Wedding beyond our wildest dreams!!!!

Where do I even begin? Bottom Lounge was the absolute perfect venue to host our dream wedding! We knew we wanted to get married in the city and Bottom Lounge perfectly fit our vibes. The space itself is unique, intimate, casual, yet elegant at the same time. Their pricing is also extremely affordable and you get so much built in for the low price. Food was absolutely AMAZING (the best I've had at any wedding) and the drink selection for the open bar was very much enjoyed by our guests.

The best part of our experience was working with Natalie the venue coordinator who we also hired for our day of coordination. She meticulously put together our timeline and made us feel at ease during the entire planning process. On the actual day, Natalie and her team orchestrated everything seamlessly, allowing us to fully savor the joy of the moment without worrying about a single thing.

Also, Natalie's contribution to the decor setup went waaaay above and beyond our wildest expectations. We handed over our DIY decor, and she worked her magic, elevating it to an entirely new level of breathtaking. We were in awe, and numerous guests echoed our sentiments saying it the best wedding and venue they'd ever been to!

To any future couples debating on booking Bottom Lounge, I promise you won't regret it!

Bottom lounge was amazing!

We had our wedding in October at Bottom Lounge and it couldn’t have been anymore perfect! Natalie is an absolute dream to work with and makes the whole planning process fun and easy. Natalie is also there for your entire wedding to make sure everything goes smoothly and maintains the timeline. The rest of the staff was also so amazing… so kind and great at what they do! Food was delicious! Bottom lounge has an awesome sound system which ended up saving us some money since our DJ didn’t have to bring as much equipment! Plus, the space is great and includes the outdoor deck area! You won’t regret having your wedding at bottom lounge!!!
