Looking for a venue in Vancouver for cocktails and appetizers for 50, financial crowd

Hi all,
Hoping for some help. Looking for a venue to host 50 + for cocktails and appetizers in Vancouver for the financial industry. Would like a private room in a restaurant or bar?
Any suggestions? All help is much appreciated.

  1. Market by JG ? They have several private rooms:

    Law Courts Inn:

    I know I'll get bashed for this, but Steamworks has 3 rooms good for 40ppl or more. Two of which (Uber Lounge, Harbour View) I've been to for wedding and similar special occasions and might work for your group:

      Heh, I don't think you'll get bashed for suggesting Steamworks. I don't care if the 1%ers do their schmoozing there...leaves more room for the rest of us at other places :)

    2. Gallery Cafe? I think they do private bookings.

      1. Another one (not near financial dist. per se) is VRC - Vancouver Rowing Club clubhouse. I've organized a work retreat in the Harbour Room once and it worked out very well, except for the food catering which was rather disappointing that time (by The Butler Did It). But on a nice day, the setting is lovely:
