    Hired for wedding venue

    We had our wedding at the Historic Maxwell Room. Libby worked us throughout the process. Libby was awesome & ensured that everything went smoothly. We also had our rehearsal dinner at the Downtowner which Libby assisted in coordinating for us. The food & service was wonderful.

    The Venue of Your Dreams

    We got married in February 2019, and I cannot tell you how wonderful of an experience it was to work with the Historic Maxwell Room. Libby first off is super down to earth and so accommodating. Our wedding started as a courthouse idea and went all the way to a full fledged wedding. So we had a few changes here and there through out the 5 months of planning, and it was never a problem for Libby and her team. The price is right and totally available on the website. No need for the pesky contact inquiries, you can find it right there in front of you. And for what you get, the food is phenomenal, the drinks are plentiful, and it made for an incredible night. Service is top notch! And the actual appearance of the place is so unique especially in South Florida. You won't find another place like it ladies. Please look no further! It's an incredible place, and Libby and her team are WOW WOW WOW! We used a lot of Maxwell's recommended vendors, and it was like working with a family of people who don't know you but want you to have an amazing day. Thank you so much!

    All inclusive venue

    We had our wedding reception here and it was the perfect location. The inside is warm and inviting. The courtyard is a beautiful location for a photo shoot. Very little decorating required. The staff and food were great and attentive to our guest. Libby is the absolute BEST! Professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful. She was a joy to work with.

    Hidden gem of a wedding venue! Look no further!

    The Historic Maxwell Room is a hidden gem of a wedding venue in Fort Lauderdale!!! I don’t think it will be kept a secret for very long! My husband and I had our wedding at the Maxwell Room in June of 2018 for our 60 guests. It was the one and only wedding venue we looked at and from the moment Libby, the Event Coordinator at the Maxwell Room, gave us a tour, we knew it was the perfect wedding venue for us. Logistically, my husband and I really liked that we could hold our wedding ceremony and the reception on site, including having the reception catered by the Maxwell Room – we wanted to move right to the cocktail hour and reception after the ceremony without any of our guests having to travel in between. The price for our reception and cocktail hour was right on point and we felt the cost was very fair for what was included in our package. The space itself is intimate, charming and versatile to any bride’s vision of décor for her wedding. Our guests were raving about the venue. The ceremony space turned into the dance floor later on in the evening and the beautiful bar is adjacent to the dance floor so guests could mingle and chat without feeling far away from the action. The courtyard outside the Maxwell Room served as a lovely space for our cocktail hour and for guests to get some air from dancing. Our dinner was delicious and the service impeccable. I cannot recommend this wedding venue enough! Working with Libby, their Event Coordinator, was seamless and completely stress-free - she was professional, offered useful advice and always replied to my questions in a timely manner. She made me feel at ease throughout the entire planning process and made my vision come to life. I’m so grateful to her and the staff at the venue for creating the perfect wedding day for us and for hosting our family and friends.

    Libby was our contact person- She was very knowledgeable, kind and responsive. The venue is beautiful, we had both the ceremony and reception at the same location. Every staff member was on point and knew exactly what to do. Many of my guests made it a point to tell me how much they enjoyed the venue and staff.

    CALLING ALL BRIDES!!!
    HISTORIC MAXWELL ROOM - THE MOST PERFECT VENUE IN ALL OF FORT LAUDERDALE!
    As a wedding planner/mother of the bride, it was a challenge to find a venue that provided a cool, offbeat vibe, 5-star service and fabulous food. I found it at the Maxwell Room. Last weekend, our families and closest friends celebrated our daughter's wedding in the most perfect space.
    The Cuban food, creatively prepared by Chef Lou was superb and plentiful, the service by Libby and her team was impeccable. The space was intimate, warm, inviting and comfortable. It felt like a mix of vintage Havana, New Orleans and funky Brooklyn. Imagine that, a first-class venue with delicious food, white-glove service and a funky fabulous space to celebrate in, while still being affordable!
    The experience exceeded my expectation on every level.
    Hats off to an amazing team and a spectacular venue!
    If I could, I would give it 10-STARS!

