This Thursday night, The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen St. W.) will be dressed to the nines in a building- wide bash to celebrate its 9th birthday. And yes, there will be cake.

Beginning at 9 pm, guests will be treated to a night of dancing, cocktail sampling, live music, and a chance to win a party upgrade complete with Absolute Elyx bottle service. (This already sounds 1000x better than any birthday party we’ve thrown.) Canadian musicians Rich Aucoin and River Tiber will perform in the Lounge while Jane’s Party hosts their album release party in the Underground alongside Sandman Viper Command and Michael Rault. Afterwards, DJ Fase will have you dancing late into the night.

To ball gowns or birthday suits required and each guest will receive a complimentary birthday cupcake from the Drake kitchen! For reservations, call (416) 532-5042 ext. 1 or email $9 at the door.
