About The West End Ballroom

We converted this historic theater into a gorgeous downtown Portland event facility with two beautiful ballrooms, a large bridal suite and a gorgeous fireside foyer that is perfect for cocktail hour! The entire building is yours for the day and includes two outside patios… One looking out at Portland lights (next to our classic lit up Marquis) and a completely private internal patio built patio decked out with café lights and cozy outdoor furniture.

The West End has a fantastic state of the art lighting system which you can customize to fit your perfect design needs. We also included everything you need to make the space uniquely yours! No need to rent anything more!

We are so excited to show you around and would be honored to be part of your day!

    The West End is a beautiful venue with lots of charm. It worked out well for my daughters wedding. We liked that this venue has a space for the ceremony and a separate space for the reception. We worked with Lauren all the way through the process. She was always so helpful and professional. Great experience!

    From our initial tour of the venue through to our wedding day, Jennifer, Amber, and Lauren with West End Ballroom were nothing short of amazing. They guided my wife and I through every stage of the process, including connecting us with Susan at the Portland Clinic across the street to rent their lot for our guests, and we can't thank them enough for connecting us with our incredible caterers, Catering Beyond Borders, and Powers Photography Studios, easily the best photography studio in Portland!

    The venue itself is stunning both inside and out, and, being a former movie theatre, suited both our guest count and our Bollywood theme perfectly. We had been committed to having our ceremony outdoors, only utilizing one of West End's two ballrooms for our reception but, after the confusing, convoluted nightmare of working with Portland Parks and Recreation and their long list of nonsensical rules and regulations, we opted to have our ceremony there, as well, and Lauren and her team were happy to accommodate us at no additional cost.

    They were beyond kind, even going so far as to stay camped at the front door the whole evening to ensure no uninvited guests wandered in and helping us, our family, guests, and caterers clean up at the end of the evening. We couldn't have been happier with our experience at the West End Ballroom and thank them for hosting our wedding and making it even better than we could have imagined!

    I loved having my wedding ceremony and reception at the West End Ballroom. The staff was very responsive and attentive. Throughout the year, the venue will host Open House sessions. I brought my vendors to a few of these to take measurements, scope out the kitchen set up, etc. I didn't use one of the preferred caterers, so I had to pay an opt-out fee, which was totally fine. On the day of the wedding, the photo booth machine didn't work and the normal operator was out sick. This was a bummer, but the staff was great about refunding that portion of cost in a timely manner. What I love about this venue is that the reception ballroom requires very minimal decoration because it is so beautiful! I also love that the ceremony and reception take place in two separate rooms, which avoids catering to have to do a 'flip' during the cocktail hour. I can't recommend this venue enough!
