Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Built in 1917 as part of a World War I munitions complex, this special spot has been thoughtfully renovated with an eye toward preserving its historic charm and providing top-notch amenities for modern celebrations.
  • Soaring vaulted ceilings with exposed steel-beam rafters create loft-style vibes, while oversized arched windows ensure the space is filled with tons of natural light. Exposed brick walls and poured concrete flooring round out the industrial-chic aesthetic.
  • Large roll-up doors open onto a fantastic outdoor area, perfect for cocktail hour or overflow seating. It can be tented in the event of rain, and also has space for food trucks.
