Destination Wedding Designed, Old Met was created for the large rehearsal dinner (60-90p) or the downtown reception/ceremony.
Opened in early 2013, Old Metropolitan Hall is downtown Charlottesville’s premiere gathering space for private celebrations. Once the site of the Old Metropolitan Cafe, a popular watering hole during the 1940s and 50s, the artfully restored space showcases two floors of incomparable beauty and design. Elegant and versatile, Old Metropolitan Hall features an expansive upstairs dining space displaying aged wood floors, 14-ft ceilings adorned with their original antique tin tiles, and white-washed walls, all exquisitely lit with era-inspired glass chandeliers. Downstairs opens up onto a more intimate space with black and white diamond flooring, a custom built-in bar, exposed beams, and enough room for your DJ or band. Whether dressed in white linen and cascading florals or with rustic details and bare farm tables, Old Metropolitan Hall provides the perfect venue for your wedding, gala, fundraiser, reception, or next unique event.
