The

Event Space

The Strongwater Event Space resides between three rooms of the former EBCO manufacturing floor. The multi-room space effortlessly exudes an urban warehouse aesthetic throughout the Gallery great room showcasing original sawtooth window skylights, and the adjoining Annex featuring a hand laid permanent bar made of repurposed birch and the attached private open air Courtyard. Between the gorgeous natural light pouring through all three areas, private event entrances, two sets of restrooms, ample parking within walking distance, expansive grids of pane windows, and exposed brick everywhere, our event space is a flexible and accommodating venue full of character appropriate for any number of events.

Your

Event

The Strongwater Event Staff can’t wait to assist you in the process of planning and executing your next event! Both the Gallery and Annex + Courtyard spaces provide fully stocked permanent bars with a full liquor license and trained bartenders, an in-house catering program designed by the Strongwater Executive and Sous Chefs, a slew of preferred vendor recommendations, and an ever-helpful event staff to guide you through your event process.

We booked Strongwater for our September 2023 wedding, and we think it is the most perfect wedding venue in Columbus. The industrial sheik vibe is the backdrop to a beautiful outdoor ceremony space, and two hip indoor spaces that get set for cocktail hour and the reception.

Additionally, there are two bridal suites so the couple and their wedding party can all get ready on site together. We ended up doing the rehearsal on the day of the wedding at noon. When we finished up, we had food delivered to the bride's suite and the groom and groomsmen went across the street to Land Grant to watch college football and have lunch before they had to walk back over and get ready. It's nice that Strongwater is so close to Land Grant and also BrewDog in case guests want to meet up with other guests for a drink before the wedding.

There are huge parking lots for guests right next to the building. And cars can be left overnight if guests end up needing to call a rideshare at the end of the night.

The venue offers family-style dinner. We weren't sure about that at first, but it ended up being pretty perfect -- more options than a plated meal, while still receiving table service.

The best part about the venue is that you get assigned a wedding coordinator who starts working with you from six-months out up until reception. We worked with Elenore Starkey and I can't say enough great things about her. She was so great at responding to emails and answering all of our questions. If she didn't know the answer, she would ask somebody else and get back to us. She worked with the vendors. She met with us for the menu tasing and the final walk-through. She ran a super efficient rehearsal and executed perfectly the day-of. I know many people talk about hiring a "month-of" planner, but Elenore was so good at her job, we didn't feel we needed any extra outside coordination.

Just overall a perfect space to host the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.
