Stanley Park Pavilion: what do users think?
chloé fuchs: I love the burger here, so delicious and eating outside on the patio is great!
Michael Bailey: Nice venue, terrible acoustics in the room. Staff quite good as is the food.
Robert Henley: Nice quiet stop.
Kishan Geeganage: The Stanley Park Pavilion is a charming and historic venue located in the heart of Stanley Park. The building itself is stunning and features a beautifully restored ballroom and restaurant. The outdoor patio is surrounded by lush greenery and offers a picturesque view of the park. The food is delicious and reasonably priced, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. The venue is perfect for weddings, events, and other special occasions. However, parking can be challenging, and the pavilion can get busy during peak tourist season. Overall, the Stanley Park Pavilion is a lovely place to visit for a meal or event, and its stunning location in the park makes it a unique and memorable experience.
Joe Ousley: Such a beautiful stop surrounded by manicured gardens. The restaurant offers great views of the woods and gardens. The food was full of flavor and generous in portion. The butter chicken, fish & chips, and seafood chowder are all recommended. Even on a cold and rainy day, there was great beauty to be seen, and the gracious hospitality at the restaurant made for great memories.
Margueite Long: Absolutely beautiful. Such a fun walk.
Juan José Scillato: Excelente, más natural imposible
E: Ordered: House burger (5/5), w/ daily soup; cream of corn (4/5), Lois Lake steelhead salmon (5/5), apple crumble cake (4/5), blackberry iced tea mocktail (3/5), & double caesar cocktail (2/5).I really enjoyed the food here. The wagyu beef patty house burger is delicious. The soup could have used a little more flavour, but it wasn't bad. The salmon was cooked to perfection (not overdone, and the fish was delicate and moist). Apple crumble cake to be a little dry without the help of vanilla ice cream, and not enough caramel sauce/apples.The drinks were not the best, but they weren't the worst either. The blackberry ice tea mocktail i feel would have been better if fresh muddled blackberries were used, & personally, perhaps i would have preferred lemonade over ice tea... the caesar's flavour was lacking worchestershire sauce but we enjoyed the garnishes.
Kush N (mISs KUSHIE): Amazing staff, great venue!
Dëmin Photography (Wedding Photographer): As a wedding photographer, I have had the pleasure of shooting at numerous wedding venues in Vancouver, but Stanley Park Pavilion stands out on it's own. This boutique wedding venue is located in one of the most beautiful and sought-after locations in Vancouver and is truly a photographer's dream come true.The Stanley Park Pavilion is a stunning heritage venue that provides a magnificent outdoor ceremony space combined with first-class catering services and an attentive events team. The four unique spaces at Stanley Park Pavilion each offer a neutral color palette, which is perfect for any occasion. The natural light, high ceilings, and beautiful views overlooking the Stanley Park gardens make it an ideal location for wedding photography.The beautiful formal gardens and side lawn situated in front and beside Stanley Park Pavilion make for the perfect outdoor venue for any event. As a photographer, I can say that the outdoor venue provides an amazing backdrop for capturing beautiful moments and creating lasting memories.I would highly recommend this venue to any couple looking for an elegant and unique location to tie the knot. Overall, my experience at Stanley Park Pavilion was exceptional, and I cannot wait to shoot there again in the future.
Barbara Kitson: Had a great burger and a glass of wine, friendly staff
Violet Devera: An absolute nightmare dealing with the event management team at Stanley Park Pavilion. We had our wedding reception there on October 1, 2022. The most unprofessional group of people we had to work with for our wedding. Deceitfulness, extreme lack of communication, and blatant disrgard for any professionalism. What was supposed to be a fun and exciting time planning a wedding, Buket, Shawn, and Doug managed to turn into a traumatic event. A job well done.
Tracy Gosling: Had fun at the BMO St. Patrick's Day 5K Race 🏁 . They did a great job again!
Sajna Karim: Visited the location for the 74th indian republic day celebrations and loved the ambiance!! ❤️
Melissa Meng: This is really nice and quiet place to hold an event around 70 peoples , a lot parking lots, we are invited to participate Manulife Vitality seminar here, like environment,worthy to go. Suitable for small or middle party to be hold here.
Jared: Just went to a wedding here and had such a wonderful time.
Elena Pakalnis: The venue itself is absolutely stunning! The garden where the ceremony is held is gorgeous! The tearoom and ballroom is renovated and so classy! The food was exceptional !!! The bridal room is great and very handy. The acoustics are fantastic. Bartenders are amazing!We would 100 percent recommend Stanley Park Pavilion to host your wedding but please read below as prior to signing your contract I would ensure you make a special request to receive timely/clear communication.Advice for future brides and grooms:1) ask when you should expect to hear from them after booking your wedding2) ask for a point person that will remain consistent for the time leading up to your wedding3) stress the importance of sending the final invoice by the deadline4) ask for the excel document for the seating plan they expect you to follow well in advance (this is is a HUGE time saver as they have specific seating numbers you need to follow)
Adnan Khan: Restaurant
Charlotte Bell: Have your wedding here! I have been to 6 weddings recently and while all were absolutely lovely, it is my completely unbiased opinion that my son and daughter-in-law's wedding at the Stanley Park Pavilion was second to none! The venue itself is magnificent! From start to end, Buket and the entire team were extremely professional and delightful (they magically transformed the room where the ceremony was held into a cocktail reception in record timing)! And every single appetizer and item on the buffet was beyond delicious! I highly recommend this venue for a wedding!!!
