Unique Columbus Banquet Venue

Eat, drink, and celebrate at The Ellis, a modern industrial event venue and banquet hall in Italian Village in the heart of downtown Columbus.

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.

Our urban banquet space features an open floor plan, an intimate mezzanine overlook, and a dreamy outdoor courtyard — three distinct spaces that can be utilized and transformed to make your event vision a reality.

What People Say

We had our company holiday party at The Ellis and I was told it was the best party our office has ever held. This is all thanks to Lauren and her team for taking care of everything every step of the way. I had very little to stress about during the entire process and am looking forward to having many more parties at The Ellis.

Anna W.

The Ellis was the perfect place for our annual company retreat. It’s rustic industrial feel was a great change of pace from our typical meeting spaces. Our coordinator was extremely helpful and prompt with communication. The catering staff was friendly and the food was delicious. We could not have been happier and would definitely recommend to others.
