Located in the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district, Weslodge offers a unique dining experience inspired by the spirit of a traditional Western saloon. Studio Munge’s design concept injects a sense of “polished grit” by taking elements of a cozy, smoky tavern and incorporating luxurious finishes and authentic accessories. Featuring a collection of vintage photographs, hunting relics, classic spindle chairs and traditional saloon cabinetry, the energy within Weslodge is warm and inviting with a distinct edge. Striking high-gloss yellow exterior doors welcome guests inside the space, highlighted with rich wood, luxurious leather, gloss-black millwork and bespoke light fixtures. In a highly customized FF&E program, Studio Munge designed each piece of furniture, including all light fixtures, classic spindle dining chairs and the main 1930s style bar, the centerpiece of the restaurant.
"The yellow doors pretty much grab you by the scruff of the neck and drag you in. Heads of a bison, ram and deer, birds of prey and elk and moose horns line the walls above the dark-leather banquettes and antique cabinetry… It’s old school classy, hearkening back to a time when knowing your name, what you drank and how fast you needed a top-up was the norm.”
