Soho 63, formerly Inspirador, ready for business

Posted: Updated:
CHANDLER, Ariz. -

Dozens of clients had to scramble to find new venues for their weddings this past April when the downtown Chandler space once known as the Inspirador shut its doors. That space is now under new ownership, ready for business.

Crews are prepping for a big party, the first hosted inside the new Soho 63. Formally known as Inspirador, the Chandler venue gained unwanted attention last April when it was foreclosed on, leaving as many as 60 brides to be without a place to celebrate their wedding.

"We have made some really great renovations. Just added some really special Soho 63 touches. The facility was in great condition, very well put together, however we really wanted to make it something different and unique and transform it a little bit."

Megan Schmidt, chief event curator for Soho 63 describes the newly renovated space as distinct modern, chic, with a downtown feel. There are several multipurpose rooms.

The Brix on Boston room provides an intimate setting. The Gramery ballroom seats 250 and the terrace offers outdoor space.

Several valley companies have come together to make Soho 63 a success, including Atlasta Catering.

"They really work well together and know how to make an event successful, definitely use the bride and groom and the client's personality and desires to make it exactly what they are looking for."

The new owners took over the venue just over two months ago and have been working nonstop to breathe new life into the place and a new reputation.

"We've reached out to all of the past Inspirador brides that were affected by the foreclosure and are working with them as best we can to get them back in the facility they fell in love with," says Schmidt.

Schmidt, for one, hopes everyone who sees it falls in love with Soho 63.
