Footnote: The Most Unique Wedding Venue in Downtown Winston-Salem


There is a great new wedding venue in Winston-Salem. Owned and operated by Foothills Brewing, Footnote is the wedding venue you have been searching for. Tucked between Foothills and Bookmarks in the heart of downtown, Footnote is the perfect place for a small, intimate wedding or a great big bash!

It seems obvious that Foothills Brewing would be the perfect team to create the newest, most unique venue in town. Since opening the brewery in 2005, Foothills has become a Winston-Salem staple, and Footnote is a great new addition to the brand. Marketing Director Ray Goodrich said, “Foothills opened our third location earlier this year. Like the Brewpub and Tasting Room before it, Footnote is a hybrid of the things we love – namely good drinks and great times.” They were already providing great food and amazing beer, adding a great venue just ties it all together.

And, it’s not just a great venue. There is a lot to enjoy at Footnote every day. They are open Monday through Saturday from 7am-11pm and Sunday from 9am-4pm for house-roasted coffee and freshly made pastries in the morning. Signature cocktails, wine, craft beer and small plates are also available as the day goes on. Be sure to check out their Grab n’ Go cooler, too, for a quick breakfast or lunch on the go.

The Space

This incredible, adaptable, fresh venue can meet all your wedding needs. The space itself is extremely versatile and can accommodate a small, intimate wedding or a larger party of up to 250 of your closest friends. You will have access to a state-of-the-art audiovisual system, outdoor patios on both sides of the building and ample parking to accommodate all of your guests’ needs. The downtown location is also very convenient to several area hotels for your out-of-town guests. 

The Food

Footnote has got you covered when it comes to catering. They will work with you to provide a custom menu that will really wow your guests. From small plates to a full buffet, you have a full range of options to choose from to make your wedding food perfect. One thing is certain; whatever food you choose, it will be made fresh from scratch with the love of Executive Chef Shane Moore and his talented staff.

The Drinks

Since Footnote is owned by Foothills Brewing, you will have the advantage of a full range of drinks available for your wedding. Footnote can provide a full-service bar with a wide range of cocktails, wines and, of course, some great Foothills beer on tap. They also have some amazing house-roasted coffee that will be an ideal complement to your wedding cake or dessert bar.
