A New Supper Club Unlike Any Other - The Roosevelt Room

Ever wondered what it would be like to walk down the red carpet at the Academy Awards? Let's bring it back to the roaring twenties with flappers and cabaret, art deco and silent films. That was precisely the experience at The Roosevelt Room's opening earlier this week.

The Roosevelt Room - Toronto's newest supper club is inspired by the 1929 Academy Awards with the the excitement and liveliness of the roaring twenties.

The night began like any other. But as you stepped out of your vehicle you are bombarded by faux paparazzi's ferociously snapping photos. You stop and pose in front of a backdrop of the film Sunrise from 1927. As you walk into the venue, you realize that you are no longer in the new millennium. You may as well be going to see the film, The Great Gatsby - you're in the 1920's. 

With bartenders dressed as flapper girls, a funky DJ playing a fusion of house and classic jazz, a silent film in the washroom stalls (on a 2 way mirror!), energetic cabaret dancers, phenomenal food and an art deco interior. The opening was a success!

There are few venues in Toronto that are themed yet unpretentious. This is one of those venues. Their grand opening is on November 7th. If you want a good night with good food and the 1920's feel, The Roosevelt Room is the place for you. Even if it isn't the place for you, it's definitely still worth checking out.
