After much research and visiting a ton of places, we chose the Century Room for our rehearsal dinner. We cannot express how unbelievable and perfect our night was. The planning process with Chandler was beyond easy and enjoyable. She helped me with every aspect, even things that had nothing to do with her or the venue. She would respond to every single question or request immediately and we were beyond impressed by her and her work! We love her! =)Sent on 05/08/2016
The day of the event was even more impressive (if that's possible). The FOOD!!! Our guests are still talking about the food!!! Most guests were from Miami or big cities, aka spoiled by top cuisine and restaurants....all were shocked by the food. The atmosphere blew everyone away. If you haven't seen pictures or visited the event space, please do! You will love it and not look any further for your event! The service and staff were simply amazing. Unfortunately, we live in Miami, FL. If not, I would be set with a venue for every occasion in life. Chandler can turn the Century Room into an elegant wedding or strip it down and help you throw a casual BBQ party. It has been a couple months and we still talk about Chandler and the Century Room. Please call her and get to know her...it won't take more than the first conversation to be at ease and know that you're in the BEST hands at the greatest event space. My email is Nikkis0902@gmail.com if you'd like more information. I'd love to tell you even more about the Century Room!

Seamless & Sincere!
You need to see this one in person, and talk with the event coordinator, Lizzy! As soon as we did, we knew this was the place for us. With some of the most reasonable pricing around for food & alcohol (we did plated meal & beer/wine only), plus a GORGEOUS all inclusive space downtown that's perfect for ceremony, cocktail hour & reception- you really can't go wrong. We got so many compliments from our guests on the food, local beer, and historic beauty of the space. We had a large number of vegans that were accommodated nicely, and we took advantage of the upstairs apartment for getting ready as well. Our photos with the brick & lots of natural light have turned out just beautiful. Since we were planning from afar for our wedding back in my hometown, communication with the venue was incredibly important. Lizzy was quick to respond to emailed questions, worked with us within our budget, and most importantly-we felt such a great connection with the staff that we were truly able to trust them with the execution of our day & had a relaxing, loving ceremony & reception. We can't thank you enough Lizzy & Tabitha, and highly recommend you book the Century Room!Sent on 06/23/2019

This venue was so perfect for what we imagined for our wedding. It was the perfect size for our 90 person wedding and still had more than enough space for a band, photo booth, and food stations. Every one of our guests commented on how great the space looked AND how great the food was. We weren't able to do a food tasting prior to the wedding, but it made no difference, every single thing we had was delicious - from the passed apps, to the pasta station, to the carving station - not a single thing disappointed. Also, Lizzy was so incredible to work with! She responded so quickly and helped with any and all of our requests to make our day go smoothly. We were so appreciative to the staff who stayed and made our day so wonderful even with an impending snow storm. Every waiter/bartender/employee was beyond nice and we are so thankful for everyone! Can't say enough good things about the Century Room!!Sent on 12/26/2018
The Century Room is an excellent place in the heart of downtown Asheville for events - whether a rehearsal dinner and welcome party, or wedding and reception. The food is excellent. The staff are professional and experienced. So much is included that all a client really needs are some flowers and accessories to dress it up. The best part about this place is the option for guests to adjourn downstairs after the event and enjoy Pack's Tavern, or to take a short walk and enjoy everything Asheville has to offer.
The Century Room is such a lovely space for your special event with the open floor plan it is very spacious and the view of the downtown is beautiful! Often we will provide hair and makeup services at a local Hotel or Airbnb if the bride is using this space for her ceremony or reception!
