The Old Met and Stay Charlottesville (the property owner) provided wonderful rental locations both for our reception and for our stay while in Charlottesville (bridesmaid house, honeymoon apartment, and bridal suite for the day of the wedding).
Old Met was the perfect spot for an elegant downtown wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better location on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall (plus no need to bus anyone anywhere like with a vineyard)! The space inside is beautifully decorated, easily customizable, and the split levels created a fun opportunity to do a lounge and bourbon bar downstairs and keep the upstairs free for the dance floor. The best part of all was the OMH staff. I couldn't have asked for a better, more responsive, or more professional events team. Our wedding was a once in a lifetime event but if it wasn't, we would go back to Old Met over and over again.
We used Old Metropolitan Hall as a venue for our Moonlighting App Launch Party. The venue was spectacular and the Old Met Hall team was extremely responsive and accommodating to all of our needs. The event went off without a hitch in large part to the flexibility of the space and the Old Met Hall Team. Would highly recommend this space to anyone interested!

Amazing, amazing, amazing! We held our 90+ rehearsal dinner at Old Met and planned the event from Colorado, having only been to Charlottesville once. We are so blessed to have found this venue and especially Sarah who handled everything from start to finish. The space is fabulous! Not only is there the main space for their beautiful long wood tables, but we loved the downstairs space/bar area for appetizers/drinks and the "after hours" party. We used their projector for a slideshow with microphone for toasts and Sarah made all the accommodations easy and stress-free. The space is elegant enough that decorations are really not necessary, but we chose to decorate the front window and again, Sarah had great suggestions. It's a great feeling after the event to be able to say that you wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Old Met for making this memorable for our family and friends!
