History

This establishment is the former home of Western Wire and is the product of a redesign that enhanced the 19th-century brick structure. The entire complex went through a renovation in 2001, resulting in the rebranding of the restaurant into what it is today. Bethany Budde had spearheaded this operation and continues to run the thriving business.

    best decision you'll make

    SqWires is phenomenal. My husband and I still comment on how they were easily one of the best vendors to work with. We held our rehearsal dinner and a welcome event for all our guests the day before our wedding. Meredith and Bethany made us feel stressfree the whole way through. As we encountered hiccups, SqWires was always accommodating and focused on removing stress. Meredith was so detail oriented and helped us make decisions that stayed true to our vision and budget.

    SqWires’ service, food, and drinks were fantastic without breaking the bank. Choosing SqWires was one of our best choices!

    We hosted our Wedding Ceremony and Reception at SqWires Annex and couldn't be happier with the result. From inital inquiry until the end of the evening Ashley was kind, professional, and responsive. During the ceremony reheasal she ensured we covered every single detail. On the day of, she was by my side to help with cues for ceremony, transitioning rooms for a cocktail hour, as well as flipping the Annex from a Ceremony to Reception setup. All of our guests were extremely happy with the catering and loved the look of the room. I would recommend it for any event!

Landolfi String Quartet and Ensemble Landolfi String Quartet and Ensemble Wedding Musicians

Landolfi Quartet played a wedding reception at Sqwires which was really a wonderful venue! It is spacious with a warm feeling. The buffet was exceptional. The area where the quartet played was comfortable and we could be heard and seen. Not that we have egos but when clients hire a string quartet that is usually important to them. We highly recommend this venue for weddings that want a warm, friendly feel with great food.
