Do you need to bring your team together, get them excited and produce results? The Berkeley Innovation Centre is ideal for brainstorming meetings, product strategy sessions, team building activities, and memorable training sessions. Your next bright ideas will come to light in our cutting-edge setting. The BIC offers a design-savvy approach to innovation, featured in a historic mansion. Truly a unique space for corporate events in Toronto.
Thanks to the historic architecture, bold artwork, classic LED lighting and technological capabilities, The BIC is not your typical stuffy boardroom. Instead, it’s an aesthetically inviting meeting place with three different sized rooms. Our spaces are so tastefully decorated, inspirational and inviting that our guests tend to build relationships and capture the moment by taking photos for social media.
The largest meeting space, the ‘1871 Wine Room’ can accommodate up to 60 people theatre style or up to 30 people for traditional meetings. The room is beautifully decorated with modern furniture, artwork and lighting, matched with top-of-the-line technology to suit your business needs.
The Apple Room is BIC’s next largest meeting space. A Juliette balcony and a seated lounge area accompany this great meeting space.
Our smallest room is the Chanel Room, and it’s a charming workspace that’s conducive to small group collaboration.
Where Technology Meets History
The Berkeley Bicycle Club mansion, was once the home of the famous Toronto family, the Gooderham’s. The mansion is unique because it blends 21st-century features with 19th-century warmth and hospitality.
BIC located on the 2nd floor at 504 Jarvis Street is equipped with a dedicated state-of-the-art fibre connection (speeds of 260-Mbps), built behind a Meraki firewall. Each suite has its own SSID with dedicated ports and high-quality LG monitors with AppleTV. An iMac station and a Minolta high-speed printer are available for guests who book meeting spaces.
Broad hallways enable easy people flow once your guests have entered the innovation space via the stained glass appointed staircase.