Telma Fernandes: Very beautiful place!
Paul Mittermiller: Beautiful wedding venue

Brock House Restaurant: what do users think?
RJW L: My husband and I got married last year at Brock House. We got overcharged. They would lie about the alcohol consumption, I knew because I asked the coordinator on the same day of how many bottles left from what er ordered, but the management overbilled us way more than what we even ordered and wouldnt admit it.Service was poor. The salad was not fresh, crouton was soggy when served. Some of my guest said it did not worth it.I would definately not recommend Brock house. You also find no way to connect with the managers except for emails, which they took days and weeks to reply.
Dëmin Photography (Wedding Photographer): I've had the pleasure of photographing numerous weddings at Brock House Restaurant, and it remains one of my favourite venues in Vancouver. The stunning natural backdrop of mountains, ocean, and towering trees, coupled with the pristine evergreen lawn and easy access to the beach, make it an ideal location for any special occasion. Additionally, the elegant heritage building adds a touch of timeless charm to the setting.In terms of catering, I must say that the grilled salmon is among my top picks. It's always perfectly cooked and bursting with flavour, a true highlight of the menu. Overall, I highly recommend Brock House Restaurant for anyone seeking a picturesque, elegant, and memorable wedding venue.
Barbara Paul: What a stunning place to have a wedding! Our arrangements were looked after perfectly by the Brock house staff. The bride's room was a great place for everyone to get ready, and the house provided a lovely setting for the first photos. The big tree made a beautiful backdrop, along with the ocean and mountain view. When the service was over, servers were ready with punch while the guests mingled on the lawn. At noon, a delicious buffet lunch was provided and the tent looked beautiful. After postponing for Covid, it was wonderful to finally have our dream wedding. Thanks to all the Brock House staff who dealt so efficiently with all the arrangements and questions over the two year wait! Photos are by Hyperfocus photography.
Demian Mcrae: I got married here. Really nice venue with an outside area as well. In wetter colder times a tent can be set up, there is a really nice background for all the wedding pictures plus some nice indoor areas that look fantastic. Food and drink package was great and the best part was that all set up and clean up was taken care of by the staff, all that was needed was the decorating and then take down of that. It was totally worth it, we got married off season so it was cheaper that way.
Mara M Baltazhar: Excellent quality
Jeremy Fong: Perfect for weddings
Garry Robinson: Great wedding venue and food was amazing loved it
Vancouver Harp: Beautiful place for a wedding!’I love the breeze from the sea :)
WILLIAM REN: This is a great place for party event! The setting is wonderful. The food is delicious. The scenic view of sunset is awesome
Candice johnson: Salmon was cooked to perfection, unbeliestunning property, fantastic staff!
Michelle Morris: Brock House is a beautiful location. My criticisms are due to poor execution and post accounting administration. We learned the following the hard way. Now you don’t have to:Make note of the earliest access to the site (if having an early day meeting) is at 8:30am. But that doesn’t mean that they will have any staff there, or the building open at that time. It just means you can stand in the lawn at that time and wait for their staff to arrive. You can’t get into the building until 9am - that time is not just for the bridal room but the whole building.If you are planning your wedding there, have a good understanding of how many service staff they will have on that day. We found that the bar was often closed because the bartender was serving food at the tables so our guests could not be served by the bar.Be sure to confirm with the planner, that your guests can order drinks from the bar at their table or they will not be able to get any drinks like my guests. Our guests went thirsty.The servers are only allowed to fill wine glasses up to maybe 5oz and they are not allowed to leave the bottles on the tables when guests ask, and no server or coordinator will pass on that request to you if it does come up.Make sure you take photographs of the food and drinks, so you can compare with your final bill when it arrives. (I have photographs showing they did not put out the infused strawberry water, but they’re still charging me $50 for it anyways, and won’t respond to my inquiry).Make sure your plate numbers are what you asked for on your bill. They mentioned that two more plates were ordered at table #2 on the day but my guest list never changed and my guests at the table say no plates were ordered. The kitchen/chef overrules your photos and accounts.Make sure you know that the walls on the tent are fully down with only one door that faces the house open, restricting the flow from the tent to the lawn. At least they told me you can’t open those tent walls but that’s not what I see in all the photographs on Google of past weddings there.Make sure that even though they tell you the microphone is available in the tent for speeches you still need one if you don’t have a DJ.Make sure you create a rainy day floor plan as well as a sunny day floor plan. They won’t tell you to do this but if it’s a rainy day your plan will not be the same and they will make-up your floor plan without consultation.There are million of other issues that we encountered that they refused to acknowledge or respond to. So do realize that is their level of customer service on the back end.We had a beautiful wedding in spite of it all but it’s because we decided to think that way. When thinking too much about the execution and post accounting it can taint the day. However, it is a wonder that an establishment whose only job is to manage events like these doesn’t have these issues worked out and operates like a finely oiled machine.Good luck!
alexccccccccc: washroom very dirty
Bryan Young: Rock house
Debra St: My son was able to finally have his wedding after 2 years of Covid delays. We were sad that they couldn't have the ceremony outdoors as the rain just wouldn't stop. Heaters were fine with ceremony and dinner in the tent. Food was fantastic.
