    We could not have asked for a more perfect venue or a more professional, responsive and hard-working coordinator. Sarah was AMAZING. She was so helpful in answering all of my questions (I had A LOT) and got back to us right away. She helped to work out with me the best way to drop off our decorations/cake and was SO accommodating. On the day of, I did not have a worry in the world because I knew she was handling it. I recommend having a band at this venue because the stage is incredible. We essentially invited our friends to a concert, which is exactly what we wanted. Because of the uniqueness of the venue, we did very little of our own decorations which was a huge time and cost saver. The lighting in the venue is gorgeous so if you just had that, it is already 1000x cooler than any other place. We opted to do the dinner stations and everything was awesome because it was customization for our guests. Every single request I had was fulfilled and I could have not asked for a better day, team or venue.

    We cannot say enough about the experience we had at World Café Live at The Queen for our wedding. We knew we didn’t want a typical venue for our reception and the queen checked all of our boxes. We had a band and the sound and lighting folks were so professional – volume was just right and the lighting made the room look magical. Our guests are still raving about the venue and the food. It’s common to be so tied up on your wedding day that you don’t eat, but my husband and I made sure we ate and we’re so glad we did! My husband actually went back for seconds it was so good. Guests were also so impressed by the expansive full bar that was provided and the awesome service. Allison, the wedding coordinator, was simply amazing. She went above and beyond to be accommodating to our requests and make our wedding truly feel like ours. She was so responsive throughout the planning process and never made me feel like my requests were a nuisance. She stayed around for most of the reception making sure my husband and I had everything we needed. Our parents kept commenting on how amazing Allison and the rest of the staff were as well. If anything didn’t run smoothly that night I sure as heck didn’t know about it! And that’s the sign of a GREAT venue, they handled everything for that day so we could just focus on the people and the party. The venue is stunning and has so much character, the staff is amazing, the food was delicious, the after party (which we had in the bar on the street level) keep the party going, the sound and lighting was beyond professional and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! I can’t say enough about this venue and these people who made our day so incredibly perfect.

Sarah was super helpful with everything throughout the planning process and made sure we were happy and fed during the wedding.
