The Columns

Located on the south side of the Findlay Market, The Columns is a new event venue in the heart of Cincinnati, Ohio that is perfect for intimate or private type of weddings. The owners chose this location with the aim of letting people meet, socialize and marry in a stunning, sophisticated and unique set-up.  You will have the lively market as your backdrop and be surrounded by a community of vendors that you can actually use or hire on your special day. This wedding venue actually holds an interesting history dating back to 1874 where it was first built to be a 4-story (the tallest building on the block) toy knick-knack department store owned by Moses Goldsmith; fast forward to 2020-2021, this establishment underwent a top to bottom renovation, and The Columns was born. The mesmerizing Romanesque revival and Italianate façade design of the building was retained.

The owners Miriam and Jake were awesome host. The space is gorgeous and spacious. The balcony and restrooms add lots of flair to this space. My guest were very impressed. The decorations that we used made the space even more spectacular. I would definitely recommend people to check out The Columns if they are having any type of event.
