The wait staff were incredible during our event and made sure everyone was comfortable and accommodated. The food was also prepared fantastically and we received many compliments on the taste and presentation. I have held my wedding at Backstage and attended a wedding here as a guest prior and, what was most amazing to me, was the experience, food, and service was the same in both events. This shows me that Backstage holds all their events to the highest standard and is dedicated to making the experience for the planner and the guest as memorable as possible. Thank you Cara and the Backstage team for making our event so special for my bride and I.

We didn’t do any special decorating. They put some votive candles on the tables and it was all the space needed. It was romantic and fun. I didn’t know this space existed. Planning a Covid wedding hasn’t been an easy task, but The Backstage Event Center was one of our silver linings.

We never lifted a finger. The food was on a whole new level! This is not “wedding food” this is top tier, elegant comfort food. Our hors devours were the talk of the night. The beer cheese and soft pretzels, cranberry Brie bruschetta and spanakopita were huge hits! Also, if you’ve never considered pot roast for your wedding meal, this is the place to do it. The meat was so tender it fell apart, and our guests could not say enough about it. Katie and the venue made sure to handle a guest who had a lot of food allergies. He made sure to find me and let me know that everything he ate was off the charts delicious. He didn’t worry at all about cross contamination because the staff were beyond professional and handled his allergies with care. Something you might not consider but ended up being a game changer were the terraces off of the front and back of the event space. A beautiful view of the lights of downtown Cincinnati, wrought iron cocktail tables and chairs, and propane heating towers in case it got chilly. Our guests took photo after photo with the city scape as their backdrop. You will not regret using the Backstage Event Center for your special day. I can’t say enough about it, just that I could do it all over again!

Let me know if you need anything else from us! Thanks a ton!
