About The Space Downtown

Fall 2017 dates STILL AVAILABLE

With this premier location in historic downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, The Space Downtown prides itself on providing an exceptional venue for groups of all sizes. The Space Downtown is ideal for any wedding up to 150 guests!

The Space Downtown was created in late 2010 by owners chefs Tim Burgess and Vincent Derquenne. The two have been partners since 1991, creating their first restaurant Metropolitain which operated in the same location as the Space. It closed in 2003 and the chef pair sold the restaurant but remained owners of the building. In early 2010, the location became vacant and the two decided to open for private parties only.

    Highly recommend!

    We had our rehearsal dinner here on September 2019 and we could not have been happier. It is a beautiful space and what is really nice is that they have an in-house chef and kitchen so there is no need to bring in an outside caterer. Also, instead of simply choosing things from a menu, you work with them to customize what you want to serve. And the food was excellent!

    Laura was excellent to work with and very accommodating. We are very happy that we chose to have our rehearsal dinner here!

    This review is for BANG! (owned by same)

    Bang! is the same ownership as The Space Downtown. We were able to reserve their covered back patio for our rehearsal dinner of ~30 people. It was perfect and the food (served family style) was delicious. We had a blast!

    Small wedding reception

    The Space was the perfect venue for our small wedding reception. The atmosphere was great; I loved the exposed brick walls and the “lounge seating” near the dance floor, my husband loved the paper lantern lights and the outside areas. Everybody loved the food; it was beyond our expectations and we received so many compliments after dinner. Perhaps the best part, though, was working with Laura. She was wonderful. From helping me relax about all the small details leading up to the wedding, to making sure everything was taken care of on the day-of – I’m not sure we could have survived without her! We can’t recommend The Space enough. Truly a 5 star experience!
