St. James 1868
Opening in January 2020, this 150-year-old European-designed church, designated by the city of Milwaukee as historically significant, is being thoughtfully repurposed to become the ideal location for weddings, galas and more. It will include two unique event spaces, The Abbey and The Hyde. The Abbey is in the original church sanctuary and will maintain much of its historic character with a fresh face lift and mechanical updates. This space will accommodate up to 300 people and includes a beautifully designed outdoor 1500-square-foot English-style courtyard garden, which can be tented. The Hyde, the former church gymnasium, is a two-story open space with vaulted ceilings and has tall windows with filtered natural light. This space will accommodate up to 170 people. Updates include the addition of an open cuIinary kitchen and an adjoining outdoor 1500-square-foot terrace, which can also be tented.