Heather: Absolutely ridiculous. Attended a wedding and was genuinely appalled by this place. Their lack of attention to detail, lack of willingness to compromise, and disturbed attitude, etc, was despicable. The amount of money versus what was actually supplied was embarrassing. Whoever intended this to be a magical place for people to celebrate their love should be mortified. A beautiful location and that’s it. I would not recommend this venue for anyone to get married.
Denys Goude: Lovely location for a wedding.
Shadi M: Jeremy was great at our wedding day. he and the rest of the staff made the day very special for us. The food was great and Brock house was very quick in responding to our emails and accomodate our requests . Thanks for making our wedding day stress free and fun
Kevin Shen: Fancy venue with ocean view.
C T: Beautiful ocean and city view. Old tradition restaurant for special events.
a t: Catered food was delicious
Danielle Douglas: We had our dream wedding at the Brock House Restaurant. The Brock House exceeded our expectations. Here are just a few reasons you should book your wedding at the Brock House:1. The views at the Brock House are incredible, our out of town guests were especially impressed - gorgeous sunset. This also meant that very little decor/florals were needed for the ceremony.2. Everyone we dealt with at the Brock House were kind and seemed to care about ensuring the wedding guests had a good time; service was excellent - always making sure guests glasses were full. They made sure there was enough staff so everything ran very smoothly.3. The food was also exceptional (particularly the sable fish and the late night mac and cheese), and exceeded the quality from our tasting.4. They accommodated different dietary restrictions - with even a meal for our guests who were gluten free and vegan.5. They were very flexible, willing to order in special wine for us.6. The tent is already decorated with chandeliers so it makes decor very easy. They have nice chairs so you don't need to rent others, they even printed off menus for own guests and have nice table numbers.7. The lead up to the wedding was relatively stressful given the ever-evolving public health orders; The Brock House was very transparent with us and provided lots of options in case the public health order wouldn't allow us to have the wedding we wanted.We are just so thankful we had our wedding at the Brock House and cannot recommend it enough!The photos below are by Scott Little photography.

Cecil Green Park House: what do users think?
Катерина Луценко: Wonderful place😍
Carissa Chapman: We had an incredible time at this venue. All of the staff were phenomenal and it was the perfect wedding venue for us.
Dëmin Photography (Wedding Photographer): I've had the pleasure of photographing several weddings at this stunning venue in Vancouver, and I can confidently say that it's one of the best choices for a memorable wedding day. The heritage house is brimming with character and offers ample space for both indoor ceremonies and receptions. Additionally, the lush green lawn provides a perfect backdrop for larger ceremonies, especially on sunny days. One of my favourite features of this venue is the upper deck, which provides a breathtaking view of the sunset and makes for an unforgettable photo spot. I'm always excited to return to this venue and capture beautiful memories for happy couples on their special day.
Charles Armstrong: A stunning yet intimate space, Cecil Green Park House was the perfect setting for our wedding reception. Thanks to all the helpful and friendly staff as well.
Derek M: We held a reception after a funeral at Cecil Green, and it was a very nice venue for such an occasion. UBC's Sage provided the catering, and everything went very smoothly and uneventfully. Having been to Cecil Green many times over the years, it is definitely an excellent venue for all sorts of occasions - weddings, social gatherings, other celebrations, and well even funeral receptions.
Lucas Herrenbrueck: 2022 wedding here. Beautiful venue - would highly recommend on that count. Communication with venue staff was fine.Docked a point for having Sage as the exclusive caterer - see my (3★) review of Sage on their page. That said, the wedding itself was wonderful. If you're prepared for a cost overrun and a bit of micromanaging (and I suppose you are if you're planning a wedding), I'd very much recommend Cecil Green, and I'd recommend them even more enthusiastically if they offered a choice of caterer.
Cherlyn Cortes-Manderson: “THAT'S THE BEST VENUE IN VANCOUVER”. This is what a long-time event planner told my friend when she told her my wedding was going to be at the Cecil Green Park House. And I believe that she was spot on. We loved getting married and celebrating with our loved ones in a beautiful home, and many of our guests spoke about how they felt as if they were a part of one big family in the intimate and gorgeous setting of the Yorkeen dining room. We planned our wedding during what should have been a very stressful period – amidst a pandemic with evolving restrictions. But it honestly never felt that stressful and this is partly because of Gordon, Gordon, Gordon! Gordon Purchase was our person! At the time, he was our event manager and he was always there to respond to our many questions, listen to our concerns and calm us down - in the kindest way. We were also very fortunate that Cecil Green is one of the few wedding venues in Vancouver with its own covered patio. Despite some light rain, we said our I do’s outside, with a view of the Salish Sea behind us. And due to restrictions at the time, dancing and mingling wasn’t permitted inside, but because of that large patio and park-like setting, we still had cocktail hour, a foosball table, air hockey and the realization of our dream – a karaoke dance party!(photos @georgiajohnstonphotography, decor @ellssirentals, florals @jorbelinaflowers)
Kim Johnson: Great wedding venue
Wendy Li: We had our wedding at Cecil Green on Aug 12, 2022 (booked in Jul 2021) and it was everything we wanted and more! The house and grounds speak for themselves, but are even more beautiful in person. We worked with Amber as our venue coordinator and she was SO professional, friendly, patient, and helpful--answering our many questions and working to ensure that all of our details were as we wanted. We weren't involved in behind-the-scenes on the day-of, but the on-site staff we interacted with were also professional, friendly, and helpful and everything went according to plan! All in all, a fantastic experience working with Cecil Green from beginning to end and would recommend to anyone who is considering having their wedding there!
