{Event & venue review} Musiqhaus, a hot spot for drinks in Woodbridge

Website: http://musiqhaus.ca/
Address: 70 Interchange Way, AMC Plaza, Vaughan ON
When I attended: June 19, 2014

I recently achieved the “Elite” status as a Yelp reviewer which means that aside from being active in the online Yelp community and posting reviews, I would be invited to exciting social gatherings. The events are a way to reward and recognize the members for their commitment.

This was my first Yelp “Elite” event and I was able to bring two friends to join me to enjoy the evening. I finally met the Yelp GTA community manager Kris (@YelpGTA) and event organizer who convinced me to join Yelp in the first place through our Twitter discussions.

MusiqHaus in Woodbridge was a wonderful venue to host the group. The rustic building had been transformed into an entertainment restobar with weekly live music entertainment. The interior felt very “lounge” like with dark lighting, couches on one side of the wall and many tables set for resting our drinks. The interior led to a spacious patio with a bar and ample spaces to sit. This was my favourite spot of the venue and for the evening. The live band did an excellent job with cover songs of top 40 hits.

The food they offered were called “social small plates”and included haus sliders, sweet potato fries, mini burgers and baby parfaits (see menu here). The food was tasty however as it was prime dinner time; the food did not come out quick enough for my hungry belly. Having sat at the end of the patio, the servers often ran out of food by the time they got to us.  With two bars opened, there was always a drink on hand. Aside from unlimited juice and pop, we were offered the “muse cocktail” (rum based), “envy cocktail” (tequila based) and “purple rain martini” (vodka).

Overall:

With summer officially here, Musiqhaus should be a hot spot for drinks on the patio without having to drive downtown Toronto to enjoy live entertainment. I appreciated the hospitality and being part of the fun event. At the next outing, I need to sit closer to where the food is and proactively meet other Elite members.
