The Bank Vault in One King Street West.

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

The Bank Vault, now a intimate dining room. This is a great place to lure your enemies (business competitor) with promise of a great meal and just close the door (from outside!) and claim you have forgotten the combination!

Available for rent, no cell phone reception! Ideal place to get rid of your mother in law. Toronto mafiosos are also frequent customers.

The original underground Dominion Bank vault. Built directly into the bedrock in 1913, the vault features an incredible 4-foot thick steel door that weighs 40 tonnes, yet can nonetheless be moved with a single finger. During construction, the gargantuan door was hauled up Yonge Street from the harbour by a team of 18 horses. Today the vault and surrounding event space is one of the hotel's most exciting and rare venues!
