Plan your best group event in Richmond, VA
The 8,000 square feet interior of The Broadberry was chosen as "Best Locally Owned Live Music Venue" by Richmond Magazine in 2015 for its state-of-the-art sound system, surround sound and lighting. This innovative private events space has hosted a variety of unique events since it opened in April 2014. Past events have included Yelp's Annual Holiday Event, sorority/fraternity formals, film wrap-up parties, silent auctions and wedding receptions.
We love their 60-foot bar - which means getting a drink order in isn't an issue. Part of the spacious interior can be cleared for a dance floor. But our favorite part of this hidden gem is that in addition to the interior and its 20' x 13' stage, the Broadberry offers an adjacent fenced-in patio that can host roughly 70 guests. This private outdoor area can be heated in the winter.
In the past The Broadberry has included slide-shows and audio recordings, hosted aerial dancers and created specialty food and drink menus to fit an event's theme. Refreshingly, The Broadberry's staff are "yes people" and pride themselves on helping clients create their ideal event. In the words of an events manager, "If you want to bring in 5 real evergreen trees for your Christmas party? Done! There's really not much we won't say yes to." For the event, hosts can either bring in your own entertainment or one of their event coordinators can help to find entertainment.
Sit-down events hold 150 people.
Cocktail-style (partially seated) events hold 270 people.
Standing events hold 400 people.
Included in the space are chairs, tables, staff, and a door representative and typically 5 hours of rental.
The Broadberry has one private dressing room/green room connecting to the stage with secured entry, comfortably fits 8-10 guests. The elevated area in the main room can be converted into a roped-off VIP section and privately enclosed.
The Broadberry can provide a tented patio, a DJ or band, valet parking, additional security, lighting, catering, deserts, and outside vendors.
Rentals are typically 5 hours, and can go up to 8 before incurring additional hourly fees. This time includes setup, breakdown and removal of all event items, including post-event cleaning by The Broadberry staff.
The Broadberry has several spots in a privately owned parking lot. Free parking during private events is also available at the Children's Museum one block away. Street parking is available and valet parking can be made available upon request.
The Broadberry can seat up to 100 guests for a ceremony held on stage. Chairs would be collected immediately following the ceremony and redistributed to the tables for dinner. Their patio can handle overflow of guests during that time. A reception allows more guests as the stage/dance floor will be cleared.
