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 of June 2nd, with the lifting of Ohio's public health restrictions related to COVID-19, masks are optional (we encourage unvaccinated customers to continue to wear masks). 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 semi-private shared space at the winery for your event!
This option is only available for a party of 25 people or less. The seating/anchor area for your event is 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 seating and an anchor area for your group (food, decorations, etc.) - your guests are welcome to sit anywhere in the winery. For a $25 non-refundable reservation fee, we will reserve and set up this space for your group anytime during regular business hours. This is a very affordable way to host a party or event for a small group!
We are not a restaurant, so you may bring in food for your party or event. Buffet-style food service is now acceptable as COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted. 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 this option, 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 cannot be accommodated during regular business hours and must be booked as a private 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 75 people for a private event (with table/bar seating for ~60 people and standing room with café tables for an additional ~15 people) with the winery closed to the public during your event. You must 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. No outside beverages are permitted, but we'll offer alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for your guests 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 guaranteed minimum (or a combination of the two). The minimum must be covered/paid at the conclusion of your event, plus tax and tip.
We are not a restaurant, so you may bring in food for your party or event. No outside beverages are permitted. You can use any caterer you wish - and 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. Kim Paradise-Adelstein can be reached at 216-296-3440 or Kim.Paradise-Adelstein@ZackBruell.com to discuss all of the options available. You must provide your own paper products and cutlery for food service.
We also recommend Cheese & Charcuterie platters and grazing tables from our friends at Traveling Wine Merchant to add fun and elegance to your event - contact them at 216-401-6625 or email@example.com for menus and pricing.
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.

We are committed to providing a safe and sanitary environment for you and your guests! Masks are optional, but encouraged for unvaccinated customers. 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 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 and have installed commercial-grade germicidal UV Light filtration systems in our HVAC systems. Our staff will wear masks and 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.
