“South Second was a breeze to work with and is especially a venue to consider if you’re looking for a trendy alternative to a typical banquet hall. South Second had all the benefits of that—on-site catering, tons of tables, cool chairs, huge variety of linens, great bartenders, friendly planners (who made planning easy especially from out of state) but still offered the freedom to host a custom event that went beyond (and looked nothing like) the typical wedding.” – Sarah B.
“I am truly being honest in saying that South Second really does have it all. Leading up to our wedding day our coordinator Michelle was super responsive, patient, and an all around pleasure to work with. The entire staff at South Second really is above and beyond from the planning of your event to the execution.” – Missy P.
“South Second was the dream venue for our wedding! The historic industrial vibe is exactly what we were looking for. The open concept was perfect for our large number of guests. We received plenty of compliments from our guests on the beauty of the space, the excellent bar service, and great food.” – Kelly M.
