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!

    ALL the praise for Olio!

    We recently got married at Olio on New Year’s Eve and it truly was the best day of our lives, it was everything we could have dreamed of and so SO much more.

    Olio itself is so unique and charming, which is exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue. When you walk up the stairs, the size of the space alone is truly breathtaking. The original walls and features, gorgeous floors and massive windows add so much character, and the modern industrial vibe is something we didn’t even come close to finding at any other venue we toured. We knew immediately that Olio was our choice!

    Olio was the perfect wedding venue for us from start to finish and working with Sarah and her team was nothing short of AMAZING. Throughout our entire year and a half of planning, Sarah was extremely quick and kind to respond to any and all of my questions and concerns. We also hired her for her coordination services through Without A Hitch and it was one of our best decisions. She made sure our wedding day ran smoothly, she kept me calm and took into consideration all of our wants and needs. She truly made everything we wanted to happen, happen!

    It’s now been a couple weeks since our big day, and our guests are still talking about how amazing, beautiful and fun our wedding was! People are calling it the party of the year lol. I was born and raised in Peabody, and a large majority of our guests are also Peabody residents.. they truly couldn’t believe that this gem has been hidden right downtown!

    We are forever grateful for Olio and Sarah for giving us the best, most beautiful and perfect wedding that felt so much like US. My husband and I, our family and friends all truly made memories that will last a lifetime!

    Much love, The Baeta's

    Truly One of a Kind

    We knew from the moment we saw Olio online that it was the perfect venue for us. As a result it was the only venue we looked at before booking. We knew it was meant to be when the date we desperately wanted, 10.15.22, was the only Saturday they had left in October at the time that we booked. 

    We wanted an industrial space that was a blank canvas where we could create something unique. As a photographer and graphic designer I knew I didn't want our wedding to look just like everyone else's and Olio gave us the creative freedom to do just that. 

    The space is absolutely gorgeous with its soaring ceilings, concrete walls, abundant natural light and unique hardwood floors. Olio has everything you could possibly need, updated bathrooms on the first and second floor, a lift for accessibility, a comfortable office so the guests can't see the bride before the ceremony, abundant space for onsite ceremony and reception, and so much more. 

    We loved our initial tour with Sarah, her energy and passion is contagious and it was a delight to walk the space with her while learning about the history of the venue. Sarah is a true professional, she was so helpful throughout the entire process and she is so responsive to any request or question. We adored Sarah so much that we ended up booking her other company Without a Hitch for coordination as well. 

    We can't thank Sarah enough for all her help and we will happily recommend Olio and Without a Hitch to our friends and family in the future.

    Olio was our dream location for our wedding and were were SO thrilled to book there! The owner Sarah was super helpful (we hired her as a day of coordinator, too, through her company Without a Hitch) and we had such a beautiful wedding at OLIO!
