About The Cannery Ballroom

The #1 Destination for Weddings in Nashville

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 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.

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.

We could not have been happier to have our reception at the Cannery Ballroom and definitely couldn't have done it without the help of Allison Jones and the rest of the Cannery staff. She always more than accommodating to answer our questions and help give guidance to make sure our special day was more than perfect. We had a blast and it was the perfect venue for our band to sing and dance the night away. HIGHLY recommend- Thank you!

My daughter had her reception at Cannery Ballroom in December. There were hidden costs with taking down stage to make room for 250 guests. Your guests have to pay to park or that is another expense you have to plan on. They are not flexible if you are a do-it-your-selver. They want you to use their vendors for everything. Again costs go up.

We chose ONE Cannery Row for the great feel and location! We planned our wedding from out of town and picked Cannery based on pictures (which didn't do it justice)! The space has so much charm and character and doesn't require a lot to be added to give it the wow factor.

The only negative was the team's communication. Being out of town we had to rely on e-mail and phone and I found myself having to follow-up multiple times via e-mail or phone to get a response.
