If I could give 10 stars, I would. We had the best day of our lives, and would rebook Vue 100x if we had enough special events to warrant that! We were so pleased with how Liz and Andrea from Metro Cuisine worked as a team, and they really understood what we were going for! The urban setting was perfect for our city chic theme. :)
My husband and I were married at the VUE on the first Friday in September. We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed working with Liz and Andrea (our assigned wedding coordinator from Metro Cusinine!!)They were very prompt in responding to emails and accommodating when we asked to met with them in person. We moved to Texas halfway through our engagement and the were so helpful with making planning such an easy process from so far away. The VUE offered everything we wanted and more in a venue and was reasonably priced and affordable in comparison to its competition in the area. We chose to have both our ceremony and reception in the space and the catering team at Metro provided a flawless transition as the space had to be turned from one to the other during our cocktail hour. Our guests did not stop raving about how Amazing the food was ( we did a heavy hor'divours/small plate reception) and the VUE allows you to provide your own alcohol which is a big money saver! We were also able to utilize the VUE's beautiful patio for some of our professional photos with family, bridal party and each other. I can't say enough great thing about Andrea and Metro Cuisine and Liz and the VUE, you won't regret choosing the VUE//Metro Cuisine for your wedding venue!!!
Liz was exemplar to work with and is a true professional with attention to details, very prompt responsiveness to questions and a commitment to make your wedding experience the best possible that it can be. The space is amazing and was so beautiful and functional. We held our ceremony in the main space and then moved our guests to the cocktail room as they flipped the main space to our dinner/reception area. The Metro Cuisine staff was extremely efficient and stellar in their ability to flip the room, serve amazing hot food, while juggling the bar, photo booth and guests in the cocktail room. Buckeye Entertainment also loves Vue and the acoustics were amazing (verified by our professional musician who performed during the ceremony). The laser projector was also wonderful since we looped a slide show all evening. There is not enough space to share all the accolades we have for this venue and pairing with Metro Cuisine and our DJ. Many, many of our guests said that it was the best wedding that they had ever attended! A friend also has quarterly business meetings at Vue and she loves this use of the Vue too. You can't go wrong!
We had the best experience with Vue, Andrea and Liz. They were very organized and had great advice to create the atmosphere we wanted for the evening. The Green Room is so beautiful and it was so fun to see the decor pop in all 3 of their rooms. Highly recommended!
Thanks to the wonderful staff at Vue and Metro Cuisine! Our wedding was absolutely perfect and I wouldn't change a thing! We heard so many compliments on the decor and food. If you are looking for a great venue/food combination, Vue and Metro are your best bet.
We got married at the Vue in the middle of November and absolutely loved everything about it! The space is amazing! It really speaks for itself so we were able to decorations to a minimum without it looking too plain. Liz was awesome to work with. She responded quickly to any and all questions we had. Price-wise it was also very affordable. Bringing in our own alcohol saved us a ton of money! Just cannot say enough about the Vue. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a venue. We got so many compliments on the location.
We got married early this November and our wedding at the Vue was nothing short of AMAZING!! Liz and Andrea from metro were absolutely fantastic to work with. They made the planning process fun and worry free. They gave wonderful suggestions when needed and the food from Metro was delicious. Everyone and I mean everyone raved about how fabulous the food was! And how fast they "flipped" the room. The space was beautiful! Thank you to everyone at Metro and Vue for making our wedding exactly how we envisioned it to be.
Our wedding with Vue Columbus and Metro Cuisine was an absolutely perfect day. Liz from Vue and Andrea from Metro Cuisine were so easy to work with, responsive, and relaxed throughout the whole process that they made me relaxed. Our guests raved about our food (we did a Mac N Cheese bar!), and the setup they have with the two rooms is really ideal, especially for us who did both our ceremony and receptions there, so they were able to easily flip the main room with guests using the other for cocktails. Be prepared for limited availability for rehearsals as this venue is downtown in Columbus and they have to limit times due to other Vue events and parking restrictions from nearby businesses. This venue was a really perfect size for our 150 guests to be nicely spread out. Also a HUGE benefit of working with Vue and Metro Cuisine is that you can provide your own alcohol if you have a bar! It was so much more cost effective than any of the other venues we considered (we didn't consider them for long, Vue was the first place we toured and I compared everything after that to it). I could not be more grateful that we chose to work with Liz and Andrea! Hopefully sometime I can attend or plan another event there!
