Event, hospitality company to open venue in downtown Greenville
by: GSA Business Report
An Upstate event and hospitality company is expanding its brand with an 11,500-square-foot indoor venue in downtown Greenville.
High Spirits Hospitality’s new indoor venue, which has been rebranded as “The 405,” will also feature an attached 3,000-square-foot covered patio along the banks of the Reedy River. High Spirits has been temporarily using the space at 405 Westfield since October, which is a single-story building with a porch and white brick walls along the Swamp Rabbit Trail, but now it will become a permanent part of the company’s array of hospitality choices, according to a news release.
“This will be the largest independent event space in Greenville,” said Tammy Johnson, CEO of High Spirits Hospitality. “It’s ideal for weddings, corporate events, and fundraisers. In many ways, it’s a blank canvas to create from.”
The 405 is characterized largely by its open floor plan and flexible structure with white walls framed by black metal windows and concrete flooring. Both the indoor and covered outdoor spaces are accompanied by scenic views, the release said.
The event space will offer flexible catering options and can host up to 800 attendees. “This is an exciting opportunity for everyone involved with High Spirits Hospitality,” Johnson said. “We can’t wait to show off this amazing location.”
High Spirits Hospitality, which is the parent company to five independent brand companies — Liquid Catering, Events at Judson Mill, Bravo1 Protection, The 405, and High Spirits Event s— also recently opened two new event venues at Events at Judson Mill.
What started as a small bartending service, High Spirits Hospitality, a 100% woman-owned business, has evolved into a growing South Carolina-based company with 200 employees and more than 35,000 square feet of real estate.
