Niagara Falls is an iconic destination for events, from corporate meetings to large conventions. While you can’t miss with any location that benefits from the natural beauty of the Falls themselves, why not try an unusual venue that will surprise and delight your attendees? Whether you need a place to stage the perfect presentation, a fun-filled cocktail party spot or a dinner fit for foodies, we’ve got a round-up of the must-see event spaces you’ll want to consider.
Top of the Falls Restaurant
You cannot ask for a more spectacular backdrop for your event than the iconic Falls themselves. Top of the Falls Restaurant is the only restaurant overlooking the roaring waters inside Niagara Falls State Park and is open for events seasonally from April-October for groups varying from 80-120 people. Choose from one of the restaurant’s signature banquet menus, including the Western New York Favorites buffet for a touch of local flavor.
Aquarium of Niagara
Your group deserves an exciting activity, which makes the Aquarium of Niagara the ideal fit. From a sea lion show to an up-close face-to-beak penguin encounter, your attendees can experience and interact with sea life here. You can even rent out the entire aquarium for a unique after-hours reception.
Hard Rock Cafe Niagara Falls USA
Get your group ready to rock when you rent out the Hard Rock Cafe for your next event. Attendees can unplug and let off steam while eating classic American food and checking out memorabilia from rock legends. Create a legendary evening that everyone will remember.
Niagara Falls Culinary Institute
Calling all foodies! There’s no better team-building event than a cooking class at the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute. Add on an open bar, dinner at Savor (the Institute’s fine dining restaurant) or even a custom-made cake by their private chef.
Freedom Run Winery
Freedom Run Winery offers a variety of venues within one property, depending on the size of your event and the mood you’re seeking. The rustic timber-framed barn dates back to 1826 but has been fully modernized (including being accessible). The Tasting Room offers a contemporary feel with colorful blown-glass flowers, leather couches and hand-crafted barrel tables. The Barrel Room adjoins the Tasting Room and is lined with oak barrels and large stainless steel wine tanks.
Old Falls Street, USA
Host your own outdoor block party along charming Old Falls Street, a 3-block entertainment district just footsteps from the Falls. Your guests can lounge in Adirondack chairs or play an outdoor game, or just enjoy an al fresco meal along the cobblestone streets.
Brickyard Brewing Company
Sometimes you want a more relaxed venue for your group meeting or dinner, and the Brickyard Brewing Company in Lewiston offers a rustic venue with plenty of polish. With a variety of craft beers to sample alongside a full menu of freshly prepared food, your guests will feel instantly comfortable. For large groups, the on-site coordinator will work with you to ensure your event goes off without a hitch.
