According to the Toronto Star, “Great food, great jazz and incredible atmosphere!! Great place to spend time your significant other.” While Tripadvisor.com said, “…one of the finest overall dining experiences I’ve ever had. I tip my hat to you, Boiler room restaurant House!”
The Boiler House is located inside Toronto's Historic Distillery District at 18 Tank House Lane, about 150 feet from the movie-famous iron gates. Its location was one of the reasons why I love this place.
I started this review with in a very confident way as the Toronto and Tripadvisor.com were also very confident in saying that the place is really great. I have a lot to say about The Boiler House and most of them are in their favor. At first it wasn’t exactly the best dining I prefer but maybe subconsciously I fell in love with the place when I started going there frequently, I schedule meetings there more often and dine there for no reason at all. Not only me but this place is actually the number one stop, a meeting, dining, and party destination.
I just love the feel and the vibe of the place, the atmosphere was very welcoming. There are a lot of things going on in this place but it was never tiring in the eyes. There is this towering 22-foot wine rack, the jazz trio perched overhead, or the sultry projected image of a woman seemingly emerging from the century old-brick walls.
I especially like the way the place was constructed, the raw wooden beams and planks reclaimed from the original Gooderham and Worts Distillery predominate - from the floors and booths to the massive bar and 25-foot ceilings. You can really feel its 100 years of existence.
Yes, this place has been existing for 100 years; according to their official website, The Boiler House was the main source of energy for The Distillery. The coal-fired boilers are now long gone but the energy remains the same. This is where the Distillery's heart beats.
The site also says, Two "Gotham City" style, heritage alcohol pasteurizing tanks perch up high, are left over from the Distillery's days as Ontario's largest sprits exporter. Today they're beautiful pieces of art and help set the tone of "cool industrial chic".
Another thing I like about this fine-dinning place is because they leave you with many choices. You can choose an upstairs perch overlooking the popular bar, a table or booth on the lower level, or one of the "snog booths", a pedestal-style enclosure that frames a romantic dinner for two. This is a very romantic and intimate place for lovers and a perfect quiet place for meetings and businesses.
