• In the late 2000’s, we realized we needed a venue to call our own and set off on our adventure searching around the heart of Richmond. We wanted a setting that was beautifully classic, spacious, and right in one of the most intriguing areas around.

    In January of 2001, we took The Renaissance as our own with one of Richmond’s largest Victorian Ballrooms.
    Our new home even came with a pedigree! It was completed in 1887, as the Masonic Temple... and boy what a life it had! The Richmond newspapers spoke volumes over the years of the elegant affairs and events hosted here. Even Theodore Roosevelt, the namesake of our “Roosevelt Grand Ballroom”, graced the property in 1905 when he and his wife came through Richmond on his tour of the southern states.

    Today as you enter the Grand Foyer with its gorgeously painted sky and cloud ceilings, as well as the murals and oil paintings, it feels as if you walked through a doorway to a glorious past.

    Our Roosevelt Ballroom features a marvelous 30-foot ceiling, three hypnotizing Holland imported chandeliers, and dazzling floor-to-ceiling palladium windows. The Adams Room will accommodate smaller parties, a cocktail hour for receptions, and a beautiful wedding ceremony for up to 140 guests.

    With our favorable downtown location in the new Art's District, parking is convenient and central to most downtown hotel rooms that are needed by any of your guests coming from out of town.
