Client Testimonials

The whole experience was seamless. The food and cake were delicious. The bartender was excellent and all of the staff were friendly and totally on top of things. Communication leading up to the event was clear and we received timely responses to emails. During the event, everything went smoothly and, other than receiving warm congratulations from the staff, we were hardly aware anything happening behind the scenes because it all went so smoothly. It was wonderful to know that the Canal had us covered so that we could just enjoy our wedding day!

Ballard Bay Club, another beautiful waterview venue, is a gem located in Ballard. This venue has a bit of everything; with 2 rooms to utilize, complemented by brick and warm wood tones, as well as a patio and bit of lawn space for the ceremony or outdoor cocktail hours. Enjoy the plan trees, and the view of the Olympics, giving it that true beachy yet PNW feel. This venue is operated and catered by Jewel Hospitality Group which is a wonderful team of professionals who serve up some amazing food.

The event was fabulous, and I have only heard wonderful feedback. Every facet and detail where exceptional and that includes the staff across the board. Thank you again for making our event so spectacular and memorable!

The food was AMAZING. I have been to a lot of weddings where the food (especially buffet food) is mediocre or just plain terrible, but everything was excellent. I would definitely recommend!

Jewel was lovely the entire way through our process and our reception was wonderful. The staff was helpful and our guests loved the space. One thing we didn’t think of that I would encourage other brides to think about was that in June it stays light in Seattle well into the evening—it was hard for some of our guests to get in a dancing mood when the dance floor was still lit by the beautiful sunset outside. Not exactly a complaint but something to think about if you’re getting married in the summer in Seattle! Overall, I would recommend Jewel without hesitation for an event or wedding reception!

So thank you so much for everything, the salad was superb and the rolls nice and hot! And lots of butter!! Thanks again Nicole for all your hard work!

When looking for a venue, there were a few key elements we knew we wanted: something with a view, preferably water related. An open-concept place where we could have a big dance floor and accommodate around 150 people. Something that felt very “Seattle.” After looking at a few places in person, we came upon The Ballard Bay Club. The wood, the exposed brick, the water views—it felt very simple but elegant. The space was huge, but had different areas for different purposes and it was awesome. We would definitely work with Jewel Hospitality again! (Another great thing about our venue is everything was included—drinks, food, staff, tables, silverware, etc. We didn’t have to coordinate with a million companies, they simply took care of everything for us. And our food was FANTASTIC! I swear I emailed our venue contact 100 questions and she answered all of them without hesitation. The staff was lovely and made sure to do everything in their power to accommodate us and make sure our day was perfect!