    I cannot say enough about how much we loved the Historic Maxwell Room. This was the first and only venue we looked at, and was definitely a great choice! Libby was fantastic to work with. She helped us with everything from vendor recommendations (which were spot-on) to having extra items such as an aisle runner and candle holders. The venue includes food, alcohol, tables/chairs, linens, servers, ceremony set-up, etc, which made my life so much easier - and it was so affordable considering how much you got. Many of our guests commented on how much they liked the venue and the food. The food was delicious, especially the cocktail hour appetizers. This is such a unique venue with a great staff - highly recommend!

    If we could give more stars to Libby and the Maxwell Room we would. The venue and Libby made our wedding the most memorable day of our lives. She was more than accommodating to all of our needs, ideas, and multiple requests to visit the place since we booked the venue. The overall look of the place makes it possible to keep the decorations to a minimum as it has so much charm. Libby's calm attitude and extensive experience came in handy as our wedding took place in the middle of flood warnings, tornado warnings, and torrential down pours. The 'Plan B' for a rainy day should not even be called a plan B as its just as beautiful and amazing as our plan A, the courtyard option. Lot of our guests commented on how glad they were that we hosted our ceremony inside instead of the courtyard as it created a more intimate setting. We opted for the heavy appetizers throughout the happy hour and reception and everyone loved the quality of the food and the uniqueness of it.

    We loved the Maxwell room and would recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone wanting to have an unique experience.

    We were so lucky to have been able to have our reception at the Maxwell Room. Libby is an amazing person to work with. She was quick to respond and even helped us determine how we wanted to decorate the venue when we were toying with different ideas. The staff was incredible as well the day of. Very pleasant and quick service. Our guests absolutely enjoyed themselves. And the exposed brick, long bar, and ambience of the venue was perfect for our wedding! Thank you Libby for making our vision of a great day come true!

    We feel in love with the The Historic Maxwell room as soon as we stepped in. Libby, the event coordinator was so accommodating with all of our requests and very helpful as well. When it finally came to the day off, the staff was on point and gave all of our guest amazing service. The food was delicious. So many of our guests couldn't get enough of the steak! This location was so perfect and I highly recommend this venue for any size wedding. We had 100 guests and there was still room to party, dance and room around and still get that romantic intimate feel.

    The Historic Maxwell Room created the wedding of my dreams. There is not enough praise I could write, from the charm of the room (even before my own personal touches), the staff-especially Libby, the food and the results, this is the place that my wedding memories are built on. After searching high and low throughout South Florida, my husband and I knew this was it from the moment we walked in the door. Loved the Maxwell Room. Thanks Libby and staff!

    What a wonderful venue, our wedding was perfect and Libby did such a great job in making sure of this. Planning a wedding remotely is not easy, and I am so glad Libby was able to accommodate all of our needs. Aside from the staff, the Maxwell Room is such beautiful; A private, romantic, rustic location hidden in Fort Lauderdale. We had our ceremony outside by the bay and it was absolutely gorgeous. I was concerned about the restaurant right beside where the ceremony took place but once it all started, they were very respectful of the event, and hearing claps and congratulations from strangers made it that much more special! For food we had a duet of Skirt steak in chimichurri sauce and Grilled Mahi Mahi in mango sauce- simple delicious! I would definitely recommend this venue!

    My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner here at the Maxwell Room and can I tell you it was perfect! What a beautiful venue. If it wasn't for the amount of people invited to my wedding, I would have gotten married at this venue. What a perfect location for a wedding and/or rehearsal dinner. The service was great. My family really enjoyed themselves.

    We could not have picked a better venue for us - our first and last stop when looking for a wedding venue was the Maxwell Room - we knew right away it was the right fit for us. We had both our wedding ceremony and reception there and it was truly beautiful! The venue is gorgeous - it's not the white stucco plain location at all - the venue has so much character inside and out. It's a great location on the water with beautiful views that made for gorgeous wedding photos. And to top it all off, working and planning with Libby was truly a joy. She's very responsive and her and the venue offered many options that fit well for our unconventional wedding. The staff on our wedding day was great and the prices are very reasonable - especially for the area. Thank you, Libby - we'll always be grateful and can't wait to throw another party there!
