About Headquarters Event Center

Headquarters Event Center is a cozy historic wedding venue for couples planning a wedding in the Cincinnati, Ohio or Northern Kentucky area. This location was originally constructed as a hardware store in 1870, but has since been restored by owner Mike Smith. Today it maintains all of its traditional 1800s charm, with the modern amenities couples desire. This venue, located in downtown Newport, sits just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, Ohio. It is within walking distance from tons of hotels, bars, restaurants, and entertainment.

    They SAVED our wedding day

    I’m not even sure where to start, of all our wedding day vendors none of them really left me emotional, but Mike did, and for great reason. Just 10 days prior to our wedding day, our previous reception space vendor dropped a bomb on us, we would now be sharing our reception space with the general public (!!!!!!!), this was not an option for us. While I was in another state, on my Bachelorette getaway with my girls, my (then) Fiancé reached out to view the HQ space and Mike made himself available THAT day. Within 4 hours, we found a cheaper, more beautiful space with Headquarters than our previous location and were locked into our contract with him within hours. Mike literally saved our wedding reception and I returned from my trip, went straight to the venue and fell in love myself!
    This space is absolutely amazing, the elegance and different possibilities for everyone’s different styles is endless. We showed a few videos during our reception so we loved that we had the ability to show them in both areas for all guests to see. Mike made himself available for us to decorate that morning, stayed with us throughout the night and even helped us remove the two head tables after dinner to create more dance floor space. I was a little worried at first about the community seating but it actually was pretty perfect and kept our dance floor popping throughout the night.
    Mike is so professional, so helpful, and just a really great person! Words will never be enough to thank him and we will never forget what he did for us. Thank you so much!!!
