    Amazing venue!

    Ashley and Joe made our wedding run so smoothly. We didn鈥檛 have a care in the world. We were able to have a beautiful ceremony without stress! They went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. They offer valet parking services that were so helpful for our older guests. People were stunned at how beautiful the venue was. I would highly recommend this place!

    Lovely Historical Venue

    As a wedding planner, having a venue with a great staff plays a huge part in how well everyone can execute a great event for our clients. I enjoyed holding a ceremony and reception at The Barnett this past August and we loved the space and staff. Joe is so much fun to work with and so efficient and effective. The venue is a historical gem in the city and a wonderful venue for an intimate and elegant wedding. I look forward to my next wedding here.

    Barnett On Washington's reply:

    That you so much for your review of our space and team Wendy! It was a pleasure working with you, and we are looking forward to your next event here as well:)
