The Reliquary at Urban Artifact

The Reliquary is the historic former sanctuary space atop Urban Artifact’s taproom. Built in 1873 as St. Patrick Church, the building’s basement found new life as Urban Artifact’s brewery and tap room, while occasionally hosting events and concerts upstairs. Starting in 2018, a massive remodel and revamp of the space was undertaken, and the freshly updated space should be open for event in early 2020.

Building Features

The church building retains many classic elements associated with a historic Catholic church, including a stone exterior and a red tile roof. Inside, orate columns support a vaulted ceiling. Most of the windows are no longer stained glass, however there is a large rose stained glass window at the rear of the room.

The former St. Patrick Church in Northside is now home to Urban Artifact and it’s sanctuary event space, the Reliquary.

The venue can hold between 75 and 250 people. It comes with a bridal suite and private bathrooms. Bars have been installed, and bar packages, including Urban Artifact’s many beers as well as wine and liquor, are available.
