Freehouse Collective – the minds behind the city’s beloved Belfast Love, Walrus Pub and Gift Shop, have officially opened the doors to their latest concept – Isabelle’s, a cocktail club and lounge located on the iconic King West strip.
The King West haunt is the sister location to the popular Isabelle’s in Vancouver’s Yaletown, which opened in March.
Isabelle’s boasts an exciting and unapologetically strong cocktail program (Cinnamon Toast Crunch Espresso martinis, anyone?), elevated table service and curated music, complemented by an art-driven, bright yet edgy design reminiscent of an open-style loft found in Brooklyn by way of London.
The functional yet sexy space welcomed an eager post-COVID crowd on opening weekend which saw hundreds of Toronto’s nightcrawlers close out the space each night the only way you’d expect on Toronto’s busiest late-night strip.
The cocktail club and lounge will ‘put lips and feet to work’ early on Thursdays with DJ Intrinity, followed by Fridays and Saturdays with Cale Granton and Lincoln Baio, respectively. Style code in effect.
Isabelle’s is available for private groups and corporate events from Sunday through Wednesday, offering an upscale catering menu including tastefully-crafted stations, boards and platters, and artisanal desserts.
Come for the cocktails, stay for the party – and make sure to wear your dancing shoes. Isabelle’s is located on the second floor of 548 King St. West and is open from 9pm until late Thursday-Saturday.
