Venues to Host Your Wedding Welcome Party in Cleveland


Your wedding welcome party is the kickoff to the wedding weekend festivities! It's a time for you to greet out-of-town guests, spend some extra time with your family + friends, and generally get the weekend off to a great start.

When choosing a location for your welcome party, low-key + casual is a great choice! This party is more about quality time with your guests than fancy food or intricate details.

We've compiled a list of our favorite spots in the Cleveland area to host your welcome party that we think fit the bill!


Punch Bowl Social


Located just a few blocks from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, this lounge boasts a rooftop hangout, multiple bars, a restaurant, and games (like pool, foosball, and arcade games) that your guests are sure to love! It's a fun and trendy spot with plenty to keep you entertained amidst the party mingling.


Platform Beer Co.


Breweries are a great, low-key spot to host a gathering, and Platform Beer Co. is no exception. The Cleveland tasting room has 20+ beers to try, seating inside, and a patio. It's the perfect spot to welcome your closest family + friends!


Bar Cento


Bar Cento is a modern Italian eatery focusing on locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. The food is out of this world and the vibe inside is rustic and comfortable. Your guests will love circling up around a table and sharing a bite and a good time!


The Cambridge Room at House of Blues Cleveland


The Cambridge Room at House of Blues Cleveland is a great space that is perfect for this type of event! It's equipped with AV capability so you can use a microphone for toasts, play a custom playlist for the evening, or include a slideshow as part of the party's entertainment.
