  • It's got a great location at the heart of historic Motor Row, easily accessed by both car and public transport. Five 4-star hotels are within walking distance, and the area's restored vintage storefronts offer tons of cool photo opportunities.
  • The loft-style space is filled with natural light, which streams in through arched windows and an enormous skylight. A gleaming wood floor practically begs you to dance on it, while exposed brick and ductwork add industrial charm.
  • Your package includes lots of helpful on-site services and amenities—lounge furniture, farm tables, a photo booth, uplighting, coat check, door security, and more—that will give you peace of mind.


We now offer Micro-Weddings starting at $125 per person! These can include Catering, BYOB or Beverage Package, Staffing, Day-of Coordinator, Floral, and Rentals. Please contact the venue for more details.
