    Everything we wanted and more...

    Where do I even start? Everything about our experience at The Thaxton was amazing, from start to finish. Kim was very professional throughout the planning process and responded promptly to email communications. She worked with us every step of the way, to help us bring our ideas to life in this unique space, on a very short time line. She took time to answer all of our questions and quickly addressed any concerns, which put my mind at ease. We decided to have both our ceremony and reception at The Thaxton (instead of just one or the other) and it was the best decision ever! The décor, artwork, lighting and architectural details combined make this a beautiful, romantic, one-of-a-kind event space. We didn't have to spend too much on our own décor because The Thaxton is already so beautiful the way it is! We love everything about this space and there are some great backdrops for wedding photos. Mad Dog was a great host! He and Kim made sure everything ran smoothly on our big day. Kim checked in with me constantly, throughout the night to make sure I had everything I needed. All of the staff at The Thaxton are simply amazing and delivered top notch service in every area. They all work very hard to make sure guests at The Thaxton have the best experience possible. They sure know how to throw a party! I am so grateful we were able to have our event at The Thaxton and we can't wait to plan our next event here!

    Ledoux/Claussen wedding October 2019

    Amazing! is the word that suits the best for our " Thaxton experience".
    The team was excellent, Kim always available and a special thank you to Mad Dog.
    Everything went smoothly. The Thaxton was the "WAW! " factor we needed.

    Perfect Wedding and Reception

    We had our wedding and reception at The Thaxton on 3/7/2020. It was just perfect! Kim, Mad Dog and all the staff were excellent throughout the entire event.My guests had a blast and were raving about it the next day. I’m so happy we chose The Thaxton as our venue. I can’t say enough good things about this space, Kim, Mad Dog and all the staff members. Dj Uptown kept the party going and the crowd engaged. I’m actually sad it’s over! You did a great job and we will be forever grateful for the wonderful memories you helped create.

    Awesome Venue

    Everything about The Thaxton was awesome. Kim was very helpful and responsive from the very first meeting. She answered every question we had throughout the planning. Mad Dog was an awesome surprise to have as an additional guide on our wedding day. The whole venue was perfect for us. The decor at the Thaxton is perfect/beautiful and made it so we had to buy very little decorations. I would also recommend using the house DJ - DJ Uptown - if you are looking for a DJ. I hope
    I get a chance to go back someday!

    Amazing, Felt like a movie

    I loved this Venue !! This is clearly a place that throws parties. It was such a cool unique space with multi-level accommodations that were perfect for the vibe we had. Many of my guest left saying, I want to throw a party here. As well as telling me I need to have another event again next year. I cannot say enough good things about this location. If you are looking for something outside the box, this is absolutely your place. I can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of my wedding reception. My host, bartenders, DJ were phenomenal! Thank you, for making my night!

    Memories Made at Thaxton

    As a friend I was helping to put together a 25th wedding anniversary event over the weekend. One of the top priorities was to find a venue which has a character and not the stereotype ball room. The personalities of the couple was also completely different. One the old world charm and quiet and the other crazy, fun loving, full of life. So it was important to find a venue which had color, character, a bit of history, a bit artistic, not to mention convenience, great staff, accessibility and a bit of flexibility. We managed to find all these at Thaxton. The moment you enter the closed doors, you are in for a surprise. Romantic, colorful, subtle and you don't need any additional decor to add. More surprises, a beautiful mezzanine bar for a small gathering, and huge room for the bride or the groom. At the basement its a beautiful , spacious bar cum dance floor to dance your heart out. All these wrapped in this beautiful Art Deco wedding venue. Ideal for 80-100 guests with space for people to move and sit in groups. Kim who runs the place was excellent in terms of responding to mails, showing us the place more than many times without any tiredness, talking about the history of the place and most importantly guiding you through the whole event and not looking for opportunities to add more cost. Right from the first time we communicated till the event day it was a wonderful experience to get immediate response and everything arranged perfectly on the day of the event. Her team members were excited, willing to help always and making one feel part of the family. Special mention goes to Bryan, Sam at the Bar, Maddog in logistics. The place was clean, people were friendly and professional, and enough parking lots around the venue . Kim was there throughout the event and managed the whole show to perfection. It s a perfect venue and if you want to soak in a bit of history, romantic, artistic, rocking ambience you found all these in this venue. Thank you Kim and team for the wonderful memories.

    The most unique and beautiful venue!

