Winner: Venue 308

Venue 308 opened in October 2019 in the Louise Block heritage building in Victoria Park. Approximately 5,000 square feet, the space features original brick walls and lots of natural light, and can host 274 people across two floors. On the upper floor there is an open space for a ceremony or reception, a prep kitchen and The Grace Lounge, a bridal party prep space with a makeup desk and chairs. On the lower floor is The Walter Lounge, a cozy, speakeasy-style room ideal for the groom and his cohort to relax and get ready. Co-founder Bretton Grassie says that Venue 308 is a great choice for couples looking for a space that is photogenic from all angles, with a family-run staff that is hands-on in the event process. “Really, the role that we’ve taken on is just being there for people,” she says. —T.A.
