The West End Ballroom is an incredibly inviting and flexible space!
We converted this historic theater into a gorgeous downtown Portland event facility with two beautiful ballrooms, large bridal suite, gorgeous foyer/cocktail hour areas overlooking downtown Portland. 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.
Originally a historic theater and playhouse the West End's Grand Ballroom is decked out with thousands of dollars of lighting technology. Imagine a classic Portland ballroom with high ceilings, large windows and wood floors losing with lighting options that can be incredibly customized. The lighting alone in this space would cost thousands of dollars to rent and of course it comes included. We will even create monogram gobo for your special day so you can splash the walls/floors with your personal touch.
We include chairs for both ballrooms (chivari in the Grand Ballroom), high-quality audio equipment for your or your DJs use, a password-protected web cam so guess that can't attend can watch your wedding and reception virtually!, and a long list of additional benefits.
We have an incredible list of highly trained recommended vendors including many caterers. You also have the option of bringing in your own caterer. You can also bring in your own beer and wine or utilize our recommended caterers for all food and beverage service. Again, our main goal is to be highly flexible and designed specifically around weddings and events and your needs.
Our company has been involved in the wedding industry for more than 20 years and we poured our heart and soul into The West End Ballroom. We understand the joys and fears of planning a wedding and are here to make the process fun, rewarding and as stress-free as possible for you and your family.
The next step in falling in love with this property is to experience it for yourself. We can take you on a personal physical site tour or schedule a virtual tour using or screen share tool. Either way expanding the property is the next step. Please contact us with any questions as we'd love to learn more about your wedding plans.

The West End Ballroom was the perfect venue for our mid size (115 guests) reception. The lower ballroom was the perfect intimate setting for our ceremony. Minimal decoration was needed to make it look elegant and romantic. The upper ballroom was such a great spot for having dinner and dancing, with the foyer upstairs being the perfect spot for guests to socialize before the reception or during dancing.
We are so happy we picked The West End Ballroom. Having an indoor venue with this much space and customization is great to have when getting married in Portland!

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!
Great staff, great service, great venue!

I love the West End Ballroom! One of Portland's best venues!
