The Ultra Re-invention

The Toronto nightclub tries something new.

Beirut-born Charles Khabouth is not subtle about the newly re-invented ULTRA. The CEO of Toronto-based Ink has done it again with the recently reopened restaurant by day, and nightclub after dark.

The new ULTRA, designed by Toronto’s Munge Leung, has a dark, hellish and somewhat crazed vibe with black and red as the dominant colors, and gigantic images of imposing roosters loom over 400 plus diners or clubbers.  Photographer Stephen Green-Armytage created the threatening bird pictures. Partners Alessandro Munge and Sai Leung were also in charge of the award-winning design of the original ULTRA five years ago.

Khabouth’s Ink is engaged in a range of prominent hospitality venues, including the Pantages Suites Hotel & Spa in Toronto (club) and The Beatles Revolution Lounge in the Mirage in Las Vegas.

A Reason to Party on Thursdays This Season…

Cheval_Thurs

Never a disappointment, schizophrenic Cheval is steadily proving to be a consistent party spot – once you get on the guestlist and arrive early (or at least KNOW somebody at the door)!  Every Thursday will be a different fashion event.  This Thursday, pre-shop at MODA and save $20% off, see their fashion show, and party at Cheval all in one evening.

Very worthwhile; the music is hot, and so are the people.

The 2nd Annual Green Gala: Midnight In The Garden

The Green Gala: Midnight In The Garden

The second annual Green Gala will once again feature 10 of Canada’s top fashion designers each creating 3 outfits made from sustainable fabrics, coming together in a memorable fashion show. Our first Gala was labeled the “Greenest Fashion Event in Canada”, and we will once again be taking great measures to reduce our eco-footprint and lay claim to this title with this year’s theme “Midnight In The Garden”.

From the cosmetics and hair care products used on models, to our printing process, food and beverages, décor elements, lighting and energy source, The Green Gala aims to inspire other event planners to lighten their footprint, while at the same time shining a spotlight on the potential that sustainable fabrics have to make evening wear and couture clothing.

The event will be bolstered by a silent auction, live performance by Tara MacLean, and will also feature media personalities and celebrities modeling the clothing on the catwalk! This year’s event will be hosted by MuchMusic VJ Hannah Simone.

See event highlights for more details.

Presenting Sponsor Samsung, committed to environmentally sustainable business practices, will be accepting old cell phones at the event. Recycling cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions, keeps valuable material out of landfills and incinerators, and conserves natural resources. Be sure to bring your old cell phone in for safe and environmentally friendly disposal.

Guaranteed Seating available (limited tickets) $85 – SOLD OUT
Advance General Admission tickets are $75 – online sales is now closed.
Limited Tickets will be sold at the door for $100.
