Work at Paradise

We are currently hiring Line Cooks.

Here are some reasons Paradise will be a great place to work:

  1. Surround yourself with the best in food, drink, film, music, comedy and more. Paradise will include full-service Italian restaurant Osteria Rialto, aperitivo-focused cocktail bar Bar Biltmore and mid-size venue Paradise Theatre, which will present both film and live performance.

  2. Industry-leading training program. We care deeply about knowledge-sharing, with partners including Sistering on de-escalation and Naloxone administration, Canadian National Institute for the Blind on inclusivity, Terus on sustainability, and much more.

  3. Learn new things. We want our staff to take full advantage of the myriad offerings on site. For example, if a Floor Staff employee at Paradise Theatre is interested in learning more about wine, they are more than welcome to join wine tasting with the Rialto and Biltmore teams.

  4. Build your career. Be supported in working across units. Gain experience working in a high-volume theatre, restaurant and cocktail bar without leaving 1006 Bloor St W!

  5. Fairness and equity. We will have a transparent tip pool, full HR policies and are forward-looking to fairness in the hospitality and arts and culture industries.

  6. We’re starting with you in mind. We know that hospitality doesn’t just extend to the guest, and making our staff feel valued is an important part of making a space feel good. Check out our Code of Conduct.

  7. Paradise is yours. You will be part of our opening team! Make your mark while helping shape a new Toronto landmark. 

What’s Paradise all about?

  • What we do: 
    Bring people together to share memorable experiences.

  • How we do it:
    Create a hospitality-first curated offering with broad appeal. 

  • Why we do it:
    To connect, delight and inspire.
    To create opportunities to feel human.

If our mission and vision speaks to you, then you’re already part of the team in spirit! We look forward to hearing from everyone.
