As of 2024, Front & Palmer will no longer be taking new bookings. After an incredible 15 years in this space, our venue will be closing its doors. Feast Your Eyes, the exclusive caterer of Front & Palmer, will be moving into a new space to further support our evolving business.

Feast Your Eyes is still taking wedding bookings at our other exclusive and preferred spaces. Be sure to check out our "sister" venue, FAME. Please visit our website (www.feastyoureyescatering.com) or contact us at info@feastyoureyescatering.com for more information.

Located in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood, Front & Palmer is a longtime favorite in the industrial wedding venue scene. Formerly a pickle barrel factory, Front & Palmer combines modern and historic elements for an unforgettable setting.

On the second level, the converted loft serves as the main event space with original steel rafters sprawling across the 35’ ceilings. Adjacent to the main space is a lounge area with a connecting hospitality suite, perfect for couples needing a private retreat during their celebration. Throughout the venue, you’ll also find beautifully restored hardwood floors, artistic furniture made from reclaimed materials of the building, and art chandeliers made by local artists.

Feast Your Eyes Catering, the exclusive caterer of Front & Palmer, operates from the on-site kitchen on the first floor. Their seasoned team of event professionals handle all the details, including timeline, tables and chairs, rental equipment, staffing, and a customized menu tailored to you. Front & Palmer can comfortably host 220 guests for a seated dinner and dancing, and 325+ cocktail receptions.

Amazing everything honestly 10/10, A++++, any superlative you can think of

Never been married before, so I can’t really speak for how other places to do things or what should be expected etc.

BUT I can say with absolute certainty that Front and Palmer helped us a ridiculous amount with pretty much everything. Our wedding coordinator/event specialist Rylee was like an angel. Sent down from heaven to help us plan/coordinate/make decisions/generally be available when I emailed her a million times/make sure things ran smoothly on the day of the wedding.

My sister who is recently married felt that she did an excellent job, and was way better than her wedding coordinator for what it’s worth ?? Rylee was just so nice and available, and I would recommend her 100/100 times.

As far as the venue itself, the aesthetic itself is exactly what we wanted. The lighting was warm, the size was almost too perfect for our number (about 170 ended up coming). It was intimate, but didn’t feel like we were on top of each other.

But I’m just like a light snob I guess, and we had candles with open flames, warm yellow lighting, up lighting on the pillars, a wash on the wall.

Wood floors, exposed brick, candle light. Just delightful from a mood perspective.

As far as the food - holy moly. There was a large Muslim contingent at our wedding, so asked specifically for halal. The chef is a Moroccan named Mus, and he delivered x100000000. He was able to arrange for halal everything (except the duck, they basically don’t exist as halal) and it was amazing. The steak and lamb were all halal. All the cocktail hour stuff was halal. It was fantastic.

As far as the service goes - also amazing. They were very well staffed. All the guests I spoke to felt they got their food in a timely manner without any hiccups and anything they needed was provided. Just extremely attentive. My dad in particular was kind of shocked how good the service was.

Anyway, I would recommend literally everyone to at least just check it out. And if you want excellent food and service and help making the wedding planning stream lined - this is the spot. We didn’t have to contact 10,000 vendors. All the food and lighting is in house. The vendors we did contract like our DJ and photographer and videographer and floral designer were able to set up and do their thing. They have a well oiled machine here.

I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. PLUS if you’re trying to do things after your wedding, you’re in fishtown and close to places like evil genius, lmno etc etc. so walking was a breeze. We went to evil genius.

Okay this was a long review. 10/10. Get married here, you won’t regret it.

Beautiful Retro Disco Industrial Reception Venue

Front & Palmer was absolutely amazing to work with. We had a reception only with 85 people for 5 hours total, 1 hour cocktail hour, 4 hour reception. We paid $197/person for 5 passed appetizers and 1 stationary, 2 signature drinks, and HUGE dinner portions. We chose mini desserts instead of a cake; they were stationary and passed! Rylee was an amazing contact and venue coordinator. I highly recommend booking here for an indoor moody or light and airy vibe (their lighting is one of the reasons we chose the venue). You can do anything you want with this space and they have a 35-40 car parking lot in the heart of Fishtown, which is super helpful to guests!

A night to remember

We couldn't have imagined how beautiful our wedding turned out to be. Rylee and the team at Front and Palmer made or experience unforgettable. They were incredible responsive and flexible leading up to the day of our wedding and took such great care of us during the ceremony and reception. Our guests couldn't stop talking about the food and how beautiful the space was for weeks after the wedding. If I could do it all again, there is no doubt that I would pick Front and Palmer