Alison C: Excellent, quick service. My questions were answered very quickly, even during prime events season via email. The ventilation stayed under 800ppm (even in the washrooms) - meaning the space is well-ventilated (note that it goes up with more people in the space), and the risks for catching airborne diseases are lowered. Delicious food and professional service from the servers. 100% recommend.
Ian Whitehead: This past Friday night was my daughter’s wedding, held at Cecil Green.Please pass along my thanks to your team, as father of the bride, for setting up this absolutely flawless event, enjoyed by all.As a member of the UBC alumni myself, as were the bride and groom, I am truly thankful to you guys for what you do.The venue is stunning, the atmosphere was perfect, the staff were so pleasant. Just a superb event.Ian Whitehead
Karen Kinna: Beautiful for a wedding reception.
Sarah G: I recently had my wedding here and it was absolutely beautiful. It is one of those types of venues where the grounds and building is already stunning so not much extra decoration is even needed. I had the best time here and I know from guest feedback that everyone also said it was so beautiful. Thank you to Amber for helping us out with everything, along with navigating the challenges with covid and postponements as well!
Olof Premkumar: Beautiful place to have a wedding or personal functions .. with catering.
Mark Lange: Beautiful place to have a wedding
Shari O'Neill: Gorgeous inside
Jenelle M: Beautiful wedding venue.
Jaime Baumgartner: So beautiful!
Felicia Laron: Working with Amber and Nicole from Cecil Green Park House has been an absolute delight. Even with Covid restrictions and ever-changing rules, they were able to accommodate us and all of our guests to allow us to have our dream wedding. Suggestions were made when needed and their communication with us throughout the entire process was great. With small hiccups in our plans, such as "no outdoor music past 9pm" and "no dancing indoors", they were able to provide us with the venue the entire day to make room for this "deal breaker" aspect of our wedding. I would definitely recommend CGPH for your upcoming wedding or special event, as everyone was so accommodating, flexible, kind-hearted, and communicative.Thank you so much for everything you have done, Amber, Nicole, and the entire CGPH staff, for making our dream wedding our reality.
Alice de Crom: A beautiful venue! As a wedding vendor it’s one of my favourite spots in the city!
arnel sulit: Accept wedding occasion. Good place. Plants are always green.

Penthouse Event & Business Suite: what do users think?
Patrick Leung: Most beautiful place roof top i seen
Simon W.: Excellent space, friendly staff, and beautiful views of downtown. Perfect for the business event we hosted!
Edward Zhang: Awesome experience beautiful patio. Sunset is extravagant five stars.
Magalie R-Bazinet: The Penthouse is one of the most gorgeous venue in town. Love it there! 💝
Mahbod Tatari: Had a great night at Penthouse Event. Very professional service. I’m super happy that I could throw my Engagement Party at this amazing place. Rose and Dee are both very professional on what they’re doing and they made everything going smooth on my special night. I would definitely recommend this amazing place.
Luis Aello: Venue: 10/10Service: 10/10Hostess: 100/10Amazing staff, went better than I expected.Highly recommended
Ryan & Shalyne Bond: We hosted our 10th anniversary party here and enjoyed the location and staff so much, we booked and hosted my parents 50th anniversary party 6 months later! We appreciated their flexibility and how we could to tailor the event to what we wanted. For the first party we brought and barbecued our own food. The staff offered and used their serving utensils and dishes. For the second party we used their catering and the food was delicious.For the first party we had our own DJ. For the second party we used a playlist, and we also had a zoom call using their A/V system. We also really appreciated being able to bring our own alcohol to have available what our guests wanted to drink, and to keep costs down.My parents arrived very early (much earlier than the party start time) yet were welcomed beautifully. They had wheelchair accommodation which was an important feature that we needed. There was ample street parking and some of our guests used the Skytrain which they said was easy.Can’t say enough about how awesome the staff were. From the guest check-in downstairs to the bartender to the hosts, everyone was friendly and so helpful. It was a real treat not to lift a finger or have to monitor everything. We really were able to just enjoy ourselves as guests. All our needs were met!
Julie Zhu: AWESOME experience!! Definitely recommended. Rose helped coordinate the event with me and it was a great time. Everyone at the party had an unforgettable experience! Plan your next big party here!
Romer Aquino: I did like the space for it, good enough to fit 30 guests dining. What I really liked was the rooftop views and the fire heater they had outside. Staff was very helpful and always active throughout the event. The floors were very sticky, good thing the music was on so you couldn't hear everyone's shoes.
