Why We Like This Place

  • Phenomenal views of the Ballard Locks distinguish this uniquely Seattle spot. Located in one of the city’s hippest and most popular neighborhoods, The Canal offers an endlessly fascinating tableau of the boats coming down the waterway.
  • Their large, heated and covered patio is perfect for a waterfront ceremony—especially when adorned with seasonal flowers. It’s also great for cocktails…but don’t overlook the curvy indoor bar and lounge which, like the spacious two-tiered dining area, boasts a wall of windows.
  • Guests will rave about the delectable cuisine that can be customized to your needs. (Vegans and those with allergies rejoice!). Follow your feast with an after-dinner spin around the oversize dance floor, lit by the soft romantic glow of lanterns.
