    The Showcase Room was the first venue we looked at on a day full of appointments and it is the venue we ended up booking - and we could not be happier!! First of all, the space itself has so much character and looks great with little to no added decor, while still being a blank slate for whatever "vibe" you want to create for your event. It was great working with Kelley to plan the event including a custom menu and the layout of the room and flow of the evening. The staff was EXCELLENT the night of the wedding, the food was impeccable, and I would definitely recommend the space for any event. Kelley is very easy to work with every step of the way - she made anything seem possible, and had great suggestions and ideas from her experience with other events in the past. She is a wealth of knowledge and made us feel very comfortable during the planning process. Our event was spectacular, and having the venue, caterer, and built-in decor of the Showcase Room was a no-brainer. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    We used The Showcase Room as the reception site for our daytime brunch wedding. It was reasonably priced and easy to customize and make it our own. The staff was wonderful and accommodating.

    The Showcase Room's reply:

    Thank you so much, Marissa! We loved meeting you and your family and are so glad you spent your special day with us!

If you haven't seen this place you must! The Showcase Room is a show-stopper. A very hip style that stands the test of time and will look good as your backdrop. The food selections are great, plus a chef who likes to customize. Parking, patio, built in bar - you can not go wrong!!
