Roof With a View was an amazing location for our wedding reception. The skyline view of Charlotte was the highlight of the venue, but the space itself was perfect for our reception. One thing we appreciated is that the tables and chairs are included, so it was nice to not have to worry about rentals. It truly is a blank slate, so you can make it your own, which makes it more flexible for the rest of the wedding budget! We just used the string lights that come with the rental, as well as candles at each table. Some reviews say the space is dark unless you provide your own lighting, but we really enjoyed the intimate setting of the string lights and candles. A lot of our guests liked having a few drinks on the patio and enjoying the view, while others had a great time on the built-in dance floor. We had a live band and full bar service, which both flowed seamlessly with the space.
We had about 190 guests, which was pushing the limit. If we had many more it would have felt too crowded at each table. We liked that the buffet space is separate from the dining/dancing area, so after the food was served it could be cleaned up without distracting from the festivities. It is worth noting that the kitchen facilities are limited, so be sure to use a catering company who is familiar with the requirements of the space. We used Jerri at Table Decor and More, who was wonderful to work with, and very knowledgeable about Roof With a View.
Brent was easy to work with, although he is very straightforward about the requirements and details. This might rub some the wrong way, but we appreciated his directness.
Overall a gorgeous space, with a stunning city view and an intimate setting. Made for a memorable and special evening with friends and family!

The venue is beautiful and spacious..that is all you get! You can turn it into a beautiful event..However working with Brent and his daughter was not a pleasant experience. They have no compassion , flexibility , and do not tell you things you need to know! Stick to their rules which are many and costly. You better read that contract ..they have a very unprofessional way of doing things..planning a wedding is a big deal and they made it more stressful! We had a wonderful time but sad to say it was in spite of them. Would not recommend unless they hire someone who cares! He tells the bride 6 weeks before her wedding we can't use our caterer who did events there previously! Thankfully we found one who did an awesome job but they also managed to upset our caterer the night of the event!

This space is so amazing. You can truly turn it into as much or as little as you want. This is a place where you really can control your budget. Bring in as much as you can and cut costs where you can. They'll let you do what you want! We hung tapestries, a chandelier, had a band, brought in couches and even used the downstairs lobby as reception area. The patio makes for gorgeous picutres too! I've been to several events there and its always a diffent experience. I transformed the space to be romantic and intimate with the city lights as our backdrop. I could not have asked for a better recpetion venue.

This is an amazing location if you want a fabulous view!!!! This is basically a white box rooftop loft space with a huge balcony, next to & overlooking Panthers stadium & Charlotte's uptown skyline!! Beautiful white lights line all the windows, which surround the space. Very pretty! Simply gorgeous views outside! Has a great dance floor & they will string paper lanterns over it for a fee. I think they need to spruce it up a bit, with some plants or wallcolor or artwork. It's a bit dated & a little too basic, so you have to get quite creative with decor & add a LOT of color!! We loved the space & so did our guests. You can't beat the view!

The Owner (Brent) is completely unreasonable & inflexible. He's very difficult to work with, not to mention, he needs to work on his people skills. He's NOT friendly, very straight up, to the point & will not bend on a thing! Very by-the-book & it's his way or no way. He has extremely riduculous time restrictions for access to his facility, which makes it really difficult for vendors & brides to work with for set up & delivery. We felt like we were nickel & dimed a lot. He also requires you to set up & break down your tables & chairs. He gives you a blank space & that's it. You're also told you cannot have GLASS beer bottles; he insists on cans, which are totally tacky for a classy reception; however you CAN have water glasses, beer & wine glasses, so I don't get it??? He needs to loosen up!

Roof with a View and Brent, Owner, were just perfect! My family did not want a place where we HAD to use their caterer, bar, music, etc. Roof with a View allows you to choose all of your own vendors and provide your own alcohol which saved us a ton of money! We were going for a simply southern romantic theme and it could not have been more perfect. Roof with a View is blank canvas so you can create your dream wedding :)

Roof With a View is an greatvenue. The pros: great space, to do with as you please. You can bring in your own alcohol, vendors, food, etc. And don't forget about the view!! The cons: Brent and his daughters' personalities are a little bland and matter-of-fact. He has certain rules (no sparklers, no confetti, etc) that he will not waiver on. Also, I was not a fan of the fact that he made us break the chairs down at the end of the night (told us this at the reception!! - that was a surprise) He also stood in a corner the entire night watching us, which was kind of strange.

Overall, great spot, great view...does require some work. Really is a blank canvas.
