Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked at the very center of charming Frederick, this former bank has been artfully transformed into a truly unique event venue, preserving all of its historic charm, while adding bespoke amenities fit for the grandest of parties.
  • Step through the striking columned façade to discover an interior of turn-of-the-century splendor—a soaring coffered ceiling, dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, original vaults, and ornate details of marble, wood, and gilt.
  • Flexible rental policies allow you use of the space for a full 16 hours, or the option to rent by the hour. You’re welcome to bring in vendors of your choosing, and an on-site manager will help ensure everything runs smoothly.
