The Court Above Main is a venue that brings a city-like vibe with a historic touch to weddings in La Crosse, Wisconsin. They are happy to host your reception, rehearsal dinner, private party, anniversary, birthday, board meeting, or corporate conference. The Court Above Main was first established over a century ago and was used as a social gathering space. Later on, the building was converted to a gym for the YWCA until it was redesigned into the event space that it is today. The beautiful structure is home to sixteen-foot ceilings and a ballroom court floor that still boasts its original hardwood. Inside, there are floor-to-ceiling windows as well as a private bridal suite that can serve as a great spot to get ready before the big event.

I think the clincher in selecting the Court as our venue was the incredible staff. They were responsive to questions, professional, and knowledgeable. They helped take care of so many of the details and were happy to be a sounding board when I brought ideas to them and asked them if they thought they would work in the space or not. Some of the best pluses were that they took care of set up and tear down, provided tables, linens, serviceware, etc. They helped make sure everything ran smoothly and that we and our families could enjoy the day and not have to worry about making sure we were on track or that things were happening as they needed to. They also scheduled all the arrival times for our vendors and made the whole thing feel seamless and smooth.Sent on 03/08/2019
