The Powerhouse was built in 1928 as the 'Powerhouse' for the city of Oxford, Mississippi. Its vintage style brick and spacious rooms with tall ceilings provide any couple with the ingredients to create a delightful celebration. Located on University Avenue, it's the venue that adapts to the vision for your special day. The Powerhouse features two spacious rooms. For smaller events, the Gallery may be reserved for a more intimate gathering or for larger events both rooms can be connected so your guests can mingle freely from room to room.
Both the Gallery and the Theatre are 40 feet by 60 feet and both have a ceiling height of 24 feet. We are able to hang decorations from the ceiling, such as chandeliers, paper lanterns, or flower arrangements. (Decorations are not provided.) The Theatre has a 24 by 20 stage that can be used for musicians or ceremonies. It also features dedicated power for musicians.
Each room can hold around 200 people seated and 400 standing. So for seated dinners and receptions we can host about 400 and for standing receptions we can host about 800 people.
We can host both weddings and wedding receptions (as well as showers, engagement parties and more!), and we can flip rooms after your ceremony so that you can have both rooms available for the reception.

Perfectly Artsy and Industrial
The Powerhouse was such a great venue. We had both the ceremony and reception in the two separate rooms, and one of the rooms was flipped for dancing. They provide a list of vendors to make it easy for your reference (and your given budget), and they're quick to answer any questions you may have. All in all, we picked the perfect venue for our theme!Sent on 09/23/2019

I love working with the Powerhouse. Great venue for any type of event. Lots of open space where you can create any type of theme needed. The staff are simply the best. Easy to work with and willing to make changes on the go as needed. Only a few steps from the famous Oxford square.
