The Brick in South Bend Indiana

Owners, Becky & Corey Cressy have opened Michiana’s newest banquet facility in South Bend Indiana.  Called “The Brick”, it’s history, design, and location, make it one of a kind in our area.

Ten years ago, Becky & Corey were getting married.  They were in search of a venue that had rustic charm.  They even considered asking a farmer if they could use a barn for their reception.  They wanted what every bride and groom wants for their wedding day … to be unique and have their wedding be memorable for themselves and their guests.

The Brick is the former Eckrich plant, located at 1145 Northside Blvd in South Bend Indiana, between the YMCA and Farmer’s Market.  The brick interior and exterior, make it a dream for the do it yourself bride, who wants to infuse her character in her wedding day.  Photographer’s will enjoy the surroundings, including the St. Joseph river, across the street.

Included is a prep kitchen, allowing you to use a caterer of your choice.  There’s a beautiful bar area, utilizing reclaimed lumber from the Oliver Plow building, and a bar that is absolutely amazing.  An outdoor patio will be installed, as soon as the weather breaks.  Inside, an upper stand area can be utilized for a band or Disc Jockey.  Simple light fixtures look like fireflies at night.

On this visit, I took a few photos and spoke with Becky Cressy, while touring the venue.  I would call this venue, Rustic Industrial.  There is nothing like this in the area, without visiting Chicago.  You can visit their website at www.thebrick.net.  You can also visit their Facebook page: The Brick.
