About

On WeddingWire since 2017

Louisville Water Tower is a historic venue in Louisville, Kentucky. With original architecture, a brass spiral staircase, and spectacular views overlooking the Ohio River, this venue is an ideal location for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and elopements, as well as engagement parties and rehearsal dinners.

Please note that to meet the “towering expectations” of the future, Louisville Water Tower is undergoing major renovations during 2023. The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023. When it reopens, guests will enjoy a stylish, versatile, and acoustic-friendly indoor facility, and they will enjoy a breathtakingly beautiful historic tower, restored to its original elegance.

Louisville Water Tower looks forward to welcoming wedding and event bookings for 2024.

Facilities and Capacity

The 2,200-square-foot Grand Hall features a ceiling rising almost 50 feet above the floor, as well as large, ornate windows that flood the area with natural light. The Riverside Lawn & Terrace is a waterfront event space that boasts beautiful views of the Ohio River. This space allows couples to host an event entirely outdoors, or add an indoor and outdoor seating option for guests. Water Tower Plaza is a unique place to hold a ceremony or reception, as the 1860s structure is one of the oldest standing water towers in the area. Depending on the space used and the occasion, couples may invite up to 300 loved ones to celebrate with them.

Louisville Water Tower was amazing!

The Louisville Water Tower was an amazing venue to work with! I booked the venue over a year in advance and consulted with Megan numerous times leading up to the big day. Megan answered all my questions promptly and professionally. Everything went amazing on our wedding day and guests still tell me how beautiful our venue was!
