We are a hidden gem on Main Street in Historic Ellicott City and are located on the lower level of 8307 Main Street. The best way to find us is to head to lot D at the intersection of Hamilton and Main. We are on the lower level of the Su Casa building. We have three reserved spaces out front for you to use. We suggest having your guests park in lot D with additional overflow parking in lots E & F as well as the Courthouse across the street. Parking in Ellicott City is always free!


How much does the main street ballroom venue cost?


You can find our full day pricing online here. We only book full day events until 120 days or less from the event date, then we start accepting hourly bookings. You can find pricing for hourly bookings here.

How long will we have the venue for?


Our full day rentals come with an unprecedented 16-hour rental window of 8am-midnight! That leaves you plenty of time for setup so that you can relax and get ready on-site in our two in-house dressing suites. We like to say that besides making a lifelong commitment, the biggest source of stress on your wedding day will be time and that’s the one thing we can help with :)

What's included in the price?


  • 8am to 12 midnight rental (16 hours!). Get ready on-site, no rush, less stress.
  • Bring your own caterer: control your menu, no per-person minimums
  • Bring your own alcohol: no marked up bar packages
  • Access to our exclusive vendor discount list.
  • An on-site venue manager to oversee the venue and setup and breakdown our furniture
  • Tables & chairs for 120
  • Two dressing suites
  • Furniture and details: bar, cocktail tables, bistro lights, wifi, sound system
  • Three reserved parking spaces for clients. Parking is free in Ellicott City for guests.
  • do we have to stick to a list of caterers? Can we bring anyone we want?


    We are one of the few venues to welcome all licensed and insured caterers. We do have a Short List of caterers that we recommend based on their excellent level of service and quality of food but there’s no penalty for not using one of them.

    Here are a few helpful things to keep in mind when selecting a caterer:

  • Let them know our super long rental window when booking. Having a bigger window for load in and load out may save you money. Ask about this with other vendors as well including florists and event rentals.
  • Make sure they provide trash service and stay through the end of your event. We do not have trash cans or dumpster access so they will need to take it with them at the end of the night.
  • They need to provide their own equipment. We do not have a kitchen, only prep space.
  • We strongly recommend scheduling a walkthrough with your caterer 30 days before your event date. If they haven’t worked at our venue before, please schedule a walkthrough with them before booking them so you know if they are a good fit for our facilities.
  • What are your rules about alcohol?


    We allow you to purchase outside alcohol, whether it’s through your caterer or a retailer. This will help you avoid a markup and save you a ton on your overall budget. All alcohol must be served by a TIPS or TAMS certified bartender (no self-serve), which can be provided by your caterer or a third-party service and the bartender must have host liquor liability insurance.

    Do you provide tables & Chairs?


    Yes! We are so glad you asked because not only do we provide tables and chairs for 120 (our capacity is 300 we just don’t have the storage for more), we also have an incredible selection of gorgeous furniture for you to use at no additional cost! From bars to cocktail tables and an antique architect desk, there are so many accent pieces that you would spend thousands on anywhere else.
