Upstairs Atlanta Goes Above and Beyond!
We cannot thank Upstairs Atlanta enough (thank you doesn't even really do it justice) for their time, support, availability, flexibility, and overall awesomeness! They truly made the entire process so enjoyable, from start to finish. The entire team was incredible and the whole day and evening was seamless. The welcomed every phone call and every meeting with open arms. We highly recommend Upstairs Atlanta for any event!Sent on 04/29/2019

We had our wedding a few weeks ago at Upstairs Atlanta and it was absolutely perfect! The venue is beautiful and such a great location. We had the best experience working with Kelsey and the entire team at Upstairs. Kelsey is very responsive and remembered every small detail about our day. I would recommend Upstairs for any event!Sent on 05/09/2019

We cannot thank Upstairs Atlanta enough for hosting our wedding of 140 guests! They hired their own additional staff to accommodate our large party and truly there wasn’t anything we couldn’t ask and they wouldn’t accommodate. Plus, it’s BYOB, I repeat, it’s BYOB for a wedding!Sent on 08/17/2018
They provided long rectangle farm tables that seat 8 guests each, tolix chairs (up to 150), high tops for the cocktail hour, a bar inside and outside, a lounge area, friendly bar staff, and the mixers were part of an all-inclusive rate. Definitely request a quote, you will be blown away by the pricing.
A nice bonus if you need, is a room full of random decor you could borrow if you don’t feel like spending money on extra stuff.
They also had a stunning bridal suite and views of the Atlanta skyline from their parking lot! These perks came in handy for our photos.
Side note: parking is minimal, but if you plan to party, Uber/Lyft anyways. We did and we didn’t need to use their additional lot next door, which is an option for a fee.
Best venue in Atlanta if you’re looking for BYOB with a great in house team. The space is very versatile, so you can create almost anything in there!
Very Professional and Highly Recommended.
