformed into the abode of a fictitious preppy family, complete with vacation photos, potted plants, and shelves lined with books and board games. Three rooms each come with their own bar and atmosphere, but also allow party goers to move seamlessly from one space to another. The heart of any house party is the kitchen, and here countertops serve as tables for congregating with drinks that incorporate the likes of cereal, milk and jello. Later, take a seat on the chairs and benches scattered around the living room, which boasts a cocktail cart where beverages can be mixed upon request; it’s also where live shows take place. The more casual rec room has a foosball table, shuffleboard and air hockey, as well as several TV screens for catching sporting events, making it the ideal place to nosh on game-day staples like beer, nachos and wings.  —Linda Luong
