Weddings & Corporate

A Tradition of Quality and Service

At the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club, we have stood for quality food and beverage service in a warm and comfortable Club atmosphere for over a hundred and twenty years. It is a feeling we convey and a promise we have made, that has stood the test of time and continues today in the friendly spirit on which this Club was founded.

We have offered our services to members and their friends throughout our history. Whether you are seeking a venue for a family get together, a casual gathering for the office, a special reception, dinner for a wedding, corporate affair or anniversary, we will exceed your expectations and satisfy your budgetary needs as well.

We are a year round facility offering an exceptional summer waterfront experience or the charm of a cozy winter getaway next to the lake.

For additional information on our products and services, contact our Event Coordinator dining@rhyc.ca to discuss your event needs.

Spend time on your agenda, not on your menu. Our packages are ideally suited to ensure your timelines are kept and that your group’s bodies and minds are equally nourished. We can set up as theatre, squares, rectangles, boardroom or classroom style. Your get-togethers and meetings will be made special with time, quality, and value in mind.

Special Events

Casual elegance is assured with any of our functions. Sit back and let us take care of you and your guests. If your event requires a bit more mingling and less formality than that of a sit down meal, then a cocktail reception must be just what you’re looking for. It is always fun and great for socializing. Whether you prefer to have guests mill about and choose from an assortment of displayed fare or to have our service team bring our temptations to you, we are happy to provide the style of reception that suits your event.

Let us assist in your day and these packages will eliminate a number of details from your planning. We will organize your linen colours, décor, ceremony and reception, and your special menu. These packages will let you enjoy the day and we will manage the rest. A leisurely buffet offers a little more variety and relaxed style to put all at ease. A set menu can assist in ensuring the festivities go according to plan and allow for a more formal degree of elegance.

If needed, we use the services of several ordained professionals, ministers, and clergy from the area. We are pleased to offer suggestions for a number of talented ceremonial musicians from classical guitarists to string or jazz combos, keyboardists, and full ensembles. Let us know how we can help in this area.

If you are seeking to host your ceremony with us, we have a sprawling lawn next to the water where magical Spring, Summer and Fall weddings are gently serenaded by the sounds of the Bay, under our beautiful birch tree or near our garden.

If you are concerned about weather, we also have a covered patio adjacent to the Club, offering shelter without sacrificing the view. If the weather is chillier or the time of year is not conducive to an outdoor wedding, we have the wonderful Evergreen Room which can comfortably accommodate your special moments.
