Turn your event dream into a reality.

This historic space has been outfitted with every modern amenity to be the ideal space to host functions of all kinds. We believe in providing a non-traditional venue so that our clients have more options to make the space uniquely their own. Without any decor, the soaring ceilings and cement walls feel "industrial chic" but clients can transform the space with glitz and glam, rustic touches, romantic lighting, modern lines, whimsical details, and vintage furniture. If you can dream it, it can be done at Olio.

We love to host weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, corporate meetings and parties, fundraisers and galas, photo shoots, banquets, trade shows and expos, classes, workshops, and retreats. Contact us today!

    Incredible!

    We loved the venue so much. It was extremely customizable and flexible. Sarah was extremely responsive and supportive through the whole experience. Lindsay was amazing the night of the event. Highly recommend this gorgeous space.

    Above and Beyond

    As what some would call a Corona Bride, having a wedding in 2020 has been a daunting and sometimes honestly depressing task. Until... We came across Olio and started working with Sarah. Sarah took away allllll of the stress and anxiety that my now Husband and I were feeling after canceling our initial wedding. She was patient, flexible, and all around supportive and helpful throughout the whole process. We ultimately planned and pulled off such an amazing wedding in just 6 weeks, in large part due to the help of Sarah and the flexibility that Olio offered. The space itself is stunning and really allows you to make any unique vision come true. I told Sarah I wanted lots of candles and romantic vibes, and she TRULY delivered, even beyond what I could have hoped for. The vendors she works with are also truly amazing and all around it was the best experience. I would highly recommend Olio to anybody & everybody!

    Non-traditional dream come true!

    Olio was the first and only wedding venue we toured after getting engaged in 2019. While we didn't know exactly what we wanted, we knew we were picturing something non-traditional that we could make our own and as soon as we saw Olio, we were sold. We booked our original date for April 2021 and made the decision to shift to the fall due to COVID rates. Sarah was super helpful in rescheduling our date to November 2021. As a venue owner, she's incredibly quick to respond to any and all questions and always has helpful vendor ideas. Everyone we hired at her recommendation was professional and easy to work with - including our afterparty at Granite Coast Brewing right down the block. We were married on a cold, rainy day (good luck for our marriage!) but inside Olio, it was warm and cozy. We brought in string lights, gold chiavari chairs, all white linens, bright florals, velvet lounge furniture and LOTS of candles. Our guests loved the beautiful, unique space with plenty of room to spread out for ceremony, cocktails, dinner and dancing - so important as we continue through the pandemic. At Olio, your dream wedding can become a reality!
