Aperture Room Offers a Stylish Loft-like Space in Downtown Toronto

Located on the third floor of the historic Thornton-Smith building, Aperture Room can accommodate up to 120 guests for a seated event, or 180 guests for a standing reception. The name is derived from one of the building’s most prominent tenants, The Camera Exchange, which occupied all four floors in 1966. Covered with light-grey Indiana limestone, the renowned heritage property features five two-storey showroom windows topped with stone arches. The building’s striking façade makes it a stunning destination for any social or corporate event.
