What an awesome venue! We had our wedding and reception here in August and couldn't be happier. The staff was exceptional - Sonia and her day of coordinator took great care of us. They were very accommodating to all of our needs, and made sure that we and our guests were comfortable. The weather was perfect and everything looked amazing! Great job and can't recommend highly enough. I wish they had a discount if you invest in a Drees home - or vice versa.
There are just not enough amazing things to say about this venue. Not only is it absolutely stunning and beautiful - the staff was amazing to work with throughout my whole wedding process. The views of downtown Cincinnati are absolutely gorgeous from this venue. The majority of our guests were in from out-of-town and they were blown away by the venue. It was so clean and the grounds were beautiful. Plus there is ample parking for all our folks who drove themselves. My husband and I lucked out and were able to secure the last Saturday during the summer months after sitting on a waiting list. The Drees staff was so polite and nice while I anxiously waited for the date to become available -- Sonia, the coordinator at Drees -- called me the second we could book because she knew I was going to be waiting by the phone. She walked me through what would be the next 11 months of planning for my husband and I. She answered every single email throughout the planning process very quickly and was so helpful when I started to stress about the small details. Any time I felt the need to tour the venue, she was ready to receive me -- even when my Mom came in to town, she agreed to open the building and let us walk around. The Drees staff has timeline templates that helped me plan the whole day and then set up a meeting between myself, the caterer and our day-of-wedding coordinator that was also provided by Drees. It kept me from having to hire out another person to handle the day-of details. Janine, our day of coordinator, took all my stress away. She also took all the stress away for my parents and in-laws. She handled everything and any small question I had, she immediately took care of. I felt so special and taken care of throughout the whole day. They held on to all of our things over the weekend so I didn't have to do any clean-up post wedding... I was able to just leave with my husband to enjoy the rest of our night! I cannot say enough nice things about this venue and the staff that works there. I recommend Drees Pavilion to everyone I meet!
Drees was absolutely amazing! I worked with Sonia and Carolyn. They answered all my questions and was patient as I repeatedly asked the same questions ( with everything going on it was hard to keep all the details straight). They accommodated our family needs and made sure everything went smoothly. I could not have asked for a better venue!
My daughters wedding was at the Drees Pavilion. I cannot say enough good things about the beauty of the venue, the coordinators who run the events (Sonia and Carolyn) and McHales catering! Sonia was always available to answer any question throughout the planning stages. The ceremony was also at Drees and Sonia and Carolyn coordinated the whole process. I truly was amazed at their clockwork precision in moment by moment planning of the entire evening. We received so many compliments ! We had a few special requests and needs through the evening and Carolyn always said "yes we can take care of that"! I also was very happy at the choice of McHales, food was great and a very professional staff!
This venue. These people. THEY ARE AMAZING! I am so incredibly happy we chose to have our reception here. Sonia (our coordinator) made our day so incredibly special and smooth. We will recommend for years to come.
Scott Mescher had the tallest order in the world with my type AAA personality; not only do I credit him with 100% exceeding expectations, he is hands-down the reason our wedding day was a fairy tale (and because he's Scott, he knew that our fairy tale was black and white with cigar and open bar; anything traditional or princessy would have made me lose composure). Again, to Scott's credit--composure was never lost and that is because he and his team knew every detail and remained constantly one step ahead of us all. My husband and I intended to drive ourselves off into the moonlight; without any hesitation Scott drove us himself. People are still talking about Scott and Drees commitment to excellence and it's been almost a year. Beautiful scenery, attention to detail and a mastery of event production.
Outstanding! We were so pleased with the accommodations for my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception in October 2016 at the Drees Pavilion. It is such a beautiful location overlooking the Cincinnati skyline and we were blessed to have great weather on a Sunday night! We received so many positive comments from our guests about how wonderful everything was. The Drees staff were easy to work with. They helped guide the planning process and accommodated our individual requests. The day-of-coordinator was so helpful too, assuring things progressed on schedule and anticipating our needs throughout the night. The food from McHale's Catering looked and tasted great (seated dinner). The staff of Drees and McHale's work together often and that coordination helped make everything go very well. Very impressed! I highly recommend Drees Pavilion!
