while the debate rages on about whether King West or Yorkville is the city’s true glamour mecca, a certain nightlife swami prefers to hedge his bets. Last year, Khabouth cut the ribbon on Bisha, his lavish hotel around the corner from TIFF Bell Lightbox, the rooftop where Vanity Fair hosted their 2018 TIFF bash.