Victoria Chomicki: They were in all the details for our Christmas Staff Party. The place had Christmas decorations which was a nice touch and all the requests we made were there the night of the event.Super nice and helpful staff and the venue also had a terrace with seatings, some blankets, heating and lights!Would definitely choose this venue again!
sogol zaimi: I had my 40th birthday here and everything was beyond my expectations. Everything turned out fabulous from decor, food, service and drinks. The venue itself is gorgeous, perfect for bday, engagement, baby or bridal showers. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating. All the guest were well taken care of. Thank you for a memorable night! Will be back again!
Nojan Abrary: We hosted a birthday celebration at this venue and it was an amazing experience. Our guests loved the venue and everyone had a great time. The location and the VIEWS from the patio are unbelievable. We worked with Rose who was a consummate professional from the very start, during the event and final clean up. Her involvement took away a lot of the concerns of “did we forget anything”. All in all I highly recommend this venue for a special celebration!
Cathy Cena: We had my son's 30th birthday here and it was exquisite! The staff was awesome to work with - Rose was fantastic as was the owner. Everything ran smoothly and it could not have been a better day. If you are looking for a rooftop experience and event this is the place to be.
anonymouse kitchen: This venue is awesome, staff is very professional and preparation is top notch. Would recommend to anyone. Our guest love it.
sukhi sidhu: First of all BIG thanks to ROSE and Dee for organizing my wedding reception. Staff was friendly. All members of management and staff at penthouse were great at communication. I would definitely book this venue for my future events. Venue has beautiful setup outside & inside such as sofas, tables, chairs, centre pieces and so many other decor pieces to add on to tables.I would recommended this place for all types of events.Great view and lights as well.
Mona Shirkhani: It was amazing place for your big day .everything decorated so beautiful and modern special lighting at night. I love rose who is the manager of this wonderful place. She is so kind, patient and responsible about her job. I recommend u 1000 times 😊 Literally they made me so satisfied.
Sandeep Jain: It was a wonderful experience to have my close friend’s celebrations at Terminal Ave penthouse on August 2nd where I was the host .The decor was great & the staff service was impeccable. I would especially like to thank Ms Rose - the event Manager who was available every time I had a question before the event and she handled the event so well that I cannot thank her enough and I wish I could have given 7 stars here - I will highly recommend this place for small to moderate gatherings of 40-60 people
Bao Tu: Beautifully set venue with even better staff! We've hosted multiple event gatherings here and this venue always has what it takes to make those evenings the most special! This venue has a wonderful outdoor view of the Vancity skyline as well as interior amenities to keep your guest continually entertained. Rose and her staff always go above and beyond to keep all of the guests happy and they are always so pleasant to deal with. Looking forward to booking again.
Sarah O'Brien: We had our wedding here Aug 6/22 and it could not have been more perfect! All our guests loved the venue. The views, the decor, the large plants, the outdoor lighting, all created a very magical vibe.Then there's the staff! Wow!!! Every single person was so lovely, friendly & professional. I was able to just enjoy the day while they took care of everything around me.This team knows what they are doing and you will be in good hands. We definitely recommend!!!!
Robert Craig: Hosted a very successful summer wedding at this venue. Very impressed with not only the venue but the attentive and supportive staff.They communicated extremely well and helped provide an amazing wedding experience at sunset complete with catering and set up. I couldn't be happier. I would 100% recommend this venue and will likely book here for birthdays in the future.
Rashminder Kaur Sandhu: This is an excellent venue located near science world. You will have access to a beautiful view both indoors and outdoors. Its definitely more worth than the price you pay. The whole team was very helpful and was available for assistance at any time. They went out of the way to help set up my decorations even though they didn’t have too. If I didn’t have the team to help me with my arrangements, I wouldn’t have been able to set up the baby shower on time like the way I had envisioned. You will have access to bar tender, servers, helpers, table decor, cutlery, and catering along with the venue access. Make sure you book with them because it will definitely be worth it. Again I would like to thank Dee and Rose for their wonderful service and support. I really appreciate it!!! Can’t wait to do another event at this wonderful place ☺️

The Permanent Library Limited: what do users think?
Jonathan Brower: This place is beautiful and ornate. Add some cool lighting and music (and natural wine tastings) and it turns into a lively party spot.
Estela Hsu: Breathtaking beautiful venue with great lighting and service.It’s redecorating from a bank long time before.
M Z: Great event venue !
Rhea D: It was an incredible space for an event. Absolutely beautiful.
Gaëtan Perrault: This is an old bank now converted to an event space and home for Internet Archive Canada. It's now "The Permanent Library" instead of "BC Permanent & Loan Company".It's still an event space and it's incredibly lovely and classy. Not just the old architecture, but lovely stained glass and top notch tiling everywhere. Even the restrooms are fancy.
Philipp Kundert: Very nice space for an event
L K: Nice venue
Sam Singla: A perfect venue for anything. I have been here twice and i am already in love with the place.. Recommend 5/5Really helpful staffA great view of the Harbour Centre Vancouver.You will find a cannabis 🌿🌿dispensary on the corner.A decent size of screen with a projector 📽️
Christine Keay: Photo credit: Page and Holmes
Christina Steinert: A beautiful building. I attended a wedding there. The staff and the service was great.
