Part of rural Toronto when it was built in 1875, the Heliconian Hall is situated between contemporary galleries in today’s Yorkville. Original elements of the Carpenter’s Gothic board-and-batten church have been restored to their former glory; a Victorian rose window above the entrance presides over a majestic oak and brick wood-burning fireplace; the air-conditioned hall with vaulted ceiling and wooden rafters provides stellar acoustics, making the club popular for musical and dramatic presentations. An adjacent suite has a modest finishing kitchen, and a small reception space with a pull-out bar .
