Tinker House Events is a wedding reception venue that is located in Indianapolis, Indiana. This desirable destination is on the second floor of The Tinker House, along the Monon Trail and 16th Street. The original appeal of this building remains intact, drawing in visitors from far and wide who appreciate historic structures. The aesthetic of the establishment exudes an industrial charm, amplified by exposed brick walls and hanging light fixtures. This refurbished space boasts plenty of elements that entertain guests, including barrel tables, light-filled windows, and wide-plank hardwood floors.

Facilities and Capacity

This venue is home to a total of 4000 square feet. It shares the rest of its floor space with other well-known businesses. These are establishments such as Hotel Tango Distillery and Provider Coffee. Patrons who visit here will be able to view the city skyline from the abundant windows that line the walls. Bookings for celebrations at this property provide enough space for up to 200 seated guests. That number is boosted to 230 for standing occasions. A typical wedding occasion set up in this building includes 20 guest tables as well as space for entertainment and a dance floor.

Services Offered

Tinker House Events has hosted over 200 events and the number keeps counting. They allow clients to rent out function space for up to 12 hours with additional hours available. The building is heated and air-conditioned, meaning that the whole party will feel comfortable during the attendance of a celebration. The betrothed will have the option to select a caterer from a preferred list and they are welcome to bring in their own unique decor. They are also given the leeway to choose their own DJ entertainment, meaning that they will hear the music that they want to listen to all night long. Each event is evaluated on an individual basis. If couples are curious about the requirement for insurance or additional details on packages and services, they may reach out to the venue for information.

    Beautiful Venue in Indy!

    Working with Tinker House was a dream! When we were first looking at venues, it was very easy to set up a time to visit the space and later, when we were trying to figure out our date, our contact, Christine, was helpful through the whole process! She was able to help us with floor layouts and even recommended some of their favorite vendors who are familiar with the space and are great to work with! It is now ~2 weeks after our wedding and we are still getting so many compliments about the space - it is above a coffee shop that my husband and I adore, has exposed brick and the most incredible lighting. It was exactly the vibe we were looking for!

    Tinker House Events's reply:

    Hello, Cory + Leanna!
    Thank you so much for the thoughtful review. We absolutely loved hosting your special day! Please keep us in mind for future events as you continue your journey together. Keep in touch ◡̈