We wanted an urban feel and loved this reception space. If you haven't seen the addition, the "green" room, it is a must see. Very botanical and oh so cool. Although I didn't have much to coordinate with Liz, she was VERY responsive to emails and easy to work with.
We had the most beautiful day thanks to vue and metro cuisine! Liz and Andrea were so responsive and customized things to make our day one of a kind!! Thanks for going above and beyond!
Vue is an amazing space! When my husband and I toured the venue we fell in love with the urban vibe and the space was just what we were looking for. Our wedding was amazing!!! We had such a great time and we got so many compliments on the venue and the food! The wedding food was delicious! We decided to go with the appetizer reception and we had 4 appetizers and a taco station! We also had a kid's food station which was great!!! Liz was amazing and so easy to work with. She was very responsive to all my emails and was able to answer all my questions! The venue gives you the option to purchase parking for your guests which is so wonderful! We purchased the lot down the street and gave our guests parking vouchers and it was so great, because they didn't have to worry about finding parking in the brewery district! The bridal loft at the venue is so nice! My bridal party was able to keep all their belongings up there and it was also a great space for parents to take children if they needed to be changed, breastfed or just needed a quiet place to go! The space is so big! We ended up having 17 tables and it didn't seem like our guests were crowded and there was still tons of room for a huge dance floor, which was very important to us! Thank you so much Vue and Metro for helping us have such an amazing wedding day!! I will remember it for the rest of my life!
My husband and I had a large fusion wedding weekend (he is Indian, I am American) in May 2016. We elected to have our Western ceremony at the Vue with brunch food served afterward. The staff at the Vue was amazing, and their catering was excellent. The space is very versatile and fit our aesthetic of "urban chic". The guests commented that it was an excellent function and that the space and employees were fantastic. Also of note, we had a wonderful time planning with the Vue and Metro Cuisine. They were so helpful, responsive, and a delight to work with. One of my favorite parts of the weekend!
I have so many great things to say about this place! During my 18 month engagement I managed to come up with a lot of questions. Liz at VUE was always quick to respond and help guide me to the right source or vendor when I was totally lost. Lauren at metro cuisine was amazing when it came to helping realize my vision for or day! These ladies went above and beyond all of my expectations. The food provided by Metro Cuisine is something our guests are still talking about! Most of them saying "I've never ate my way through a wedding!" I am so glad we chose these outstanding vendors to make our day even more memorable. The space and services as incredible!!
We are so pleased with our recent wedding at The Vue. The venue is modern, spacious and accommodating. Liz and Carl were responsive, helpful and a pleasure to work with! We can't say enough great things about this event space other than you should probably book it if you are considering it - I can see why they reserve fast!
VUE and Metro Cuisine were amazing to work with! Vue was the perfect setting for our wedding, it was an open space with cool details and was more unique than a typical ballroom or conference space. Metro Cuisine made food/drink planning easy. Metro even provided a coordinator (Andrea, we loved her!!!) who helped to make sure everything was set up and looking great the day of . Id recommend them over and over again! One of the Vue owners also did our hair for wedding day -- she did a great job and everyone looked beautiful!
Vue Columbus absolutely deserves all 5 stars (and more). It's a beautiful, unique venue. They provide a blank slate and allow you to customize the wedding of your dreams. Guests raved about the venue! I must also mention that Liz is a pleasure to work with. I had a major mixup on my end on the dropoff day before the wedding and Liz made what could have been a nightmare situation for me completely painless! I cannot say enough wonderful things about how understanding and flexible she was and how much this helped. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
My husband & I got married at Vue on Friday, June 24th! It was an absolutely perfect venue! We had both our ceremony & reception there. It fit our style perfectly. We didn't want to spend much time, money, or effort in decorating, and Vue helped us achieve that. You can dress it up as much as you'd like, or do practically nothing at all! Liz with Vue & Andrea from Metro Cuisine (their catering company) were incredibly easy to work with, so nice, and laid back. The site manager was present for the wedding all night to make sure everything went smooth and he was so professional. We switched our ceremony from outdoors to indoors once we arrived for the rehearsal, and it was no problem at all. Would highly recommend Vue if this site fits your style!
