Cellar 624 is a private event space named for the modern wine cellar theme. This one-of-a-kind space in the Fargo-Moorhead area offers the perfect setting for intimate gatherings of up to 100 guests. There are two distinctly different rooms, The Cellar Room and The Wine Cave, that can be rented together or separately depending on the event. Both offer beautiful settings that have been carefully curated to provide an amazing experience for all of our guests. From the moment someone enters the building and heads down the original grand staircase they will feel like they are stepping into something special. They have an onsite manager for all of our events, a custom builtin bar area, cocktail tables, dining tables and linens and many other amenities. They can host a variety of different event types from daytime business luncheons to groom’s dinners and weddings. The possibilities are endless.
A Building Full of History
The biggest misconception about Cellar 624 is that they’re open daily and operate as a normal bar or restaurant. The space is solely an event venue that is customizable for any occasion.
There is some great history behind the beautiful Block 6 building. Block 6 was built over 100 years ago—in 1894 to be exact. It then became home to one of the most popular and classiest department stores of its time, de Lendrecie’s. In 1979, Block 6 was placed on the National Register of Historic Sites. A few years after that the building was converted into apartments and there was even a tea room in the exact location where Cellar 624 sits now. Since that tea room, the space was home to a few restaurants and was formerly known as VIP Catering until Cellar 624 moved in a little over a year ago and the dream of Cellar 624 became a reality. Their designers worked diligently to restore the original brick as well as the articulate ceiling beams that had been hidden for decades.
The space was formerly known by patrons as VIP restaurant & catering. It was a popular lunch spot for many, especially those close by in downtown Fargo. Prior to that, a Chinese restaurant occupied the space. The signs have been left up along the back alley to show the history of the space.

The Vision for Cellar 624
For the last couple of years, the idea of expanding has been on the minds of the owners of the space. Their passion for continuing to bring something new and exciting to the community in hospitality and customer service and their love of the food and wine industry has had them keeping their ears and eyes open for the perfect opportunity. The space became available, and after a few visits and walk-throughs, the ideas started flowing. They eventually landed on a location that would deliver one-of-a-kind experiences for guests looking to host private events. They wanted to preserve the historic aspect of the location while incorporating a warm and welcoming sense of being inside a wine cellar on a beautiful vineyard. Not only did they want to offer the event space, but they wanted a location that could be utilized to share their love of food and wine with the community. This brings us to the wine tasting and educational side of Cellar 624. Demolition of the space took about 3 months and then, with the help of BlueRidge Builders, their General Contractor, Jon and his team were able to bring the idea behind Cellar 624 to life.
