Marked with the 2008 restoration and reopening of the historic Vogue Theatre in Vancouver BC, The MRG Group has become one of the leading hospitality and entertainment companies in Canada. The Group now owns and operates ten properties across the country, our preeminent venues include, Vogue Theatre, Dublin Calling, Yale Saloon, Imperial and Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver along with The Garrick in Winnipeg and Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon, The Porch, Dublin Calling and Adelaide Hall in Toronto.
Extending beyond the in-venue experience, MRG Concerts was created as an amplification of the entertainment branch and has established itself as an industry-leading Canadian independent concert and event presenter producing over 800 shows per year.
Striving to bring the MRG experience to the masses, MRG Events was born in early 2017 from the love of creating unforgettable fun. The inaugural event, an “Après Ski” themed party left guests with memories to covet and share. Additionally, Toronto’s first ever Budweiser County Fair was brought to life on King St West featuring classic fair games, BBQ and a stage featuring up and coming Canadian country acts. In 2017, MRG Events joined forces with award-winning John Donnelly & Associates to build out MRG Events across the country.
Founder and President Matthew Gibbons, whose unwavering passion to deliver ‘the unforgettable’ since beginning his ventures, has ensured a committed emphasis on the “MRG Experience”. This passion remains deeply rooted in everything we do and is the foundation our group has been built upon.
Our core values and appreciation for quality entertainment come together in providing an unpretentious environment, which is immediately reflected when walking into any one of our venues or events. Driven by excellence and a continuing desire to evolve, we pride ourselves on creating positive shareable experiences.
We create moments to remember, moments which become the fabric of your stories and ours.
