Rehearsal Dinner for 90 at the Speakeasy! - An Eventective User

Our event was a huge success thanks to Ron and his fabulous staff! The Speakeasy is such a unique space, the food was spectacular and at the end of the evening, no one wanted to leave! An awesome experience from start to finish!

Rawles Johnson Family Reunion - An Eventective User from Richmond, Virginia

The Hippodrome staff was very accomodating. Loved the venue. Charming, elegant and eclectic. It felt as if we were transported back to 1920's & 30's. A very pleasant experience for us the planners and our family members. Highly recommend!
