Make a Night of It!

One the perks of site-specific performance is spending time in one of Toronto's hottest culture and hospitality venues.

The Gladstone boasts 37 artist-designed hotel rooms and fantastic bars and restaurants. A Synonym for Love ticket buyers can enjoy the best of what the hotel has to offer with pre-fixe dinner packages and room-booking discounts throughout the run of the show.

Pre-order a pre-fixe meal for before or after the performance, and book a room for only $169+tax. Visit the Tickets page of this blog for more details, or go to and book now!
