Businesses are starting to open up for events after COVID-19, which is great news for the meeting and events industry, especially in Milwaukee. One company took the opportunity to continue with renovations during the pandemic to have their event space ready for July 2020. The new event space is called The Factory on Barclay, which is home of The Original Cheesehead Factory.
The Main Factory event space features 3,500 square feet of space that can accommodate up to 400 guests (300 seated). Currently with social distancing rules, that is less. The space offers the Milwaukee cream city brick and beautiful wood accents throughout with plenty of natural light. The chandeliers provide additional accent to the beautiful space.
A full service bar is made of reclaimed barn wood and hosts a diverse selection on local, craft and micro beers on tap as well as a barista bar. There is a list of exclusive caterers and the space has an ample size kitchen with an area for loading/unloading of food/decor/sound equipment, etc.
I toured the space and felt it very warm and inviting especially with the natural light. The company will be adding a deck off the back which overlooks a bike trail and offers some additional greenery. Parking is a breeze either on the street or in locations right next to the building.
You can incorporate a team building activity within your event and have teams build their own cheeseheads or have them take the factory tour. The space lends itself to gala's that have silent auctions, since there is a separate space to have the auction items and dancing.
