Louis Gervais Fine Foods Bistro for the Budget Bride

Louis Gervais Fine Foods and Catering - photo by Jasalyn Thorne Photography I featured Louis Gervais Fine Foods and Catering a couple of months ago and I found out that their bistro can also be rented for private functions… And it’s quite affordable!

Their modern event space is best for intimate gatherings, 50 for seated dinner, 100 for cocktail reception. They have large floor to ceiling windows that overlook their garden patio. They also have an open concept kitchen that allows for an interactive component, if desired. This space is free of rental charge for the first 5 hours once a minimum food and beverage spend is met. For events occurring between Monday and Thursday, the minimum spend is $1,500. On weekends (Friday to Sunday) and holidays, the minimums increase to $2,500. As you can see they are quite low… A bonus for budget brides everywhere. If you want to rent the venue for longer than 5 hours, it will cost an additional $100/hr. With a venue booking, clients will have the space between 4pm and 1am daily, as well as the following:

  • 12 marble top bistro tables
  • 44 wrought iron bistro chairs
  • 10 wrought iron patio tables
  • 5 patio umbrellas
  • use of commercial espresso machine
  • use of commercial kitchen facilities
  • surround sound system with mp3 players that can be attached to play the music of your choice
  • ample parking and no neighbours

Furniture can be removed if you don’t need it. If you need to get into the space earlier, they may be able to accommodate, depending on if the bistro is being used before your event. There will be an hourly staff rate for service and cleanup which will be discussed and added onto the quote. The bistro has a great location and is away from busy areas. The North Shore sea wall is walking distance from the bistro. On a gorgeous day, you’ll enjoy beautiful views of Burrard Inlet and downtown Vancouver. As for restrictions, no amplified music as appreciated and of course, no outside food and beverage (but wedding cakes are ok).
