Welcome to The Ellis

The Ellis is a modern industrial event venue in the heart of Italian Village in downtown Columbus, Ohio. The urban event space features an open floor plan and an outdoor courtyard.

Constructed in a historic early 1900s industrial building, the venue features exposed brick, high ceilings, arched windows, and polished concrete floors. Modern fixtures and décor highlight the original structure, including the wood trellis wall with preserved moss, globe lights, and the built-in statement bar with a reclaimed bar front.

With over twenty years of experience planning and executing events, excellence is part of everything we do. Our dedicated staff takes pride in the details and will be there to make your day stress-free.

What People Say

I seriously will rave about The Ellis forever!!! From the day we first toured the venue until the moment we walked out the door at the end of our reception, they were nothing but helpful, informative, knowledgeable, and all-around great people to work with. All of their in-house vendors were fantastic people to work with as well. Not only did the timeline of our wedding day move seamlessly, but the entire planning period did too.

The Ellis was absolutely amazing!! Our food was incredible by Gourmet Fresh…Our DJ was so fun, our cake was gorgeous and delicious, and the bartenders were quick and so friendly…At the end of the day, what really wowed us was how on schedule our wedding was because the staff was ON IT. They were incredible. We are so grateful for every vendor at The Ellis and even 4 months later we still can’t think of one thing we wish went differently!
