About The View on Lonsdale

The View on Lonsdale is a banquet hall wedding venue located in North Vancouver, British Columbia. This environmentally friendly, contemporary, and versatile property boasts a myriad of alluring and quirky features which make it a truly distinctive place to host a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Featuring several levels, the top floor affords the couple and their guests with panoramic views of the city as well as the Pacific Ocean.

Facilities and Capacity

From the outside, this location catches the eye with its modern design and stylish architecture. Featuring glass, recycled wood, and elements of metal, it is a multifaceted building that combines numerous materials for a unique look. Upon entry, everyone is greeted by an inviting lobby space which would be an ideal place to enjoy a cocktail hour. What’s more, the Gordon Smith Gallery makes for a suitable place to mix and mingle surrounded by artistry and sophistication. For the all-important ceremony, an onsite park provides a charming area where the couple can say “I do” and hand each other their special rings. Underneath the stone archway, the to-be-weds can stand as their guests share the special moment. After the milestone moment has taken place and the couple has become newlyweds, the wedding party can make their way to celebrate the reception.

Undoubtedly, the fifth floor is the venue’s pièce de résistance as it is where the partying and revelries can take place. A multifaceted event area, it provides breathtaking views of different sceneryocean, mountains, and sky.

    The View is the BEST!

    Stunning views, amazing staff, fantastic food, exceptional professionalism, and not enough wonderful adjectives to describe how the whole event turned out. Huge thank you to Allison for making it all so easy to organize, for providing support and ideas and doing so much of the planning on our behalf.

    Would do it all again in a heartbeat!

    xoxo,
    Lena and Peter

    Allison, The View and Forage Caterinf were wonderful! Allison was positive, helpful and generous with her time. She was very responsive during the planning process and always willing to help.
    In addition, during the set up and the event the entire Forage Catering team was fantastic. All of the staff truly went above and beyond. Everyone seemed to really care about the event, was professional, kind, helpful and friendly. The venue is great, the food was amazing, the crew was awesome and we could not have asked for anything different for our wedding. Highly recommended!!

    I loved our wedding at the View. We had our ceremony on the patio overlooking the city of Vancouver and the reception inside. The View really does live up to it's name. They were great with letting up set up the day before and picking items up in the loading bay at a later day after the wedding.
