About The Wilder Room

Restored to it's original charm, The Wilder Room is a true hidden gem in the heart of the East End Entertainment District of Rochester. The spacious 2,660 square foot ballroom boasts an incredibly rare barrel vaulted ceiling and 4 grandiose crystal chandeliers hung in 1905 when the ballroom was a part of the City Club, a gathering spot for politicians and businessmen at the turn of the century.

We are thrilled to share this piece of history with the community.

There is no substitute for a high level of service; it is vital to your planning experience and we don't take the task lightly. With almost 20 years of experience in hospitality including event planning, event design, logistics and food service management, we know how to work hard and get things done. We love our local community, we love to support other small businesses and we love to make our clients happy.

    Beautiful Venue and Helpful Staff!

    The Wilder Room is absolutely gorgeous. It is a perfect location downtown, with a parking garage right next to it. We liked the location being in the heart of the city.
    Bri and her staff were incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. Especially with COVID I had to make lots of changes and was very stressed. But Bri was able to give me advice and made me confident that nothing would go wrong.
    Our wedding was beautiful and everything went swimmingly. I’m so happy we chose The Wilder Room.

    Absolutely amazing!

    I was repeatedly complimented on how relaxed I was my wedding day and I believe that is a true testament to how amazing The Wilder Room and it’s staff are. From the beginning we fell in love with the beautiful space and were so excited to work with Bri and Grace. Throughout the entire planning process they were with us every step of the way and supported our plans as they had to continually change. Everyone was flexible and creative and thought of every last detail. They are clearly experts who let you decide what you want but still offer suggestions when you ask. The entire day was absolutely gorgeous from start to finish! (& their newly renovated bridal suite is amazing!!)

    2020 has been challenging, but I can honestly say if my wedding was this beautiful now, I can only imagine how wonderful it would be any other time. We were so impressed we booked it again for next year in hopes of having a big reception.

    We absolutely loved the Wilder Room and definitely recommend it!!

    An amazing venue

    My now husband and I had our wedding reception at the wilder room. We are those people who pushed through with a covid wedding and had the best experience! Bri and her team were very flexible about everything. They helped to set up and take down the decorations. Bri was super helpful and knowledgeable. She was there the entire time and made sure our wedding day was amazing. We did everything by the book (the state orders at the time) which was a little defeating at first, but everything was perfect! We would totally recommend the wilder room!
