Highly recommend for a special event in Asheville!
We had such a wonderful experience with Jessie and Tabitha as coordinators and event planners at The Century Room. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and would have been perfect the modern-meets-rustic vibe we were after. The brick and lighting is simply magic.Sent on 09/28/2020
Their drink selection and ability to order anything was such a perk, and the food was very good as we were able to dine in their restaurant and sample cross-over items for their event menu.
Unfortunately we had to cancel our wedding due to COVID, but the proactive communication, fairness, and care with how we were treated by Tabitha and Jessie during the entire ordeal is what prompts me to write this review. I am sad we were unable to carry through with our vision as I am sure it would have been a smashing success, and I have not doubt they will be wonderful partners to other newlyweds-to-be able to execute their weddings in Asheville. I would highly recommend this beautiful, budget-friendly venue to anyone and you will not go wrong working with Jessie and Tabitha!

Beautiful Wedding Venue!
We have received non-stop compliments on our venue since our wedding! The Century Room included everything you possibly could need/want in a venue. In addition to being a gorgeous and conveniently located venue, we thoroughly enjoyed that it was a one-stop-shop for us, as The Century Room was our ceremony/reception space, as well as our bar/catering providers! Tabitha Wyatt was fantastic to work with over the last year- she is incredibly sweet and accommodating and has just been so helpful throughout our entire wedding planning process! She was hands-on the entire day of our wedding, in addition to checking in with us frequently leading up to the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly! We truly appreciate the entire wait staff and coordinators at The Century Room who made our wedding day better than we could have dreamed of!Sent on 03/05/2020

Seamless & Sincere!
You need to see this one in person, and talk with the event coordinator, Lizzy! As soon as we did, we knew this was the place for us. With some of the most reasonable pricing around for food & alcohol (we did plated meal & beer/wine only), plus a GORGEOUS all inclusive space downtown that's perfect for ceremony, cocktail hour & reception- you really can't go wrong. We got so many compliments from our guests on the food, local beer, and historic beauty of the space. We had a large number of vegans that were accommodated nicely, and we took advantage of the upstairs apartment for getting ready as well. Our photos with the brick & lots of natural light have turned out just beautiful. Since we were planning from afar for our wedding back in my hometown, communication with the venue was incredibly important. Lizzy was quick to respond to emailed questions, worked with us within our budget, and most importantly-we felt such a great connection with the staff that we were truly able to trust them with the execution of our day & had a relaxing, loving ceremony & reception. We can't thank you enough Lizzy & Tabitha, and highly recommend you book the Century Room!Sent on 06/23/2019

We had our rehearsal dinner here and they did a fantastic job. Our first rehearsal dinner location fell through within 3 months of our wedding and were lucky Pack’s still had an opening for us. Their food was delicious and they had a good selection of beer and wine. We had our dinner out on the patio and our guests really enjoyed the space, including the back area where we played games!Sent on 11/22/2019

This venue was so perfect for what we imagined for our wedding. It was the perfect size for our 90 person wedding and still had more than enough space for a band, photo booth, and food stations. Every one of our guests commented on how great the space looked AND how great the food was. We weren't able to do a food tasting prior to the wedding, but it made no difference, every single thing we had was delicious - from the passed apps, to the pasta station, to the carving station - not a single thing disappointed. Also, Lizzy was so incredible to work with! She responded so quickly and helped with any and all of our requests to make our day go smoothly. We were so appreciative to the staff who stayed and made our day so wonderful even with an impending snow storm. Every waiter/bartender/employee was beyond nice and we are so thankful for everyone! Can't say enough good things about the Century Room!!Sent on 12/26/2018

The atmosphere of this venue was perfect for us! The exposed brick and lighting of the Century room was so beautiful that you don't need to go crazy with decorations. Also the food was AMAZING!! I don't know how many compliments we got about the food, but everyone (even the vegetarians liked it). The location right downtown is perfect so you can wander to other bars after the wedding and it's close to hotels. Lizzy was very responsive and helpful throughout the planning. I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone getting married!Sent on 11/11/2018
Amy · Married on 09/02/2018
We are so grateful to have chosen the Century Room for our wedding reception! The event space is gorgeous, the service was fantastic, and the value was excellent compared to the many other venues I checked out in the Asheville area. Julie and Lizzy were so professional and prompt in answering our (numerous!!!) questions and helping us plan so many details of our reception. Having them on my team made me feel so at ease, even though I was planning my destination wedding from Florida. Lizzy and Tabitha did a fantastic job in executing the event, and our reception turned out to be more beautiful than I had imagined! The food was fantastic and they happily accommodated our vegan guest's food preferences. Our guests were so impressed with you all (and so were we!), and we cannot thank you enough for helping make our wedding day magical.Sent on 09/30/2018

