Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A historic gem in the heart of downtown Sheboygan, this former Montgomery Ward Department Store is perched above beloved neighborhood spot Black Pig Restaurant, whose owners operate the venue and oversee its elevated comfort food-inspired menu. 
  • Twenty-foot ceilings are bolstered by original black steel beams, and two levels of windows fill the entire space with light. Cream-toned walls of exposed city bricks add to the industrial-chic vibes, and the intimate loft offers views of downtown and Lake Michigan. 
  • Their in-house catering and bakery pros boast a combined 50 years of event experience, and are on hand to create the made-from-scratch dining experience of your dreams. Cocktails are taken care of, too, thanks to their top-notch full-service bar program.
