About

Up to 400 guests

Memories Ballroom is a banquet hall wedding venue located in Port Washington, Wisconsin, just 30 minutes away from the heart of Milwaukee. In the 1930s, the property was a world-class dance hall where well-known musicians of the time performed. The venue offers the charm of a rustic barn interior with modern accents, creating an inviting atmosphere for couples to host unforgettable celebrations.

Memories Ballroom features a one-of-a-kind event space for to-be-weds to share their big days with family and friends. Here, up to 400 guests can join you. The 2,500-square-foot banquet hall includes a solid maple dance floor, a tamarack log ceiling, and twin stone fireplaces. Warm lighting adorns the space, creating a warm ambience no matter the season. Together, these interior features preserve the rustic elegance that the venue has offered for the past 85 years. The hall is professionally decorated seasonally, meaning you’ll have one less thing you have to worry about during the planning process. For your ceremony or live music at your reception, you are welcome to use the space’s stage. The hall’s bar will be stocked and serviced for you and your guests to enjoy as you dine and dance. Whether you’re hosting your engagement party, shower, rehearsal dinner, or ceremony and reception, the team is happy to accommodate you.

    Excellent Wedding Venue

    This is the perfect wedding venue for a rustic wedding. The staff, food, and services are excellent. The pricing is also reasonable. I would recommend this venue to anyone.

    Memories Ballroom's reply:

    Thank you so much Chelli and Matt. We are so glad that you and your guests enjoyed the evening. Your "Non Traditional" wedding was a great change of pace for us as well. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.

    My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our experience at Memories. We really loved how they were an all in one package. We didn't have to go anywhere else for catering, a DJ, or a Ceremony venue. They also provided all decorations, so all we needed were centerpieces. We would definitely recommend their services to everyone!
