    Unique Wedding Venue

    We used the Skyline Loft at Bridgeport Art Center and it was such a unique venue to have for our wedding reception. The venue is in great condition, has amazing views of the city, encompassed a warehouse style and has unique characteristics like their freight elevator that takes guests up to the Skyline Loft and you can have a bar on it. Would highly recommend.

    Gorgeous, special space!

    Skyline Loft is a gorgeous space for any special event. We had our wedding there in February -- our guests were blown away by the same things that we loved about it, namely, the incredible freight elevator (with a bar! and a chandelier!), the incredible view of the city, and the warmth of the space. The BAC team was very easy to work with, as well. We're grateful for our lovely day at Skyline!
