CLE Urban Winery is the perfect venue to host your party, fundraiser or special event! Whether you are celebrating a special milestone with family and friends, holding a community gathering or meeting, raising money for a great charitable cause or looking for a unique place for corporate and networking events — let us be your host!
We have resumed hosting public and private group events in the Tasting Room in compliance with all county, state and federal public health guidelines. Masks are required unless you are actively eating or drinking. Reservations are made on a first come, first served basis. Please review the following information carefully as some of our event policies have changed… there are two event booking options available to you:
OPTION #1: Book shared space at the winery for your event!
Due to social distancing restrictions, this option is only available for a party of 16 or less (two tables of up to 8 people). The seating area for your event is in the back area of the winery – it is separated from the rest of the Tasting Room, but it is not a fully private space. For a $25 non-refundable reservation fee, we will reserve and set up this space for your group anytime during regular business hours (subject to availability). This is a very affordable way to host a party or event for a small group!
You may bring in food for your party or event, but food items must be packaged and served as individual, plated portions or in a boxed lunch-style individual portion. No self-service, buffet-style food service is permitted, and no outside beverages are permitted; see our FAQ section for more information. You must provide disposable paper products/cutlery for food service. There is no bar sales minimum required for this option, but your group will have access to our cash bar.
Gatherings of more than 16 people (as specified above) cannot be accommodated during regular business hours at this time and must be booked as a private event to ensure appropriately distanced seating is available for all guests during the event. If you need to cancel or reschedule, the non-refundable reservation fee can be applied to another event at the winery.
OPTION #2: Book a private event at the winery!
The winery can currently accommodate up to 50 people for a private event (50% of our normal capacity) with socially-distanced seating for all guests and with the winery closed to the public during your event. You will commit to a bar sales minimum during your event (not including tax or staff gratuity) which varies depending on the day of the week and time period(s) that you wish to reserve the winery space for your private event (see below for details). In addition, a non-refundable reservation fee of 10% of the bar minimum is required to confirm the reservation. We can offer a cash bar for your event guests or the host may choose to offer an open bar with one consolidated tab in order to meet the guaranteed minimum (or a combination of the two). The minimum must be covered/paid at the conclusion of your event.
You may bring in food for your party or event, but food items must be packaged and served as individual, plated portions or in a boxed lunch-style individual portion. No self-service, buffet-style food service is permitted, and no outside beverages are permitted; see our FAQ section for more information. If you want catered food for your event, our preferred caterer, Zack Bruell Events, can provide food options as well as servers at the event to ensure the food service is safe and sanitary. Zack Bruell has numerous options that are compliant with all Board of Health/CDC restrictions and requirements. Kim Paradise-Adelstein can be reached at 216-296-3440 or Kim.Paradise-Adelstein@ZackBruell.com to discuss all of the options available. If you wish to use a different caterer, they will need to follow our food service protocols. You must provide disposable paper products/cutlery for food service.
For private events, we can accommodate special alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage orders for the event (bringing in outside beverages is not permitted). Private event reservations must be secured at least one week prior to the event date. Cancellations made less than one week prior to the event will incur an additional 10% cancellation fee (of the required minimum for the period of your event), and any expenses incurred for special orders or arrangements made for the events must also be paid at the time of cancellation. The non-refundable reservation fee can be applied to another event at the winery if you need to reschedule.

Our previous policies regarding parking, outside beverages and decorations remain unchanged (see the FAQ section of the website for details).
We are committed to providing a safe and sanitary environment for you and your guests! Masks are required to be worn in the Tasting Room unless you are seated and engaged in eating or drinking. A hand sanitization station will be provided at the front door and in common areas – we ask all guests to sanitize their hands upon arrival (and as needed). We ask that guests first find a place to sit and we will take their drink orders. To ensure that we maintain appropriate social distancing, we will not permit guests to stand in groups within the Tasting Room – we kindly ask you to remain in your seat while you enjoy your drink and to wear your mask whenever you are out of your seat. We also ask that guests do not move or rearrange tables, chairs and stools as they have been deliberately arranged for compliance. We have no outdoor seating, but we will open the garage doors when the weather permits! We also have commercial grade ventilation fans throughout the Tasting Room to ensure fresh air circulation.
Our staff will wear masks and will frequently wash their hands. Tables, chairs, and menus will be sanitized after each guest use, and frequently touched surfaces and restrooms will be sanitized by our staff at regular intervals.
