Fall n’ Leaves
After a wildly successful first season in 2020, Fall n’ Leaves is back this year from October 1 to 17, with outdoor woodfired food and beverages to suit everyone’s taste. Boasting incredible seasonal decor complete with hay bales, fire pits, patio cocktails, and pumpkins galore, everything about this experience is perfect for amazing photos to fulfill all your Instagram dreams. Live acoustic music is now offered on some nights to complete the Autumn vibe, and the pumpkin patch is transformed into a dancefloor with a live DJ every Friday and Saturday night so you can party into the evening!
The woodfired menu offers a range of on-theme pizzas, pastas, soups, salads, and desserts, with a variety of vegetarian options available. Ever wanted to try a wood fire orange zest hot chocolate served in a pumpkin? Or some apple cinnamon churros and apple cider? I didn’t know I needed these things in my life but now I DO, I really really do. The pumpkin spice pizza is new this year, and let me tell you – it is AMAZING. The pop-up is licensed for 19+ (and the range of fall-inspired cocktails is to die for), but children and families are also welcome to come and join in the pumpkin-painting fun!
Fall n’ Leaves is a large outdoor open-concept space, allowing for social distancing and a COVID-safe evening out. Guests are required to ‘scan in’ on their smartphones for contact tracing on entry, and sanitization stands are available throughout the venue. Masks are recommended, though not strictly required as the pop-up is entirely outdoors. The organisers have ensured this is a stress-free night out where everyone can feel safe.
All the Deets
Open Monday to Friday 5pm-11pm, and Saturday to Sunday 12pm-midnight, you can find the Fall n’ Leaves Pop Up at 621 Richmond St W, Toronto from October 1. No tickets are required for general entry, but you will need to book for groups of 10 or more.
If you want to partake in a more organised experience, Fall n’ Leaves offers wine tasting and paint nights as ticketed events available in groups of 4 or 6, though the opening weekend is already sold out! Following October 17, the venue is also available for private bookings, so if you have an October birthday, this could be an amazing party space! Plus, make sure you look out for the pop-up’s Halloween and Oktoberfest events at the end of October – reserve a table early!