    Our wedding was June 22, 2019 at The Thaxton. We enjoyed every moment of our day at this venue! It's such a unique space and feels as if you're living a party straight out of the Great Gatsby! Kim was an amazing coordinator. You can tell she knows what works and what won't in the space. She made every step of the planning process simple and made sure our evening went beautifully. I can't thank her enough for her assertiveness and the way she orchestrated our evening! If you are looking for an a venue that makes your wedding planning a breeze and a memory you'll never forget this is the place!

    absolutely perfect

    The Thaxton was the perfect location for our wedding and ceremony. They were very easy to work with, very accommodating, and very fun! The space is so unique it really didn't need additional decorating.
    Wasn't expecting the couples champagne they provided at our sweetheart table either, so that was a lovely and unexpected surprise. 11/10

    We got married at The Thaxton 9/22/18 and it was unbelievably amazing. Everything went exactly as we wanted it to. The staff are true professionals and are SO on top of everything and super accommodating. We were blown away by how smoothly everything went. Kim, Mad Dog, and Tayvon made our night amazing. Every time we need ANYTHING Tayvon was right there with another drink or plate of food. The DJ (DJ Uptown) kept the party going. If you want a party, this is the venue to pick.

    We celebrated our daughter's 21st birthday in Gatsby style at The Thaxton Speakeasy and it was absolutely the perfect venue! We loved it! The decor was beautiful. Kim, our event coordinator was very accommodating and so helpful throughout the planning process and night of the event. Many thanks to her for making the celebration very special and a huge success! Also the supporting staff were very helpful and friendly which added to the success of our party. Kudos to Mad Dog, the doormen, AJ & and our bartenders!

    My husband and I had our wedding and reception at the Thaxton on 5/6/17. The day could not have gone more smoothly and that is due largely in part to the wonderful staff at the Thaxton. During the planning phase, I was blown away with how organized Peter (the owner) was. He knew exactly how our evening would flow the best and made great suggestions based on our needs. He was also always extremely responsive and helpful via email during this time. He was present to lead our rehearsal at the venue the day before the event, which as a nervous bride, put my mind at ease that everything was under control. On the day, we were able to access the venue early to take photographs, which was ideal due to our timeline. Throughout the evening him and his staff, notably Mad Dog, lead the evening flawlessly. Mad Dog's attention to detail was remarkable, including ensuring my husband and I were happy and being taken care of throughout the evening. We received nothing but praise from our guests on their experience at our event. The venue is absolutely unique and gorgeous. Our photos came out amazing. I could not be more happy with our experience here and would absolutely recommend this venue for not only weddings, but any larger event. We cannot begin to express our thanks to the venue staff!

    The Thaxton is a beautiful building, but the staff makes it very special. Every time I thought of something else that needed to be done, Peter said that was part of their normal service. Their superb service made our son's wedding everything we and the bride and groom wanted. The Thaxton is definitely a 5 star venue!

    This was the perfect wedding venue for us. It is such a beautiful and unique space. Peter, Kim, and Mad Dog were so easy and wonderful to work with. They made sure our wedding was the event we wanted it to be. The Thaxton has several different levels which made for a really cool party. Each level is different and allowed our guests to do what they wanted to do whether it was just sit and talk or relax in the lounge or dance the night away downstairs. The staff are all so professional and experienced with event planning and I never felt like I was being cheated or swindled like I did with some other venues. Such a cool space. Highly recommend.

    My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at The Thaxton last weekend. From the moment we walked in, we knew this was the place! It was the first and only venue we even toured. We knew we wanted a spot that would accommodate the ceremony and reception all in one, that also had availability to do food stations. Peter had a vision for us immediately - he drew a mock up floor plan, walked us through the schedule for the evening, told us how the dance floor would work - and this was all on our first tour! From then until the day of, he answered my countless question and gave me comfort in our decisions. On our wedding day, Peter and Kim collaborated with my vendors to turn the facility into the most magical place we could imagine. The ceremony was warm, romantic and whimsical. They flipped to the reception, and the room was buzzing with excitement from all our guests. I can't even imagine how many times I had guests come up to us and compliment the venue. We even heard that it was the most beautiful wedding some had ever attended. To top it all off, Mr. Mad Dog swept us off our feet. He was attentive to us, provided us guidance throughout the night for where we should be, and even brought us drinks when we needed them. He was touched by our vows, and we could tell from the start that our night truly mattered to him. The Thaxton turned our dreams into reality. If we could live in that moment forever, we would. There is not one thing we would change, and we owe it all to Peter, Kim and Mad Dog!!

    My husband and I were recently married (ceremony and reception) at The Thaxton, and we absolutely LOVED our experience there! From the very beginning, Peter helped us to coordinate our wedding day at the venue. He was always available to answer any questions we had and was incredibly helpful with suggestions. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch. Mad Dog did a fantastic job keeping the night flowing from one event to the next, and he was with us at every key event to make sure my husband and I knew exactly where we needed to be at what time. Peter, Kim, and the rest of the staff kept everything running smoothly the entire night. The night was totally stress free for us and our guests. Everyone could not stop talking about how gorgeous and unique The Thaxton was and how smoothly everything ran. We truly had a perfect evening, and we will never forget our absolutely wonderful experience there. We are so happy we booked The Thaxton- there is no other venue like it! Thank you for giving us an amazing, unforgettable wedding!!
