We had the pleasure of working with Sarah from the Old Metropolitan Hall when planning our wedding. She did a wonderful job with coordinating with our vendors and ensuring that our day was truly memorable. She responded to our inquiries in a timely manner and was professional throughout the entire process. Sarah is easy to work with and has a great eye for design.Sent on 03/30/2020
The Old Metropolitan Hall packs a ton of character with high ceilings, beautifully exposed brick walls, and gives off a minimalist vibe! We had 48 guests attend our wedding, which fit perfectly in the space. There was enough space for our guests to dance on the downstairs dancefloor and did not feel too empty, however the space could accommodate amble number of guests. We would recommend the Old Met to any couple who is planning to have a more intimate wedding in a downtown setting.
Old Metropolitan Hall's reply:SO very kind!! Thank yall so much for this sweet note :) We loved hosting your big day. Congratulations to you and Alex!!!!!!

Perfectly located, BEAUTIFUL event space
We were looking for an open, bright, modern-looking space in the heart of Charlottesville for my rehearsal dinner. Old Metropolitan Hall (OMH) delivered in a BIG way. The space is beautiful - high ceilings, mirrored walls, lights, and a lower level that has a speakeasy feel. I was going for a "modern glam" feel for my rehearsal dinner and OMH was the perfect space. It's located right on the Downtown Mall, so it's easy to get to (lots of street parking and garages available), and the location means guests have easy access to other restaurants/bars after the event is over. Sarah was SO easy to work with, super nice and very understanding of our needs; and the price was very reasonable. You rent out the whole space for like 8 hours, so it was a great deal. I will recommend OMH to anyone looking for an event space in Charlottesville!Sent on 09/13/2019
