With the Mount Pleasant landscape more crowded than ever, newcomer Cabinet Warehouse knew they had an opportunity to offer the community a space that event planners couldn’t find anywhere else. By renting out this industrial-inspired warehouse for weddings and private events, the three partners behind Cabinet Warehouse are generating additional revenue to help build their future gin distillery - Cabinet Spirits.
From the moment they first stumbled upon the space, they knew they had found something special. With over 7,000 square feet of industrial glory, polished concrete floors, and three skylights, the space inspired them from day one. Although they were looking for the perfect home for Cabinet Spirits, they immediately saw its potential to be much more.
In their first month they secured over $15,000 in bookings – unlocking the hidden value of the unique space. From private parties to company events, guests were immediately drawn to this blank canvas.
Built in the 1950s, this future home of a gin distillery was once an old lumber warehouse and it’s available in 2016 only for events and productions. Peters, one of the Cabinet partners explains “The very first thing we did was remove the second level. This allowed us to open the space up and bring in some much needed natural sunlight - before, it was filled dimly lit and filled with rows and rows of fluorescent light. It now has three massive skylights that have completely transformed the space. Peters says. “When people come through they are like wow - it’s very unassuming from the street level.”
In addition to hosting big name brands like Lululemon, Cabinet Warehouse has held workshops, video production, photo shoots, networking events, weddings and bar mitzvahs. According to Peters, regardless of activity, guests love that the space is completely customizable. “People love that when they walk into the space they see a transformable blank canvas ready for their idea. It’s allowed us to open our doors to such a wide mix of unique ideas.”
One thing is clear: this space is the perfect spot to bring your rock solid ideas to life. And while it’s only available in 2016, Peters assured us that they have plans to include an event space in Cabinet Spirits next year. Hurry, plan your next adventure and get into this space!
