If you are looking for a one of a kind wedding venue and experience, then look no further than the Wabasha Street Caves. An interesting underground 12,000 square foot facility self-touted as “the most unique” event setting between New York and San Francisco. USA Today named Wabasha Street Caves as “1 of 10 Great Places To Discover These Cities Secrets.”

These hand-carved sandstone caves were used for mining starting in the 1840’s, and have a long history of being utilized for purposes other than mining. The cavernous halls once served as a facility for growing mushrooms and food preservation. In the prohibition era of the 1920s, the caves housed a speakeasy, supposedly frequented by gangsters such as John Dillinger and Ma Baker.

In 1933, the deserted space was transformed into a glamorous and romantic nightclub by the name of Castle Royal. This was a fitting name for the outer structure, which has a likeness of a quaint Tudor castle with its brick walls covered in climbing ivy and the back hillside thick with trees. It’s hard to not fall in love with Wabasha Street Caves. When you add in the possibility of a ghost sighting, you have a one of a kind wedding venue with a macabre romantic seasoning that is sure to please.

Wabasha Street event space boasts a majestic 60-foot bar that will be fully staffed and included in the event rental fee. Additionally, this space will accommodate up 200 guests and will provide tables and chairs, along with event security. They will openly provide you with a list of area caterers with whom they have maintained positive working relationships.
