The space, great for rehearsal dinners and other events, is opening in Clintonville this fall

Bleu & Fig co-owners Brooke Kinsey and Regina Carmody Prange

Bleu & Fig, a Columbus catering and floral design company, is opening an event space in Clintonville early this fall. Columbus Bride talked with Brooke Kinsey, chef and partner at Bleu & Fig, to learn more. "We're envisioning a lot of rehearsal dinners, baby and bridal showers, anniversary and birthday dinners," Kinsey says. "There's a nice area to open gifts and dine." Here's what else Kinsey says you'll find at the new spot:

*Accommodations for up to 50 guests. "There is space within our space for hors d'oeuvres, and cocktails," Kinsey says. "Then you can move on to whatever type of dinner or event you're having here."

*Food from Bleu & Fig. Since the new spot is Bleu & Fig's signature event space, the catering is done exclusively by the biz. Check out menu offerings on the website.

*A bring-your-own-alcohol setup. "It's a huge cost saver for guests," Kinsey explains. "We'll provide the bartenders.

*A private-event experience. As a private space, there's only one event happening at a time, unlike other venues with multiple rooms or spaces.