Our wedding at the Century Room was everything we dreamed it would be! Everyone we worked with there was so kind, friendly, professional, and responsive. We had our ceremony and reception there, and the space was so beautiful. Our reception dinner was EXCELLENT! All our guests were raving about the food. My grandmother has some pretty serious food allergies, and they went above and beyond to accommodate her to make sure she had a delicious dinner as well. I can't even begin to describe how much that meant to me and my family! You can't beat the awesome location either - it made for some amazing pictures and memories that we will always treasure!Sent on 09/08/2018

We were absolutely blown away by The Century Room! When we started the long process of planning our wedding out of state, to say we were overwhelmed was an understatement. We were so lucky to be recommended to The Century Room. As soon as I walked in the room captured the exact feeling I was going for. Not only was the location perfect, the room was enchanting and beautiful. The price was by far the most reasonable and the staff alone made this experience easy, fun, and truly magical. Our Wedding day went off without a hitch! The food was delicious! We are still getting compliments on how awesome the macaroni and cheese bar was! It was more beautiful then we even imagined. Thank you Julie and Lizzy with all of our hearts and to all the staff that helped make our experience seriously perfect! We would recommend this venue over and over again! I wish everyone who gets married got to have the same phenomenal experience that we had with The Century Room.Sent on 06/26/2018

Had rehearsal dinner at the Century Room. Lizzie is now my adopted daughter! She went well beyond her duty. The staff was wonderful, food and servers were fabulous! I don’t want my son to get married again, but I would have a party there again in a minute! Thanks Lizzie!!!!Sent on 11/04/2017
Michelle · Married on 10/14/2017
I cannot say enough good things about The Century Room! Lizzy and Julie were so responsive every time I emailed them with a question or change (even the morning of the wedding) and were so on top of everything. All the information we went over in meetings was very straightforward and easy to understand. It was also really great to have a venue that already handles the tables, chairs, dinnerware, servers, bartenders, etc. rather than having to piecemeal all of that or worry about having it all delivered from another company. When my coordinator showed up, all of the tables and place setting were finished so she just needed to place flowers and decor- super simple!Sent on 10/25/2017
We were also incredibly excited about the menu we chose (family style) and our guests raved about the food! We did a tasting to make sure we liked everything we were considering and we ended up only changing out one of the hoer d'oeuvres we tried. Everything else was top notch and the hoer d'oeuvres we did go with were really tasty. For dessert we had brownies that were included with our menu choice instead of any type of cake or cupcakes and it was such a good decision. Easier to have them handle it in house and so delicious.
10/10 would definitely host another event here!
Brenda · Married on 08/18/2017
We chose The Century Room to host our son's rehearsal dinner, and could not have been any happier. The staff was always very quick to respond to all of my questions....and I had many! They were professional, polite and so accommodating, making me fell completely confident that they were on top of everything! The night of the event, they were so helpful, and very attentive to my needs or wishes. The food was amazing, all of our guests enjoyed it. The service was quick and the room was beautiful! I highly recommend The Century Room for your next event! Thank you Lizzy, Chandler, and Julie!Sent on 08/23/2017
Stephanie · Married on 06/18/2017
I cannot say enough great things about Chandler and her team at the Century Room! They were such a breeze to work with and truly went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our special day. We planned a destination wedding from South Florida and it was never an issue with the Century Room. The event space was beautiful and the food was great. Everyone is still talking about how much they loved the venue. Their staff work with you in every aspect of your event and are very responsive to emails, phone calls, and anything you need for you big day. We had multiple changes arise the week of the wedding and the staff could not have been more accommodating. We are so grateful to have had our wedding reception at The Century Room!Sent on 07/01/2017
The Century Room's reply:Thank you for your kind words, Stephanie! It was such a pleasure to work with you and have your friends and family with us for your celebration! Please come visit whenever you find yourself in Asheville!

Our 6/2/17 Rehearsal Dinner/Welcoming Party in the Century Room for Brent and Amanda could not have been more perfect! Chandler was great to work with on this special event. She gave great advice and took care of every need and request we had to make our evening come together. She and her staff could not have been more professional and endearing. We truly had a magical evening! Thank You!Sent on 06/15/2017

Book It! We had our wedding rehearsal dinner for 54 people here and it was fabulous. Chandler Guess and her staff were outstanding - more than helpful regarding table settings, food and beverage suggestions, set-up etc. Everything was first class.Sent on 05/30/2017
Kitty · Married on 05/27/2017
I cannot say enough "good things" about the entire experience at The Century Room! From the initial booking through the final ceremony and reception Chandler and Lizzie were true professionals and responded to our every need and wish as well. The venue was absolutely beautiful, the dinner for 130 was superb, the staff so flexible and accommodating and everything went like clockwork - even down to the sparkler exit. We were very worried at the last minute when we realized that the Asheville Beer Fest would be going on right outside the restaurant door but there was still ample parking nearby and all was well. Best value for the money of any venue we looked at and we looked at many. Also, we had the ceremony there and it provided an intimate experience for the bride and groom and the guests and the staff quickly transformed that area of the room into dining and dancing. Kudos to all the staff and especially Chandler and her asst. Lizzie.Sent on 06/04/2017

