About The Hobson

The Hobson is the premiere wedding and event space in the heart of Downtown Kokomo, Indiana. Our historical building with modern and contemporary elegance is the perfect setting to host an intimate and unforgettable experience. The Hobson is housed in the former City Building in downtown Kokomo. The Richardsonian Romanesque style building was built in 1893, and has undergone an intricate, stunning renovation. The third floor now houses the breathtaking two-story ballroom, holding up to 175 guests. The handsomely-constructed bar connects the ballroom to the lounge area, adorned with vintage-inspired William Morris wallpaper and bold brass fixtures. Day-of coordination services are offered with every package to ensure you are a guest at your own event. The staff at The Hobson works with you one on one prior to the event to coordinate all of your details and execute the day seamlessly while you relax and enjoy.

    The Hobson made our wedding day the best day of our lives!

    We had our wedding, cocktail hour & reception at The Hobson on July 25th, 2020. The entire year leading up to the wedding, they were hands in & amazing with communication & making sure all of our needs were met. The pandemic hit & they easily made a date change for us, making sure we were able to still have all of our needs & wants met. The day of was so perfect, no hiccups & overall the best day ever!! The staff went above & beyond to make sure all of our needs were met the entire day. Absolutely everything went smooth & there was no stress at all! I could not recommend The Hobson & their staff enough to anyone looking for a unique & sophisticated wedding space!
