Supported Layouts and Capacities
The Colonnade at Bay Shore is a great location for a wedding venue. It has an amazing view of Tampa Bay. It has a great location, amazing service, and some of the best food I've have ever tasted. Colonnade is located conveniently between downtown and south Tampa, and has two major highways that can take you to it. The surrounding area is very classy and has some of the highest real estate in the area. This is for a very good reason, it is right on the Tampa Bay. There is a beautiful garden area sectioned off by bamboo and palms on the outside of the building that can be used as a very nice area for the service, and the inside includes stain glass windows, and featured lighting. The seating areas are very well laid out depending on what is wanted and how many guests there will be. For larger parties there is a larger space towards the back of the restaurant, or for smaller parties there is a sectioned off area in the middle. Both areas have an incredible water view. When there is a reservation, a party planner is designated to help with the details. There is no extra cost for arranging tables and chairs, and there is an option to use their linen. Everything is done in a timely manner to allow for decorating. The food and menu is also planned for the evening. It includes appetizers, main meals, drinks, deserts, muffins, and coffee for one flat amount per person. Everyone from the party planner to the waiter was so nice and courteous, and I had such a good experience, that I would recommend this venue to anyone that would like a no-hassle wedding and reception in one.
