TIFF Insider: Nikki Beach at The Spoke Club
The 39th Toronto International Film Festival is coming to a close and there are still a few choice soirees to attend but none sparkle quite as bright as the infamous Nikki Beach Toronto hosted inside our city's only private club for creative professionals, The Spoke Club. Whether you're enjoying brunch, dinner or bottle service, this exclusive venue hosted is known amongst TIFF insiders as one of the best places to see and be seen. Internationally, Nikki Beach is the ultimate beach club experience. A vision created by entrepreneur, Jack Pernod, that typically uses some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world as the backdrop for art, fashion, cuisine, film and music. In Toronto, the scene beckons celebs like Penelope Cruz, Owen Wilson and Bradley Cooper and of course, tons of TIFF goers hoping to rub elbows with celebs.
The sun has set on Nikki Beach 2014, but if you manage to snag an invite next year here's what you need to know.
What to drink: The Zacapa Mai Tai featuring Zacapa Ron 23 | Grand Marnier | Orgeat | Lime
What to eat: Ocean Wise Nicoise Salad featuring Ultra-Rare Loin | Olive Oil Poached Toro | Heirloom Tomatoes | Peruvian Potatoes | Garden Bean | Black Olive Salad Deviled Egg | White Anchovy Antiboise
What to wear: All white if you're attending opening night otherwise think South Beach Sophisticate. Bring on the colour and be perfectly on trend!
A word to the wise: Reservations and invites to Nikki Beach events can be hard to come by but The Spoke Club members are able to make reservations weeks before the public and enjoy priority entry. One of the many fabulous benefits of joining The Spoke Club.
