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

10 Downing is a hidden gem downtown and a lovely spot to have a reception for your wedding, or any type of party really! We came across this location while checking out spots downtown, all of which were too big for our small wedding. We were already patrons of Churchill’s and when we realized they had a reception area upstairs we jumped at the chance to check it out. We truly loved how self-contained the space was; the private bar, kitchen and facilities meant our guests didn’t have to leave and cut through the restaurant. In the days leading up to the wedding there was a chance weather would affect our outside ceremony. It was such a relief knowing that we could have the ceremony at 10 Downing should Mother Nature not cooperate (which she did thank goodness!)
From the very first email with Mark I was immensely impressed and knew we had picked the perfect place for the reception. Through the whole process he was extremely patient as we emailed, called and sometimes just dropped by to ask questions or clarify items. He would meet with us before the restaurant opened and even allowed us to get in the night before to set everything up and come back the next day to pick everything up because of inclement weather the night before. Working with Mark was a blessing as he was just as organized as I was which made follow ups very smooth.
The food was absolutely outstanding! We didn’t do one of the dinners or buffet but opted to do dozens of different appetizers. This let our guests try all sorts of things like baked brie, five spice dumplings, and while keeping the chatting and party atmosphere going. Also being able to pick the bar selections helped us save a little bit of money while still having an open bar. The waitstaff seemed very nice and as soon as we walked into the reception one of the bartenders came right over to get us drinks which was fantastic!
We truly loved how perfect the size of the space was for our event and all the details as well!!

My husband and I were married on May 7, 2016 in beautiful Savannah, Georgia. We live in Daytona Beach, Florida so planning an out of town wedding was a little nerve racking. Luckily, we couldn't of been happier with the results. The vendors we chose were a huge part of the day feeling stress free, and turning out better then we imagined.

10 Downing is on the top of that list. We booked this reception venue before seeing it in person, and it was even better in person then pictures. The exact space we wanted for a more intimate size wedding. I can't say enough great things about MARK! He was our contact through the entire process, and always responded so quickly to any questions. Even his staff would respond quickly if he happened to be off. He was very detailed oriented, and made the planning process so easy for me. The space was beautiful, the food was amazing, but what really stood out to us was the service of Mark and all other staff!

10 Downing hosted our wedding reception for 30 people and it was a complete dream! Mark worked with us and our planner Jennifer from Love Actually Weddings and created a delicious menu. From the appetizers to the desert bar everything was delicious. The service team was impeccable at making sure everyone was full and happy. We were able to enjoy the night and dance the night away knowing that everything was taken care of the way we had requested!

We had the reception of our dreams!!!

If you're looking for an amazing affordable wedding in Savannah then choose 10 downing! I researched almost every ceremony+reception sites in Savannah and fell in love with Churchill's. I love the historic building, the manager Mark and assistant manager Kate were so helpful! I had my ceremony and reception here January 31st 2016. I had about 60 people and the space was perfect. We had our send off on the veranda with fake snow and it was beautiful. My wedding was a dream come true thanks to Churchill's :)

We had our son's wedding rehearsal party at Winston's Wine Bar this past weekend and it was fantastic! I worked with Mark, the general manager, throughout the whole process from booking the venue, to food/beverage choices, etc. He was amazing. Mark was always available to answer any questions I had and could not have been more accommodating.
The wait staff did a terrific job and everyone that attended (approx. 55) could not have said enough good things about food/venue.
Thank you again and I would recommend this location to anyone looking for a place to have a special event!

Mark, the general manager, was absolutely wonderful to work with! He is readily available, responds quickly to emails, coordinates with other wedding vendors to ensure the wedding day goes smoothly, politely advises when asked for recommendations, and has a delightful British accent! He is invested in you and your day! He is a necessity for any bride planning a Savannah wedding from out of town. The space is simple and elegant. The food is quality. Our guests were highly complimentary of our wedding reception dinner, dessert, and bar service!

We had our wedding reception here a couple of weekends ago. 55 total guests, including us. It was absolutely gorgeous, and there is not one thing I would change. From the very beginning, Mark was a dream vendor, so quick to respond and give options. Though I am ready for life to get back to normal after the wedding, I will honestly miss communicating with Mark regularly! Beyond helpful! The venue itself is so unique and intimate. Most of our guests stayed at the hotels right across the street, and so just walked over for the reception, no cab or car needed. The food tasting is what sold us on booking 10 Downing, just incredible. Delicious and not at all the standard "wedding fare," though I'm sure they can do that as well. We rented the patio for the night, and that was money well spent. After dinner, it turned into our beautiful private party, with dancing and the open bar outside. Great great spot, a unique and classy venue for an intimate and perfectly run celebration with friends and family. Get married here, end of story. It will be your favorite part of the day.
