Highly recommend!

Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with for our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception. We loved the natural beauty of the space, light above the dinner space, hardwood floors, and exposed brick. Mike was very responsive to emails and so helpful with anything we needed. We loved that we got to bring in whatever food and alcohol we wanted.

an intimate affair

As a wedding planner, I am happy to recommend HQ for other brides!! It's the perfect venue for an intimate wedding with a beautiful brick interior. The staff are more than accommodating & pleasant to work with & I look forward to working with them again next year! The wedding we hosted together in early October had roughly 80 guests, catered buffet style food, & a night full of music & enjoyment. Perfect venue for quaint gatherings ❤

Perfect venue for wedding!

Headquarters is the PERFECT venue for a wedding celebration on the small side. We held our ceremony and reception of about 50 people here and it truly could not have gone better. The owner, Mike, was very helpful and communicative after we postponed due to Covid, and with many questions I had while planning the wedding from across the country. The venue is great if you are interested in DIY/something very personal. We were able to decorate how we wanted (big thanks to HQ staff member, Faith!), and bring in our own food and alcohol. There were no strange limitations or restrictions placed on us like there would have been at other venues. Less than a week after the wedding and we are already thinking about future events we want to have at Headquarters. TRULY THE BEST!
