Built in 1898 by the bohemian immigrant Wenceslaus S. Broz, the venue was designed by famous architect Cass Gilbert, who is well known for designing the Minnesota state capitol building. Its first role was a hotel, featuring 17 guest rooms, a dining room, a billiard hall, and the latest modern conveniences of the period, including hot and cold running water, bath and toilet facilities, steam heating, and gas lightings. It was considered to be among the finest hotel in the state. The building is most recently known as Schumacher’s, which operated from 1974 until 2005. It was often a destination for those looking to enjoy a four-star European dining experience. Since 2005, the facility has changed owners several times, all being passionately focused on restoring the hotel to its original beauty.

Best Day Ever
The Broz is an absolutely breathtaking venue in downtown New Prague. Jackie, the venue coordinator, went out of her way to make sure that everything ran smoothly.
We would also recommend the fajita bar through this little piggy catering. We got so many compliments about the food, and the space.Sent on 11/10/2019

This was the first and last venue that we looked at. From the moment we finished the tour we knew that this was the place we wanted to be married. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and only got more gorgeous from our first tour. Jackie was absolutely wonderful to work with and answered any questions that we had very quickly. She also reached out to me to ask how planning was going which honestly kept me on track. If this is the style you’re looking for I would 100% day go for it!Sent on 01/05/2020

I think choosing weddings at the broz was one of the best decisions we made! This is a historic building and a lot of our guests when we told them where it is were very excited to see how they restored it. All the spaces are so beautiful and our guests continue to rave about how perfect and beautiful it was. We really enjoyed having seating available and during the dance for folks who aren’t interested in dancing so they can sit and chat. Jackie was so responsive and wonderful to work with. I can’t have imagined a better location for our wedding.Sent on 11/23/2019
