Rent The Warehouse at 17th Street

17ST_WeddingCateringAD-2January and February are busy months for booking The Warehouse for weddings, reunions, fundraisers, and all sorts of celebrations. This is also where we hold our OnCue Consulting seminars, and Ken Goodman beautifully captured some details from our recent Whole Hog Extravaganza.

Warehouse_05Exposed brick walls and duct work with touches of warm wood and lots of twinkling lights make the room feel festive and welcoming.

Warehouse_07Showstopper. The table is designed with red ticking and solid tablecloths layered over black with a built-up display of natural wood, vintage items, and fresh flowers and greenery. An antique ladder, draped with tea-stained bunting, antlers, and greenery finished off this stunning display.

Warehouse_14You can rent a huge variety of decorative items from our extensive prop room. Becky Streuter, our catering manager, has quite the eye for collecting unusual pieces that will elevate your event and make it extra special.

    I’m interested in renting the warehouse at 17th Street for August 3rd. I would like to know the rental cost and food prices for a party for my son who is a retiring commander from the pentagon. This party is to honor him and welcome him home! We plan on music and dancing. Please contact me with information regarding rental and food fees.
