Weddings in the Crypt Open Evening

Wednesday 5th April, 2023

An intimate wedding open evening in the heart of Chester.
Registration now open! 


The Show

A brand new wedding venue in the heart of Chester. 

Join us at a luxe open evening at Arthouse Café, a brand new intimate wedding venue in the heart of Chester. See the beautiful 13th century Crypt dressed for a wedding. The Crypt is one of only a few remaining of its age and condition, thought to be constructed around 1230. 

Whether it’s a three course set menu you want them to design with you, a buffet or range of canapés, they have the experience, patience, enthusiasm and know how to work with you to make your day unique.

Enjoy an evening of live music, delicious canapés & tasters, along with a goody bag for every couple and complimentary glass of fizz. There will also be a hand-picked selection of local wedding suppliers on hand to chat to you about your wedding.

The Venue

Our venue space for hire consists of three areas. Our ground floor and first floor cafe and our lower ground floor Makers Space, also known as the Crypt.

Having lots of area to utilise we work with our private event customers to agree which spaces are required and how they should be utilised, for example we could use the first floor for after drinks or pre-drinks or for dining and use the crypt space as a dance floor.

During events we make the venue feel special with dimmed lights, fairy lights and candles.

When we utilise the Crypt for dining, we can install a long table down the length of the Crypt which is able to accommodate up to 30 people. If you are looking to host an event with more than 30 we can reconfigure our first floor to host up to 50 people.

The venue includes old printing equipment and furniture which adds to the unique charm of the venue.
