Are you planning an event? Dockside Restaurant offers a range of options perfect for groups of 30 to 300. From corporate dinners, wedding parties, tour groups, private receptions or gala events, the Dockside Restaurant has several different spaces available for rental or buyouts and our expert team is fully versed in working through your plans and building menus to please and satisfy your guests while staying on budget.
Our largest space, The Dockside Restaurant, can accommodate groups of 200+ people for sit down banquets and up to 300 people for stand up reception-style events. The dining room is fully equipped with its own Island bar and the floor to ceiling wrap around windows overlooking False Creek and Yaletown’s world-famous skyline provide an incredible backdrop for your event. The 50-foot long tropical fresh water aquarium is a conversation piece and a highlight of any event. During summer months, groups that buy out the restaurant also have use of their own “dockside” patio.
Within our restaurant, The Dockside Semi-Private Dining Room is ideal for smaller groups of up to 40 guests, great for corporate dinners and post-wedding brunch.
The Dockside Lounge can accommodate groups of up to 100 people for sit down banquets and up to 120 people for stand up receptions. The room is fully equipped with its own bar and a DJ booth with a dedicated sound system and microphone. Indoor and outdoor gas fireplaces add character and warmth to the room while a dedicated section of our newly renovated patio provides scenic views of False Creek and Downtown Vancouver. Smaller parties of 40 or less may reserve the window section overlooking the Dockside Patio with a pre-ordered menu.
