For over the past 20 years, we’ve celebrated the Valley’s best. From the top businesses and professionals to the people who make it all happen, Arizona Foothills Magazine’s annual Best of Our Valley contest recognizes Arizona’s crème de la crème across more than 400 categories. From the best doctors and best resort down to the best cup of coffee you can find around town, each Best of titleholder is chosen by those who know the city best – our readers.
Each week, we’ll be highlighting individual winners from Best of Our Valley 2018, who share their advice, insights and thoughts on what it means to be a part of this exclusive list.
The Best of spotlight is on Warehouse 215 @ Bentley Projects, who claimed the Valley’s Best Wedding Venue. Congrats, Warehouse 215!
AFM: Please tell us a little bit about you!
Warehouse 215: Located in the heart of Phoenix’s urban-chic Warehouse District, Warehouse 215 @ Bentley Projects features 10,000 square feet of flexible interior space and a 1,500 square foot, beautifully landscaped patio.
Warehouse215 is the Phoenix event venue for unforgettable galas, weddings, corporate events, presentations, large receptions with live music, sit-down dinners, intimate cocktail parties, rehearsal dinners, tradeshows, fundraisers, business meetings, quinceañera, mitzvahs, photo or film shoots, and more. Two large rooms host the main event while other adjoining spaces transform into areas for cocktails, registration, and other activities.
A 1918 converted linen laundry building with industrial details and modern amenities; Warehouse215 at Bentley Projects finds its home in one of Phoenix’s hottest up-and-coming neighborhoods, just a few blocks from Chase Field and the Phoenix Convention Center. This unique, full-service event venue is filled with original brick walls, wood-beam bow truss ceiling and clerestory windows, converted into modern, multi-functional spaces, and enhanced with crystal chandeliers and sparkling bistro lights.
Warehouse215’s proximity to Downtown Phoenix and its burgeoning food scene, nightlife and new hotels have crowned it as one of the Valley’s most popular private event destinations.