Alexander jose Franco perez: El permanent es un bonito lugar y también muy famoso en la serie de Riverdale conocida como el Pembroke dónde vivía la familia lodge
Mickael Maddison: The Permanent is a great location for business and social events and the uniqueness is great for filming too.
Vineet Singh: Clean space but may be a bit small. Parking can be tricky and adjacent area is a bit deprived.
Danielle Lowe: The Permanent participated in an instagram contest where they were offering a specified amount of time at the venue for a wedding. They received a great deal of exposure from participating in this contest.My sister won the wedding package, and paid for extra time at the venue for dinner and reception which was not part of the package. Then The Permanent cancelled my sister’s wedding with eleven days notice because they decided to begin renovations early.They received advertisement from this contest without honouring their commitment. They have put my sister and the other businesses who participated in the contest in a horrible situation. As you can imagine it is very difficult to find a new venue on such short notice, especially with the recent boom in weddings.All creative aspects of the wedding (dresses, decorations, etc.) were centred around the expectation that The Permanent would be the venue. Rather than looking forward to their wedding, the couple is scrambling at the last minute to find a new location.It is shameful the owners felt it was acceptable to cancel the venue on such short notice. Guests have booked reservations and flights according the the year+ plan of this event being held at the permanent. Caterers, florists, and other services have already been organized for this wedding. This selfish decision impacts many more people than just the couple.I would not recommend booking your wedding at a venue that is willing to leave you high and dry so close to your big moment. They didn’t even offer an alternative.
Brittany Andrejcin: We were due to fly in for a wedding booked at The Permanent Library from out of Province. Given this, we have flights and accommodation booked.Our friends had won a wedding package that included the Permanent as the venue, but they paid for extra time for dinner and the reception.They were contacted a month prior from the venue telling them they were raising the agreed upon rates, then CANCELLED their wedding venue 11 days before the event. After the unfortunate need to rebook due to the pandemic, what a shame to finally have a date to look forward to only to have it cancelled so last minute and have to scramble to find a new venue when everywhere is so booked up given the long hiatus the wedding industry had to take in 2020/2021.The fallout of this affects everyone, including guests that are now at risk of losing deposits and amounts paid on flights and accommodation if a new venue is unable to be secured in time. I really hope all money paid by our friends for the venue is fully returned. I noticed another guest of the wedding also left a review where the owner said nothing was paid. This is inaccurate and doesn't take into account the amount paid for the extra dinner time and reception. Beyond this, to have to scramble for venue with so little time before their date is a result of a terrible decision made by the Permanent.
Alexandra Lowe: I wish I could give 0 stars.This venue cancelled my sisters wedding with ten days notice. She has had the wedding booked for over a YEAR. Not only did the venue reach out to her to increase the hourly rate a month ago - after having the wedding booked for over a year. They then decided to do renovations to the building earlier than they had planned due to getting a building permit sooner than they'd hoped. So rather than do the renovations when they were planned, they cancelled all of the weddings planned up till their planned renovation date.DONT BOOK WITH THIS VENUE. Firstly, you should feel confident your venue will honor the agreed upon price, which this venue does not. Secondly, you should feel confident your venue will not cancel on you, where The Permanent will.Think about the challenges scrambling to book a wedding venue with ten days notice, then think about how you should choose a venue that is NOT The Permanent.
Shaun Rowsell: This wedding venue literally cancelled my friend’s wedding within ELEVEN days. Fifty people have been invited; meaning travel plans, accommodation, etc and now have to be informed that there will be no wedding to attend. This is the least professional and compassionate thing I have ever witnessed from a business. What was supposed to be the most special day of two people’s lives is now a stressful mess. Their reasoning? Renovations. Eleven days notice for random renovations. They should be ashamed of the way this has been handled and I would strongly advise anyone looking to book a wedding to steer clear of a venue who can cancel within eleven days. And keep in mind this is just their wedding - all others (including sooner and later weddings) have been spontaneously cancelled as well.
Emily León: I really did not know what this publication was about but I already saw that then I am going to give them 5 stars
Christine Richardson & Mack Keay: We recently got married at The Permanent. When going back and forth on a where to get married; Regina or Vancouver, we came across this venue. It is absolutely stunning; from the show stopping stain glass ceiling, tile work on the floor, to the features around the entire space.We got married during covid times and had to change our wedding plans a lot. We were fortunate to sneak it in while the guidelines were still 50. I was worried that the space would be too small downsizing from a 130 person to 45 but it wasn't! The space was filled beautifully and never once did I feel like the space felt empty.A lot of our guests commented on how amazing the space was and I couldn't agree more!
Jay Cree: Really cool venue. I'm glad my relative chose it for his wedding. It always great to see that there are people in our city still interested in preserving Vancouver's history. So many fascinating details throughout the venue.
angela b: So beautiful!!!!!

John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse: what do users think?
