Welcome to Lago, a downtown, waterfront location perfect for hosting your family and loved ones. We love weddings and are genuinely excited to host them. Leaving no detail to chance, we work closely with you to create the wedding of your dreams.
Centrally located on Queen Elizabeth Driveway and just steps away from the Dominion Arboretum and Botanical Garden at the Central Experimental Farm, Lago boasts panoramic water views of Dow’s Lake in Canada’s capital! Our two story venue is a unique, modern, open concept event space.
Enjoy our patio that is perfect for an outdoor cocktail hour and move inside for an resplendent meal. From elegant receptions to intimate dinners, Lago offers incredible food and extraordinary service for weddings of every size and every season – including winter weddings. And we offer flexible pricing options for off-peak dates!
Are you looking for a modern setting for a smaller wedding or an expansive space for a large party? Lago can provide either! We do not operate on a flat fee or all-in package basis but rather allow each couple to select the elements of a wedding that work best for them in conjunction with a declining room fee.
Let us help you create a beautiful beginning to this next chapter of your love story.
Our restaurant on the water can be booked for private functions and can accommodate over 250 seated guests for dining and 440 for cocktails with additional seasonal seating for guests on our wraparound patio. At over 7,000 square feet, this blank canvas can be transfigured into multiple countless configurations.
The Vista Room can host up to 110 seated guests or 220 guests for cocktails with additional seasonal seating for 70 guests on its patio. The breathtaking views from the second floor will perfectly complement your stylish decor.
Each wedding reception includes:
Round guest tables or banquet seating (where possible)
White table linens
Choice of black or white napkins
Modern dinnerware, stemware and flatware
Set up and take away of your decor by our banquet team
