Ruby is a boutique event space in the Hillsboro Village. Ruby is surrounded by Dragon Park and is across the street from Vanderbilt. Ruby's is a historic structure with a contemporary, industrial vibe. Ruby is an award-winning architectural gem.

Since opening Ruby in 2011, we've hosted numerous weddings and events for most local companies, non-profits and many musicians. There are a number of things that we think make Ruby what it is:

  • History fused with contemporary design - Open wood and steel truss ceiling, dark hardwood floors, 15-foot teak entry doors, and white pearl-like plaster walls.
  • Style - Ruby is a sophisticated, high-end, gallery-like space with a timeless mid-century style.
  • Location - In the historic Hillsboro Village neighborhood. Close to everywhere in Nashville.
  • Layout - One large interior space, 3 courtyards/decks, 5 bathrooms, and dressing/green room.
  • Outdoors - Ruby is surrounded by Dragon Park and the pastoral vibe is unique to the middle of the city.
  • Lighting, Audio and Stages - Superb, customizable lighting, audio system and hi-def video projection.
  • Parking - Plenty
  • Vendors - Largely open vendor program

RATES: Evenings $3600 - 5500 (date dependent)

OUR LATEST VENUE - Clementine

Our newest venue, Clementine, is in Sylvan-Charlotte District. Clementine is a restored 1889 structure with a sophisticated, high-end design, but is markedly different from Ruby in size and style. For this reason, most couples are likely a Ruby or a Clementine couple, not both, and we try do determine which so that you may visit the right one.

If you expect up to 150 guests, you are likely a Ruby couple. 150-250, you may be either a Ruby or Clementine couple. Over 250, you are certainly a Clementine couple. However, the design of the spaces and how we use the outdoors should give you a nudge one way or the other. If you're still on the fence, call us and we'll figure it out.

    Work Party

    This facility hosted my work Christmas party and it was a blast. We were late finishing up and they helped us close up at no charge past our reserved time. It made me heavily consider them as a vendor for our wedding next summer! Perfect size for 30-60 people throughout the night. Allowed for our own hired bartender. Great decor before adding lights. Could imagine a ceremony there as well as a reception!

    The most beautiful, intimate, and unique venue!

    You can't go wrong with Ruby. It is such a wonderful and unique venue. We wanted an intimate wedding and it was everything we dreamed it would be. The staff is wonderful as well. Our wedding was a dream at Ruby!

    Ruby for the win!

    The entire team at Ruby is such a joy to work with. I could not have asked for a better wedding venue experience. They answered questions in a timely manner and with a smile. They were always readily available on the day of our wedding, and made me feel at home on the day of our wedding. Seriously the best venue, and it ain't so bad on the eyes either.

Ruby is a stunning venue (those walls!) and is the perfect backdrop for an intimate event. Brenda and Hailey are incredible communicators and super helpful in the planning pre-event. I'm eager to work at Ruby again and have no hesitation about recommending the venue to clients.
