Venue Features
The Scene:

The river is the backdrop, the room is industrial like you’re on the set of a Hollywood film. And the bar is a modern version of a stylish Manhattan speakeasy from the 1920’s. Upscale, timeless, and Old Hollywood- your guests will enjoy strikingly beautiful industrial architecture mixed with a soothing patio overlooking the St. Joe River. 

Our event space is unlike any other in the city. With a 5,000 square foot open floor plan The Brick offers an urban, spacious venue that can be customized to meet your needs. Simple and elegant, with brick exterior and interior, loft ceilings, exposed lighting, and dock doors opening onto the patio, you have a blank canvas to create your vision.

Design:
Originally the Eckrich meat factory dating to 1935, the building has been restored to it's 1930's industrial roots with a touch of art deco flair. Our bar originated in 1920's Chicago and was formerly housed at Bridget McGuire's, a popular bar with the Notre Dame crowd. The artist-designed concrete slab counter is supported by wood beams salvaged from the original Oliver Chilled Plow Factory, as was our floating stair leading to the small mezzanine. 
Standout Venue Features:
The Brick is owned by Notre Dame alumni Corey and Becky Cressy who wish they would have had such a venue for their wedding in 2002. Corey brought his real estate experience to the renovation process while Becky employed her architectural expertise. They combined their self-proclaimed "opposite personalities" to create a perfect dichotomy in the design of The Brick featuring a minimalist industrial aesthetic with glamorous touches of Old Hollywood. 
Extra Perks:
In addition to our facility, we also have owner Becky's artist cabinet of decor that you are welcome to use for your event. We also have two portable flat-screen televisions and a microphone that are available at no extra cost. 
Awards & Notables We opened in 2013 and are proud to have received two awards for the renovation of our building:
• The Southhold Preservation Award by The Historic Preservation Commission of South Bend & St. Joseph County
• The Excellence in Construction Award by the Michiana Area Construction Industry Advancement Fund. 
We have been featured in Style Me Pretty, The South Bend Tribune and in several blogs including Merry Me EventsMegelaine Images ,  Jose Phiney Photography and Purrfect DJ
