Our Building

100 Braid St Studios, a New Westminster heritage wedding venue, offers thirteen foot ceilings and open 2,500 square feet of entertaining space, and can comfortably accommodate up to 120 guests in an intimate setting.

Located centrally in New Westminster, our heritage 1929 BC Distillery warehouse will surround you and your guests with stunning vintage architecture, natural light and beautiful art.  Whether it’s a wedding, anniversary or any other celebration, our gallery captures the charm of times past while simultaneously offering modern amenities to facilitate flawless events.

Upon arriving, the former BC Distillery and Winery building, with its grain elevator shaped Cupola on the roof, provides a distinct heritage industrial vibe. This is juxtaposed by the 10 foot glass entrance doors flanked by art deco stained glass panels and gives a small hint as to the beauty and charms guests can expect upon moving inside.

There, walls made of vintage wood windows allow ethereal light to filter into the gallery from the exterior nine foot high windows and enable guests to see into the working artist studios area, providing a stunning backdrop of beautiful art.

Reclaimed wood and industrial materials are featured in our floor to ceiling fireplace and lounge seating area, window bench seating, washrooms and kitchen. Special features include separate power for extra sound systems and lighting and a heating and cooling system to keep guests comfortable in any temperature. Our kitchen boasts both a convection and regular oven, a full size fridge, freezer, dishwasher and microwave.
