    Beautiful Wedding Venue!

    We have received non-stop compliments on our venue since our wedding! The Century Room included everything you possibly could need/want in a venue. In addition to being a gorgeous and conveniently located venue, we thoroughly enjoyed that it was a one-stop-shop for us, as The Century Room was our ceremony/reception space, as well as our bar/catering providers! Tabitha Wyatt was fantastic to work with over the last year- she is incredibly sweet and accommodating and has just been so helpful throughout our entire wedding planning process! She was hands-on the entire day of our wedding, in addition to checking in with us frequently leading up to the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly! We truly appreciate the entire wait staff and coordinators at The Century Room who made our wedding day better than we could have dreamed of!

    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!

  • Events for You Wedding Planners

    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.

  • Flawless Wedding Hair & Makeup

    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!
