The space
Step out of Toronto’s trendy west end and tumble directly into the vivid imagination of Tanya Grossi, whose relentless pursuit of her dreams led her to live full time in the master’s quarters of her own realized vision, ‘The Darling Mansion’. This property is an authentic Victorian mansion turned creative space & artist Haven.

The mansion was built in 1888 for one of Canada’s first female doctors, who ran her clinic from what is now Tanya’s bedroom. Her eclectic collection of artefacts and a sinfully-indulgent sense of interior design bring a surreal and Daliesque dynamic to this exciting historic property. After a glance through the photos, it should be apparent that Tanya has a background in antiques and boutique vintage apparel. But it’s her work as a DJ, and her own Queen West watering hole, Salvador Darling, that alludes to the sort of unique & unforgettable experience Tanya provides her guests.

Where you’ll be

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Darling Mansion is on residential Dovercourt Road, in downtown Toronto’s west end, between bustling Queen & Dundas Streets.

West Queen West was recently recognized by Vogue Magazine as one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in the world for street fashion, second only to Tokyo’s Shimokitazawa.

Dundas West is a pocket of city life tucked away from the city’s tourist destinations. This traditionally-Portuguese neighbourhood is now peppered with the neighbourhood cafes & bars of Toronto’s art, music, fashion & culinary communities.

A short streetcar ride east takes you to Kensington Market, Toronto’s vintage clothes and farm-fresh food district with a bohemian flair. Seconds beyond Kensington is the most iconic of Toronto’s three Chinatowns, with seemingly-infinite options for late-night dining through 5am.

Just southwest of the Darling Mansion is Parkdale: an up-and-coming, artistic neighbourhood that is home to the most sought after restaurants and live music community. My bar, Salvador Darling, is in Parkdale on Queen Street West, just west of Dufferin.

Check out the map on this listing - I’ve added few recommendations of my favourite local spots.

Your own room is your own private retreat. The Darling Mansion is my home. I live in the master’s quarters on the first floor with my dog, Enzo. You will be able to find me and other guests in the common parlour, in the garden and drawing room till 8pm. You can set the tone for how much interaction you wish to do. I am here to help. I am from Toronto, so I have lots of insight into the city’s hidden gems, with recommendations about what to see and what to skip to make your visit exceptional.
