FACILITY DETAILS

The capacity of the building per fire code is 50 people maximum.

The interior of the Studio features a soaring vaulted ceiling complete with large skylights, inviting wood panelled walls, hardwood flooring, a decorative floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace with a mantle, and a large bay window with a view of Lake Ontario.

Food and drink are welcome in the Studio. However, you and your guests may not take and consume your food or beverages outdoors into Gairloch Gardens.
