• Had our company Christmas party here and it was just perfect. It was so easy dealing with Kate, and the night of the party I was able to just relax and enjoy the night while she took care of everything ! The venue was decorated beautifully, the bartenders were GREAT, and everyone just absolutely loved it. I would definitely recommend Cellar 52 for parties, showers, weddings, any event! Thanks to the staff for all their hard work and making the night just awesome !

  • We got married at Cellar 52 September 2018. It was the perfect venue for our day. We love St. Jacobs, the river served as the perfect backdrop for family photos. The building originates in 1852 and although it has been beautifully refurbished, it managed to provide a blend of comfort and character with a dash of glam which was perfect for our vintage inspired day. The patio with wood burning fireplace was a favourite for our guests to hang out. Kate was amazing to deal with, she was so accessible and supportive throughout the planning process and the list of preferred vendors is top notch. Kate added personal touches like stocking our bride and groom suites with all the toiletries and amenities you can think of to ensure we were worry free the day of. Overall, a fantastic venue and experience.

  • Cellar 52 was the venue for our daughter’s wedding on June 15, 2019. Many thanks to Kate and her team for making the event truly memorable for all of us. We have had so many positive comments from our guests. We appreciated Kate’s support through the entire process from our first meeting in January, the very thorough and professional proposal document, all of the advice and guidance through the planning right up to the big day itself. When we arrived on Saturday morning, everything in this charming venue was in perfect order. The additional facilities such as the Bride’s and Groom’s rooms were a big help during the day’s preparations. The Cellar 52 team was right there whenever we needed them during the setup, dinner and reception.

  • We had our wedding reception inside cellar 52 and our ceremony at the river behind the building. The river location for the ceremony was beautiful, and Kate and Rick were a tremendous help in getting everything organized for the whole day. Everything was spectacular, from the décor to the assistance from all of the Cellar 52 staff. Inside the venue, there was plenty of space for a large dance floor, and guests loved the outdoor patio. We have been receiving a ton of complements about the venue and staff, with guests saying that we must have paid a fortune for such an amazing location (the prices are very reasonable!). We had an amazing experience and would highly recommend Cellar 52 to anyone looking to get married in the area.

  • We held my mom's 50th at Cellar 52 earlier this year. Kate was an absolute pleasure to work with, she was professional, helpful, and accommodated all of our requests leading up to the birthday. On the night of the event, Kate and Richard ensured a seamless execution and an enjoyable experience for all of our guests. The space itself was intimate, elegant, charming and without equal in the tri-city region. All of our guests were impressed. Overall, Cellar 52 provides a fantastic venue and experience!

  • My daughter and son-in-law were married there this past Saturday! Where to begin.... absolutely fantastic! First of all the venue is stunning! Exquisitely decorated and very clean! I cannot say enough about Kate and Rick, they are so wonderful! We had absolutely nothing to worry about... Kate looked after everything and made sure it went according to plan! The food was fantastic (Little Mushroom). I honestly cannot think of a single thing that could have been better! I keep receiving messages how perfect everything was and how beautiful the venue was! For this to happen, there is so much happening behind the scenes which Kate and Rick took care of..... they do it so well, they make it seem effortless! The bridal suite and grooms room was fantastic- so nice to get ready there! Kate made sure everything happened according to schedule. Even though it was chilly- they had the patio set up beautifully- we even joined some friends outside by the fire! They made sure to include cozy blankets! Our friends and family raved about the wedding from start to finish.. it truly was a very special day! Thank you so much Kate and Rick my making my daughter and son-in-law’s day one that they will forever cherish and remember! I could not have been more pleased! Kate and Rick -you truly are such a special couple!

  • We had an unusual vision for our wedding and Cellar 52 made it possible. We both love music and so saw our reception as an opportunity to bring a unique 6-piece traditional and loud, old style New Orleans band to play a concert. We decided we'd allow anyone who wanted to listen to them to attend so we didn't have any idea of numbers and we wanted to provide food and an open bar. Very dangerous, right? Kate and Rick made this crazy idea realistic. They offered bar suggestions we could afford and we set a $$ cut off point. Th Little Mushroom prepared the food and designed a crockpot supper so there was warm self service food throughout the evening. Our guests and family said it was the best wedding ever. Relaxed and so much fun. All evening Kate and Rick were ensuring everything went smoothly so we didn't have to worry about a thing. I can not recommend this venue more. It's like the Tardis, bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. Thank you for the most perfect wedding.
