Your event should be just that -- AN EVENT. And if you're looking for that special kind of event, the kind that lingers in the memories of your guests for months and years, you've come to the right place.

Events at Refinery isn't just another cookie-cutter ballroom. Far from it . . . this is a venue that gives you the perfect backdrop for an event that makes a big impression.

Our ballroom is 7,000 square feet of beautiful maple hardwood floors with incredible floor to ceiling windows. There is nothing that compares to natural light, and the beautiful glow of the night. Events at Refinery also has an incredbile built in bar that is contemporary and elegant.

With such high end finishes, our ballroom takes every event to the next level of elegance and class. It's the perfect canvas for any decor style.

Our wedding packages include everything from linens to custom designed fresh floral table arrangements. We also have a staff of professionaly trained event coordinators, decorators, and bartenders.

We are also one of the few venues in the area where you have the ability to choose your own caterer. No pre determined menus, and no in-house caterer.

Let us take the stress out of planning your wedding & reception. Events at Refinery, where the difference is in the details. Contact us today at 217-693-4441 or paris@eventsatrefinery.com and megan@eventsatrefinery.com Read less

My Husband & I used Events at Refinery to host our Rehearsal Dinner & it was absolutely fantastic! We had originally planned to have the dinner at another location & when plans unexpectedly fell through Michelle & her team were there to help me all the way! Working with her was so easy & we received so many compliments on the evening! I couldn't have imagined a better place to host our family friends and to kick off our wedding weekend! The staff was kind & professional and I didn't have to worry about a thing! I would recommend this venue to any and all Brides-to-be! Thank you! Thank you!

The refinery was amazing!! They set everything up for you. All you have to do is bring in the decorations and tell them what you want, and they do it. So stress-free. We also had the ceremony there, and they were very helpful with planning that.

I booked this location for my wedding reception 18 months before the date of the event. I checked many times to make sure the date was free, and was informed each time it was. When I went in saw the place, it was okay. It was really the package that made it seem like a good deal. I put my deposit down the day I saw the place to save the date (the date was very important to me and my fiancée). My check was cashed and I thought I could relax for a bit.

However, I was informed a month later that the date “accidently” got double booked and when I was told the situation would be resolved by Friday. I did not hear back that Friday and was not informed until I contacted them, that I was just out of luck for that date. Trying to get my deposit back was another hassle.

All in all, this was an extremely frustrating and disappointing experience, and I would never recommended this place to anyone.

Events at Refinery responded with the following comments:

We understand the frustration of this user as I would be very upset as a bride. We take every client and review to heart and it was very difficult to find out that this unfortunate mistake did happen. It was very difficult and heartbreaking to even have to inform the bride of this incident. Events at Refinery has switched to a new booking system and sometimes as amazing as technology can be, it can also work against us. I would like everyone to rest assured that all the of the kinks are worked out and all current and future bookings are secure as we have taken a triple check of all of our clients and their secured dates. Once we found this mistake, we contacted the bride immediately as we know every day that goes by is critical when planning a wedding. Once she had decided that she could not have her wedding with us, we refunded her deposit within 45 minutes of her phone call that she would like her money refunded. No hesitation, no questions asked. We take extreme pride in the excellent products and services that we provide to our clients. Every couple is special to us and we love being a part of their special day. Again, our sincerest apologies go out to this couple and we wish them all the happiness starting their lives together!
