    Amazing Experience!

    My experience planning a birthday party at the Ballroom was exceptional! Matt and Fielding were so easy to work with and made the entire planning porcess fun! The venue is very beautiful, elegant, and well kept. What stood out to me most was how much they cared about the event and ensured everything turned out beautiful. They assisted with setup on the day of and added certain elements (i.e. lighting), and improvised along witht the decor team to ensure everything turned out elegant! I am looking forward to future events at the Ballroom and working with such a great team again!

    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.
