  • Wonderful venue- so fun, so many compliments for the unique, industrial space. We used indoors for the wedding, dinner, and dance floor, and outside for the cocktail hour (the fantastic caterers at vibrant table flipped the whole thing). Can't say enough about this place, though. Really awesome for a young, fun wedding. We had ~200 people and it was magic (plus there are some fun dive bars for those who want to continue the party into the wee hours)

  • Castaway is great on about a hundred different levels. A few things I love: * The polished concrete floor * The picture-perfect lighting * The high ceiling * The private room in back (for getting away from the crowd) * The service and flexibility * The fact that it used to be a bronze casting studio They provided me with a floor plan, detailed contracts ... basically everything I needed to get ready for the wedding. And when I walked in day-of, it was even better than I'd expected. A wonderful event space for those who want something fresh, open, and more modern than a ballroom.

  • Castaway is a top notch wedding venue. It is not the most economical option, but you certainly get what you pay for. The oversize strung lights, old wood beam ceilings and expansive views of the Fremont Bridge are a truly amazing backdrop for any event. I love the tone it set for my celebration. The cement floors kept the pinks and stripes in my decor from getting too precious and preppy while the wood beam ceilings enhanced the other nostalgic details in the decor. Recent renovations have also completely closed off the kitchen area and added AC. For brides with a smaller guest list, we hosted a successful event here with only 75. We definitely had open space but it never felt cavernous. Don't let a smaller head count deter you from booking here.

  • I got married at Castaway on July 6th and it was wonderful. Casey and the entire staff were so friendly, personal and helpful leading up to the wedding day and after. We had the ceremony in Versailles Gardens and the reception in Castaway, and it worked out great. The space is always improving - from the new bar area to the lighting, etc. Overall, the space was magical from sundown to midnight - great for mingling, eating, and plenty of dancing. Highly recommended!

  • Where do I begin... Let's start with the positives: the space is an amazing warehouse with a fantastic view of the freemont bridge. I love the concrete floors, the huge windows, and the location being right in Portland (even though there's quite the homeless population hanging around outside). We also booked the adjacent space- Versailles Gardens which after A LOT of discussion with the owner and forcing him to keep to his word about rearranging his pots, turned out perfect for the ceremony and cocktail hour. A few negatives: -unprofessional staff (ie. weeks, WEEKS go by with no response to emails or phone calls. And this was not just one occasion). The only person who actually answers the phone or responds to an email in any kind of timely fashion is Alli. She is their redeeming quality on the customer service front. It was pretty evident that they lack experience compared to other venues/vendors we worked with. -fees for days! When we first looked at venues, castaway only ... Read more

  • We could not have been more thrilled to have our wedding at Castaway. Not only were they flexible, communicative, and a pleasure to work with, but the venue offers up a bevy of options so that you can make the room look exactly as you like. There are so many great things about the venue, but to name a few: plenty of free parking, great locations and backdrops for photos, they let you use food carts, terrific sound system, and everyone who works there is personable, especially Alli, who might just be our new favorite person in town. Castaway will no doubt soon become one of the more popular places in Portland to get married. Rightly so!

  • A gorgeous venue. Our needs were many: an indoor spot for a November wedding, a space that could accommodate 100+ guests for the ceremony AND reception (so people didn't have to go to more than one place), plus a space that felt beautiful and very "Portland." We were so turned off by the traditional wedding venues until we found Castaway. No "flipping" necessary and beautiful, too. I must have called our venue coordinator Danny with questions about measurements of some obscure part of the space 20 times and he never batted an eyelash. They take service very seriously. The bar is super rad and there is a killer view of the Fremont Bridge. And if you are getting married in the late afternoon/early evening, the light streaming in the west windows is divine. Yes – you might find that some other venues are less expensive. But the attentive staff, included tables/chairs, and beautiful surroundings justify that cost.

  • Castaway was going the be our venue from the first time we saw it! It is a magical space, so much great light, excellent amenities, sound system, and the space comes with tables and chairs for 200 guests! We have some BEAUTIFUL photos taken outside against the periwinkle exterior and also on the train tracks just a half block away. Our initial contact was Casey, he helped us narrow down vendors, very helpful! Thank you Castaway for an amazing venue for both our ceremony and reception!

  • We held our wedding and reception here. It is a raw space and can be transformed into a wonderful reception space, and it was for us. Versailles, next door, provides a great cocktail area. But it may not be for everyone. It is right next to train tracks and we had at least 3 trains come through during the outdoor wedding ceremony. Also, there is no air conditioning and, on a hot day, it can be somewhat uncomfortable inside for an evening reception. But, all in all, we really loved the space and thought everything went great. Also, they have ping pong and pool tables. Our guests loved them.
