If there's one thing that unites us more than anything it's this - Toronto ain't cheap. From $7 lattes to insane rent prices, it's getting harder and harder to find somewhere to go in the city in your budget. And even though we love pretending like standing in that hour long line to drop $20 cover (and then $15 on a single vodka soda) is worth the Insta, we can all agree that your wallet is going to hurt - especially if you're coming from the Toronto city centre, and it's not fun.
You're not going to have an event in your cramped condo, obviously; but what do you expect, that we're going to suddenly just stay home?! In the words of everyone's favorite Clueless diva, Cher Horowitz, "as if." All it takes is a little digging to find the perfect space for your event that won't break the bank, but still has all the amenities and aesthetics of an A-list event space. Luckily, we did the hard part for you and found the perfect space for your next event, meet and greet, dance party, photoshoot, workshop - or whatever else your heart desires.
Where is this magical, aesthetically pleasing, and fun space you ask? Obviously, it's one seriously prime Living Room space in one of Canada's largest enclosed outlet shopping centers, Dixie Outlet Mall, located in Mississauga (which is only 20 minutes from downtown Toronto, btw). Now, Dixie isn't just the place to go for over 120 retailers offering "back off, I found it first" deals anymore - it's also your go-to event space.
Dixie Living Room is a new pop up space that looks anything other than your basic event space; we're talking 3,100 sq. ft. of beautifully decorated, bright, fun space that you can literally use for any kind of event. This is always the part where you look at the price of an amazing space like this and shed a little tear for what could have been, but not this time.
Here's the deal: This superstar space has free WiFi, tables, chairs, moveable wall dividers, a stage, a PA system, a demonstration table and more... and it's all yours to book for $50 per hour. The absolute best part about this deal? The Dixie Living Room is 100% FREE to book and use if you are a registered charity or not for profit organization. Yup, you can pick your jaw up off the ground now.
Bookings in 2017 went fast, so make sure to head over to the Dixie Outlet Mall website ASAP. Submit for approval your fitness class, networking event, awesome party, or basically anything else you can dream up! The Dixie Outlet Mall Living Room holds about 100 people standing or 52 seated, and is open from Monday to Friday, 10 AM - 9 PM; Saturday, 9:30 AM - 6 PM and Sunday, 11 AM - 6 PM. See you there!
