This December, one of Toronto’s top recruiting firms tasked us with creating and delivering an engaging holiday party, memorable enough to rival their wild events of the past. The vision from the client was of a cool supper club atmosphere at Storys Building. Once we settled on a Copacabana theme, ideas for how to make it come alive began to flow.

Upon walking into the party, guests were greeted by our Red Carpet Experience; a highly experienced portrait photographer taking guest pictures against a custom backdrop featuring their company logo. There was also an immersive Marquee selfie station in the adjacent corner with hanging custom signs, making for a secondary unique spot.

Throughout the cocktail and dinner portions, different musicians rotated on stage along with the DJ to create a supper club atmosphere. The 3 performers (electric violin, saxophone and singer) would eventually collaborate after dinner on a joint organic and unrehearsed performance along with the DJ.

To kick off the dancing portion of the evening, an authentic Brazilian Maracatu band got the place rocking. They stormed in unannounced, and immediately the phones of guests came out to capture the moment. The vibe completely changed from that moment onwards: it was officially party time.

From there, Earl, our resident Storys Building DJ, took things to that next level with a club-inspired, high-energy dance party set that had them with their hands in the air until the lights came on.
