A Wilder Side of Marché
By Karl Petschke, Exclusive to TorontoPATH.com
Anybody who’s familiar with Marché’s Brookfield Place location is no doubt aware that you can hardly step into the sunbathed corporate hub without catching sight of a few execs talking business over brunch, or families taking a much-needed break from their excursions in the city.
However, with the recent unveiling of a newly-completed renovation, the Swiss market restaurant’s popular flagship location is now offering the financial district a glimpse of a different side of its personality – a decidedly wilder side.
Introduced in uncharacteristically raucous fashion, Marché’s new Muv Bar promises to attract the attention of the business crowd and night-life enthusiasts alike.
Taking all the right cues from the district’s top-notch bar scene, Marche’s trendy new bar area is equal parts refined and accessible, and, like so many of its patrons, alternately playful and sophisticated.
Emceeing the launch was none other than Kevin Brauch, a proud Toronto native who is perhaps best known for his work on the Food Network, including his jet-setting exploits as host of The Thirsty Traveller. The event was a huge success, with sharply-dressed patrons flocking from throughout the area to check out the new addition, enjoy the handiwork of local DJ Michael Anthony, and sample a stellar selection of cocktails prepared by award-winning mixologist Nishan Nepulangoda.
With an ideal location at the heart of the city, a fun, fresh vibe, and the ever-popular Marché name behind it, the space promises to be a perfect addition to the local nightlife. Its close proximity to some of the city’s major sports and entertainment hotspots, and monthly events like “Diva’s Night”, together with a tasty and affordable drink menu, make the spot a great match for your evenings in the city. Plus, with its unique illuminated bar, the venue can convert to complement a variety of colour schemes, making it perfect for holiday festivities or branded corporate events. It’s also a great place to meet other professionals who work in the area, or get out for an evening with coworkers, free from the austerity of the office. In short, it makes for both a great place to relax after a long work week, and an ideal venue for a party or event, no matter what kind of night you’re in the mood for.
If the new bar's grand opening was any indication, you can expect to be greeted by a livelier scene than you’re used to the next time you walk through Brookfield Place. Stop by Marché whenever you’re feeling like unwinding after work, and keep your eyes peeled as the weather warms up for the reopening of their popular patio area.
