Incredibly Unique & Artistic Space with Great Ambiance & Support Team!

Event Type: Wedding Ceremony
"My husband and I hosted our wedding rehearsal, ceremony and reception at The Speak Easy in Broadripple/Indianapolis, IN. Upon seeing the space for the first time, we absolutely fell in love with the uniqueness, character and ambiance it has. We met with Maureen, and she was incredible from start to finish with communication, details, direction and recommendations on vendors! It was so nice to have a point of contact who we knew could be counted on and who was very timely in communication leading up to our big day. Our guest count was roughly 140 guests and the balcony was a perfect spot to host the ceremony. Having a full-bar and kitchen area was a nice touch and a huge help for our bartenders to setup. There was plenty of space for us to utilize to host 15 guest tables, a DJ booth, photo-booth room, a dessert table, gift table area, a 12x12 dance floor and a huge 15’ long head table! We were so impressed with this space and everything that was offered along with it. We opted to have the space cleaned for us, which was a great perk, they offered large drapes to cover areas if you needed, as well as keg tubs/taps and much more. The space was exactly as we wanted it upon arrival, and once again, Maureen did not disappoint with her attention to detail. If you are looking for a unique space for a unique event, this is it! We highly recommend you stop by and see how large an d beautiful the space is! Of all of the incredible details we had on our big day, people are still talking about the details of The Speak Easy. From the décor to the industrial and artistic splashes of detail the space holds, we were thrilled to be able to partner with Maureen and The Speak Easy and create lifelong memories here in our hometown.
