"The venue is so beautiful and unique. We had a smaller wedding and there was plenty of room. The string lights outside were also beautiful in pictures. The aesthetic was exactly what I was looking for and unique."

"The convenience. Multiple guests thanked us for having the wedding and reception right on campus there and not having to really leave the grounds. Oh - and the apt upstairs is PERFECT for anyone getting ready/married."

"We wanted an outdoor wedding with an inside for backup if weather did not cooperate. Opening the big garage door was wonderful. The Bridal suite was perfect. Just love the overall "feel" of the venue. Outside ceremony with the trees/green, the architecture, overall amazing. Also, location. Some of us stayed at Beachwalk so the distance back and forth was minimal. The new barrels in the parking lot were a nice addition. It felt like the dance floor extended into the parking lot but gave boundaries."

"So glad we went with this venue! The staff is very responsive and did everything they could to make the wedding planning experience as easy as possible. The space is modern and industrial and needed very little decor to spruce it up! Our guests absolutely raved about how pretty the space was. Our photographer found so many great places for unique and elegant photos at this venue as well. The bridal suite was so convenient to get ready the day of…initially I just thought of this as a nice bonus, but now I could not imagine not having a space to get ready on site."

"Our wedding reception at Barrelhouse at Zorn could not have gone better. The space was perfect and felt intimate despite there being ~160 guests. The team at Barrelhouse helped us achieve everything that we wanted for our special day including having food trucks onsite and setting the room up exactly how we wanted it. The day went off without a hitch thanks to all of their help in the planning process, would highly recommend!"

"Our wedding at The Barrelhouse was in August, and it was the perfect venue for our casual personalities! From the romantic brick road for the bride walk down at the ceremony to the vintage wood and brick to the opened garage door with the patio - it was a setting that provided a touch of history with class. So many of our guests complimented everything about our wedding. They loved the venue and expressed it throughout the evening. Our wedding was a success and the best day of our lives! Thank you, Barrelhouse."

"The Barrelhouse at Zorn is an extremely charming restored industrial style venue oozing with character. It provides just the right amount of "blank canvas" to allow for a variety of décor and styling options making each event truly unique. We had multiple ceremonies/events at the venue with entirely different looks and each turned out beautifully. The layout of the space can be sectioned off in interesting ways so that each event can be styled differently with guests having a new experience each time. The lighting was also perfect and set the right mood we needed for each event. There is ample parking available onsite as well as across the street which really helped make the process easy for us. As a bonus the location is close to the beach and has several interesting outdoor areas for photography.

Sharon and Kristina went above and beyond in covering all the nuances and details of my day and got it completely right! They were easy to work with and prompt with their communication."

"Due to Covid we couldn't have our event at our original venue anymore, but we were so thrilled when we found Barrelhouse at Zorn. The team was so responsive and supportive when we had to move venues 8 weeks away from our wedding, they really helped keep my stress at bay. The venue is so beautiful, and it's such an intimate space, I can't wait to recommend them to anyone I know for any event!"

"Barrelhouse at Zorn graciously hosted our wedding after our previous venue canceled ten days prior to our wedding date. Sharon saved the day without question or hesitation. She turned a nightmare into a dream come true! The outdoor ceremony space was truly unique. The venue space was designed for dining, drinking and dancing under white lights in a rustic old world vide. Michigan City has landed a true gem in venue sites with Barrelhouse at Zorn. "

"The atmosphere and vibe of this venue is just great. Sharon, our venue coordinator, was an absolute dream to work with throughout the entire process. There is an old brick warehouse with red brick roads all around the venue that was perfect for our photos. We had both our ceremony and reception at Barrelhouse at Zorn and it was perfect in every way."

"The Barrelhouse at Zorn is just what Michigan City needed. We hosted our son and now daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner/welcome party at the venue and could not have had a better experience. The team at Barrelhouse at Zorn have created a magnificent and unique event space out of this 150 year old historic industrial building. Our entire family, 3-92, were impressed. With concerns of Covid-19, we especially liked that the glass garage door could be opened to keep fresh air circulating throughout our event. Zorn Brew Works provided reasonably priced beverage packages including great bartenders and staff. We would highly recommend Barrelhouse at Zorn for memorable events. "

"We had to book this venue last minute, just days before our wedding, and everyone was so kind and helpful to us. The staff really go above and beyond to make sure you trust them with your day. The process, even with it being rushed and stressful, went so smoothly at Barrelhouse at Zorn and everything fell into place perfectly in the end. It is a beautiful venue in a perfect location. The icing on the cake was the garage door. It was wonderful to be able to be able to be outside but still a part of the event, and it helps that it is so close to the bar!"

"We did not plan to have our wedding at Barrelhouse at Zorn, it was a miracle they were able to accommodate us only 5 days before our wedding. We thought the venue was perfect, Sharon was amazing to work with, our guests are still talking about how wonderful the entire day was. Our pictures are beautiful, the exposed brick and greenery make for a photo perfect backdrop, even our photographer loved the space. We highly recommend Barrelhouse at Zorn."
