Smack DAB, the lively kitchen and bar located in the heart of Kelowna’s Manteo Resort, is a fun place where you can be yourself year round. Located on the shore of Okanagan Lake, it is designed to take full advantage of the view. The food is fantastic with favourites from the extensive menu including Handcrafted Pizzas, Forno-baked French Onion Soup, Fish Tacones, Sicillian Braised Lamb Pasta, Short Ribs & Prawns.
Smack DAB also offers 12 craft beers on tap and a large assortment of bottled selections from BC and the Pacific Northwest. There is also an Okanagan-inspired wine list and seasonal cocktail menu.
Popular this winter is Smack DAB’s The View Room, a private dining and meeting room that seats up to 24 people and features a beautiful hand-crafted harvest dining table. Fully equipped with high-tech audio-visual equipment including a Smart TV, The View Room is perfect or meetings, corporate dinners, family get-togethers or any fun social event where you would like a bit more privacy. On beautiful Okanagan days, you can even enjoy a private patio with comfortable lounge seating.
Manteo general manager Heather Schroeter says The View Room is very busy for Christmas party bookings. “It is a very well-used room,” she says. “You can’t beat the location and it has exceeded our expectations.”
In fact, Manteo is perfect for meetings, retreats and banquets. “Our 102-unit full service resort features over 5,000 square feet of waterfront meeting and conference facilities, ideal for groups up to 200,” says Heather. All facilities have a lake view, with floor-to-ceiling windows in each room which offers an elegant, yet comfortable setting to relax and enjoy.
“Make it fun or make it formal—we’ll be ready for you,” says Heather.
