Incredible Experience with The Ballroom!
There are not enough words to describe how pleasant, efficient and proactive our experience was with the Ballroom. Working with Matt and Fielding was a complete pleasure and they set our minds at ease on any potential issues or concerns, They provided guidance, vendors, support during the event... literally from start to finish they were a HOME RUN! You can't go wrong working with this incredible team!

Great venue and staff!!!
I can’t say enough about the venue itself, as well as Matt and Fielding. They are a pleasure to work with and bent over backwards to accommodate our very large party last weekend. The property itself was immaculate. The linen, draping, lighting and gorgeous gold chivari chairs were an additional bonus. We can wait to bring our banquet back next year. Thanks a million for a evening to remember!!!

Magical Bat Mitzvah in the Ballroom
We fell in love with the place when we attended an event at this venue, and we decided to hold our daughter's Bat Mitzvah here. I loved the space because it was beautiful, but also a blank canvas. There were endless possibilities with how to use the space - we used it in a completely different way than our friends had, and it felt like a very personalized and special space when we were done. Matt and Fielding were both so delightful to work with. I found them both so kind, friendly, enthusiastic, and full of helpful ideas. We brought in most of what we needed, but the Ballroom actually has all sorts of interesting big and small decorative pieces that can be rented as well, so it might be worthwhile to ask to take a look at them when you tour the place in case you find some sort of treasure you might like to use. The uplighting was included and we gave them our color palate - they did the rest to light up the room, and it looked great. I was also thrilled to discover they had a "fairy tale wall" which just turned on with the flip of a switch (or a plug?). It was a large curtain with string lights embedded in, so we used that as a backdrop for a number of our formal photos (as did many of our guests who loved the backdrop as well). The ballroom also has a number of other really beautiful spots for photos - in the ballroom against an ornate mirrored background and a back room with dark wood and velvety furniture that looked really elegant in the portraits we did in there. Another huge bonus was that we were able to drop off a ton of our decorations etc the day before, and store it in a quiet safe spot. An enormous convenience and one less thing to stress about the day of. I also really appreciated that Matt was there both before and all during our party - staying unobtrusively in the background but floating about to ensure that all aspects (lighting, sound, playing of our montage, etc) went smoothly. So many people who attended commented on what a beautiful space it was, as well as a convenient location.... and they didn't even know it existed before they came to our party! I would definitely hold an event here again, and I recommend it highly.

This is one of Bethesda’s best kept secret venues. As a videographer I have worked this venue many times – for weddings, Bat/Bat Mitzvahs, even a Quinceañera. I love the big free parking lot just adjacent to the building and I have to tell you – once it was snowing and unbelievably, the management kept the lot clear for the guests – much appreciated! Over time, I have gotten to know the owner, Matt Simpson and found him always cordial and ready to help with any request. Just a block from River Road, when you arrive at The Ballroom, there is a foyer area very suitable for a cocktail hour, then one heads into a large ballroom. It’s a space – there is some décor but most clients bring in some up-lighting and other accents, perhaps some trendy furniture and once the space is all set – with all the tables, center pieces and all the decorating – it can be stunning. I enjoy working there especially because it is only minutes from my house. I always go home happy and my client’s enjoy the keepsake videos I make for them. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone needing a fair amount of space and the flexibility to design the event to suit their taste. I hope to work there again sometime soon.
