Warehouse 18 Venues


Warehouse 18 venues is a Wedding Reception Venue located in an old cotton warehouse in Downtown Hickory, North Carolina. We specialize in custom events. This rustic brick building features the original-beautiful wood beams that are offset by crystal chandeliers. There are 2 sides that together can accommodate over 500 people. Picking just one side is perfect for a group of 50 to 200 venue guests. Being more formal Side A is perfect for Wedding Receptions and Showers. It features chandeliers over the tables with cushioned wood chairs. Side B is more casual. With farm style tables and two large chandeliers over the center of the room it is great for reunions and birthday parties. Side B Features The Champagne Room (bridal room) and The Lounge which has a pool table, dart boards, and foosball table. Both Sides have a full bar. We are happy to offer either a full service hosted bar or cash bar. Catering is available for your event at Warehouse 18 or we can deliver to another location.
