About

Up to 300 guests

The Vault sits at 35 East Gay Street in downtown Columbus and is rich with history. It was originally The National Commerce Bank in the 1920's and it has served many different uses over the years included the State Auditor's office and The Ohio Bell business building. We are located on a portion of Gay Street that remains the last downtown stretch which has all the building from the turn of the century still intact. The signature of the facility, the actual bank vault from the 20's, is used as a bar area and brings a uniqueness for those looking for something different. The balcony offers an ideal location for newlyweds to be announced before descending down the grand staircase into the ballroom. The giant chandelier and arching to the 40 ft. ceiling round off a historic and elegant presentation.

    The vault was great through our pandemic wedding

    Our guests raved about how nice the venue was! It’s very beautiful and affordable. The grand staircase makes for a very cool bridal party entrance. The chandelier and historic bank vault make the space feel very grand and expensive. The space is huge and fit our 150 guests perfectly.

    You can’t beat the location - it’s next to several hotels and my guests LOVED that it was in the same building as Pub Mahone. The street was lively during the night of our wedding. Guests felt safe walking down the street to the Renaissance hotel where we had a block.


    Bentley, the vault manager is a really personable guy who cares about his couples. He was very transparent with his pricing and didn’t try to stick us after rescheduling due to the pandemic. He was flexible with what we wanted - we added white claws to our drink package and he bought all the ingredients for the special cocktails we wanted. He was responsive to our questions and we really enjoyed working with him.

    A Wedding Venue Hero!

    When our original venue went bankrupt, Bentley from the Vault came to our rescue. Within 48 hours of losing our first venue and deposit, we had a new venue at an even better price. Bentley is willing to work with you and any set up that you wish. It was a pleasure to talk through details and hear all of his crazy stories! He even was able to connect us with a new caterer too! The venue itself is such a unique place, and we and our guests had an amazing time during our ceremony and reception!

    My husband and I got married on 6/16/18 this year at the Vault. We were extremely blessed to work with Blayke and the rest of the staff. Her communication was outstanding and I honestly could not have planned my big day without all of her help. We had compliments from all of our guests about how gorgeous and unique the venue was. My husband and I fell in love with this venue the moment we walked through the doors! I would 100% recommend the Vault!!
