Cater your next special event at the Patrick J. Paladino Memorial Boathouse, pairing a modern aesthetic with a great view of the historic Buffalo River.


Completed in 2019, the new Patrick J. Paladino Memorial Boathouse is home to the Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Association, and is the newest addition to our catalog of partnered venues. This two-story structure, located at 405 Ohio Street, sits alongside the Buffalo River in the emerging Old First Ward neighborhood.

The Boathouse is a perfect catered event venue for weddings, showers, fundraisers, parties, and other special occasions. Located directly on the waterfront, the building’s second-floor balcony affords expansive views of the winding Buffalo River and open skies above. The striking angled facade of the Boathouse will lend some dramatic flair to your special day, while the surrounding property provides ample space to set up tents with a degree of privacy.
