I mean the space speaks for itself. Its beautiful and different from anywhere else around. You can have your ceremony, reception, and cocktail hour there comfortably, the location is convenient, and parking is free and ubers are cheap to downtown Indy. But what makes this place amazing is the people who run it! I was supposed to get married in May, but due to COVID postponed to August. They were so accommodating, were incredibly flexible working with me on setting a new date, and were super responsive and kind during such a crazy time. After hearing horror stories from other brides about venues upcharging them or not giving deposits back after postponing due to COVID, I was so happy I made the decision to book Tinker. I can't recommend them enough!Sent on 09/07/2020

Perfect Space For Wedding Reception Near Downtown Indy
The minute my husband (then fiancé) stepped into Tinker, we knew it was the perfect place for our reception - in fact this is the only place we looked at. We initially met with Mo, who gave us a tour of the beautiful building. The event space is gorgeous. The bar, light fixtures, bridal room, the natural light from the windows, the exposed brick and amazing view of the city from the balcony makes not only a great atmosphere to celebrate in, but also a great atmosphere to have photos taken. The added bonus to this space is the trendy, sweet, and fun coffee shop (Provider) on the first level. We rented that space out for our cocktail hour and it was perfect. Our guests loved having the outdoor patio space. Nevertheless, the team behind the scenes is what makes this place so special. We worked with several different people throughout our planning and every person was extremely responsive to questions we had and were always willing to meet in person. Our day-of-coordinator, Robin, had everything set-up just as we imagined, kept our timeline on schedule, and made day easy for us. Overall, the night was flawless. Having Tinker as our reception venue was one of the best and easiest decisions we made and we cannot give a higher recommendation!Sent on 05/15/2020
