Cescaphe's VIE To Open New Outdoor Space

A wedding set up inside VIE, Philadelphia.

VIE, the latest venue from Joe Volpe’s Cescaphe Event Group, is planning to open a brand new outdoor space with a privately enclosed, outdoor courtyard just off the main ballroom.

(To review, VIE is a 17,000-square-foot urban space (yep, 17,000-square feet) on North Broad Street just down the block from Marc Vetri’s Osteria and Alla Spina, and Stephen Starr’s Route 6 restaurants. In it, up to 1,200 of your nearest and dearest can enjoy your completely customizable, state-of-the-art wedding, as it’s got loads of techy capabilities and even an area for things like live cooking stations.)

The outdoor space will have a retractable cover to provide insurance in case of rain, and can really be used in any way you want, whether it’s for a fresh-air ceremony, an al-fresco cocktail hour, or even something like a cigar lounge to give weary-from-dancing guests somewhere to hang during band breaks.

It’s slated to be open in July—brides are already booking!—so be sure to check it out if you’re digging the indoor-outdoor combo for your big party. VIE, 600 North Broad Street, 215-238-5750.
