The Gladstone Hotel is pleased to present Fly By Night 2016 during Nuit Blanche Toronto on October 1st (from dusk till dawn). #FlyByNight2016 will showcase temporary installations with a particular focus on adaptive and ephemeral performance and installation in the hotel's second floor studio spaces, hallway and throughout the building.

Fly By Night will embody the unexpected and boundary-pushing, creative one-night-only art experiences within one of the West End’s most renowned cultural hub. Guests will experience the visual, experiential, and participatory in the Gladstone's various venue spaces including installations on the 2nd floor. You can then dance the night away at our 80's Sci-Fi Inspired Dance Party or sing your heart out with Karaoke in the Melody Bar. There is (always) artfulness throughout the Gladstone Hotel!

The Gladstone Hotel is where ideas are cultivated and magic happens. It’s where people come to participate. It’s an accessible space that allows artists, travellers and diners to collide, collaborate, disagree, debate, fall in love, get in trouble and get away with it. Set within the historic walls of Toronto’s oldest continually operating hotel, the Gladstone has evolved into a social and cultural house with 37 artist designed hotel rooms, a restaurant + bar and four unique event venues.
