Larry’s Hideaway/The Prince Carlton Hotel

toronto_larrys-1 larysH

Formerly the Prince Carlton Hotel.

Larry’s Hideaway was demolished in 1993 or so.

A review from the Toronto Guide Book of 1966 says:

“Very big, popular restaurant with five distinct dining areas, seating more than 400. One suggests Old New Orleans; another, the Whistle Stop,

entertains diners with a miniature train. Famous for huge banquet-like dinners of ten courses. Moderately expensive.”


Below, the final days…