Chandler and Lizzy made the best team. Everything about their business acumen is first class. Promptness, professionalism, courtesy, accuracy, Edwin the chef is spectacular, so they deserve the utmost attention when considering a dinner for any occasion.Sent on 05/02/2017
Richard · Married on 03/25/2017
Couples who are thinking about using Pack's Tavern's Century Room for their rehearsal dinner do not have anything to worry about as far as ease of booking, quality of food, execution of event, timeliness of staff and preparation and plans. Chandler is super organized. Everything you need to know upfront is in writing. All you need to bring to the equation is number of guest and the personal touches that you need to make it your own. These professionals know how to create a memory. I am so glad we went with them. It was more than we could have imagined.Sent on 03/28/2017
Kristina · Married on 01/06/2017
My husband and I actually had booked another venue previous to finding this place! When we moved our wedding to the winter we fell in love with this venue!!! Lizzie was extremely helpful and she was always there anytime we had a question!! I also wanted a hot chocolate bar at the wedding and they made it happen!! We are so thankful that we ended up at this venue and we couldn't picture our wedding day anywhere else!Sent on 02/01/2017

We hosted the Rehearsal Dinner and Welcome Party for our son and daughter-in-law at the Century Room, and are grateful for a wonderful experience. The Century Room is gorgeous, offers loads of options, but doesn't require much because it shines on its own. Chandler was a delight to work with - warm, welcoming and extremely professional. She was helpful throughout the planning phase, always responsive and ready with good suggestions, but never imposing. She kept all parties informed and managed every detail. Lizzie assisted on the day of the event, and was invaluable with her careful coordination. The food was superb, perfectly prepared and beautifully served. We had guests who were still commenting on the food at the end of the wedding weekend. Thanks to Chandler, Lizzie, Chef and staff we had a beautiful, seamless and memorable event to kick off the wedding celebration. STELLAR on all levels.Sent on 10/18/2016
Tabitha · Married on 09/10/2016
We had our reception here and it was amazing! The staff was super friendly and professional. Working with Chandler was a dream! She answered all our questions and worked with us on some complicated aspects to our reception with no problems at all. She met with us on several occasions and helped us stay on budget. The food was some of the best food I've ever had at a wedding reception. All of our guests raved about the Mac' N 'Cheese...amongst the rest of it of course! You don't need much for decorations as the space itself is unique and beautiful. We had more than enough space to move around with about 120 guests, including vendors. The location is terrific, in the heart of downtown Asheville, and very easy to get to. As far as the price, it was one of the more affordable options in Asheville, but you would never guess that given the high quality of everything. It was a amazing experience from beginning to end and I would recommend The Century Room to anyone to celebrate your big day! Oh and Pack's Tavern, which is downstairs, is an awesome place to grab food and drinks too!Sent on 09/21/2016
Ken · Married on 08/27/2016
The Century Room at Pack's Tavern is a MUST, as in our case, for a wedding rehearsal dinner! From the start, Chandler was very informative, responsive, timely, and very detailed. The entire planning process was seamless, and most of all, calming. The room was beautiful, quality of food superb, the staff outstanding, making the entire event very memorable! The Century Room exceeded our expectations in every way possible. I would highly recommend them, without reservation, thus my 5-Star rating which is well deserved! We did our homework, visited other venues, and are very pleased we chose The Century Room.Sent on 09/01/2016

Great space, great location! We are so excited to have our reception at The Century Room! Just a heads up, we booked 1.5 early, and there were others that had book out even further than we did!Sent on 12/02/2015
Chandler has been great and answering our endless questions- she's great! I would 100% recommend this location to anyone.
One thing to keep in mind is space- 175 would be tight. A guest list that would max out at 150 would be more comfortable given the size of the room.
The Century Room's reply:We're excited to have you with us and look forward to the planning process!
Ashlee · Married on 06/04/2016
We had an amazing experience working with Chandler and The Century Room! People are still talking about the amazing food! We did family style serving and it worked out really well. The venue was perfect for 130 guests and the twinkle lights added so much to the ambiance. At the end of the night, no one wanted to leave :) We wish we could do our perfect day all over again!Sent on 07/25/2016
The Century Room's reply:Ashlee, Thank you so much for your kind words! We loved having you with us and appreciate the opportunity to be a part of your special day!
