It’s so exciting to see the look on couples’ faces as they walk through the venue and envision their special celebration here. The best part of my job is meeting new people and making their special occasion one-of-a-kind.”

What Sets The Historic Post Office Apart from Other Event Spaces?

“It’s all in the details. The people, the culture, the amenities, and the facility are a vibrant part of Ottawa’s rich history. In every corner there’s a piece of history that catches your eye. The venue still retains its original marble floors, the post office window – it’s the perfect backdrop for any theme or décor.”

How Should One Go About Booking an Event?

“We like to make it simple and easy for you! Give us a call or email to request a tour. While you’re visiting, we’ll happily discuss your celebration. Once you’re ready to book, we’ll have you sign the contract and put down a deposit. Then, we’ll work alongside your vendors to make your event a reality. If you have any questions, we’ll gladly talk with you through the process to ensure all the important details are covered.

“We’ll also provide a helpful information packet that tells you about our process and all the information you’ll need for the day of your event.”

What’s the Best Spot in the Venue to Take Photos?

“The entire building is a photographer’s dream. The Historic Post Office is like a trip back to 1913. The architecture is amazing! Our foyer area has original marble and stone that came from quarries in Georgia.”

Describe the Business Events Hosted at The Historic Post Office.

“The Historic Post Office can truly be transformed to about anything. For business events, we provide state-of-the art audio and visual equipment, projector screens, and WiFi.

“We make it as seamless as possible for anyone’s events. We’d love to hear any special request. For something unique for business events, I recommend the Speakeasy Lounge. It’s a prohibition era style bar, so everyone can enjoy the different seating areas and have a few drinks.”

Why Choose Ottawa for a Wedding or Event?

“Ottawa is an up-and-coming town. It’s really a charming place…makes you feel like it’s only you and your party guests.
