A new wedding venue called "the Mitch" will soon open at 1104 W. Historic Mitchell Street, in the former Scout Gallery. The mission is to provide an affordable venue for weddings, birthdays, quinceañeras, family gatherings and more on Milwaukee's South Side.

Marta Bianchini, co-owner and operator of the Bianchini Experience which includes Cubanitas and Indulge, along with Claiborne Marshall, managing partner in the Sixth Floor wedding, teamed up to make "The Mitch" a reality.

“The Mitch" will allow clients to select vendors of their choice and / or bring in their own cuisine. 

"Our guests will be able to customize their dream event," says Bianchini. "With the high cost of weddings, “The Mitch” aims to offer exceptional service for a small venue rental fee with zero minimums."

Other amenities include complimentary tables, chairs, chair covers, backdrops, private bridal room, bridesmaids’ room, groom’s suite and groomsmen’s room. Parking is free in the three lots located behind the venue.

Tours will begin Monday, Nov. 22and can be scheduled by calling or texting in English or Spanish (414) 467-8141 or email
