Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The “BT” is a nod to “Boiler & Tank”, the business that originally occupied this striking brick warehouse. Built in 1914, it's been artfully restored, preserving many of the original fixtures and design elements.
  • Its interior is gorgeous, with exposed rafters and ductwork, unique lighting, glossy poured concrete flooring, plush bathrooms, and loads of space for all phases of your celebration.
  • The renovation added or improved tons of amenities that, when combined, create a perfect party. Among them, a street-level, drive-in loading bay (or VIP parking space!), multiple entrance points for guests and vendors, a floor-to-ceiling drapery system, dimmable lighting, and a 23-foot media wall.
