The Raq was first established in 1997, long before the facelift of Queen Street West occurred. We were one of the first bars to arrive in this wonderful neighbourhood and over the years the changes have been outstanding. As the changes in the community occurred, so did the needs of its residents and so our format too was altered. Raq is no longer simply the local billiard, we are the local bar/lounge and we have become a destination for many others.
We have hosted such an array of events that no party is too small nor too elaborate. From birthday gatherings to team building events to film/TV wrap parties and everything in between, we've had the pleasure and experience in facilitating very successful and memorable events such as:
WRAP PARTIES: The Strain, Saving Hope, Rookie Blue, Killjoys, Murdoch Mysteries, Max and Shred, The Next Step, Full Out, Writers Guild, Canadian Media, etc.
CORPORATE EVENTS: KPMG, Ernst&Young, Deloitte, TD Bank, RBC, CIBC, BMO, Ontario Government, consulting companies, law firms, Loblaw, Umbra, Workopolis, Aversan, Westin Hotel, Intercontinental, and many others.
