About The Cannery Ballroom
The historic Cannery Ballroom presents a truly unique and engaging atmosphere for a variety of special events, including wedding receptions, charity fundraisers, corporate parties and private events, among others. Featuring interior brick walls, exposed beam ceilings, polished hardwood flooring, and a view of the Nashville skyline, the Cannery Ballroom is rich with character and charm, making it one of the most distinctive and sought-after event venues Nashville.
The Cannery Ballroom resides in Nashville's Historic Cannery building. Built in 1883, the Cannery was originally a flour mill and later a place to grind coffee. The building earned it's name when the Dale Food company bought it in 1957 and began processing food (jams, jellies, mustard, mayonnaise, peanut butter, etc.) eventually opening a restaurant called "The Cannery" in the early 1970s. The building housed a country music theatre in the late 70s and evolved into one of Nashville's primary music venues in the 80s and early 90s. Jimmy Cliff, Janes Addicition, Iggy Pop, Lenny Kravitz, Midnight Oil, Greg Allman, Robin Trower among other touring acts of the time played the Cannery.
The Cannery Ballroom is on the ground floor and has been renovated with new hardwood floors, large tiled bathrooms and a standing room capacity of 1,000. It is open only for concerts and special events. The Cannery also boasts an impressive 66 ft tiled-bar and provides full bar service from an experienced and courteous staff. The main ballroom can accommodate up to 300 guests for a seated dinner or 500 for a cocktail reception, with additional room for seating in both the main foyer and back lounge area. Tables and seating for up to 200 guests is included with your rental.
