Montreal’s superstar supper club, a timeless piece of the city’s lifestyle and entertainment, is set to come to Toronto as details unfold of Buonanotte‘s fall opening. It should come as no surprise that the man bringing the concept to Mercer Street (along with some of the original Buonanotte founding team from Montreal) is INK’s Charles Khabouth, who is currently in the midst of a development frenzy that includes expanding Toronto’s nightlife scene with a host of swanky venues, plans to reinvigorate the near-forgotten Docks complex and condominium investments. His most recent project, King West’s Weslodge, has already become a staple for young professionals downtown, so we’re excited to see what the once-dubbed King of Clubs envisions for one of Montreal’s most famed supper clubs.
Toronto’s Buonanotte will likely become another rendition of Khabouth’s one-stop approach to nightlife that combines both culinary delight and dance club together, with the same attention to detail, VIP service and party atmosphere we’ve come to expect from INK. Perhaps most intriguing, though, is that Buonanotte’s menu will consist of Italian items from chef Sandro Carpene at their original location.
Buonanotte is scheduled to open in the first week of November in the space formerly occupied by AME.
