The Cascade Room
2616 Main Street
A modern take on the classic UK pub, The Cascade Room comfortably accommodates groups of 20 to 90 people with group menus that range from canapés to multi-course family-style dinners. Your crowd can explore the cocktail list along with such appetizers as beef tenderloin carpaccio crostini, local oysters on the half shell and almond-crusted Spanish lamb meatballs, or sit down to a few well-priced bottles of wine and Moroccan spiced fritters, roasted strip loin and seasonal crème brûlée.
Everyone’s invited to Cascade Room’s Tree-Trimming Party on Tuesday, Dec. 1st. Your $45 ticket, purchased in advance due to limited seating, provides access to assorted canapés, two different kinds of bottomless punch-bowls and the fun of decorating numerous trees. Gather a few co-workers or friends for this event, which promises prizes for the “best holiday cheer” (open to interpretation). Book your spot at xmastreetrimming.eventbrite.ca
