Vancouver- Very very large group

A Daily Scoop Sep 12, 2007 11:41 AM

I will be getting married next June in Vancouver (destination wedding) and need a place to have a dinner the night before. (Not a formal "groom's dinner.) Possibly 40-50 people and it needs to be cheap and have beer and have a private room. The food doesn't have to be great. Nothing formal. Something more fun and relaxed. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Steamwork's Brewery has a private room that would hold about 40-50. It's not usually open to the public, but can only be rented out. This kind of sounds like what you're looking for.

      I would second Steamworks (they have several private options depending on the size of your party). I'd also suggest the Dockside Pub at the Granville Island Hotel. The restaurant is a bit more expensive but the pub is lovely and has a nice patio. You can also reserve the entire space for private functions.

      Definitely agree with Steamworks. I had a big party there in their private room (with windows overlooking the ocean).. you can get beer towers and pizza and it's a great time. Highly recommended.
