“I have never had a better meal at a wedding. It was everything that I could have imagined and more.”
In the heart of downtown Bluffton, we've designed a sophisticated space with your event in mind. Our charming and neutral aesthetic allows the design of your celebration to stand out in a one-of-a-kind way. Combined with our thoughtfully designed layout, unparalleled service, and exceptional menu offerings, Venue 1223 will serve you and your guests in an unforgettable way.
