The most unique and beautiful venue!
Our wedding was June 22, 2019 at The Thaxton. We enjoyed every moment of our day at this venue! It's such a unique space and feels as if you're living a party straight out of the Great Gatsby! Kim was an amazing coordinator. You can tell she knows what works and what won't in the space. She made every step of the planning process simple and made sure our evening went beautifully. I can't thank her enough for her assertiveness and the way she orchestrated our evening! If you are looking for an a venue that makes your wedding planning a breeze and a memory you'll never forget this is the place!Sent on 06/28/2019

Amazing, Felt like a movie
I loved this Venue !! This is clearly a place that throws parties. It was such a cool unique space with multi-level accommodations that were perfect for the vibe we had. Many of my guest left saying, I want to throw a party here. As well as telling me I need to have another event again next year. I cannot say enough good things about this location. If you are looking for something outside the box, this is absolutely your place. I can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of my wedding reception. My host, bartenders, DJ were phenomenal! Thank you, for making my night!Sent on 09/13/2019

Memories Made at Thaxton
As a friend I was helping to put together a 25th wedding anniversary event over the weekend. One of the top priorities was to find a venue which has a character and not the stereotype ball room. The personalities of the couple was also completely different. One the old world charm and quiet and the other crazy, fun loving, full of life. So it was important to find a venue which had color, character, a bit of history, a bit artistic, not to mention convenience, great staff, accessibility and a bit of flexibility. We managed to find all these at Thaxton. The moment you enter the closed doors, you are in for a surprise. Romantic, colorful, subtle and you don't need any additional decor to add. More surprises, a beautiful mezzanine bar for a small gathering, and huge room for the bride or the groom. At the basement its a beautiful , spacious bar cum dance floor to dance your heart out. All these wrapped in this beautiful Art Deco wedding venue. Ideal for 80-100 guests with space for people to move and sit in groups. Kim who runs the place was excellent in terms of responding to mails, showing us the place more than many times without any tiredness, talking about the history of the place and most importantly guiding you through the whole event and not looking for opportunities to add more cost. Right from the first time we communicated till the event day it was a wonderful experience to get immediate response and everything arranged perfectly on the day of the event. Her team members were excited, willing to help always and making one feel part of the family. Special mention goes to Bryan, Sam at the Bar, Maddog in logistics. The place was clean, people were friendly and professional, and enough parking lots around the venue . Kim was there throughout the event and managed the whole show to perfection. It s a perfect venue and if you want to soak in a bit of history, romantic, artistic, rocking ambience you found all these in this venue. Thank you Kim and team for the wonderful memories.Sent on 07/01/2019
