EPOCH Bar & Kitchen Terrace, The Ritz-Carlton Toronto

The Ritz-Carlton Toronto’s Epoch Bar & Kitchen Terrace offers a secret garden oasis at the nexus of the dynamic financial and entertainment district tucked away on the lobby level of the luxurious hotel. Our design team drew on the romance of travel and the area’s glamorous role as host of the annual Toronto International Film Festival to create the restaurant’s scenic interiors and lush outdoor terrace, including an open-air kitchen and bar that faces Simcoe Park.

“Epoch is a venue for the ages,” says Allen Chan, founding partner of DesignAgency. “The Ritz-Carlton is the gold standard for luxury and service around the world, and Epoch brings those values to an engaging social space that’s intimate, elegant and relaxed.” The restaurant builds on the firm’s ongoing enhancement of The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, which has already unveiled reimagined guest rooms and Club Level suites, as well as fresh looks for the Club Lounge and Spa My Blend by Clarins.
