THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
Fairmont Royal York, Toronto’s most distinguished hotel, announced the debut of two new food & beverage venues: CLOCKWORK Champagne & Cocktails and signature restaurant, bar and bakery, REIGN. The highly anticipated restaurant decor transformation was revealed on June 11th, the hotel’s 90th anniversary.
With a modern and intimate dining design atmosphere, CLOCKWORK Champagne & Cocktails is the city’s next classic lounge for an elegant champagne and cocktail experience, serving everything from bubbles and a wide array of international wines, to specially crafted cocktails and must-have culinary delights.
CLOCKWORK first greets guests with a statement timepiece in the transformed lobby – a speciality clock tower inspired by the hotel’s anniversary.
The new centrepiece was created by the same manufacturer as the hotel’s iconic spiral staircase version of the clock initially installed in 2002 by US-based, Electric Time Company. The “90th Anniversary Clock” will stand as a testament to those who have worked vigorously in the past to welcome visitors and Torontonians alike to the celebrated hotel.
The two-sided clock tower represents the hotel’s timelessness, with one side showcasing a stunning constellation clock, and the other a classic motif for the next generation of guests to continue the legacy of the phrase synonymous with the property.
At the helm of the new lobby lounge, the hotel has brought on esteemed mixologist, Rus Yessenov, to oversee a fresh vision for cocktails and aperitifs.
Tasked with creating an entirely new spirit and cocktail menu to reflect the character of the venue, Yessenov will take classic cocktail recipes and infuse them with modern flavours. With charm and allure glittering the space, the lounge aims to be a lively, metropolitan social scene.
CLOCKWORK brings vintage glamour and charm to the modern space setting a bold and stylish restaurant decor colour scheme, while the design of the vibrant new lounge takes inspiration from the hotel’s past.
It pays homage to the golden age of railway exploration and was driven by the train and railroads that first brought the city’s busy travellers to the hotel.
New York-based architecture firm, Rockwell Group, brought the design to life, carefully weaving the concept of time and movement, with a constellation clock that rotates within a night sky-inspired glass panel, and extravagant Pullman car style banquettes.
A spacious layout with an exclusive setting, the lounge caters to more intimate groups. With a deep sunset colour palette and locally supplied statement furniture, the lounge sets the tone of sophistication.
