"One of my new favorite venues to work at EVER! The boutique appeal allows couples & corporate clients alike to create a custom event to meet their needs. As a vendor & planner I say with conviction that owner Kate & her team are a pleasure to work with - flexible and accommodating. They extend this mentality to their dealings with clients and the community as well. The transformations that happens at MSB are magical. Thank you Kate for being our blank canvas allowing us imagine such beautiful art."
"I booked MSB site unseen. Totally worth the gamble - the venue and staff are completely amazing! I'm so glad this was the backdrop for our big day.
Absolutely stunning venue! You get to create your own little piece of heaven. Laura and Kate were absolutely amazing every step of the way."
"Amazing space for any occasion! Kate is great, and very helpful."
"Have visited several times for events, like their open house and the big fake wedding they hosted, a venue tour, and cannot wait to get married here next year! Stone walls, concrete floors, grey and white woodwork, with huge windows at the front. Even the bathrooms are pretty. And LOVE the bridal suite!!! The venue is gorgeous front to back, and their friendly policies leave it up to me to decide which vendors to use. My favorite is the view right outside into the river that runs by it, or maybe that they have a "secret" exit so we can quietly escape to make a grand entrance through the front."
"We were the first or one of the first to book out date in 2016 before the grande opening in 4/2017! We saw the vision and believed in Kate immediately! She has done an amazing job with adding the portable patio, side entrance stairway, barn doors, bridal suite, chandelier and so much more! We are proud of her success! Our event was simply amazing! Our planner set up Pipe & Drape so there would be a reception reveal and it wowed everyone! We had everything on site- ceremony at barn doors, cocktails on the patio, reception behind the draping. Our colors of wine, champagne and gold popped against the earth tones of Main Street Ballroom!"
"I loved working with this venue!!! Kate and Laura are truly for the bride and groom and do everything they can to make it the easiest part of planning (if there is an easy part in planning). They have prompt responses, sweet attitudes, and not to mention Historic Ellicott City is gorgeous and there are plenty of photo-worthy spots around the venue. If I could have every special event in my life celebrated here I would! Wonderful service, very professional, totally worth every penny. I HIGHLY recommend."
"As the 1st bride, of the 1st wedding, of the VERY FIRST event at Main Street Ballroom (MSB), I am compelled to share my experience with this very special place with all those who are out there making a decision on where to marry the love of your life. If you are like me you are feeling a bit overwhelmed and an extreme amount of pressure on how to pull this big day together. Venue was the first thing I looked for when planning and MSB was such a blessing to stumble upon! Their policies are like no other because they have a FOUNDATION OF FLEXIBILITY. I found other venues just told me what we can't do while the staff of MSB was always telling me what we could do and how they could help and accommodate. Other venues we looked at had restrictions on start times and vendors which I feel benefitted the venue and not US. We had a lot of DIY decor for our wedding so the ability to get into the venue at 8am the day of the event was so important. MSB has natural charm and unique features and you can truly create any atmosphere you imagine- rustic, elegant, modern,etc. We went for an industrial chic look and my guests praised the feel of the venue, it felt so special and exclusive. MSB has an adorable bridal suite full of all the accommodations you don't realize you need until: your phone battery is low (charging station), you can't put your dress on without sitting down (plush couch), you need some privacy to change (curtain section in corner) and your best girlfriends need to look their best too (several mirrored changing stations). Kate, the Owner, and Laura, the Director, were fantastic to work with! They were responsive to every request and question and were invested in making our day special. When I mentioned concern with my guests finding the venue they illustrated a map and posted it on their website and had 3 new directional signs made! I found them to be extremely resourceful and full of good ideas on how to utilize the space to match our vision."
"Great place for all kinds of events! We had a cocktail party, it was great with lighting. Staff was so welcoming!"
