Celebrate your love in urban wine country. City Winery is located in the Fashion District, one of the newest and most exciting neighborhoods in Philadelphia. With unparalleled access to public transportation, local attractions, and lodging, City Winery Philadelphia puts you in the epicenter of one of America’s most vibrant cities. Four separate event spaces mean that anything goes, from intimate weddings to extravagant receptions in this world-class Music Venue, Urban Winery, Private Barrel Room, and Loft.
The venue’s concept was developed by Michael Dorf who is one of the partners behind New York City’s famed Knitting Factory, a long-running music hall. His love of wine turned into a passion on a trip to California where he had the unique opportunity to produce his own barrel with winemaker David Tate. For City Winery, he merged his enthusiasm for this new venture with his lifetime of devotion to the music industry and created something brand new. For couples, this means an exciting, upscale venue to exchange vows and celebrate with loved ones. The new interior features architectural elements indicative of the building’s original purpose including impressive wood columns and beams. More modern details such as a sweeping staircase accentuated by uplighting and rustic design elements create a sense of elegance and sophistication. Host a large affair in their main event space where guests can view the winemaking process through a large wall of glass windows. A stage complete with a state-of-the-art sound system will get the celebration started as newlyweds and their guests toast to a lifetime of happiness.
City Winery Philadelphia has four venues which can accommodate up to 200 guests for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and other wedding-related events. Their largest space is the Main Venue which doubles as the concert hall when it’s not in use for private parties. The Loft seats up to 100 and makes a big impression for smaller celebrations. It features a small stage, projection screens, and an elegant ambience for a dream wedding. Two other spaces include the Winery/Tasting Room and Private Barrel room which can be used to host 50 seated guests and 20 seated guests, respectively. For those in need of more, reconfigure the building’s layout for a grand affair that can hold up to 1,100 people. As a full service event space, City Winery includes all of the curated culinary creations, in-house wine, selection of full spirits, professional event staff, customized floor plans, and access to the very best local vendors. For an extra-special touch, allow their talented graphic designers to create custom wine bottle labels to commemorate the special occasion. Work with their event coordinators to personalize the city wedding you’ve always dreamt of.
