I recently had my wedding reception at 2616 and had a fantastic experience. I was a little worried after reading some negative reviews that had posted since we had booked the venue but then I received a call from Lisa who told me that she was the new event manager. From her first phone call I already felt better and I truly enjoyed the rest of the planning process. She spent lots of time with us and thought of all the little things I would not have. She helped me chose a caterer and arranged for bartenders to serve the alcohol since we chose to bring our own. She also reserved the parking lot next door for our guests to park. When we arrived the day of the venue was very clean and everything was set up exactly how we expected. The reception was beautiful and all the guests had only nice things to say and several even commented on how helpful the staff was. I highly recommend this venue to anyone planning an event.
Oh my snap, I need to plan an event. This space is rather amazing seeing how you could easily have a party upstairs on the balcony (over looking the downtown view) while someone else is having "get down and party" event downstairs. Beautiful spot right in the middle-ish of Deep Ellum with so much potential to make your party plans come true. The vibe is very Deep Ellum with exposed brick, black painted pipes and exposed hardware. Could be gorgeous against a anything. Parking would be, in my opinion, in the paid lot next door ($10) or metered (4 hour max limit). Right next door to Cane Rosso, so catering could be easy too. Just saying.
Great Event Space...Ollie Mayer one of the owners has an incredible network of contacts that make your event go with out a hitch.
Really cool event space in the Deep Ellum. There is a large party space on the ground level and an amazing rooftop terrace with views of downtown. There is some free parking directly behind the venue, otherwise there are several paid lots and meters on the street. I'm not sure when I would have need for an event space, but if I ever do I'm going to check this place out. It would be a great place for a party!
My friends threw a party at this place. The space was large with plenty of room to dance and pretty much do whatever you want. Nice view of Downtown and Deep Ellum, especially at sunrise.
Lisa handled my event for appx 600 guests on the 1st & 2nd floor with no problem at all! she secured tabc certified bartenders, barbacks, cleaning crew (before & after), set-up event. lisa also had late night taco's brought in for midnight snack. we booked our own dj's and had one downstairs and one on the 2nd floor patio (HUGE!) that overlooks downtown.
everything was great, and she was a pleasure to work with in an industry that can be very "trying" at times.
2616 Commerce is a great place to have a wedding or event. It gives you flexibility and wide open ideas. If you have access to your own vendors, caterers, and alcohol, it is the best place for your event. The interior is perfect. Wide open floor plan and beautiful architecture. You can create your own design and look easily.
When we first booked the venue, communication with venue was a challenge. However, once Lisa Vorwerk took over my wedding, it was perfect. She was outstanding. Great communicator followed up on every detail and made my day great.
We had a great wedding and I loved having my event there. The night went perfect and cost was good for what we did. Lisa was flexible and responsive and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her and the venue to anyone.
Just make sure you work with Lisa. She is a great planner and organizer.
The only downside for caterers is there is no kitchen.
Another upside to the venue - multiple levels for guests. The patio on the second floor is wonderful and has a great view for photos.
Overall - great space for a good value. Just make sure Lisa is your contact.
I have to say that Lisa has been a huge help with my fiance and I. Her and her sister are very understanding and quick to get back to you! The venue is georgeous and they make it so much easier for the wedding, I definately would reccomend this venue to anyone that asks!!!!!
I recently had my wedding & reception at 2616. The venue was beautiful. We had our ceremony on the deck which has a great view of downtown. We used the 3rd floor for a cocktail hour so our guests could mingle and have a drink while we finished taking pictures and then the reception on the first floor. Our event manager realy helped us get alll the last minute things together that day which took alot of stress off of us. I would definately recommend this venue to other brides.
OK..... I know that most of the reviews about this place are horrible.... That is what I thought when I started reading... i was very nervous about the whole process... After false meetings and no returned phone calls, something happened. The management changed.. THANK GOD!!! The new General Manager is AWESOME!!! Lisa Vorwerk has turned this place around 100%!! Every review bofore this one is just that old news. Lisa V. did everything and more. She moved here from Austin and was floored at the way this venue had been handled. Trust me when I say that she will make you event the beast it can be. It rained all day during our wedding day whch is good luck, but Lisa made sure it was perfect!!
