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

While it hasn’t been our wedding yet, working with Russell Simon as my sales and venue consultant has been an ABSOLUTE pleasure
The whole vibe of Upstairs Atlanta is as low-key to as fancy as you’d like to make it. The wedding we attended in September of 2019 helped us realize that we wanted to absolutely be married here for our own wedding on Halloween and the team is incredible. We can’t wait to see how our own wedding turns out and can’t thank them enough for making this such a smooth process.Sent on 11/01/2019

Awesome, affordable venue in heart of Atlanta
Kelsey Sanders, Russell Simon and the team at The Upstairs Atlanta have done a phenomenal job of creating a roomy yet intimate, classy yet intimate venue for all types of events. From the start, they communicated proactively about cost, decor and outside vendors. I loved that they were flexible to almost anything we could imagine. The outdoor space we utilized two vendors and in-house games of cornhole and big Jenga, for instance. Kelsey was able to build out a seating chart based on the number of attendees and help with the flow of cocktail hour, dinner and drinks. Our wedding reception sat around 120 and it was the perfect number for the size of the venue. If you're not familiar with the area, the venue is close to Ikea right off of Northside Drive. It's very accessible for guests coming from all directions in Atlanta, and also centrally located for guests going to after parties in Midtown/Buckhead/Westside or hotel blocks in Midtown/Downtown. All in all, we had a great experience. It checked all of the boxes for us as a venue and was a more intimate and affordable option than others in the area.Sent on 10/19/2019
