About The Canal Dock Boathouse

The Canal Dock Boathouse is a banquet hall wedding venue located in New Haven, Connecticut. Offering indoor spaces, outside waterfront areas, and ample room to host large or small wedding celebrations, it has a great deal of appeal for couples planning a range of diverse wedding events.

Facilities and Capacity

Thanks to the expansive room on offer at The Canal Dock Boathouse, the happy couple and their guests can relax in style, comfort, and elegant surroundings.

The Main Hall measures some 3,600 square feet, allowing room for several dozen guests to be seated at round tables while they enjoy the wedding-day meal. Here, there is also space for the head table to be positioned. All the while, the whole wedding party can take in the views of the magnificent harbor facing south. Vaulted ceilings, tall windows, and overhead lighting each contribute to the bright and well-ventilated feel of the room. When decked out with some 20 round tables, chairs, and populated with guests, the room comes alive. What’s more, a dance floor affords everyone space to get down and move to the music for the evening.

The Adee Room is approximately one-third the size of the Main Hall. Here, nine round tables, seating six guests each - plus the addition of the all-important sweetheart table - means that almost 60 people can be accommodated here comfortably. A bar area can also be provided for everyone to partake in some beverages as the meal gets underway. From here, the terrace can also be accessed for those seeking to get closer to the romantic waterfront views of the bay and the nearby Long Island Sound.

Each room can also be laid out for ceremonies meaning if your celebration has a lengthy guest list or a shortlist of invitees, your get-together can take place here in style, regardless.

Elsewhere inside The Canal Dock, meeting rooms, offices, and a green room provide breakout areas for everyone to spill into - an ideal feature in between the ceremony and reception as the large spaces are transformed according to your specifications.

Services Offered

Evidently, The Canal Dock Boathouse is an ideal setting for all manner of wedding events. With so much room available, it is flexible enough to host different types of gatherings throughout the course of your wedding day. The venue’s staff can make themselves available to arrange the different event spaces according to your needs - whether you are planning a seated or standing portion of the day (cocktail hour, for example).

Additionally, for the adventurous among your wedding party, there are always a number of water-themed events happening along the docks.
