The fifth annual Dinner by Design is where Vancouver’s twin passions for fine dining and even finer design come together.
Dinner by Design will offer over a dozen top-tier, West Coast-based interior designers — such as Interalia Designs & YEW + Design Build, Chrissy & Co., Ryleah Shae Design and Filosophi Event Design — free rein to create extraordinary tablescapes and dining rooms within a 12×12-foot footprint. The only limit is their imagination.
In keeping with the event’s mandate to foster the next generation of design stars, students of the benefiting VCAD Interior Design Program will be tasked with creating a camera studio, cocktail bar and video game lounge for Daily Hive Vancouver under the mentorship of designers Robert Blaney, Matthew Herbert of Sherwood Cabinetry + Consult YVR and Kyla Ray. These installations will be unveiled at Dinner by Design and then moved to the Daily Hive office in Yaletown where they will permanently live.
“We’re very excited to have this year’s VCAD design students back to collaborate and create new spaces and even more excited to unveil them to the Daily Hive Vancouver team for their Yaletown office,” says Social Concierge organizer Tyson Villeneuve. “Every year the VCAD mentorship program at Dinner by Design really elevates Vancouver’s interior design community.”
The collection of tablescapes, room sets and the student-designed bar, lounge and studio will serve as the backdrop for two magical, back-to-back evenings:
- Cocktail Art, Vancouver’s largest and most stylish cocktail party for 850 guests (Thursday, November 16, 8pm to late)
- Dinner by Design Gala Dinner, a multi-course dining experience served to 120 guests seated inside the Dinner by Design tablescapes (Friday, November 17, 6:30pm to late)
On Thursday, November 16, Cocktail Art will bring together upwards of 850 guests for an extravagant showcase of Vancouver’s world-renowned cocktail culture—and you could win a pair of tickets! An all-star bar team will concoct a series of signature cocktails, each one conceived to push the limits of mixology. Canapés will be provided by an enviable roster of some of the city’s top restaurants and caterers.
