Perfect for a casual rehearsal or welcome dinner
My husband and I got married on a Saturday, but many hotels in the area that weekend had 2-night minimum stays. We wanted to give our guests somewhere to be on Friday night, but nothing too structured or formal because so many would be traveling in at all hours. We booked the Gas Light because we're big fans of pizza, it has great options for food and beverage packages, and it's right downtown if people want to hang out after.Sent on 11/17/2019
From first contact to the end of Friday night, Kate was extremely helpful in orchestrating the perfect event. The night club space is ideal for open, mingle-y and casual events like ours. 360 bar, tons of comfortable booth-style seating, cocktail tables to lean against, and a separate space where we could put our guest book (a quilt my husband's aunt made) and all the food.
I woefully underestimated how much our guests would eat before the pizza came out, and then the ovens weren't ready so there was a period where no food was available, but Kate and her bartenders were absolutely on top of it and once pizza was ready they kept it coming until everyone had some, so it all worked out in the end!
There are screens and a projector if you have AV elements to your event, but we chose to keep it simple with just a welcome message. We were also able to plug in our own music and brought our own decorations.
Kate was there to make sure everything went smoothly, especially during clean-up and the transition to night club (which I truly barely noticed). The bartenders were all extremely friendly and helpful too! It was the perfect place to kick off our wedding weekend in downtown Portsmouth.

A gaslight wedding!
I can’t begin to explain our incredible experience with Kate from the Gas Light in Portsmouth, NH. She was professional, kind, prompt, and understood our wedding vision. She was always available to speak with and answered every question. Kate set up the venue with some help from my sister-in-laws and some frantically handwritten scrap paper notes of my directions. She took everything I wanted and turned it into a classic, romantic, elegant wedding reception!! If you think that you can’t turn the third floor night club into your wedding venue, you are SORELY mistaken!! The beauty of the brick and mortar and the historic feel of the venue itself barely needs decorating, but Kate will gladly work with you to make your dream happen!
And the FOOD!!! Oh my god the food was excellent. Of course we have had many positive dining experiences at the Gas Light before our wedding, but we were nervous about ordering traditional wedding fare (which everyone knows can go either way!). We chose a buffet of their ‘sliders bar’ station, sides of mashed potatoes and green beans, and several varieties of their mouth watering brick oven pizzas - and they did not disappoint in the least! I was so impressed! We never ran out, either - there was always another hot pizza replacing an empty spot. Everyone raved about finally going to a wedding with GOOD food! I will not hesitate to recommend the Gas Light as a potential wedding venue, or for any other kind of wedding celebration!
We can’t thank Kate and the Gas Light team enough for making our wedding dreams a reality!Sent on 10/21/2018
