    WOW. Awesome place! Very beautiful! Jeff the manager was so helpful and gave expert advice on anything I needed. Friday Musicale holds a special place in my heart. Dancing with my bride was so special on that dance floor. If Jeff gives you some advice take it!!. He is one of the awesome factors of Friday Musicale.

    -Sincerely the Dandrea Family

    A beautiful spot with folks who are easy to work with!

    We had our Happily Ever After Party at Friday Musicale and it was fantastic! Jeff and Emily accommodated our every want and had great ideas as well. They provide a lot of flexibility so you can make it your own unique event. They also worked closely with our vendors (who we got to choose!). It was perfect and looking forward to being a member of this venue that does great work in Jacksonville.

    Friday Musicale's reply:

    Thank you so much for your great review and kind words. We enjoyed working with you. Hope we can help plan some other events in the future.

    Great space!!

    I love this all in one venue. This was perfect for my intimate wedding for my family and friends. Mr. Jeff and Cece were amazing and were very helpful. It also is a great place for pictures. My photographer had so many ideas from this space that she bought to life!
