Fantastic venue with great support team!

We used the Pipe Shop as the venue for our wedding reception. It was an absolutely beautiful space with a lot of flexibility to make it your own. The venue team was very accommodating and willing to work with us throughout the planning process to bring our vision to life. I would not hesitate to recommend them for weddings or any event!
One thing to be aware of is that the city does sometimes plan events in the outdoor space right next to the venue - we had an outdoor concern taking place at the same time as our event, and could sometimes hear the music coming from outside. However, this was usually not a problem and when we had our own music playing you could not hear it.
