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 host both public and private group events in the Tasting Room in compliance with all county, state and federal public health guidelines. As July 2021, with the lifting of Ohio's public health restrictions related to COVID-19, masks are optional (we encourage customers to continue to wear masks if they wish to do so).
Reservations are made on a first come, first served basis. There are two event booking options available to you:
OPTION #1: Book semi-private shared space at the winery for your event!
For groups of 25 people or less, we offer a seating/anchor area for your event in the back area of the winery. It is semi-private and separated from the rest of the Tasting Room, but it is not a fully private space. This space will include some table seating and an anchor area for your group (food, decorations, etc.) - your guests are welcome to sit/gather there or anywhere in the winery space. For a $50 non-refundable reservation fee, we will reserve and set up this space for your group during regular business hours (Tue-Sat 4-10pm). This is a very affordable way to host a party or event for a small group!
For groups of 15 people of less, you can reserve our comfortable couch gathering area in the front section of the winery. This area is perfect for a girl's night, book club, board meeting or other small gathering. You may bring in food (we will provide a table for you). For a $25 non-refundable reservation fee, we will reserve this space for your group during regular business hours (Tue-Sat 4-10pm).
We are not a restaurant, so you may bring in food for your party or event. Buffet-style food service is acceptable. No outside beverages are permitted. You must provide your own paper products and cutlery for food service. There is no bar sales minimum required for these semi-private options, but your group will have full access to alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for sale at our bar.
Reservations for groups of more than 25 people can't be accommodated during regular business hours and should be booked as a private event. If you need to cancel or reschedule your semi-private event, the non-refundable reservation fee can be applied to a new reservation.
OPTION #2: Book a private event at the winery!
The winery can currently accommodate up to 75 people for a private event (with table/bar seating for ~50 people and standing room with café tables for an additional ~25 people) with the winery closed to the public during your event.
A non-refundable Facility Rental Fee is required to confirm your reservation. In addition, you must commit to a bar sales minimum during your event (plus tax and 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). All bar sales made during your event will be applied to your bar minimum and any remaining balance must be paid in full at the conclusion of your event (plus tax/tip). Be advised that we add a standard 20% gratuity for one consolidated tab (you may add more if you wish to acknowledge superior service).
No outside beverages are permitted, but guests will have access to both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages at our bar. 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 bar minimum (or a combination of the two).
We are not a restaurant, so you may bring in food for your party or event. You can use any caterer you wish or provide the food yourself. You must provide your own paper products and cutlery for food service as well as chaffing dishes as needed to keep food at appropriate serving temperatures.

For a private event, you can decorate the winery (within our guidelines - see our FAQs for details) and bring in music or entertainment (we have a Bluetooth speaker if you want to play your special event playlist - you can use your own device or access a playlist on Spotify using our device).
We are committed to providing a comfortable, safe and sanitary environment for you and your guests! Masks are optional. A hand sanitization station will be provided at the front door and in common areas. We have no outdoor seating, but we will open our garage doors when the weather permits! We also have commercial-grade ventilation fans throughout the Tasting Room to ensure fresh air circulation and have installed germicidal UV Light filtration in our HVAC systems. Tables, chairs, and menus are sanitized after guest use, and frequently touched surfaces and restrooms are sanitized by our staff at regular intervals.
