    Amazing Historic venue

    This place is located in the best location near hotels so you dont have to drive far distance after your event.

    So Beautiful!

    This building is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! Regardless to how our wedding planner did us wrong; this building made up for it. Trust me when I tell you Stephanie who helped us was so sweet and the absolute BEST!! I will definitely be going there again for my events. The amount we paid was soooo worth it! It was close to $7,000, but that鈥檚 because we had it on a Saturday and we had the whole building.

    1208 Washington Place's reply:

    Ohh Tia, you and Jesse were a dream to work with. We would absolutely love to have you host another event at 1208! Please stop by and say hello, also I would love to see some photos from your wedding. I know it was just beautiful!
