I hosted a cocktail reception on their mezzanine with food and drink for about 30 people. Food was plentiful and delicious and the space was cozy and lovely decorated with tea lights and comfortable seating. Would highly recommend to anyone.

The Revel Room is in the Gastown district so it could easily be overtly touristy. But it wasn't. It's a small place on a side street with live music. It happened to be their ninth anniversary so they had live music all day. And a...More

Go here. Amazing ambience. Fantastic staff. Your every need is taken care of. Dennis the manager (owner?) is amazing. Seriously go here. The food is incredible. Chicken bites will make you come back again and again.
