King Edward’s Crystal Ballroom

Perhaps some of the best news of late concerning restoration and renewal of by-gone era venues, is that of the complete refurbishment of the magnificent Crystal Ballroom in the King Edward Hotel.  This section of the iconic King Eddy was forced to shut down in 1979 as it failed to meet with the city’s building codes at the time.

There has been much anticipation surrounding the unveiling of this beautiful space which may have been lost to us for well over 3 decades, but has returned in all its former glory.  Read the article from the Toronto Star here to find out more.
