A rich multi-layered venue, The Toff boasts a premier boutique performance space and a dedicated club/bar area with late night dining. Located on the second floor of historic Curtin House (just a floor above sister venue Cookie), The Toff has been designed to celebrate the natural beauty of the amazing building in which it is situated.
The Toffâ€™s main bar or â€˜carriage roomâ€™ is fitted out with a unique train carriage running down the centre, made up of booths which can be reserved for dining. Each booth can be made as private as desired by closing doors, pulling down blinds and using the discreet buzzer for service-evoking the intimacy and elegance of early 20th century train travel.
The restaurant ( http://choochoos.com.au ), created by chef Karen Batson boasts a Thai menu, designed to be shared in an intimate Toff booth. There is a sophisticated beverage list to match, with local and imported beers, wines and spirits. Cocktails are available for those who wish to add an extra splash of decadence to their evening!
The mood is set by local DJs playing lush, dark and sexy sounds into the wee hours of the morning-with the bar and kitchen opened until 3am weekdays and 5am on the weekends.
The Toffâ€™s stage room hosts the full spectrum of Australian performing arts including music (from pop to country to ensembles), dance, comedy, and theatre, as well as touring international acts. Described as â€˜a naughty room with an intimate cabaret feelâ€™ the space has a capacity ranging from 150 (fully seated) to 300 (standing only). Featuring live music most nights of the week, the room transforms into a nightclub later into the night featuring local DJs weekly plus international guests on a regular basis.
