SoHo House Toronto

Where celebs go to unwind (and get drunk) during TIFF

The madness that is the TIFF party season has arrived and while there are plenty of places around town catering to the general public, private member club Soho House has one again partnered with Grey Goose to host invite only affairs.

On Thursday night they kicked things off with cocktails to celebrate the premiere of TIFF opening gala The Fifth Estate. Guests included man of the moment Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Hanks, and Michael Fassbender (who shared a bizarre boogie to R Kelly's 'Ignition'), whilst ubiquitous Canadian everyman Strombo made the rounds, and British darling Juno Temple helped swill some of the free grog on offer.

Cocktails were typically plentiful, with a small selection of vodka creations bussed around the room to ensure no-one left without a healthy buzz on. Canapes were dished out all night to soak up the booze, with tiny bowls of risotto accompanying skewers of tofu and other treats.

In truth, it was a pretty relaxed affair for a TIFF party, with Soho House's upscale lounge atmosphere protected by plenty of velvet rope and security.

You can score an invite for next year's bashes at SoHo House by starring in a major motion picture.
