About Common House

Located in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Common House is a modern wedding venue that welcomes bookings for ceremonies, receptions, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, and bridal showers. The venue boasts a colorful design, with particular attention dedicated to their crafted food and beverages. Originally hosting the Mentor Lodge social club in 1913, Common House was rebuilt and restored to establish an elegant presence for inspiration and a curated gallery of art.

Facilities and Capacity

The main event space at Common House is Vinegar Hall, a banquet-style hall featuring an artistic design and a large, open window with a view of the pristine kitchen. Depending on the layout used, up to 72 people can be seated around tables, or up to 120 can enjoy a cocktail-style reception. If couples wish to host a large cocktail-style reception, the whole club (all 3 floors, including rooftop!) can accommodate up to 200 guests. Common House is covered for all events by liability insurance.

Services Offered

Experienced in hosting wedding ceremonies and receptions at Common House, the staff has a network of vendors throughout Charlottesville they would be happy to recommend to couples, as well as provide their own services for set up and clean up. Event items that are included with booking are chairs, tables, lighting, barware, glassware, china, and flatware. With a fully stocked bar and bartenders, couples can offer their guests an open bar experience.

Cuisine

With full-service catering for both seated and reception events, couples will have in-house catering, waitstaff, a sommelier, and full bar services available. The serving styles at Common House can accommodate family-style as well as servers for a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres. While they can provide dessert, they also allow couples to source their own outside cake from their favorite bakery. The catering team is well-versed in cooking American and local cuisine and can alter recipes for dietary restrictions such as gluten-free, lactose-free, no pork, nut-free, vegan, and vegetarian.

    Best decision for our wedding!

    Having our reception at Common House was the best decision we made for our wedding. Planning the wedding myself, it was such a relief knowing Common House was not only a one-stop-shop but also a guarantee that the aesthetics would be top-notch.

    We received so much positive feedback from our guests: from the delicious food (we heard from many that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had!) to the superb service from the staff (truly 5-star service!) Furthermore, the space was absolutely stunning!

    We knew it was going to be great, but our expectations were still exceeded. We were blown away by Common House and I can’t recommend it enough!
