The Hippodrome basement is a unique and exquisite venue to host a wedding reception. We were very impressed with Shaina’s communication throughout the planning process. It was easy to make changes to ... Read more the layout and even our rental and set-up times. We chose to do a prepaid amount on the bar but unfortunately didn’t spend as much as we pre-paid for. We didn’t know that it was non-refundable until after we had paid. Lesson learned. My advice to future renters, start with a lower budget for the bar and work your way up so you’re not out $100 or more. We also would not recommend using their AV system as your only source of music for the night. We created a carefully timed spotify playlist in lieu of a DJ and deeply regret this decision. There were long periods of silence during the reception and we heard the same 5 songs more than 3 times each. After talking to the house manager/bartender about starting the music back up or changing a song, they would replay an already played song. Save yourself the disappointment and hire a DJ. These couple things aside, we would strongly recommend the Hippodrome’s basement for your next event. We highly recommend doing the "light" package and the GOBO. The blue lights and personalized decal made the night.

This venue was absolutely amazing for our wedding reception on 3/10/18. The new rentals coordinator, Shaina, is extremely accommodating and sweet. We had a 4 hour reception plus 1 hour set up and 1 ... Read more hour breakdown time (mandatory). The place is very reasonably priced, with the only downside being that you have to use their alcohol (ended up spending more here than on the actual venue - ~$1900) because of it being a government owned building. However, the bartender had great service throughout the night. The venue had a built in sound system and projection screens as part of their AV package, which both worked beautifully. Their lighting package with the wall washers is a neat effect too. We totaled at 108 guests and the venue was definitely at its limit. They can seat up to 120 but that would get very crowded. Everyone had an amazing time and we would highly recommend this place to anyone.

My husband and I had our wedding reception in the Hippodrome basement in April of 2011.
