About Us

Both located in Ann Arbor, Michigan The Circ and Root are two wedding venues located within the same building. They can be rented together or separately and provide you with both indoor and outdoor options. The building, the 210 South First building, began as a brewery in the 1850s, but now offers an industrial-chic location for memorable nuptials.

Facilities and Capacity

Within The Circ are two bar areas that feature a combination of wood, metal, and brick decor and architectural elements. There is also a roof deck which boasts views of the sunset for an evening of romance. For buffets, up to 250 individuals can be accommodated in this venue or 175 people for seated dining.

The Root is located underground and features brick arches with stone caverns. Wood accents are found throughout as well as inviting lighting. Up to 100 people can enjoy a seated dinner within this space or 250 people in the case of a buffet.

The Circ and Root can be set up to host different parts of your reception in different spaces. A common timeline is for guests to start by enjoying hors d’oeuvres and champagne on The Circ Roof deck. Then they can move to The Circ Main area for dinner and toasts. Finally, you and your guests can dance the night away in the Root. In addition to wedding receptions, you may also host showers, your engagement party, the rehearsal dinner, and more in the various spaces.

  • I rented the back lounge and roof deck for a surprise engagement party and could not have been happier. From the initial booking to the very last drink poured, the Circ staff exceeded my expectations in every regard. The back room has great ambiance for more intimate gatherings without feeling cramped. We had 40 guests with room to spare, although the main area could easily accommodate larger parties. The service was top-notch and the food was great; I would highly recommend!
