    Excellent Service.

    We celebrated our daughter’s wedding and reception and everything was fabulous ! The event space was spectacular for a 6:00 wedding held on September 29th. Christine made sure we had everything we needed to make the event special. Service was remarkable. Thank you to Christine & Nick for making our daughter’s wedding so special .

    We were very hesitant with booking with The Urban Event after reading many bad reviews but I absolutely fell in love with the venue the moment I walked it. I was so worried after reading the reviews that I toured close to 15 different venues. No others could even compare so we decided that we would "risk it" and book with the urban event. We could not be any happier that we did. The whole process leading up to the wedding went very smooth. Any questions that we had were answered quickly and they made sure that the set up was exactly what we wanted. The only hang up that we had was the elevator wouldn't open on some of the floors so we had to take the stairs. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose the urban event everytime. I would highly recommend the first floor/basement as our wedding couldn't be more perfect.
