The Crystal Ballroom at The Burt is an elegant wedding venue located in the historic district of downtown Hutchinson, Kansas. Built in 1901, The Burt was originally home to the Shaw Theatre but has since housed a cafe and auto repair shop, among other businesses. The building was purchased in 2017 with the intention of opening a museum, but the Crystal Ballroom was reopened and returned to its former glory. It is now available to play host to ceremonies and receptions.
Facilities and Capacity
The Crystal Ballroom offers various other locations for use during weddings. The nearly 15,000-square-foot venue contains a more intimate hall, two get-ready rooms, and a commercial kitchen. The ballroom can hold 190 of your closest loved ones for a seated meal, lit by glittering Maria Theresa chandeliers. Original maple floors give off a honey glow in the sunlight that comes through the numerous windows. Exposed brick walls add a modern, industrial edge to an elegant space. The adjacent Empire Room is attached to the Crystal Ballroom by large doors that can be folded back to create space for additional guests. This room can seat an additional 60 of your loved ones, bringing the total capacity up to 250. The Foxtrot Lounge and Tango Parlor are primarily get-ready rooms, but can also be used for a moment of solace from the busy occasion. The Tango Parlor houses a private powder room for the wedding party to use at their discretion. An onsite commercial kitchen can be used by your caterers for convenient, prompt service. Rhapsody on B, our newest venue, is perfect for ceremony. Matching the elegance of the Crystal Ballroom with gorgeous chandeliers, exposed brick walls and walnut flooring, you can seat up to 250 guests for your nuptuals then head straight up to the Crystal Ballroom for your reception and dance.
The Crystal Ballroom at The Burt endeavors to make your wedding as seamless and hassle-free as possible, and to this end, they offer a range of services. Couples who opt for this venue gain access to event planning software to aid in their coordination. Multiple amenities are provided to improve entertainment quality. A projector and screen can add an element of personalization to the space, whether you want to display a monogram or photos of loved ones. Tables and Chiavari chairs can be provided for meals, while special tables and barstools are available for cocktail receptions.

Wedding Reception at the Crystal Ballroom
We were lucky enough to celebrate our sons wedding reception at the beautiful Crystal Ballroom in Hutchinson. I can not emphasize enough how breathtaking this venue is. The pictures are gorgeous but to really understand the beauty of this venue, you need to see it in person. The staff is equally amazing!! They were on site to answer and handled any questions or concerns we had IMMEDIATELY. They were there to see to it that this evening was perfect in every way. The tables, linens and chairs (provided by the venue) were elegant and gave the perfect touch to the ballroom. The separate bridal suite and grooms room is the perfect space for the bridal party to get ready and just be together to talk and laugh and make those once in a lifetime memories. I just can’t say enough about this venue and staff. So, if you want a magical, breathtaking venue for your dream wedding/reception ( or any special event) the Crystal Ballroom at the Burt in Hutchinson is where you need to go!!Sent on 11/20/2019