Oarrie Oliver: Great place for a wedding
Danny Grant: Stunning view of the mountains and skyline. A great venue for a wedding
Dëmin Photography (Wedding Photographer): I've had the pleasure of photographing several weddings at this breathtaking venue. The waterfront views are simply stunning, with the added bonus of sunsets, boats, and planes taking off in the background, providing endless opportunities for capturing great shots. The staff were consistently friendly and accommodating, making my job much easier. I can't wait for the opportunity to work there again!
saif rangwala: What a location!
Evelyn Kansy: Beautiful venue for holding events.
Mandeep Bhatti: Shot an engagement at this venue last week. The venue itself was beautiful. The scenic exterior is a bonus.
J C: Had the most memorable and beautiful ceremony & reception at the UBC Boathouse. Unique floating facility with fantastic water backdrop and attentive staff. Everything ran so smoothly and we had the most amazing day/night. Don't hesitate to book this venue!
Jashan Deol: Ubc boat house is one of my best place for parties, i have attended many events here and in all the events this place adds up more beauty and vibe for guests.View of cityscape looks mesmerizing from this place, evening parties are always more beautiful.A walkway from parking to entrance is another beautiful spot which take away everyone’s attention.We had decorated it with crafty and balloons for our events and it always worked out great.This place is also great for evening or morning time photoshoot. Sunset from this place looks very beautiful.I will add more photos later on to show the beauty of place.Also i forget to mention staff at ubc boathouse is very helpful and well managed.
Marijana Busch [Pavlovic]: John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse was an absolutely gorgeous venue for our September wedding. Shivani and the UBC boathouse team were great with organization and communication.
Charles Guo: Great venue for summer wedding ceremonies or other celebrations. On-site or their preferred caterers were well known in Richmond and would probably have been used regardless of their suggestions. Another plug for boywithaknife for being very accommodating.
J Chen: Came here for a friend's wedding and the place was gorgeous. All the staff were super friendly and helpful (I had a stroller and they carried it up the stairs for me so I didn't have to walk up and around two ramps).
Amanda Lade: We used the boathouse for our wedding ceremony and reception. It was such a beautiful space. The staff were super helpful and we got so many compliments on how beautiful the venue is. It’s also nice to have a plan B option for if it rains. Also the sunsets are GORGEOUS!! Great venue if you are looking for a late night as you can stay till 2:00!
Kris LeBerg: Family wedding. Absolutely gorgeous venue right on the river
Kimber Wolf: Beautiful sunsets
Rob Ellis: This is a beautiful venue right on the river. The sunsets here are exceptional. Unfortunately it is situated right under YVR flight path.
freyja hewlett: A beautiful venue, the weather was amazing! We managed to find it very easily when driving from our hotel, but someone else at the event mentioned it took them 45 minutes to get there from the Raddison (a 3minute drive). The weather was amazing though! It was also such an easy drive back to our hotel, not sure about the friends that mentioned it took them 45 minutes, but there were no issues with my journey. Maybe they needed to update their garmin, I told him he could probably get one for a good price at Costco, I’ve seen some really good ones there recently! Still can’t get over the amazing weather at this venue, highly recommend if you’re looking for a sunny event in the future!
Tanaya Shaw: The perfect venue for our wedding day! Nothing but great things to say about this incredible place. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our venue.
Hubert Courteau-Godmaire: Nice rowing conditions this morning
Raq: The staff here were so helpful and understanding when it came to wedding planning. Had our wedding here in April and we had SOOO many good comments in regards to the venue. Also did our photoshoot here and the pictures turned out ridiculously beautiful (Saved time going elsewhere). A hidden gem for Richmond with an excellent view. Your guest will honestly be blown away. Definitely worth it!
Alex Yip (Sanity): Great venue for a wedding. Except when you have to light candles because of the wind, lol.
Inderjit Sidhu: Jaikratsidhu

Pacific Yacht Charters + PYC Catering: what do users think?
Cinda Cheung: We had a boat cruise to celebrate our company anniversary. Molly was our event planner. I had worked with Molly for many years for past events. I know my event will be well executed when Molly is in charge. The PYC Catering team did an amazing job in delivery delicious food and attentive service. This event created significant memory for all our employees.
Suzanne Bidinost: I highly recommend this for corporate or social events. Beautiful interior with topnotch food and service !
Tess Naylor: Carisa and the team were fantastic! They were extremely flexible, professional and the food and drinks were amazing. By far the best in the business. Thanks for everything!
Troy Tyrell: Nice breakfast and old friends
Kathy Miller: PYC Catering recently catered a small in-home office dinner for us. Molly was fantastic with getting everything arranged and ordered, and the night of the event, the staff were phenomenal. Everyone had a wonderful time!
Ron Wosk: I recently hosted 63 people with Pacific Yacht Charters for my wife's 60th Birthday. Carisa organized the event and ensured everything was the way we wanted it. The ship was clean and arranged beautifully. The food was excellent and all special dietary requests were accommodated. I was most impressed with the staff who were friendly and took wonderful care of our guests. I honestly have nothing negative to say, and coming from me, that says a lot.
Jonathan Wildman: I had the pleasurer of working with Pacific Yacht Charters for a staff event for our Vancouver office and our organization's Senior Management Team. Carisa, their Senior Event Planner was fantastic to work with as she helped us up to the day of our event. On the day of, words can't express how much our team enjoyed themselves. The yacht, staff and experience was first class and I couldn't have been happier of how our event tuned out. Thank you PYC Team!! You all are fantastic and I look forward to working with you again!
