10 downing’s private banquet room is secluded from, and adjacent to the main restaurant’s roof-top terrace. This luxurious area can be personalized to suit any event. Parties have their own private entrance, bar and washrooms.

The venue's architect has masterfully sculpted a warm, modern interior, showcased by the large north-facing windows. Upon entering, guests are drawn to the exquisitely etched interior glass door that is subtle, yet dramatic before being stunned by the art-deco chandeliers and beautiful tin ceiling of the lounge area. Another door toward the rear of the room leads out on to the picturesque roof-top terrace.

The room is outfitted for all audio visual needs, including a drop-down screen and projection system for slide-shows, and the simplest of connections to enable music from an iPod or similar device to play throughout the venue.

We specialize in wedding ceremonies, receptions and rehearsal dinners, but are also thrilled to host many other kinds of special occasion celebrations and meetings. Read less

I loved my event at 10 Downing! While I didn't check every possible wedding venue in Savannah I think I can safely say you will have a hard time finding a better value for such a beautiful venue for 100 or less guests. The room is so beautiful you barely need to decorate it. Mark, the events manager is wonderful and helpful every step of the way. He recommended most of the vendors I ended up picking and once I let him know who I selected he worked directly with them to coordinate deliveries and decorating. I met with him twice before my wedding day, once while selecting my venue and once to do a tasting for the menu. He asked me questions, listened to what I wanted and made it happen. I have no doubt the wedding would have been just as beautiful even if I hadn't met with him in person. Anytime I e-mailed him with a question he responded within a couple hours. On my wedding day I didn't have to worry about a thing. When I arrived everything was set up exactly how we discussed and it all looked so beautiful. I haven't even mentioned the food. The food is incredible. The catering for the event is done through Churchill's pub and you can select from a wide variety of British or non-British menu items. Every thing I tried was absolutely delicious, plus they will set aside special plates for the bridal party so you don't have to worry about the dreaded bride and groom starving at their own wedding issue that happens at some venues. Highly recommended!

Words can not express my gratitude for Mark and his amazing staff. He was always quick to respond to my questions, concerns, and always had a solution in mind! Our wedding was spectacular! The entire night flowed seamlessly into each hour. From the beautiful ceremony, to the cocktail hour, and then dinner and dancing. The staff made sure everyone had a great time. We had a total of 60 guest and it worked perfectly. While we removed some tables to make room for dancing, we had the guest to one side of the room for our cake cutting, and toasts. Like magic, by the time we were ready for our first dance, the area was cleared and again a seamless transition happened. I could not have asked for a better night. I had so much fun, and my guest could not stop raving about the food, drinks, and great atmosphere! Mark is truly a blessing to work with. He was the reason we chose Churchill's in the first place!! I can not wait to get the photographs back!!
If you are having a wedding in Savannah, please contact Mark. You will not regret it! It is the perfect venue for a wedding!!!! There is not one thing I would change about this night!! Thank you Thank you Thank you Churchill's Pub and Mark for making our dream wedding come to life!!!

It's kind of hard to believe when you're reading vendor reviews when planning your wedding and someone consistently receives 5.0/5.0 stars from past clients. With 10 Downing, believe it! If we had it all to do over again, we would chose 10 Downing every time. Mark and his staff were so friendly and helpful throughout the entire process; that was especially comforting to a couple who was planning their ceremony and reception from out of state. This was the first venue we looked at and we both fell in love the minute we saw the space. Mark was amazing at communicating with us and making sure all of our questions were answered. The space was just the right size and all of our guests had an amazing time. Our ceremony took place inside, with my (now) husband and I saying our vows in front of their three huge windows overlooking Bay Street. After the ceremony, everyone went outside for cocktails while Mark and his staff flipped the inside to hold the reception. It was seamless. Seriously. The food ... I cannot do it justice. Every bite we had was delicious! By the way, the past reviews are not overselling the mac-n-cheese!!! We didn't have a "traditional" wedding by any means, so this meant we also did not have a wedding cake. Instead, our guests devoured the peanut butter pie. I cannot tell you how many people commented on this and thanked us for our decision to serve something so delicious! Mark was constantly in touch and made sure our day went flawlessly; constantly reassuring a bride who was panicking about the rain (me) :) . 200% I would recommend 10 Downing to anyone looking for a ceremony/reception! I'm sad it's over and would do it all over again.

If you are planning having 60-70 guests this is a beautiful venue. Mark Royston is remarkable, professional, responsive & gracious. Mark was more helpful that we ever could have asked.
We ended up having 90 come to our destination wedding & lucky for us the weather cooperated. We were able to rent the beautiful roof top terrace to have our cocktail hour outside and then move inside for dinner and the out to the rooftop again for music and dancing (for those who wanted and for those who did not could stay inside and look out through the windows).
Matt the banquet manager for the evening did a superb job along with the rest of the wait staff. Our menu was the Madison Menu and was excellent. Highly recommend 10 Downing but watch your head count!! Thank You 10 Downing!

we just had our beautiful destination wedding at 10 Downing. I will never be able to say enough about the superior service we received from the General Manager, Mark. He was beyond what we could of ever hoped for. He was helpful, quick with responses, detailed and never got tired of all our questions and concerns. Planning a destination wedding was scary, being out of state makes it hard to communicate effectively all of your expectations for your big day. Mark met with us each time we went to Savannah to finalize details for our big day. He was always available by phone or email. Our tasting appointment was great, it helped us make the hard decisions related to our food and beverage needs. When we decided we wanted to do a heavy appetizer dinner Mark was more than happy to help us with the concerns we had. Our reception turned out amazing. The staff was organized and speedy in tending to the needs of our guests all night. The venue itself was beautiful and helped set the mood for an amazing night. The patio off the venue was closed to the general public the night of our wedding due to weather concerns so the extra space really helped accommodate our guests (we had about 74).

I recently had my destination wedding at 10 Downing and cannot say enough good things about the venue! Mark, the General Manager, is an absolute joy to work with. He was quick to respond, gladly met with us anytime we were in Savannah and never got tired of answering questions. I knew he would make sure everything ran smoothly on the big day (and it did)! We chose to have our ceremony on the rooftop terrace and reception inside. For our intimate wedding of 50, it was perfect! The food was delicious and abundant, service was great and the banquet room/bar area are just gorgeous. I highly recommend 10 Downing for anyone looking for exceptional service and a fantastic wedding experience!

We used Churchill's Pub for a Rehearsal Party in their Ten Downing room. It was spacious, perfectly sized, clean, and a very comfortable and welcoming space.The staff were very professional, easy to work with, and all of our guests found the venue to be very nice. We had heavy appetizers and the choices very broad and unique to Savannah. The choices were very popular with lots of compliiments from all of our guests on how tasty they were. We would use them again, and I highly recommend them.
