Cafe Refresh Helps Us Cater to You

October 25, 2013

newtopdeckRAYSFollowing the beautiful remodel of our Ray’s Boathouse dining room downstairs last winter, we are ready for the next phase of our refresh, as we begin the evolution of Ray’s Café upstairs.

The first step is refurbishing the northern section of the Cafe dining room, affectionately referred to as the “Top Deck.”   By early November, the installation of new carpet, paint, art and lighting will be complete, along with new flexibility to subdivide that portion of the Cafe to accommodate private parties with a view.

The transformation into these two new sections, named the “Fireplace Room” and the “West Deck,” will allow us to host groups in either section, separately or as one large event in the entire “Top Deck.”

  • The Fireplace Room will accommodate up to 30 people, with buffet and plated dining options available
  • The West Deck will accommodate up to 20 people, with plated dining options available
  • The Top Deck will accommodate up to 50 people, with buffet and plated dining options available

This reconfiguration of the Cafe gives guests three distinct options for hosting a private party at Ray’s. In addition to the new Cafe event space, guests can reserve the Northwest Room (15-120 guests), our private waterfront banquet room next door to the restaurant. We can also accommodate private events in Ballard at either end of the Ray’s Boathouse dining room (20-46 people) or reserve the entire Boathouse for a daytime event.

At Ray’s Catering, we look forward to the opportunity to work with you on creating a magical occasion. Our team is passionate and committed to creating a memorable event that your guests will always remember and cherish. Please give us a call today (206-789-6309) or click here to request a quote,  so we can reserve a date and space just for you!
