    My husband and I held our wedding reception at the Figge Art Museum and have nothing but praise for Dave, Dave and all their staff. They worked beautifully with the other vendors we hired, set up and tore down everything for my family, leaving only the loading of the decorations into the vehicles for us. The food was AMAZING and they even prepared extra food for my husband and I to eat later on! Dave worked so well with us as we were planning this wedding from 200 miles away. He responded to emails and made sure everything ran smoothly. I would highly recommend this venue to any bride that is looking to have their reception in the Quad Cities. It was worth every penny we spent.

    The Figge was the perfect place to have our wedding reception. They have a beautiful view and was a great location for our out of town guests. The David's were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and willing to accommodate any request we had. We would highly recommend this location for any special event.

    The Figge is a stunning venue and surprisingly affordable. The tall ceilings and ever changing artwork make an effortlessly beautiful venue. Bonus: this venue comes with in-house catering and the chef is amazing! We got many compliments on the food and Chef Steve worked hard to accomodate off-menu requests such as an apple cider bar with doughnut holes and a custom vegetarian dish. You have to purchase alcohol through the Figge's vendors, but we were able to get kegs from Bent River, so no complaints there!
