Columbus Weddings recently had the opportunity to tour two new Columbus venues. Both centrally located near downtown, both venues combine historic architecture with modern amenities and design, creating remarkable spaces for engaged couples.
First comes the new AC Hotel Columbus Downtown, a new build added to an existing historic facade on Park Street that opened in early June. With more than 150 rooms and six suites on eight floors, the hotel offers an inviting exercise facility, valet parking, and pet-friendly policies.
Two conference rooms are separated by sliding glass partitions and thus offer 2400 square meters of flexible space for your wedding, cocktail hour or your reception. Notable details include neutral design elements, high-quality A / V equipment and wonderful views of Short North and Goodale Park.
Even with the AC Lumin Skybar, a rooftop cocktail and tapas bar with Spanish-inspired small plates and tons of Instagram-worthy photo corners – perfect for everything from bachelorette parties to cocktail hours. Additional restaurant options are planned for the space.
The AC Hotel Columbus Downtown is now open to guests and wedding bookings alike.
A few miles northeast on Fourth Street in Italian Village is our other old-on-new room: Edison 777. BTTS Holdings’ newest and owner-operated venue venture Brookshire, Water sedge, The property in New Albany, The fig room, Flowers flowers and a home catering company – located in a former power station building (hence the name) from the early 1900s. It features original brick and wood details that have been updated with modern touches like a preserved moss wall and trendy neon signs.
BTTS Holdings not only offers an in-house caterer and florist, but also works with D&M DJ Entertainment, Sauer Cakes and Enticing Icings to offer DJ and cake packages, creating a one-stop shop for couples.
The industrially chic space includes a built-in bar, a private courtyard for ceremonies or cocktail hours, and a loft area with dedicated toilets – perfect for getting ready before the wedding or welcoming children during the reception.
The first wedding at Edison 777 is next month; the venue is now booked for 2021, 2022 and beyond.
