We host our annual Corp welcome social at ATG every year for the last 3 years. The Venue is amazing! Being right by the water gives such a nice atmosphere, especially when its nice and warm outside. The Food and staff are AMAZING!! Caroline is an absolute pleasure to work with on planning our events.

My partner and I hosted our wedding for 200 guests at Against the Grain and had our ceremony in the Corus Atrium. It was a perfect celebration and the team at FAB Events was so professional and easy to work with. The servers and staff were all genuinely excited to host us. Our guests told us the food was fantastic and having a huge lakeside patio to ourselves was lovely. It was truly a great space and a great team to work with. They went above and beyond and we couldn't have been happier with the evening. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Me and my partner held a small wedding at Against the Grain, and we could not be happier with our choice.
The day was perfect from start to finish, and Jennifer was absolutely amazing!
Jennifer considered every detail and was so helpful and kind throughout the process.
The food was delicious and the staff were wonderful.
We are so pleased with how everything went, and we will definitely be back for future events.

Thank you to Jennifer for her help during the booking process and on site for our recent Alumni Reunion event at this Against The Grain – Corus Quay location. Everything went smoothly during the evening and all our requests were accommodated efficiently. We were pleased with the food presented/served as well as the friendly service provided by the team there (Meaghan, Kayla, the bartenders and the serving staff).

My wife's birthday was celebrated here. Jennifer and the team were very accommodating and the event went smoothly. 40 people were easily served and the food was great. View of Lake and the sun that day was also spectacular. Thanks for having us!
