With the Toronto International Film Festival on the horizon, the city can expect its share of A-list celebrities and splashy soirées.
From restaurants to clubs and, of course, the city's top hotels, Hollywood's finest will be weaving in and out of closed-door parties and events to promote their latest films - and one such venue is Toronto's Trump International Hotel, opened in 2012.
During Trump's first TIFF, Perks of Being a Wallflower star Ezra Miller stayed in a Trump suite and reportedly conducted his press interviews from under the covers (how's that for a ringing endorsement?). That same year, Emma Watson, Johnny Depp, Dustin Hoffman and Spike Lee toured the hotel's halls - and bars.
Toronto nightlife kingpin Charles Khabouth is launchinga brand new supper club, America, to replace Trump's Stock at the end of August. According to a report from the Toronto Star, the renovations include a $100,000 bill for fabric alone. To welcome what's sure to be one of the city's hottest new spaces, America will play host to a number of A-list parties. What's more, even Trump's downstairs bar Suits is getting an update and will re-emerge as The Calvin, so there's certainly a lot of new environments for A-listers to explore.
There's expected to be upwards of six additional pre- and post-premiere fetes with a large roster of names in attendance, but those are a secret – for now.
