The ornate woodwork takes our breath away. The Westside Grand is our go-to site for weddings. This is the venue where place cards in beautiful italic script grace the tables and flowers tastefully adorn the room. Peek inside on a weekday evening and you’ll likely see tuxedos and cocktail dresses. This venue also has a proven track record of hosting business receptions. The Kitsilano Chamber of Commerce welcomed politicians at the venue and the Vancouver Board of Trade held a sold-out members’ reception at the Westside Grand.

Welcome your guests in the foyer and watch them admire the intricate ironwork and vaulted ceilings. Yes, we do think calling this venue ‘lavish’ would be accurate. Offer them chilled wine from the venue’s cooler. Watch the conversation flow as your guests enjoy Vancouver’s waterfront from the venue’s two balconies. Then congratulate yourself on your event planning success.
