  • I scheduled a tour of the venue and she told me to come by anytime 10-12 I showed up at 10:30 and no one was there! The doors were unlocked and a cart of purses and coats were left unattended the whole hour we were there looking at the venue and waiting for someone to show up.

    responded with the following comments.

    Ashley, my apologies that we did not meet. When couples are not sure of what time they will arrive, I give a range and ask they come to our office on the 2nd floor for a tour. I did not receive any calls informing me that you were here or I would have came downstairs. FYI the items on the cart were items that were being donated and waiting for pick up which is why the doors were unlocked.

  • We celebrated our daughter’s wedding and reception and everything was fabulous ! The event space was spectacular for a 6:00 wedding held on September 29th. Christine made sure we had everything we needed to make the event special. Service was remarkable. Thank you to Christine & Nick for making our daughter’s wedding so special .

  • We were very hesitant with booking with The Urban Event after reading many bad reviews but I absolutely fell in love with the venue the moment I walked it. I was so worried after reading the reviews that I toured close to 15 different venues. No others could even compare so we decided that we would "risk it" and book with the urban event. We could not be any happier that we did. The whole process leading up to the wedding went very smooth. Any questions that we had were answered quickly and they made sure that the set up was exactly what we wanted. The only hang up that we had was the elevator wouldn't open on some of the floors so we had to take the stairs. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose the urban event everytime. I would highly recommend the first floor/basement as our wedding couldn't be more perfect.

  • The Urban Event is a beautiful place to get married in. Their staff is amazing to work with and very attentive to the needs of the guests. You can't go wrong with the gorgeous venue and wonderful staff! Best night of our lives!

  • We held our wedding here in mid-March of 2018 in the first floor space and had an amazing time! For our space we did not have any issues except for a couple things not completely setup when we arrived. These were quickly fixed when we asked for assistance. There were three weddings in the building that evening but we were never bothered by the others, we really wouldn't have known they were there had we not seen them earlier in day while setting up. There was one elevator issue that evening but luckily it did not impact our family and friends, it sounded as if another group had overloaded the weight capacity. The owners were good to work with as long as you do not want someone to "hold your hand" so to speak throughout the entire process; if you need that, please have a wedding coordinator with this venue. The owners are much easier to get in contact with via phone than by email, which I appreciate. The price for our space for a 150 person wedding with all tables, chairs, linens, glass... Read more

  • Look beyond the View of this Historic Building...Just attended a New Years Wedding at this Venue and it was a disaster from the start. The elevator didn't work to to get guest to the lower level. The entire building was so cold and the thermostats were either shut off or locked at 64 degrees. The sleazy owner was present most of the time and when asked to turn up the heat he said "tell everyone to wear their coats". Pretty hard to celebrate with wearing your coat. The owner also turned off lights on guests sitting at tables and the staff never cleared the tables of dirty dishes and glasses nor did they tidy up the bathrooms the entire evening.

  • We did not have a good experience. Everything went south the week of the wedding. Nicholas called us on Monday telling us the elevator was broken. We called Christina to try to find out more details and start to make a new plan. The said they did not trust the elevator to take our 150 guests up to the 8th floor, that there was an elevator part on the way but would not come in for the wedding. Everything we had planned for 9 months was thrown in the trash. They told us we had to move to the first floor and basement. I never liked the first floor option because of the split level and having to organize 2 spaces, and here I was having to do just that a few days before the wedding. The were never apologetic or offered any help with making the new plans. I then had to spend extra money at the last minute with decorating the split level space; 2 bars, the DJ change floors, getting elderly guests to the basement without an elevator. The day of the wedding we found out on our own that the elev... Read more

  • Definitely glad we had our wedding at the Urban Event. The thing about this venue is that it includes so many extras you won't find anywhere else without paying a lot more, or renting and bringing it in. All tables and chairs and the chairs are chiavari, floor length linens and napkins (variety of colors for napkins), actual silverware, water goblets and plates instead of plastic, and mirrors and vases you can use. Chris and Nick are nice and easy to work with, however you do have to contact them, they won't prompt you so make sure you stay on that. Only disappointment the day of was that we were supposed to get the photo booth for 2 hours of our reception, and it was never brought up. No one noticed and everything was still great, but bummed because it was supposed to be included.