Carl and Liz are absolutely amazing to work with! They went above and beyond to make sure our day was special and was everything we wanted. Liz is quick to respond to any questions you have and will give any suggestions to help you along the way. She is very easy to communicate with. We had 150 guests and this space accommodated everyone perfectly. Both the ceremony and the reception were held here and the use of the cocktail room made the transition easy. The bridal suite was perfect for my bridesmaids and I to get ready. Many of our pictures were taken up there because of the beautiful setting. I absolutely loved how our wedding turned out! It was more than we expected. This is the most unique and beautiful place to have a wedding and I would give 10+ stars!
We got married at Vue in March, and it was the perfect venue for our wedding. There was enough space for our 180ish guests; the two rooms made it easy to transition between the ceremony and the reception; and the interior design was lovely and modern...well, maybe except for that fountain! :) Also, and importantly for us, Vue was the least expensive downtown venue we looked at. It's still not cheap, but considering how amazing everything was AND how easy everything was, it was worth every penny! We had such a joyful, fun day, and we are so thankful to Vue and Metro Cuisine for everything!
Vue was the perfect place to hold our wedding. We held the ceremoney and reception there. The transition between both was very smooth and both rooms had plenty of space for our 150 guests. Liz and her team were beyond amazing to work with. I would give them more than 5 stars if I could!
Best wedding venue ever! Liz is such a delight to work with and she makes everything so easy on you. The venue has had a lot of amazing upgrades and is so beautiful inside. The bridal suite is such an adorable place to take pictures and outside really gives you an urban feel for your photos. Highly recommend this venue to anyone, it screams Columbus and brewery district. I'm sad the day is over, but if we had to do it all again, I wouldn't change a thing about the venue we selected!
Our May wedding at the Vue was perfect! Both The Vue and Metro Cuisine were very easy to work with, and very professional. They describe the decor as "urban rustic" and it was just what we were looking for. Everything was beautiful, yet simple. Very romantic for our ceremony, and very spacious for the reception. Things we loved about this space: only one event at this site at a time, parking was easy, two rooms and a patio so plenty of space for a photo booth and anything else you need, cozy bridal loft great for pictures, handicap accessible, we provided our own alcohol (huge money saver!), and Liz and Kathy are amazing! Our guests were impressed both with the beauty of the space, and the efficiency and professionalism of the staff. We had our perfect wedding, and very happily recommend Vue to anyone looking for a fun, carefree, beautiful wedding!
We had both our ceremony and reception at Vue. It was the perfect choice! We got many compliments on the look and feel of the space. Andrea and Liz were super easy to work with and helped ensure everything turned out perfectly. You can't beat the location, ease of parking/hotels for guests, ability to bring your own alcohol, and there endless possibilities for decorating. Would absolutely recommend!
My wife and I had our wedding reception at Vue Columbus. We, and all our guests, had a fabulous time. The setting was beautiful and spacious with lots of room for dancing, talking and eating! Carl and Liz are so great with whom to work and go to extra lengths to make sure your event is just the way you want it. I have attended a lot of weddings and receptions around Columbus and this one is by far the best!
My husband and I were struggling to find a venue that fit for both of us. We viewed a few but most of them were a "do it this way because we know best" type venue. Thankfully Dock 580 was completely booked and recommended the Vue. It was exactly what we were looking for - an urban feel but was still quaint. We worked with Liz with the Vue and Andrea with Metro Cuisine. You can make this space in to whatever you want and their catering team executed beyond my expectations. It's amazing to see your vision come to life after planning for so long. The staff were absolutely wonderful to work with before the big day and day of and did a fantastic job of ensuring I stayed on my timeline throughout the planning process - the taco station was a HUGE hit. I've already recommended this venue to a friend who is getting married summer of 2017. Thank you for making this day perfect for us and our guests.
