Held on May 25 at 130 West, the ILEA Vancouver Distill Gala was a chance for members to get together and honour the very best of 2016/17.  Featuring the 2nd Annual ILEA Vancouver Awards, the event, designed by Elizabeth Stanley Event Design and catered by the Lazy Gourmet evoked an industrial meets elegance feeling through its unique the “prohibition” themed ambiance. As guests spent time connecting and celebrating the successful year for ILEA Vancouver and it’s members they dined on spirit inspired gourmet cuisine.

The fabulous décor included long wooden harvest tables with smoke grey lucite chairs which helped set the industrial tone while warm accents of copper and gold vases, navy blue shantung napkins, slate black  stone charger plates and the glow of candle light added to the downtown chic sophistication.
