At Tigris Events, we understand that finding your perfect venue can be the hardest, but most important, part of the evening planning process. Recently, we’ve noticed the growing trend in clients wanting to explore the option of “industrial-chic” venues. We understand the draw to these venues, as they resemble a raw space, where clients can completely transform it to suit their event. In the photos below, you’ll notice that industrial venues tend to exude both grit and glamour. Most commonly, industrial venues will consist of exposed brick walls, wooden pillars, or visible overhead piping.
Now, while taking these factors and trends into consideration, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite industrial venues across Canada.
