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.Sent on 09/10/2019

The Barnett was the first and last place we needed to see to know it was the perfect place for our wedding ceremony and reception. The building is stunning and provided the perfect backdrop and size for our wedding ceremony and reception of 85 guests. My husband and his groomsmen really enjoyed the cigar lounge prior to the festivities. And most importantly, Joe was absolutely incredible to work with-- he was responsive and informative from the start, and was so helpful with my family in getting my Dad in and out of the building via the accessible entrance. On the day of our wedding, he did everything possible to make it perfect, including helping us pack up the trunk with our personal items at the end of the night, and bringing my wedding party a bottle of "wine away" to get out the red wine someone spilled on my wedding dress!! Wow...you can't beat that.Sent on 02/06/2018

I recently had the pleasure of performing a wedding at Barnett on Washington and was very impressed from the moment I waked in the door. The staff was welcoming and helpful throughout the entire day. If you are looking for a location that provides elegance as well as a cozy atmosphere, this is one to consider. I'm hopeful to find myself back there in 2016 for more ceremonies!
