Great venue with awesome service

We had our 130 guest wedding at Woodward in August and could not have been happier! The venue was beautiful and the staff made the planning process easy. They were very responsive to questions and the day of staff were on top of every detail. They flipped the room between our ceremony and reception and tore down a few tables to expand our dance floor after dinner and we didn’t even notice them working because they were so quick! We would definitely recommend this venue!

Post Elopement Celebration at the Woodward

The Woodward Theater and MOTR Pub have always been our favorite places to hang out downtown and especially our favorite venue in the city for live music. My husband and I were eloped this past October and chose the Woodward for our post elopement celebration this February. We already knew it was going to be amazing going into it but the venue exceeded all of our already high expectations!! Dan is such an easy and accommodating guy to work with and all of the planning was so easy! We went with one of the Woodward's preferred caterers, Eli's BBQ which made the catering planning even easier. Tables and chairs were already all set up and waiting for us when we arrived the morning of. We had so much fun taking over the historic poster boxes too! The venue was incredibly accommodating as well for our more "non traditional" reception ideas. We did board games instead of dancing, cookies instead of cake, had cornhole upstairs and they even set up the projector which we hooked up a Nintendo Switch to to play Super Smash Bros! We got so many comments all night and for days after about how beautiful the venue was and how lovely all the staff members and bartenders were!! All around the absolute perfect party! This is an incredibly special venue and we highly recommend it for any large event!! Can't wait to see it with the new marquee all lit up!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception back in October (sorry this is late) and I cannot say enough good things about this venue and the staff! Dan and Wednesday were very easy to work with and available to answer questions whenever needed. They provided recommendations on other vendors, venue set-up, and design and even allowed us to come visit the venue numerous times with family and friends for planning. The staff on the day of the wedding was fantastic and everything was flipped, broken down, and cleaned up without a hitch. I continue to get compliments on the uniqueness of the venue and the beautiful space. I recommend this venue to everyone I know who is planning a wedding!
