Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked in what was formerly a manufacturing plant, this turn-of-the-century charmer offers vintage-modern style, awesome flexibility, and a great West Town location.
  • Inside, you’ll find exposed brick, rafters, and ductwork, fun décor touches like whimsical wall coverings, and tons of light flowing in from giant industrial skylights.
  • Their ample amenities include a private dressing suite, staging areas, a prep kitchen, lounge vignettes, a luxe bar, and state-of-the-art digital capabilities.
