Water Street District Welcomes The FH Event Center

February 20, 2023

DAYTON, OH- Crawford Hoying is excited to announce the opening of The FH Event Center in Water Street District in downtown Dayton. The FH Event Center is owned and operated by the same individuals that brought 1Eleven Flavor House, a hip Caribbean restaurant full of flavor, to Dayton.

“With the AC Hotel by Marriott Dayton opening in March, the concept and close proximity of The FH Event Center will make for a great addition to Water Street District,” said Matt Starr, Executive Vice President of Commercial Real Estate and Leasing at Crawford Hoying, the owner and developer of Water Street District.

The FH Event Center is located at 312 N. Patterson Boulevard, previously occupied by Basil’s, which is less than a mile away from 1Eleven Flavor House and within walking distance of the numerous hotels, restaurants and entertainment that Water Street District has to offer.

The FH Event Center serves as a multi-functioning modern facility with indoor and outdoor spaces that can accommodate parties up to 125 guests. The open floor plan of the indoor space covers 4,800 SF and houses a main room with a large bar area, fully-functioning kitchen and a stunning bridal suite. Meanwhile, the 2,000 SF of outdoor space is equally as impressive with its stunning views of the Great Miami River.

“Our team is hoping to bring a new and show-stopping venue to the residents of Dayton and the surrounding areas, where our clients are blown away by the amenities and atmosphere,” said Demetrius Wright, owner of The FH Event Center. “We want to provide consumers with a once-in-a-lifetime, memorable event that keeps them coming back to host all of their events with The FH Event Center.”

The FH Event Center operates as a privately-owned venue to host events and attractions such as private weddings, receptions, corporate events and parties. Several food and beverage packages are available, as well as a preferred vendor listing for decor, photography, event planning, music, videography, florals and other party rental needs.

The FH Event Center is the latest establishment announced at Water Street District, which is already home to numerous entertainment and dining destinations including Day Air Ballpark, Moeller Brew Barn, Lock 27, Local Cantina, Sueño, Tender Mercy, Little Fish, Flyboys Deli, Square One Salon & Spa, Winan’s Chocolate + Coffee, Warped Wing Brewing Company, Dayton Barrel Works and more.
