Advantages: - Beautiful brick wall, aesthetically appealing furniture (a variety as well), texture contrast from floor to ceiling, clear style (rustic + modern). - Ceiling height and beams allow for lights and diffusers to be mounted high above talent, without any stands. Plugs available on top of the beams, so no extension chords required to mount lights up high (ladder available). - Space enough to remove furniture from shots and increase minimal look. - Plenty of natural light for varying needs Challenges: - The narrow room makes shooting from side-to-side challenging, as it makes background separation more difficult to achieve without extremely shallow DoF (even with a 2.8 35mm on a FF sensor). - The windows on the street side are not centered on the wall, which can disrupt symmetry. - Windows are not very sound proof, I would suggest sound-proof inserts for better audio performance. - Skylight is lets in natural light of course, but you may (as I had to) have to block it off with a sheet across the ceiling beams for continuity sake. Overall: - Excellent space for many uses, plenty of variety in one room, great price, beautiful location in town. Highly recommend!

This room is centrally located to lots of eateries in Byward Market. The room itself is bright and spacious even with 18 of us in the room. Eric was extremely helpful and an attentive host.

Eric was a wonderful host and excellent at keeping me informed about the plan. We had a productive working session at this location. The location and the room is charming however, I would suggest that small tweaks be made to improve the overall amenities in the space. The bathrooms did not look very clean (might be the age of the building) however, the floors, doors etc. need a good scrub.

Eric was really easy to work with and very helpful when we had to make some changes to scheduling. I would highly recommend working with Eric if you're looking for a great offsite meeting space in the heart of the market.

About Ottawa

Ottawa is the capital of Canada sharing a border with Quebec in southeast Ontario. The Ottawa River is the provincial border between Ontario and Quebec. The government buildings and the seat of the Canadian government lie in Ottawa on the river’s south side. Gatineau, Quebec, lies immediately across the Ottawa River, and these two cities are known as the National Capitol Region, the 4th largest metropolitan area in Canada with 1.5 million people.

The Algonquin tribe named Ottawa, meaning “to trade,” because it was the major trading hub between the tribes of the First Nations. The Ottawa and the Gatineau Rivers were the favored trade routes. The arrival of the French trappers and traders expanded the trade route to other European settlers to the south in the US colonies and other remote tribes within the interior.

With the seat of government, the clustering of universities and provincial colleges, and the diversity of the economy into high-tech, the residents of Ottawa are known as the most educated in all of Canada. The high-tech start-up companies gave Ottawa the moniker of Silicon Valley North.

The building of the extensive locks and canal systems over time made it possible for the trade routes to be uninterrupted travel from the Atlantic to the Great Lakes. Ottawa has stayed true to its trade history with the present-day definition of commerce and service.

Party Options in Ottawa

The spaces offered by the host owners range from specialty commercial spaces to rooms of clear span construction and private residences. Some of the specialty spaces may have certain services, such as catering, furnishings, and a/v, pre-packaged and provided by preferred vendors. The prices will be based upon the number of guests without the opportunity to bid.

  • Party Planning
    If the party location does not fall under the guise of pre-packaged services, then the services of a professional party planner will coordinate the décor, furnishings, and catering. The planner will work with the host client to understand the theme of the party and the budget from which to work. The occasion for the party will be communicated through the choice of venue and the set-up.

  • Catering
    The catering services brought to a party are different than the services brought to an event. The food options need to meld with the occasion and the style of the celebration. The tone of the party will be set through the service and menu. The caterers will need an understanding of not only the theme but the client’s expectations of the attendees’ experience.

  • Permitting
    Generally, a party hosting less than 100 guests will not be required to pull a permit. However, if the party is held on property owned or controlled by a quasi- or governmental department, like the National Capitol Commission, then a permit is necessary for the venue.

Party Company Options in Ottawa

Ottawa has a diverse economy in government and the private sectors of high-tech, education, and healthcare. These industry types have a byproduct of events and parties needing the support of planners, caterers, photographers, and the like. The vendors and contractors supporting the event industry are local to the Ottawa region with experience in working with clients from the public and the private sides of the business.

  • Bree’s Events
    Bree’s Events is sponsored by Best in Ottawa and has been nominated for many awards in the party planning industry through votes by peers and clients. Bree’s niche in life celebrations.

The images created by JVL can be staged, natural, and a combination of these sets.

Pros and Cons of a Party in Ottawa

As with all projects, there will be pros and cons to recognize and consider. For a well-rounded decision, it will be necessary to consider all facets of the project in relation to the whole. Be sure you know all the advantages and disadvantages of a party in Ottawa before packing your bags.

Advantages

  • Lifestyles
    Ottawa ranks 3rd in Canada as to qualify of life and 19th worldwide. The salaries commensurate with the economic base require a certain lifestyle. Ottawa meets and supports these expectations.

  • Local Support of Industry
    With the moniker of Silicon Valley North, the clustering of secondary education facilities, and the seat of government, social entertainment is prevalent. The choice of vendors providing ancillary services and the offerings by host owners are a testament to local support.

  • Great summers
    The seasons in Ottawa are distinct. On average, there are 11 days in the summer when the temperature is over 85°F. There are, on average, 17 days in the winter when the temperature is below 0°F. Any variation in the weather conditions occurs in the spring and fall when large swings in temperature and air current are experienced.

Disadvantages

  • Permitting
    If early in the planning stages it is determined that the party will need some type of permit, then it is best to consider all aspects of the party that may trigger a permit. If the party hosts more than 100 attendees or is considered a fundraiser, then a permit is required.

  • Earthquakes
    Western Quebec has a seismic zone in which Ottawa is located. This relatively dormant zone has experienced several earthquakes over the past decade, and these quakes have averaged 4.8 on the Richter scale.

  • Cold winters
    It will take ice skates and sleds to maneuver through the city when the canals and rivers completely freeze and when the bridges and roads are closed to traffic. The locals will not be homebound as life carries on; although, the short-term visitor may be at a standstill.
