COMMERCIAL BUILDER IN TORONTO

DASHA

KING STREET WEST

Dasha on King West offers a contemporary take on Asian cuisine, and a second floor private Karaoke area. Dasha - play on the Mandarin expression for ‘Big house’ this venue is a two floored project that spares no expense in styling. Designed by SOLID with Honeycomb Hospitality and Helmed by Michelin-star Akira Back, this restaurant is filled top-to-bottom with allisions to a mystic land far, far away. With Orchids, neon lights, the space itself includes elements like a giant bird cage framing the stairs, harkening back to Chinese tea houses in Yore, custom designed lighting, and hand painted art throughout all the spaces.

REYNA ON KING

KING STREET EAST

Owner Nicki Laborie and chef Ariel Coplan brought along the same light, colorful approach to drinks and pan-Euro-Middle-Eastern eats that they road-tested at the original Yorkville location (and at a spinoff inside Assembly Chef's Hall), but added a bakery and cafe counter, as well as a new food menu divided into mains at lunch and bar snacks at night. The original plan was to keep the King location a cafe in order to complement the daytime cooking schedule at the commissary. Now, in addition to an espresso machine, the bar is home to a selection of grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, quiche slices, and house made baked goods.

BARO ROOFTOP

KING STREET WEST

The rooftop patio has been in the works since Baro’s grand opening in 2016 - Its indoor-outdoor experience reminiscent of a warm getaway. The rafters are dotted with plants and the chefs are working the wood burning parrilla. True to the different concepts scattered throughout the three-floor temple of Latin American food, the patio features its own menu that capitalizes on the rooftop grill. With the heated indoor area and retractable roof this patio will be enjoyed all year long, no matter what weather comes along.

STORM CROW MANOR

THE VILLAGE

The hotly-anticipated home of the “Nerdiest Bar in Canada” opened in October 2018 in a heritage Victorian mansion in the heart of the city’s Church-Wellesley Village. This Vancouver bar concept offers wildly themed rooms marrying sci-fi, fantasy, and a healthy dose of magic. The 15-month renovation required the grand home to be fully gutted, leveled and restored before Solid Design/Build’s meticulously-designed rooms could be installed. Executed with incredible attention to detail, the result is 5,000 square feet of geek heaven.

LAISSEZ FAIRE

KING WEST

A sophisticated new sibling to its downstairs counterpart Locals Only, Laissez Faire serves French-influenced plates and classic cocktails against a modern rustic backdrop. Designed by co-owner Jonathan Condren, the vintage-inspired aesthetic is restrained yet beautiful, with an open kitchen, intimate chef’s table, and plenty of Instagram-worthy moments.

BARO

KING STREET WEST

Designed by Solid Design/Build and headed by Chef Steven Gonzalez, Baro focuses on Latin-style dining, bringing South America’s dynamic food culture to Toronto. Mixing cocktails with industrial décor, warm wood tones, and copper details, this four-storey dining establishment features multiple bars, a special event space, and a lounge accessed by secret password.

BAR REYNA

YORKVILLE

This two-storey Victorian house was converted to Bar Reyna, a cocktail and snack bar with a year-round back patio for live entertainment. Jewel tones, leather banquettes, special weathered finishes and gold accent details warm the space, while custom-built bars on each floor set the stage for energetic gatherings.

EL PATIO

KING WEST

This outdoor patio bar is a hidden oasis tucked behind King West’s El Caballito Mexican restaurant. INTOR built custom cedar and steel booths and high-top tables, and completely retrofitted a shipping container with a fully-functional bar. Designed by Solid Design/Build, El Patio beckons tequila and taco lovers alike to the inviting backyard atmosphere.
