The Reliquary is located in Cincinnati, Ohio in a historic church sanctuary space that is also home to Urban Artifact, a craft brewery that specializes in delicious tart and wild beers. The church has been used for special events since 1876 and we would like you to help us continue the tradition. We’re in the middle of a long-term rehabilitation of this fantastic space to improve accessibility, safety, flexibility, and comfort… and would like YOU to be a part of this project. A portion of any event rental goes directly to the renovations and stabilization of the historic structure.

My grandparents were married here over 70 years ago when it was St. Patrick's church. So naturally, I was interested in having our wedding here. The venue has the perfect amount of wear and tear that adds to the charm and atmosphere I was looking for. It was a dream wedding and I couldn't have been happier with our decision! It is warm inside because it is such a huge venue with not very good air flow, but with fan rentals it was comfortable. I would highly recommend this venue to a bride that wants to have a lot of control and say on how their wedding goes.Sent on 08/22/2018

We just recently got married at Urban Artifact, the venue was incredibly beautiful and Emma the wedding coordinator did a great job! The only downside is the venue is relatively new so they are still learning the process of hosting events, communication at times was very poor and it made planning much more stressful than it needed to be. That being said, the wedding day went off without a hitch and the staff at the wedding were great!Sent on 05/28/2017

I recently had my winter wedding at this venue and I will say it was very beautiful. However, there were a lot of communication issues with this event space.Sent on 12/23/2018
It's important to know that the event space (venue), the bar, and the table/chair rental company (Queen City Vignette) are all different entities operating out of the same space. I was very confused in the early stages of planning when I would receive emails from the bar or from QCV and didn't know who I was talking to about what.
On that note, QCV definitely improved their booking process and overall communication so thank you ladies for that. The rest of the review is not about you,
I had loads of communication issues with the venue itself and in particular with the alcohol/bartending package. Many emails went unanswered, I never received an updated invoice, and I had to request a receipt the day after my wedding to make sure I could cut ties with the bartending staff at UA. Tyler tried to make amends by altering our alcohol package after missing a meeting with us that I confirmed twice. On my wedding day, a different person was there and it was as if she had never communicated with Tyler about any of it. That was just the thing working with Urban Artifact, I never knew who was emailing me or who I was talking to and they didn't appear to communicate with each other either. It's really a shame because it's a stunning event space and our wedding eventually kicked off without any issue....but I owe that mostly to my amazing wedding coordinators (which I HIGHLY recommend for this space). I hope Urabn Artifact can work through these issues and explain in better detail to future couples how their event space works
We love, love, love this venue. It is one of the most gorgeous places I've seen and the beer is the best!!!!! Could not recommend this venue more!