Drees was the best reception hall and the best choice for my wedding day. The food was great from McHales and I had the best wedding coordinator Sonia. The place was beautiful and felt so special. They treated me like family. I highly recommend them!!
I couldn't imagine any place more wonderful to have a wedding reception. I worked with Sonia and Carolyn for our labor day weekend wedding and it was absolutely perfect. I fell in love with the city view. They were very thorough with their details meeting prior to the wedding and worked with what I envisioned. They were great with contacting all of our vendors to coordinate setup. They even made sure my husband and I had cake and dinner to bring with us back to our hotel the night of! The drees staff made sure that our parents and us always had a drink in hand since we were so busy talking to our guests the whole night. We had so many compliments from guests on our reception location. It was absolutely beautiful and I wouldn't have changed a thing.
Great PlaceReviewed on 8/15/2015 Kristyn R
We had a wonderful time at our wedding thanks to the Drees staff!
DREES was beyond amazing!!Reviewed on 7/08/2015 Randy H
We can't stress enough how wonderful Drees was for our wedding day! Not only is the view and facility exceptional, but the staff was unbelievable as well! We searched and met with about 15 different venues before checking out Drees (everyone kept telling us to check Drees, but we thought the price would be way too much). When we did finally meet with Drees, we fell in love! The availability was very slim (for Saturday book 1.5 years ahead of time, Friday about 1 year), but for good reason! The whole process with them was great. They answered all our questions quickly, they explained the timeline easily and provided suggestions, and they set up and coordinated with all the vendors. As far as price goes, it was pretty reasonable for what you get in return. It does add up when you start changing linen colors or adding chair covers, etc, but still worth it. Last comment, it was a little tough to keep people on the dance floor because it was a gorgeous day and everyone wanted to be out on the back patio. Possible suggestion would be to have the dance floor outside in the back. We would have done this if we did it all over. Regardless, Drees went over and beyond our expectations and we would without a doubt, do it all over again!
AMAZING VIEWSReviewed on 6/27/2015 Samantha R
The Drees Pavilion provides unbelievable views of Downtown Cincinnati and they make sure your event is flawless. They take full responsibility of your day going as smooth as possible. An event/wedding planner is not needed as they assist you in all your needs. They made sure that all our other vendors were contacted and on the same page. Every staff member was professional and absolutely amazing! The venue was worth every penny and we would do it all over again!
Drees PavilionReviewed on 1/28/2015 Rachael C
My wedding was January 2nd 2015 and we had the best time here! They were outstanding to us, catering to our every need. The place is a little over priced for during the peak season but because our wedding was off season it was very reasonable! And with it being in the winter they had a special decoration up for that and it really added to the whole space. The total cost for us included the catering. Which was through Mchale's and that was fantastic as well! I highly recommend this place, on top of all they did and offer they view is amazing and makes for amazing photos.
PICTURE PERFECT VENUE!Reviewed on 9/12/2014 Natalie K
I can't say enough about our experience. The coordinators, staff, view and etc., were beyond words. Everything was coordinated perfectly right down to the last detail. If you want an excellent venue~let Drees Pavilion be your 1st choice. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for everything! Lisa Kauffeld ~ 8/1/2014
Wouldn't want to get married anywhere else!Reviewed on 9/12/2013 Laurie B
The Drees Pavilion was amazing! We had our ceremony and reception at the Pavilion and I couldn't ask for anything better than the service they provided. The food was catered by McHales and it was so good. I definitely recommend the Tilapia. The Drees took care of everything for us, they even called our vendors to confirm they would be there on our wedding day. I knew that it was a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. This place is top notch and at the end of the night, my husband and I had nothing but great things to say about the Drees.
