    Perfect venue

    Upstairs at Midtown was the perfect place for our wedding. The staff was PHENOMENAL. They helped us every step of the way in planning and made us feel extremely safe in the midst of a pandemic. From the food, to the drinks, and the entire set up, Upstairs at Midtown is and was exceptional. Highly recommend!!

    Wedding Day of our Dreams

    My husband and I chose Upstairs at Midtown for our August 15th, 2020 wedding day, and we truly could not have chosen a more perfect setting and team to help bring our dreams to reality. We actually had to completely change our wedding plans due to Covid, and booked Upstairs at Midtown roughly a month out from our day, and both Kathleen and Sofie made the entire process as stress-free as possible, guiding us through every step, sending out friendly reminders as we got closer to our day, and ensuring we were fully taken care of on our wedding day. The entire team went above and beyond to take care of not only myself and my husband, but also all of our guests. I hadn't even reached the door when one of their kind servers made sure to get my drink of choice, and they ensured we had a drink in our hands all evening without ever having to ask. Sofie was extremely on top of things, and helped coordinate every step of the evening for us - she is incredibly sweet and kind, and helped to keep me calm when I was stressed! The food was INCREDIBLE and my guests are still raving about it! The venue itself is absolutely stunning and truly doesn't need much of anything to be beautiful, and was the perfect backdrop for our intimate 30 person event. Weeks later, my husband and I still can't stop talking about how amazing our day was, and so much of that is thanks to the King Street Hospitality team.
