The History
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.

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 Perfect Wedding Venue!

    ONE Historic was absolutely amazing! Penny (the venue manager) was so fantastic to work with for the year of planning my fiancé and I did. We originally were going to have our wedding reception there but due to COVID concerns, we unfortunately weren't able to move forward but Penny came to our rescue and allowed us to host our smaller rehearsal dinner/welcome drinks there instead. The space is stunning and you can really make it your own. The staff is amazing to work with and will go above and beyond for you! I highly recommend planning your wedding and/or event there!

    Location and service!

    Penny was the best venue manager and wedding coordinator, and the rest of the staff that we worked with was so helpful. The location is AWESOME to have everyone downtown. The two spaces allowed us to have an awesome flip so that we could do it all in one location - it was important to us to not have to shuttle people anywhere between the ceremony and reception. And, the bartenders let us have a 1-on-1 session to review the cocktail recipes I provided, and then went the extra mile to give me a cocktail book as a surprise on my wedding day. They just GET it!
