Why We Like This Place

Extraordinary weddings are celebrated amongst extraordinary art at this former torpedo factory on the Alexandria waterfront. Renovated in 1974, the striking three-story building makes a unique event venue, featuring works by more than 160 artists displayed in over 80 artist studios and 6 galleries. Spot lighting sets the mood and your flowers, music and food add a personal touch. Bricked terraces may be tented to extend the space for a larger group or special evening under the stars.