  • BE AWARE THIS COMPANY IS A CON.. THERE ARE MULTIPLE LAW SUITS UNDERWAY TAKING HIM TO COURT FOR NOT PROVIDING WHAT CLIENTS PAY FOR. FIND ANOTHER PLACE - DO NOT GIVE THIS MAN A DEPOSIT - AS YOU WILL NEVER GET IT BACK.. HE WON'T PERFORM WHAT HE PROMISES AND HE DOESN'T CARE IF YOU COMPLAIN. MANY WEDDINGS HAVE BEEN CANCELED DUE TO HORRIBLE EXPERINCES FROM RECENT CLIENTS. DON'T MAKE THIS MISTAKE - IT'S A BEAUTIFUL PLACE - BUT HE HAS RUINED THE BUILDING AND THE BEAUTY OF THE SPACE. HE IS A CON - WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND RUN.

  • My husband and I had a great evening wedding. Chris and her staff did everthing so my family and friends didn't have to. She set up the wedding on the three floor and cock tail hour and reception on the eight floor with table cloths, napkins, and we even used her chargers so we didn't have to rent them. All of her suggestions we fantastic from the food to the DJ. I wish I could get married everyday.

  • The Urban Event turned out to be the best venue to meet all our needs for our daughter's wedding. Kris and Nick were extremely helpful the day of the wedding. While my daughter had a specific look she was going after and we brought all of our decorations, we did need a few things from Nick and Kris. They were very helpful in making sure we had what we needed and getting it where we needed it. The elevator worked perfectly throughout the day and evening making it VERY easy for our guests, caterers and other services to get where they needed to be. Kris and Nick were on site all day (the day of the event) and made sure not only my daughter and I had what we needed, but actually called a couple of our caterers to ensure they were running on time - this was an added bonus that helped the bride to not worry. I would definitely use this venue again and recommend it to friends and family!!! As a matter of fact, I already have. THANK YOU NICK AND KRIS for the beautiful venue and... Read more

  • Absolutely gorgeous venue. I fell in love when Nick showed us! We had our reception on the 8th floor with access to the 3rd floor with the bride and groom suites. I love that they have open catering and open liquor vendors. Chris was straight forward on their offerings and pricing and is knowledgable about weddings. Be prepared to write everything down so you don't forget specifics. I do not believe use of the photo booth for 2 hours was in the contract but was included. They offer use of vases and other centerpiece options but don't show you any options so we went with providing our own centerpieces and our florist set them up. Chris would respond within a day or so via email for any random questions I had Up until about 3 months out. They provide servers but they only buss tables so you do need a caterer to handle food. I was worried that we wouldn't be able to use the rooftop that we were promised but Chris reassured me 3 months before that my wedding party and I would have access... Read more

  • The venue itself is beyond beautiful and I have no complaints about it. The service however was far below expectations. The owner was very friendly but his wife/co-owner was off-putting and abrasive and she was unfortunately my main point of contact. The elevator did not work most of the evening forcing our guests to walk up 8 flights of stairs after repeated assurance that it had been fixed and was in working order. The parking lot next to the building was promised to be open for guest parking and never was after being told all day it would be taken care of. I have called and emailed repeatedly to discuss these problems with them without a response back. It was truly a beautiful space but I would not recommend this venue to a friend due to the lack of service.

  • So what I can say about the Venue is that the space is beautiful and so are the views. Thank goodness for artistic eyes and friends to make the day perfect. I would like to say that I don't have any complaints but I do. First, communication is lackadaisical. It takes days to get emails back and sometimes multiple emails for a response. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. You get one statement from the husband and another from the wife. It was somewhat of a cluster. The were major issues at the venue. From only having on person available for 3 floors, the space being dirty (esp. bathrooms), no running water in the men's room, water leaking from the ceiling, missing door handles and no way to get out of the catering room if the door closes. The biggest thing was the elevator breaking down, even though this was assured to be fixed and no problems with the elevator. It is a same that this had to put a damper on my day...good thing I didn't really know most ... Read more
