Also known as the Officer's Mess, the Wardroom is located at 1586 Esquimalt Road. This building was opened in April 2000 and overlooks beautiful Esquimalt Harbour.

The Mess is a non-public entity and is designed for the social and professional use of the officers and guests of Maritime Forces Pacific.  Membership privileges are also offered to civilian members of the Defence Team with officer status, retired military officers, and a select group of distinguished civilians in our community.

The Accommodation facility is operated as a public entity, designed to provide quarters for single or unaccompanied officers choosing to "live-in" and for officers on Temporary Duty.

Valentine's Day Dinner

From 17:30 to 19:00

Are you already starting to think about how to impress that special someone you’ve got your eye on? Or perhaps you’re looking for new ways to show your long-term sweetheart just how much you care. Well, look no further as the Wardroom is watching out for your amorous aspirations. On Saturday 14 February 2015, the Wardroom will be holding its annual St. Valentine’s Dinner & Dance, commencing at 1730 with dinner at 1900,

A complimentary rose for the ladies will greet you as you arrive, followed by a professional portrait photograph of you and your guest(s) to capture this special moment. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks and appetizers in the upper lounge, while being entranced by the sweet sound of Victoria’s Alison Vardy, solo Celtic harpist.

As it is fun to learn things together as a couple, we will have a sommelier on-hand to explain the ins and outs of wine snobbery so you can better understand the reasons behind the choice of wines that are paired with the 3 course meal, and you can look good nosing your glass and swirl like a pro.

After dinner, you can dance the night away with our DJ into the wee hours; slow dances are a safe bet.

Dress for this event is semi-formal (which equates to suit or jacket and tie for the gentlemen and cocktail dresses for the ladies).

The St. Valentine’s Dinner and Dance is always a very popular event in the Wardroom and tickets sell out fast. The cost is $50 for members ($100 per couple), $55 for non-members (so $110 per couple) and $65 for additional guests ($130 per couple). To arrange for your tickets contact Megan Ilott, our Events Coordinator, at 250-363-2689 or at

A follow-up email will be released in the New Year highlighting the succulent menu our chefs will be preparing.
The Gunroom is also part of the Wardroom and is located on Victoria View Road near the end of Lyall Street. The Gunroom is part of Venture and is home to the officers under training.
