On September 2013, Valeri Baratov became the new proud owner of National. Valeri, right away, saw enormous potential in this event venue and dedicated all of his time and effort to give the National a new and exciting look and feel. Improvements were made in virtually all areas, with management being the primary focus. Valeri always says and believes that a great management is crucial to the success of any kind of business and he couldn’t be more right! With a much stronger team in place, we are now prepared to offer you better performing serving staff, more exciting entertainment programs and a newly designed menu that will have you and all of your friends saying nothing but positive things.
It is worthy to mention some of the individual qualities of the event venue that make up its unique “character” and feel.
We also believe that the interior plays an important role in the choice of venue for the life’s important events such as birthday celebrations or a wedding. That is why the National, which is rightly considered the largest and most spacious banquet hall in Toronto, made a bid for a great design and an attractive layout that offers our guests a really festive environment with a solemn ambience at the same time. The combination of classic style with sensual Baroque takes you to a completely different world of luxury and pleasure far from the everyday hurries and worries. At National, every feature and detail was meticulously thought-out – from the convenient placement of tables with a clear view of the entertainment stage and the dance floor, to the exquisite and colorful design of the table decorations.
It’s hard to describe in words the beauty of the National. As the saying goes – “it is better to see once than hear a hundred times”. You should see it for yourself!
Cuisine is the main part of any event venue, and the menu at National truly stands out in its wide selection of fine food and its unique taste! The most demanding gourmand will find the freshest delights to treat their stomach and soul. No matter what national cuisine you prefer: Russian, Ukrainian or other, our new chef will not disappoint you as our dishes are made fresh daily to please your gastronomical tastes! For those, who are looking for exciting flavor accents in their favorite dishes, the new chef at National is a master all around. He is not only virtuous in culinary arts, but also attentive to the changing trends of modern culinary fashion.
And that’s not all! National transformed and became exhilarating with new artists, singers and show repertoires! Now, the National, features the best voices in Toronto such as Gena Malyshevski, Catherine Sivak, Edi Shimonov, Dave Spector, as well as some of the most famous stars like Christina Malyshevski and Nancy Adejor. Without a doubt, this is the best creative team National has ever had on stage! You will not find this sort of richness of repertoire, and variety of musical styles anywhere else in Toronto.
You definitely need to see the new shows of the event venue with all their diversity and beauty of performances that promise to leave you with unforgettable memories lasting a life-time! Stunning performances with fire and snakes, belly-dancing and classical dance performances, stunning acrobatics – we hope that these magnificent shows will make your evening relaxing, bright, intense and memorable.