Joan Compton: PYC catered my mother's 90th birthday party and I can't say enough about how wonderful they were! Despite circumstances beyond their control, they rolled with this setback and provided delicious food and drinks. The staff were so friendly and professional. We can't say enough about how great they were. Thank you all so much for a wonderful party! We would definitely recommend them.
Martín Medeiros: Molly and her crew were amazing and delivered a great service during our networking evening. Everyone was very professional, committed, and warm. They make a great team! Molly helped us from minute zero to outline the event providing suggestions, and the result was flawless. Everything; the bread baskets, the charcuterie, and the appetizers where delicious and laid out beautifully. Wine and drinks were of a great selection. Setup and takedown happened promptly, and smoothly. Most importantly, we got compliments from the guests during the course of the evening. Thanks, and for sure we will have you top of mind for our next event.
Valeria Kolesova: Molly (the coordinator) and the crew were absolutely amazing helping us provide an outstanding experience at the inaugural event for early-career faculty in translational medicine at UBC. The service was professional and beyond prompt, the team was a delight to deal with. We used PYC services for breakfast, refreshments and a reception with cocktails - and PYC was on top of it in terms of timing, working with us to navigate the venue etc. Molly provided support leading up to the event so we knew that our catering was in great responsible hands. Would not hesitate to contract PYC again for taking such great care of our catering needs!
Jerilyn Pagdanganan: I just booked catering services on my 50th birthday from Molly and it was excellent service. She was very patient and helpful on my orders. The food was delivered by the chef to make sure that the food was delivered fresh and give me instructions to warm the food. All my guests was happy and love the food. I highly recommended Pacific Yacht Charters catering services.
Nick Gazdag: Great event space and catering
Shelby Irvine: Awesome crew and yacht
Jennifer Tiede: I found Pacific Yacht Catering online and worked with Molly, I received excellent service from Molly. She listened to what I wanted even though at the time I did not have all the details worked out yet and set me up with an appropriate menu. She accommodated the added guest a few times for my mom's memorial service. The food was excellent, and received great reviews from a number of our guest. I choose PYC over a number of other caterers as she did not bombard with me a number of questions I was not able to answer at the time because we did not have the details worked out yet. I would highly recommend PYC and would happily use them again.
leesa tran: Had attended a yacht party the past week and was quite disappointed with the person who was in charge of hosting everything. Right as my party arrived onto the boat, we were not properly greeted nor did anyone introduce who they were. After 15 minutes of us setting up, that's when the person in charge decided to introduce herself to us.Besides the unfriendly service, I thought that the decorations that they had set up was nice and the food was pretty decent considering it was food that had to be prep in advance.
Mani Ebrahimi: I hosted an event with Pacific Yacht Charters with 52 guests on board. The entire process from the initial planning to the day of the event was executed perfectly. The staff and crew were all professional and great to interact with and my guests and I had a great time!
Carrie Marshall: The Father's Day picnic basket that PYC Catering made for our family yesterday was absolutely amazing. The food was incredible, easy instructions, beautiful presentation and every picnic detail was taken care of. All the staff involved was super friendly and helpful. This is a Father's Day that I will remember forever with my Dad because PYC Catering made it that much more special!
Bruce Hogg: I was recently looking for a great way to show my appreciation for my team members’ hard work. Not wanting to be gimmicky with chocolates or lotto cards, I decided to provide a nice luncheon. In reviewing upscale catering companies (tough these days to find quality in COVID times) I came across PYC. My contact when calling in was their events director “Molly” who was a perfect fit for us. She had just the right balance of friendliness and efficiency. She recognized that I needed efficiency but also wanted time to review menu items etc. She reviewed it all with me and made valuable selection ideas to ensure selections were appropriate for my team members and also made certain that we had everything we needed. Upon delivery day, we were all happily surprised by the quality of the lunches. Most our selections were from the Poke Bowl and Buddha Bowl menu offerings and everyone was pleased by the quality and freshness of the individual ingredients that accompanied each bowl. The top level presentation of each bowl was just as if we were sitting right in a restaurant. Hats off to the chef and staff for this level of quality food and presentation. Molly ensured that a very good experience was had by all of us! When done again, for catering a lunch for my team or just for me and friends, PYC is now top of my list.
Kim Schierbeck: We ordered a lunch from PYC Catering, one tuna, one salmon bowl! The fish was so fresh, the flavor was amazing! Will defiantly order again.
lizandbrad atchison: Several families in our neighbourhood did a group order of Poke and Buddha bowls on Friday. It was a refreshing delicious change from cooking or getting the same old take-out! We all really enjoyed the food and since it was so easy, we will definitely organize another order with a bigger group of friends in the near future. We found it to be a fun way to connect with friends but still stay apart during Covid. Thank you so much!
Steve Kish: I treated my staff to an appreciation lunch catered by PYC Catering. My staff and I loved the food. Modern flavours were on point, as was presentation and packaging. Accommodations for sensitivities were appreciated. Molly made it so easy to plan and deliver this lunch to my team, I’ll be using PYC Catering again.
