Client Love

"Was there for a private musical event. The venue was clean and well kept. It's a hidden little gem in Clintonville!"

- Perro

We had a wonderful experience with Kristen and CWC from start to finish. We only had to drop off our decorations and pick them up after--a huge selling point for us. The food was wonderful and our guests had a great time. We highly recommend! - Corbin S

Beautiful venue and great staff that made our day very special. Would pick this venue over and over again! - Paris R

Cannot praise my experience working with Kristen, and having our wedding at CWC enough. We made multiple custom requests such as using our own wine glasses, off the menu items, and a special sequence of events, all of which Kristen worked to make happen for us. She was attentive, responsive, and always in good spirits. We used supplies CWC already had available from previous couples, and donated some of our own. BYOB helped us offer nice beer, wine, and spirits affordably. Sound system was incredible. Thank you for everything! - Jessica D

We attended a family wedding in July 2022 and CWC didn’t disappoint. The setting for an outside ceremony was beautiful and the venue inside was perfect. The food was delicious with something for everyone. The whole day ran smoothly and the staff were friendly with nothing being too much trouble. A great venue! - Stephanie S

We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary at a party on Aug. 7th. We had 75 guests including family and close friends. The place looked spectacular and the food was beautifully presented and delicious. We were so impressed with how easily we could have a party and how beautifully it turned out. Best of all, the final price was very reasonable. - Sandy T
