By now, you’ve heard about the Soho House launching its Toronto chapter. (And if you haven’t, you’ve either not been following along on our TIFF section, or you’ve been on expedition in the Great White North and are just back from exploring the polar ice caps.) In any case, while its official member launch isn’t until mid-month, it was primed and prepped for the Grey Goose Soho House parties during this year’s TIFF.
While the access to these uber-exclusive cast parties is, well, uber-exclusive, we were granted a little taste (literally) of what’s in store for the stars. On the brisk first Saturday of TIFF, we arrived at Weslodge late morning to meet Dimi Lezinska, the Global Brand Ambassador for Grey Goose, to sample the cocktails he’s been mixing up for stars like Emily Blunt, Bruce Willis, Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgard, and the list goes on, at the Grey Goose Soho House events.
During set-up, Nicki and Dimi chatted en Francais – he’s a Parisian native – until the bar was stocked with Grey Goose’s array of vodkas and Dimi was ready to make some star-powered drinks for Ms. Laborie. While we don’t recommend attempting to put dry ice in your drinks at home (check out the video to see the beautiful Grey Goose Tea for Toronto), Dimi shows us how to mix a perfectly balanced Grey Goose Le Fizz and talks shop with Nicki over a towering glass of Chez Grey Goose.
So, what’s being shaken, stirred, and finessed by the charmingly talented Lezinska at the Grey Goose Soho House? Watch to find out…
