Cellar 624 is a private event space named after the theme of the modern wine cellar. This one-of-a-kind space in the Fargo-Moorhead area provides the perfect setting for intimate gatherings of up to 100 people. There are two separate rooms, The Cellar Room and The Wine Cave, which can be rented together or separately depending on the event. Both offer beautiful frames that have been carefully selected to provide an amazing experience for all of our customers. From the moment someone enters the building and descends the original grand staircase, it will feel like they are entering something special. They have an on-site manager for all of our events, a custom built-in bar area, cocktail tables, dining tables and linens and many other amenities. They can host a variety of different types of events, from daytime business lunches to bridal dinners and weddings. The possibilities are limitless.
A building steeped in history
The biggest misconception about Cellar 624 is that they are open every day and operate like a normal bar or restaurant. The space is purely a customizable event venue for any occasion.
There is a great story behind the magnificent building in Block 6. Block 6 was built over 100 years ago, in 1894 to be exact. It then became the headquarters of one of the most popular and classy department stores of its time, Lendrecie’s. In 1979 Block 6 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A few years later, the building was converted into apartments and there was even a tea room on the exact spot where cellar 624 is now. From this tea room, the space housed a few restaurants and was once known as VIP Catering until Cellar 624 moved in just over a year ago and Cellar 624’s dream came true. Their designers worked diligently to restore the original brickwork as well as the hinged ceiling beams that had been hidden for decades.
The space was once known to customers as the VIP Restaurant and Catering. It was a popular lunch spot for many, especially those near downtown Fargo. Before that, a Chinese restaurant occupied the space. Signs were left along the alley to show the history of the space.

The vision of cellar 624
For several years, the idea of expanding has been in the minds of the owners of the space. Their passion to continue to bring something new and exciting to the community in hospitality and customer service and their love of the food and wine industry has led them to keep their ears and eyes open for the perfect opportunity. The space was freed up, and after a few visits and passages, the ideas began to flow. They finally landed on a venue that would offer unique experiences for clients wishing to host private events. They wanted to preserve the historic look of the place while incorporating a warm and welcoming feeling of being inside a wine cellar on a beautiful vineyard. Not only did they want to provide the event space, but they wanted a venue that could be used to share their love of food and wine with the community. This brings us to the wine tasting and educational side of winery 624. It took about 3 months to demolish the space and then, with the help of BlueRidge Builders, their general contractor, Jon and his team were able to bring the idea behind the 624 cellar to life.
