The venue for our welcome reception completely changed the terms of our agreement on us 2 weeks before our wedding. We called Blackwall Hitch and Darcy put together an incredible reception for 60 people on less than 2 weeks notice. We reserved the "living room" and the adjoining room and it was a great space for the number of people we had. There was no rental fee but there was a minimum, which we hit easily and which provided an unbelievable amount of great food and drink for our guests. They also accommodated our young nieces and nephews who were able to set up a board game on a table and have their own space to enjoy. The waitstaff were very attentive to them and everyone else. We received so many compliments on this evening -- what great luck that the other spot didn't work out! I would highly recommend holding an event here!Sent on 05/01/2017

Blackwall Hitch was incredible to work with! We held our small, 20 person wedding reception in the Gathering Room and everything was perfect. The wait staff the day of were INCREDIBLE! I can't say enough about the wait staff. We also had table side wine service which elevated the event. We had 3 food allergies, including myself as the bride and they were extremely conscious and knowledgeable. If you're having a small wedding I highly recommend this space.Sent on 04/02/2017
