Since you probably don’t have an invite, here’s a tour inside the Grey Goose Soho House
The Grey Goose Soho House pop-up just around the corner from the TIFF Bell Lightbox has become a magnet for stars at this year’s TIFF (it hosted the after-party for A Dangerous Method, by far this year’s biggest, among many others). Although scoring an invite can be tough going, we got an exclusive look at the venue and the food the stars are munching on.
The Soho House Group—which owns a set of hotel, club, restaurant and spa properties around the world—partners each year with Grey Goose to set up Grey Goose Soho Houses at TIFF, Cannes and Sundance. At TIFF 2011, guests were served small bites like beef tartare with black truffle, artichoke and mozzarella bruschetta, truffle mushroom agnolotti, salt-encrusted salmon and grilled rib-eye. Grey Goose cocktails naturally dominate the drinks list, with cocktails created for the festival by Dimitri Lezinska, Grey Goose brand ambassador and host of the Discovery Channel’s Cocktail Kings. All of which fuels late-night antics like Mark Wahlberg climbing behind the bar to make cocktails for his friends, or Jessica Biel playing ping pong up on the third floor at 3 a.m.
