The Upper Loft at Loft 310 was the perfect place to hold our wedding reception. Kimberly and Sara were so easy to work with, quick to respond to all emails and were very accommodating of any and all of our special requests. They even went above and beyond on a few items that... Read More definitely impressed our guests. The loft space was clean and modern and didn't require much decoration to look great. Choosing an all inclusive venue and knowing that one entity was handling the room set up, food, bar, etc. definitely made the planning process easier. The service and the food were amazing - way better than 'typical wedding food'. Having access to a Ready Room just off the main hall was such a nice benefit for our bridal party to be able to relax and have a place to store their stuff and for the band to be able to have a space to relax during their breaks. Guests were so impressed with the facility, staff and amenities and told us that it was one of the most fun weddings they've ever been to. Overall, we are very happy that we chose to have our reception at Loft 310 and would highly recommend this venue.


Awesome rooftop wedding

We were married on the SkyDeck, the rooftop venue above Loft310, in May. We got very lucky with weather, but there was a backup plan in place laid out by the staff in case of rain. It turned out fantastic, our guests were very impressed with the views. I was surprised when they... Read More said they could host of wedding of over 200 on the space, but the layout was very nice. While we took pictures, our guests had a cocktail hour in the Gatsby room that is connected to Loft310. It was an extra fee, but worth it. Very stylish. The reception was in the Loft main room. The food was fantastic, especially the appetizers. The staff was friendly and quick to remove plates and deliver the main course, either chicken parm or prime rib. Nice portion sizes, everyone seemed happy with their meal. The DJ they provided (can't recall his name!) was a lot of fun. The call before the ceremony from him was nice to get on the same page with music choices. Overall, we would recommend this venue for any wedding where you want something unique or classic. Kimberly and Sara were very easy to work with and someone was in the room at all times to answer questions. Thank you!

I cannot say enough good things about our wedding with Loft 310! The whole team was easy to work with and truly cared about making our day special. We had our Wedding at The Gatsby; this space was perfect and gave a cozy & sophisticated feel to our wedding. Even during the... Read More event, the staff were professional and accommodating. They helped monitor/kick out wedding crashers and adjusted the temperature when guests were getting cold. When the bartender had to leave for a couple minutes to restock the bar, Shannon (the event planner) jumped behind the bar because our guests were lining up. The real surprise was the food! We did not do a tasting before our wedding (although they do offer it) so we were taking a shot in the dark and to our delight, our guests would not stop talking about how good all the food was! As someone who has worked several years in customer service I know what it means to go above and beyond and this team does just that! I would recommend Loft 310 for any private event you may be considering.

I was very disappointed with the Upper Loft. We were so excited about it at first, but after we signed the contract things went downhill fast. We were worried about noise from the other wedding reception in the building but were reassured it wouldn't interfere. During our toasts... Read More I could barely hear anything over the music pumping from below. Dinner service interrupted the best man as he stood go give his toast. We were 'sold' on their wonderful 'day of' coordination but there was barely any communication between the staff and us that night, and I could never find our 'coordinator' when I needed her. Cocktail hour at the Gatsby was a nightmare, we had 150 guests with only two bartenders, so no one could get served... even me, the bride! Multiple guests said the bartenders were really rude, I wouldn't know because I couldn't get waited on. The bar was littered with garbage and there was just one staffer clearing the napkins/glasses/plates with his bare hands. The sound system they charged us $1000 to plug in to was terrible. The staff ended up serving real champagne to all the kids (which they loved LOL)! We paid the extra money for the digital sign on the side of the building but were never told that it was featured as one of several signs scrolling throughout the night. We complained after the fact that we never once saw our sign and they refunded us our money because they said it was in fact not working. Had we not said complained they wouldn't have given us our money back. The food was great and the ambiance was beautiful, but unfortunately it was a very disappointing night.

We loved our wedding reception in the Upper Loft! What grabbed me initially about the Loft spaces when looking at wedding venues was the exposed brick, the open layouts and the simple elegance of both spaces. They were pretty much blank slates - perfect for using as little or as... Read More much decoration as we wanted. We chose to have our cocktail hour on the SkyDeck, and our reception in the Upper Loft. We hired our florist to design hanging installations with greenery, and it was absolutely breath-taking. We also put greenery on the walls, and utilized their crystal chandeliers. I decided early on that I wanted to rent out the Penthouse Suite for the night before the wedding, and also the wedding night. My bridesmaids and I had such a fun night together in the suite before the wedding, and then woke up to a beautiful room full of windows and light where we had our hair and make-up done the next morning (our hair stylists from Cheeky Strut got us ready in the Penthouse)! We had a full kitchen to make breakfast in and had the ultimate getting-ready experience! It was also really convenient to stay in the Penthouse with my husband for our wedding night - after hanging out with our guests on the Skydeck after the wedding, we just walked downstairs and retired for the evening! Shannon P was so present throughout the entire wedding planning process and answered countless questions and emails from me, many times within a matter of an hour or so! Katie was also such a great resource before signing with the Loft, and was equally as responsive to all of my questions. I'm very glad that we chose the Loft 310 to host our wedding reception, our guests were blown away and had the most amazing time! I definitely recommend this venue to brides who want to have their wedding in a central location with plenty of things for their guests to do, there was never a dull moment.
