Host Your Friends & Family in our Party Room

gal-partyroom

Everyone’s favourite condo amenity is always the party room! It’s convenient to have access to a party room in your condo for a number of reasons, primarily because it provides you with an event space at the drop of a hat, can accommodate way more people than your condo can, and keeps the mess out of your own space.

That being said, the party room in our building is not only convenient for those reasons but is super stylish, well designed, and will have your friends and family wishing they lived at 158 Front too.

The party room is equipped with a fridge and freezer where you can store food and drinks for your party, an oven, sink, and lots of counter space for prep. The extra long island leaves room for your guests to sit, but there is also a large dining table in the kitchen area if you’re hosting a full meal. Before or after dinner, you and your guests can hang out in the party room seating area which is well-equipped with comfortable couches and seating. There’s even a fireplace to make it feel extra cozy.

The party room is available for all of our owners to use, but if you’re planning a party around a holiday be sure to check if it’s available and book early!
