Any thoughts or previous spots you bees may have used for a wedding rehearsal dinner? Looking to host 24 people for a sitdown dinner, but would also like to host a stand up cocktail type thing for family and Out of Town guests after the dinner. Must be downtown, or very central. Any thoughts bees?

@amRN: If you don’t get the information you need from the Bees, check your local Chowhounds Board. Do a search first to be respectful, then post an inquiry of you don’t find what you need.
also try Ottawa Foodies

@amRN: I’m looking for essentially the same thing, though I haven’t done too much research into it at this point. Ones that seem like they might be able to accomodate this type of thing are Side Door, Courtyard, and Social. As I said, I haven’t gotten much beyond brainstorming and taking looks at websites for info, but it’s somewhere to start! I’d be interested in what you find!

@amRN: If you’re not set on having the cocktail hour in the same spot, Vittoria Trattoria and Play have private or semi-private rooms (in addition to the ones I listed above).

@amRN: Have you tried the Courtyard in the market? I rememeber seeing their booth at a wedding show and it seemed like it may be what you’re looking for.

Table 40 at Fraser Cafe is beyond fantastic. Private events and an adjacent resto/bar for Out of Town guests. My favourite place in Ottawa and 5 min from the Byward Market.