The Most Perfect NightReviewed on 7/31/2013 Loren K
Drees Pavilion at Devour Park is absolutely beautiful to begin with. But they take a lot of pride in making that night special for the bride and groom. They took the bridal party and the bride and groom's parents drink orders early so that they were never left with an empty glass or had to go to the bar. I loved that part because I felt like they really wanted us to enjoy the night instead of trying to get food and drinks and all that. They made me feel confident that they could setup our dessert table with no real direction other than some pieces to use. They did a phenomenal job the entire night!
Drees was the perfect spot for our wedding!Reviewed on 7/16/2013 Mridula M
Drees Pavilion was the perfect venue for our wedding! They accommodated all of our guests and the view from the back is the best in the city! The best part of this venue was planner Scott Mescher who worked hard to make our day perfect!
THE BESTReviewed on 7/09/2013 Lyndsay M

Wedding of a lifetimeReviewed on 7/03/2013 Allyson M
Drees Pavilion has not only one of the best views of the city, but has outstanding service. Our contact was Scott and he was very professional and very helpful. He made sure that all of my questions were answered and also made sure I had nothing to worry about on the day of! I would recommend Drees to anyone and everyone!
Beautiful LocationReviewed on 6/21/2013 Krystal A
The weather was absolutely perfect. The wedding coordinator was very helpful.
Drees PavillionReviewed on 6/13/2013 Kristen H
Drees Pavillion is AMAZING. Everything from the scenery to the friendly staff made the wedding day absolutely perfect. At the end of the night, Drees had cabs waiting for all the guests that had "a little too much fun :)" so that we didn't have to worry about anyone drinking and driving.Also, they packed up our cars with all of the left over decorations/alcohol so that we didn't have to stress about cleaning up after the wedding. These are just a few of the many reasons Drees is so great to work with! :)
AMAZING!!!!!Reviewed on 4/19/2013 Holly N
My whole experience with Drees Pavilion was amazing and wonderful! They were so helpful and professional! I could not have asked for a better place to have my reception! My contact, Sonia, was wonderful and anticipated our every need. They set up our reception for us and it was BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Sonia definetAle took lots of the stress away from me in the last few days before the wedding and I am so happy I got to meet here and the rest of the staff at Drees Pavilion! I can't even count the number of compliments we received about the the location! Totally recommend them 100%!!!
Amazing!Reviewed on 1/04/2013 Laura S
Drees Pavilion and Jeff Thomas Catering made my wedding dreams come true! They provided great service and it was a awesome time!
Drees PavilionReviewed on 11/23/2012 Lisa M
We could not have been happier with our reception at Drees. Everyone we worked with made sure that our day, and our whole experience leading up to it, was perfect. The room was beautiful and you cannot beat the view of Cincinnati.
Blown away!Reviewed on 11/11/2012 January D
My fiance and I looked at several places (Cincy Museum Center being one of them) and one day we stopped up for an open house they were having and they had the place decorated to show what it would look like, I told my fiance this is it! I know he agreed, but we didn't have the biggest budget since we were paying for the wedding ourselves. We spoke with the friendly people there and Scott told us he would give us a deal if we chose a wedding date that was in their off season (winter) so that's what we did. We got married in march and it was beautiful!!! All of our guests thought it was beautiful and many said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. The view at night with the city lights really set it off. Plus, we hired a lighting team for the reception. We were married there and it was lit with candles very soft and romantic and then they opened up the side walls and the reception was lit with specialty lighting and our monograms on the dance floor and it was just perfect. I don't even think my fiance and I thought it was going to be that good. If you want this place but want a great price then go for the winter season or else you might have to pay for summer or holidays. But it is so worth it! Sonia was more than awesome, she was on top of it. She kept everything going on a schedule, brought us our dinner, and kept us with a fresh drink all night. Wonderful!! We had to get a wedding pic with her she was so great! This place is great, so glad we did it here!
