We booked EWG before it had been built, but we couldn't be more happy with the outcome. The renderings developed when we first walked into the empty building were spot on to the final build! The chairs, linens, and sofas were all beautiful! The aesthetic of the place matched exactly what we were going for - rustic modern look. The lights were beautiful and set the mood all night.Sent on 24/09/2019
We dealt closely with Frances and she was very responsive and flexible throughout the entire process. Even with my constant emailing, she was always quick to reply and answer my questions - especially as we got closer to the date! If you're looking for a rustic feel but with a modern touch to it, EWG has it for you!

This was an amazing experience. Definitely not what I expected. The size of the space is incredible and the layout is fantastic. The bar staff were great in serving the food and drinks.Sent on 04/12/2019

We had an amazing experience at AWG. Our coordinator, Claire, was fantastic and had a great attention to detail. She was organized and efficient. The catering was incredibly delicious. I guessed gave so many compliments on the staff at the party as well. They were kind, helpful and keep things clean and organized throughout the party. Bar service was great as well.Sent on 03/12/2019

Thank you from the bottom of my heart
I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Frances and Rosa for their hard work and customer service, they promised us a perfect wedding and they delivered. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out, you ladies ROCK!Sent on 02/12/2019
Ever since we walked into this place we knew we will get married there. The space is gorgeous, it was amazing for a large wedding and it did not feel crowded at all whether inside the rustic venue or the cool lobby.
If you are planning a wedding definitely check out this place and you will not be disappointed
Thank you again to you ladies and to the entire team at EWG:)

No words! Absolute Pleasure
Isaac is an absolute pleasure and ease to work with! The venue speaks for itself; it's beautiful and perfect for bringing the downtown vibe to midtown. Isaac and his team at EWG, were hands down, the most amazing, professional and detail oriented team. My wife and I had an unforgettable night, as did our guests. We can't thank Claire and Isaac enough for everything. I would highly recommend this venue for any special occasion..Sent on 02/12/2019

Horrible, ruined my wedding
I recently had my wedding reception at EWG. If I could select NO STAR I would. We had an extremely horrible experience from start to finish.Sent on 02/12/2019
I paid for the upgraded bar package, only to have my bartenders quit an hour before my guest were to arrive . The venue bought in non trained bartenders which were severing shots out of water glasses causing alot of my guest to become very sick. No shot glasses available. No beer bottle opener available. Guest had to use keys to open beer.
I paid for the Cafe bar upgrade because without having this upgrade espresso is not served. The upgrade was described as having a barista onsite all night. Meanwhile the barista server was split between the cafe bar and serving food, which she ended up being covered in pasta sauce (looked like she was involved in a pasta fight) . Also espresso was beings served in large coffee mugs as there was no espresso cups available. My guest had to explain to the teenage girls what a espresso was and how to operate the machine.
Venue was over an hour late to open doors for vendors to set up day of wedding. Week of I was advised of shortage with my table linen choice, I selected another only to have mixed matched linens day of my wedding set up (on duty supervisor was advised and nothing was corrected.
I paid for the antipasto buffet bar, which was not served to the bride, groom, bridal party or parents. When asked at the beginning of dinner where our dishes were we were advised there wasn't any food left (again paid as an upgrade PER PERSON)
I paid for the upgraded duel meat dish to be served (red meat & chicken). Some guests were not served this plate at all, and some received two chickens instead. (Again paid as an upgrade PER PERSON) . Pasta dish was ICE cold and served without cheese or chillies on tables.
All waitstaff was extremely inexperienced. They hire all teenagers with no guidance or direction, so they all look like deers in headlights. When I asked about my wedding cake I was given a dirty looks and attitude .
I had given direction for how my wedding cake is to be served. I had 3 flavors, and only one was out for the guests. When I asked the supervisor Rosa to serve all flavors it took 45 minutes by then everyone had already ate the mid night food.
I paid for venue in full prior to event, and was advised if any issues we would be able to discuss after the event. Upon discussion we were offered a catered dinner, which is a slap in the face. I contacted the OWNER ISSAC DROOKMAN many times and have ALL gone unanswered. This venue does not care about their customers. I would NEVER recommend them to anyone and will make it known.
They have a venue with beautiful bones, but with NO professionalism they will ruin it.

Great from Start to Finish
Working with Isaac and Frances was amazing! the staff were all great from start to finish. I serviced this venue for our Wedding (approx. 280 guests) The set-up turned out great. Frances was very meticulous in all aspects:Sent on 02/12/2019
1. The food catering was long term business partners with the venue and they excelled in creating new menus that catered towards our event
2. She would give reminders throughout the whole process and kindly explain any odd/ special questions and requests you might have
3. abundant staff (they do not cheap out on their employees)
I strongly recommend the EWG1 if you are looking for something more modern than a regular/typical banquet hall midtown. (Its your money worth for sure)
