A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
Read More Show Less
  • Occupying the second-floor loft of Avondale Brewing Company's historic building, this intimate venue blends a cool, industrial aesthetic with warm, vintage charm.
  • The interior boasts gleaming wood flooring, brick walls, and the original exposed-rafter ceiling. Rows of windows and a skylight bring in lots of natural light, and the space works beautifully with a range of décor choices.
  • You can pair your meal with Avondale's exceptional brews—saisons, sours, lagers, and more—each of which has a great local story to match its name.
