    Beautiful Venue + Phenomenal Customer Service!

    The Center is a beautiful venue with a wonderful team running it. Throughout the year and a half of planning our wedding, they have been helpful each step of the way. The venue itself is gorgeous and in one of the most beautiful parts of downtown Cincinnati. The venue is perfect for having a ceremony and reception, with the front lobby perfect for a cocktail hour. The new bar is gorgeous, too! The team at the center has been great to work with - Katie, our event coordinator, has been helpful, responsive, and incredibly organized. I am a planner and control freak by nature, and she put me completely at ease with the amount of detail included each step of the way. Elena has been incredibly accommodating and helpful. After a few minor hiccups, the team went completely above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied with everything, and we definitely are. It has been the best customer service we have received from all of our wedding vendors. All around, it has been a phenomenal experience. I would highly recommend (and have to friends already) this venue and team!

    We LOVE catering to the Center! Not only is it the hippest new venue in downtown Cincinnati, but the Center gals are great to work with.

    Although The Center is a relative "New Comer" to the event world, they have hit the ground running. Not only do they have prime real estate on 5th, over looking Fountain Square, but they have such a unique look and feel to their space. Having the opportunity to work with them, I have seen nothing but professionalism, and grace in all of their procedures. We are so happy to have another amazing venue in the downtown area and we look forward to working with The Center for many years to come.
