Cluny Bistro Toronto



Richly layered, quintessentially French

A former tank house in the city’s historic Distillery District, Cluny embodies the quintessential French bistro – with a creative and modern design approach. To enhance the warmth of the bar’s original brick walls and add visual interest, GZ installed antique gilded mirrors of varying shapes and sizes. In the main restaurant, GZ sourced antique French Limoges porcelain, sterling silver wine decanters and French porcelain figurines for the six 10’ high custom vitrines, creating small, curated stories throughout the space – the authentic antiques in a modern French setting further enhancing the total restaurant experience.

“Cluny’s good looks are almost theatrical. Picture a Belle Époque bistro crossed with Versailles, with antique porcelains and toile fabrics under globe lighting.”
