Perfect Venue for a Perfect Wedding

Loved working with the staff at Steam Whistle - they were very professional and responsive. As a venue we've frequented often we wanted our wedding to be a magical experience - and it was!

Dream Wedding Venue!

Steam Whistle was our perfect wedding venue! We were married in Pilsner Hall and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. It was everything we were hoping it would be. Sonia, Sam, Ryan and the whole Steam Whistle crew were so incredible to deal with and so helpful during all of the ups and downs of Covid. All of the staff on the night were amazing, and all of their associated and preferred vendors were great. You can't beat the location, views, or the vibe of the brewery. We can't recommend Steam Whistle highly enough, we couldn't have imagined a better wedding!

Dream wedding

We would not have been able to have a wedding without all your help and support. It was like a dream!
How amazing to have a wedding in this beautiful place at the heart of Toronto! Stunning flowers and lovely balloons were just perfect. 
The most important thing is professional and kind staff! You are the charm of Steamwhistle! We were touched by your service. Thank you for making our wedding so pleasant and special.

Exactly what we wanted

Steam Whistle was professional and helpful through our whole process. Through the year and a half of planning we did go through at least 3 coordinators for our event, but they always seemed to know everything anyways. We wanted a venue downtown for our international guests to see "TORONTO" and they definitely got that. We had numerous compliments on the venue and all the vendors preferred by Steam Whistle were excellent. We felt well taken care of and are happy we chose Steam Whistle. We would highly recommend this venue for ceremony and reception.

Life savers!

We had to move our wedding to Steam Whistle after our Kingston ON venue cancelled on us due to COVID. We are so glad that we did. They are absolute professionals and were incredibly responsive and caring throughout the experience. Jen in particular is an absolute rockstar and went above and beyond. Tanya, the director, is also extremely good at what she does. The space itself is beautiful - we only had 73 people and Locomotive Hall still felt warm and inviting. Can't say enough about the whole experience!

Perfect Wedding !

My husband and I got married at Steamwhistle Brewery on September 18, 2021 in the locomotive hall and we were absolutely blown away! We planned our wedding over a span of 2 years and when the pandemic hit Samantha (Senior Event Co Ordinator at Steamwhistle) and her team made the planning process so easy leading up to the big day! Samantha was so organized and informative on venue protocols and Ryan was our Venue Supervisor on the day of and the attention we received from him and everyone at Steamwhistle was above and beyond! The venue itself was such a hit with all our guests, everyone felt safe in the large space and great size patio and everything ran so smoothly! We are still raving about how amazing the Steamwhistle team was and will continue to share our amazing experience with all our friends and family planning an event at Steamwhistle. We hope to be guests at another Steamwhistle wedding in the near future and wish everyone at Steamwhistle all the best!

Great team

The team at Steam Whistle was extremely helpful when we had to postpone our wedding ceremony & reception due to COVID. They worked with us to transform the space into a tropical paradise. Our guests were raving about the experience.

Dream wedding venue!

Steam Whistle Brewing had been our dream venue for 10 years that my now husband and I thought we could never afford. We had looked at a few other venues and while we thought they were nice, nothing clicked with us quite like Steam Whistle did. After working out the details of their contract, we took the plunge and decided that we should just go for it. What won us over was the little restrictions they offered. While we had only a select number of vendors that we could choose from, there was no minimum spend and no restrictions on minimum number of guests (we had a smallish wedding of 100 guests) and we could provide our own liquor (excluding the beer of course). The venue itself is gorgeous and as a result, we had very little need to embellish the venue with more decor. The set up staff/coat check attendant/security/bartenders/wait staff was all taken care of by Steam Whistle and they were all amazing throughout the night. Our guests were very impressed by the hospitality and service provided to them. Jennifer was our coordinator at Steam Whistle, and she worked very closely with our wedding planner/catering manager to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. While there was a small hiccup with a change in A/V provider a month before the wedding, Jennifer was quick to reassure us that everything would run smoothly and nothing would change as per our old contract. Everything was perfect on the day of our wedding and it definitely lived up to our dream wedding expectations!
