“Located in Milwaukee, WI, The Gage is an industrial wedding venue. The venue space sits just minutes away from the downtown Milwaukee area and blends its modern aesthetic with a sense of history. The exterior is classic cream brick, while the interior is a spacious blank canvas.

Boasting over 7,000 square feet of usable space, it has more than enough room for hosting extravagant festivities. Throughout, The Gage is defined by elegant architecture and minimalist design that borrows from industrial aesthetics. Exposed beams showcase a pared-back style that is complemented by sophistication in the form of chandeliers and trendy spotlighting. The Gage has a capacity of 300 for seated dinner. Indoor ceremonies may conveniently be hosted at The Gage, or it can simply be used as a reception-only area, depending on what the couple would prefer. The Loft has beautiful wooden features and charming flooring that helps to create an inviting atmosphere. The loft can be used for intimate ceremonies, or may be used for a beautiful cocktail hour. Natural light floods in through French-style doors and windows to create a well-lit space. The Gage also features a large bar, catering kitchen, and private getting-ready suites.

Family owned and operated, there is a collective 30 years of experience in the wedding industry catering through Double B’s Barbecue. We are genuinely passionate about helping people have unforgettable events!  When it comes to planning your big day, we are here to support you in whatever way we can.

All the event staff at The Gage are sooo wonderful!! They are warm, inviting, knowledgeable and so much more! They really took the time to give my fiancé and I the opportunity to visualize our special day there. The Bridal Ready Room and the Grooms Suite had just the most amazing touches!!! The Gage really thought of just about everything to make your day extra perfect- from perfect photo ops to a seamless transition from ceremony to party time. We were told numerous times how AMAZING the venue was and how much fun the guests had! 10/10 would HIGHLY recommend.



Wow - we cannot say enough about The Gage and the staff there! When we first toured the venue it was still under construction so we saw the space and then the photos of how it would look - and they nailed it!! Every detail in the venue was so carefully planned out and just BEAUTIFUL! The staff was also amazing. From the start, Ashley, Nina and Amanda were very open to help us with questions and made sure we understood the contract and pricing, etc. We selected the day of coordination and Ashley was WONDERFUL. She had every detail exactly how we planned and made sure nothing was missed. She was even checking up on us to see if we needed anything or if there was anything she could do to make things better (but it was already perfect). We received several comments from our family/friends on how great the bar staff was and how quickly they got their drinks. We also took advantage of the wrap down service which was great at helping us clean up and be able to enjoy every minute of dancing without worrying about taking everything down. We truly cannot say enough good things about this venue - thank you Ashley, Nina and Amanda for making our day a dream come true!!



The Gage was everything and more! My husband and I can’t stop raving about it. They were so helpful throughout the entire process of planning and took our visions and turned them into a real life dream! Our guests couldn’t stop talking about it during our big day and even after. Ashley, Nina, and Amanda are punctual, caring, trustworthy, and down to earth women. If you’re looking for a venue to have your wedding, The Gage is it!!

You’ll be sure to feel like royalty with a King’s Table like this! 👑
King’s Tables are becoming a very popular option instead of your traditional Head Table for the bridal party! This gives more of a feast style vibe and everyone can better enjoy one another’s company!

Still thinking about all the sweets from the holidays 🍬 🍰 🧁
Dessert bars have been an awesome option to give guests their choice!
Placed at the bottom of our staircase, the mirrored panel makes for a picture perfect backdrop and an awesome opportunity to stop and cut the cake when coming down from your Grand Entrance!
