    Urban well looks cool - I think Fi and I will be taking cooking classes there. How many ppl can they accommodate for a wedding though? the room looks small.
    Urban element or urban well? Urban well is that pub on Laurier by ottawa U, but urban element looks like they could accomodate a large enough group....it held firetrucks at one point after all...I guess it depends how many people you were planning on invititing to AHR

      ya sorry Urban Element. We had our stag at urban well so I'm getting a bit mixed up. Just by looking the pics it didn't look that big but I might not be looking at the pic where they hold the actual weddings.

      That new restaurant looks AMAZING - love it (dows lake) Thanks for sharing..I think this will be our 4 yr anniv dinner spot :)

        I just sent off an email to my wedding coordinator friend who works with Urban Element. I'll let you know what max capacity is.

                I know that a few restaurants downtown have 'party' rooms that aren't that obvious. You have to basically ask around.

                What about Kinki? Their website says that they have capacity for up to 120 people upstairs. Their menu is cool too.

                I don't know what your budget is.

                  The Blue Cactus Bar & Grill seems like it would be great for a cocktail reception.
                  They do parties of up to 250 people.

                  (Please contact Laura at 613-241-7061 for additional information)
                  Or you can reserve their Mezzanine (up to 100 people)

                      Ummm...funny story, I lay down to take a nap on Friday night after work and slept through the tasting
                      I did hear from someone that the reviews weren't great, but I think we'll just go there for dinner one night instead to see for ourselves. If anyone heads there first, please post your opinion though! I'd love to hear about it!
