The Ballroom - with dramatic arched windows and an amazing view of South Potomac Street, the ballroom has been laid out for a variety of events including wedding and receptions. The wood floor, soft ivory walls and acoustical paneling create a classy atmosphere and highlight the room's grand chandelier - which can be customized to match the colors of your theme. The capacity varies from 300 people seated in chairs for a wedding to 224 (max) seated at banquet tables. This grand space includes an audio-visual system with recessed projection screen, surround sound and a catering kitchen.
The Main Auditorium - the stage of the historic auditorium offers a unique and personalized ceremony you can't simulate at most other venues. Your guests will be seated in the audience (with VIP friends and family in the box seats) while the ceremony takes place on stage in front of the red curtain. Flexibility with lighting, sound, stage design and projection allows you to customize your ceremony to compliment your theme. Afterwards, the curtain may be raised to reveal the reception set up backstage, or, guests may proceed to the Ballroom for a separate reception.
The Grand Lobby - contains a slightly muted color scheme before transitioning into the vibrant gold and burgundy colors you’ll find inside the historic auditorium. The Grand Staircase creates a dramatic backdrop for a bridal entrance or event photos. Chairs can be set up to face the staircase for the ceremony, then guests may proceed to the Ballroom for a separate reception. An in-house audio system is available for low-key background music and announcements.
The Cocktail Lounge - is the perfect place for guests to gather for a "cocktail hour" while the bridal party finishes with photos. This space can accommodate up to 100 guests and has a large custom bar, hi-top tables with stools and a gorgeous view down the grand staircase.
The Bridal Suite - is included with all wedding/reception Ballroom rentals and is located on the third floor of the Performing Arts Center. It is equipped with two large mirrored dressing stations, full length mirror, a garment rack, 2 lounge chairs and large restroom. The room monitor may be programmed to view your reception event space.
