The Factory on Barclay

Industrial Chic Event Venue in Harbor District

Hiding behind bright yellow-orange foam cheeseheads is the industrial chic venue The Factory on Barclay. This lovely venue, located in Walker’s Point, was once the A.P. Green Refractory building, a 1909 architectural and historical landmark, and was most recently home to The Original Cheesehead Factory.

This unique 7,800 square foot multi-purpose venue space offers three unique areas that can be rented separately or combined for extra dancing room and guests. The iconic Milwaukee cream city brick in The Main Factory space is highlighted by the natural light that streams in from the high bay ceilings. Cathedral ceilings in Milwaukee? Look no further than The Warehouse space. This space is perfect for ceremonies and smaller receptions. The Warehouse also features a full-service bar made of reclaimed barn wood with a diverse selection of local, craft and microbrews on tap! The spacious Mezzanine is situated above all the action and can be rented separately for meetings or a “pop-up” event.

The Factory also offers a professional and dedicated staff to assist you throughout the planning process. Whether you’re looking to host a large wedding or a small corporate event, The Factory on Barclay has the perfect space for you.
