Barrel Cellar

Downstairs you’ll find more than just whiskey barrels. In the basement of the Celebration Center building, you’ll find a secret meeting room. The exposed 1840s rock foundation provides a one-of-a-kind experience. This is the perfect place for a board meeting, private dinner, or for the groom and groomsmen to ready themselves.
