11/10! Can we do it all again!?
We had a wonderful experience with MSB. The venue speaks for itself and we were able to add personal touches in every way. We had at least 185 people fit, drink, eat, dance comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful in decor recommendations and the venue provides beautiful furniture pieces to add to the venue. We loved our experience, and guests continue to compliment the beauty of the venue.Sent on 12/02/2019

Historic Charm & Great Staff
Main St Ballroom was the perfect location for our wedding! The historic charm and style of the venue is the main reason we chose it. The stone walls and polished concrete floors paired with the string lights and chandeliers make a beautiful starting palette for any design vision. The bridal suite and grooms room were perfect spaces for us to get ready in, and we could stay separate the way the venue is laid out. It was AWESOME to have the venue from 8AM to midnight. You are able to bring in any vendors you want which provides freedom and flexibility. The space can handle a lot of people, but make sure to think about your floor plan and dinner preference (buffet or formal). We fit 190 in the bar room for cocktail hour with the barn doors closed, but it was very tight. We had a formal seated dinner with that number in the main ballroom, with plenty of room for a dance floor. Communication with the venue managers is quick and consistent throughout your planning process and day of managers are very helpful and available to you the day of your event. A little more expensive compared to some others, but the full day window, flexibility of vendors, unique charm of the venue, and positive helpful staff make it 100 % worth it! Highly recommend this venueSent on 04/02/2020

Entyse Lyfe had the opportunity to work with Kate and the Main Street Ballroom team for their Open House event! It is truly great as a planner to work with a Venue that is upfront, honest and flexible. Main Street is all of that and so much more! This space is amazing for any event. The natural elements of Main Street Ballroom are great for capturing beautiful photos for your most special moments! We highly recommend Main Street Ballroom!
Main Street Ballroom is such a unique and gorgeous space to hold your wedding! Kate is such a joy to work with - easygoing, creative and totally appreciates how stressful wedding planning can be, so the policies and offerings she has crafted for engaged couples are such a refreshing thing to see in this industry! I've had the pleasure of photographing the ballroom both indoors and out, and LOVE the texture, history, charm and industrial chic vibe of the space... all steps from the river, outdoor patio and Ellicott City's Main Street (so many great photo opportunities)!!! I look forward to working together in the years to come!
